Ok so us parents can't go to pubs then - a bit draconian I think seeing as most parents I know really need some time out!!
I don't think anyone can disagree with that- but there is a difference between taking the kids to a smoke free family restaurant and going to a smoky bar and getting trollied while the kids run riot. If you're going to get pissed, make sure the kids aren't around, simple as. I'm sure it's not always easy to get kids looked after when you want a drink, but if it comes to that then people have to go without. That's what having kids is- big sacrifices!
