Movie quote from: 200 Cigarettes (1999) - Kevin (Paul Rudd)
Never say that things don't change. Even the Germans have decided to recognize the problems of second-hand smoke. Cigarettes will still be allowed in the pubs and bars but politicians have conceded that perhaps smoking in schools and public sites is not good for the health of the nation.
There once was a time where smoking cigarettes was a way to 'join in.' Nowadays, smoke creates a barrier between people. Congratulations to all countries and individuals that proactively quit the habit. This is progress.
