Protecting non-smokers from secondhand smoke

Although some research studies have established a strong relationship between smoking and alcohol consumption, it is also important to pin point that not all alcohol consumers are smokers. It is interesting to learn that some liquor outlets in Malawi, like the one in the image above, which is located at Bwandilo in Lilongwe, recognize the harmful effects of smoking and have declared their alcohol drinking spaces as smoke free zones. Other liquor outlet owners should emulate from this thoughtful and good practice.
