Smoking ban in Greece - will it ever happen?

I live on a Greek island and have a 3 month old baby. I can't take her anywhere because in every cafe, resturant and shop people smoke. People smoke in the bank, the IKA offices, at cafes with a childrens play area, even the paediatrician smokes in his office. I was a smoker before I was pregnant, but had the common sense to stop and I would never smoke near children or babies.

I won't go to weddings or any other social occasions with my baby as I know we will have to endure tens of people smoking around us. Why is Greece so far behind the rest of Europe when it comes to things like this?

Will there ever be a ban on smoking in public places in Greece? Does anyone have any info
