This is the first post in a series of posts about making Indianapolis smoke free and making it an overall healthy place to live. If you have questions about this process or about quiting tobacco or other healthy lifestyle items, please let me know.

So you say; 'Aren't we already smoke free?'

The answer of course is No...

Indianapolis is smoke free in all businesses and restaurants and NOT in bars that do not allow anyone under 18 in, bowling alleys are not smoke free, nor are private clubs or private businesses that do not allow anyone from the public inside.

So now you say; 'Oh, so what do YOU want to be smoke free?'

The simple answer is every indoor public place.

According to the CDC secondhand smoke is the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States, simply put its a killer. So removing secondhand smoke from enclosed spaces makes it NOT a killer and makes Indianapolis a healthier place to live.
