泰國政府的目的是鼓勵吸菸者戒菸或去參加戒菸課程。據泰國菸草控制研究和知識管理中心研究顯示，吸菸者有 33% 的人在家抽菸，當中又有高達 74% 人是天天在家都哈抽。
除此之外，泰國政府也禁止在醫院、公園、教育機構、寺廟、動物園、遊樂園，以及包含巴達雅、普吉島、華欣等 24 個知名海灘等地吸菸。泰國機場集團也在2019年2月宣布 6 個主要國際機場航廈內的吸菸室全面停用。
A study in Thailand found that nearly 33% of smokers puff away in their homes and that as high as about 74% smoke every day. According to the Ministry of Public Health, a total of 54,512 people died from diseases caused by smoking in 2018. Anti-tobacco campaigners make up efforts to make the home the environment free from the danger of cigarette and electronic cigarette smoke.
Smoking at home to endanger the health of others living under the same roof with second-hand smoke. In Thailand, smoking at home is verified as a form of domestic violence.
The Promotion and Protection of Family Institutions Act defines domestic violence as “any act a person in the family commits onto another for the purpose that may cause harm to life, body, mind, health, freedom or reputation.” The law will come into effect on Aug 20 in 2019 in Thailand, which demonstrates the government’s determination to reduce deaths caused by second-hand smoke. The purpose of the law is to prevent severe hazards of second-hand smoke.
Thailand restricts smoking in both private and public spaces. Any person smoking indoors could face penalties from the government. Those who violate the law will be put either the juvenile or criminal courts. The court has the authority to order violators to stop smoking in the house and/or undertake a course to quit smoking. According to the law, the offenders has to undergo rehabilitation and quit smoking.
Is it possible for the kids or a wife/husband to sue their parent for smoking in the house?
