I read on Al Watan paper today that Kuwait will ban all smoking ads on TV, Radio, Cinema, Newspapers, Magazines, Billboards…etc. starting from August 2012. I think this is a great decision even some may consider it strict, I still remember seeing Marlboro cigarettes ads in Cinema and yes back then I was tempted to smoke at early age but thankfully it didn’t become a life habit.
Though I’m disappointed with smoking policy at the malls, airport, and hospitals where some still smoke not caring about rules. I remember in Dubai, smokers had to smoke outside Emirates Mall and abide by the rules.
