Hi Weng Fook,


Thank you very much for your question.

"Không hút thuốc" literally means "not smoke". So you can use it simply as a negative form of the verb "hút thuốc" (to smoke). For example, you can say: "Tôi không hút thuốc" (I don't smoke) or "Tôi muốn một phòng không hút thuốc" (I want a non-smoking room).


"Cấm hút thuốc" literally means "Smoking is forbidden", it expresses an obligation. This phrase is only used as a sign in public places.


I hope you'll find my explanation clear enough.

Please do not hesitate to ask me if you have more questions or concerns.


Have a nice weekend,

Giang
