Bad news: Sweden ready for the great stubbing-out.

Sweden will introduce a ban on smoking in all bars and restaurants at the stroke of midnight on Tuesday, joining a growing band of European countries seeking to reduce the number of people who light up and limit the risks of second-hand smoke. (TheLocal.se, 05/31/05.)

I had to smoke a cigar before the smoking ban took place. The picture is taken at The Cigar in Gothenburg. I smoked a Private Stock cigar from Dominican Republic. The title of the post is a parody of the "World No Tobacco Day."
