If you smoke, you'll need to start putting out your cigarette before approaching a Starbucks.

Starbucks says it will ban smoking within 25 feet of its coffee stores beginning Saturday.

Starbucks says the new policy will help keep smoke away from customers in its outdoor seating areas.

The smoking ban will apply to all 7,000 cafes owned and operated by the Starbucks Corporation.
