Smoking - right or wrong?

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Should Smoking be banned in public places? Smoking kills! Smoking is often a controversial issue. Everyone has the right to do what they want don't they? But no one has the right to kill someone else, do they? Yes, this may seem extreme but smoking is often the silent killer. Allowing smokers to inflict the consequences of their habit onto to those around seems preposterous.

I have suggested that first smoking should be banned from places such as restaurants and slowly expand this until no smoking is allowed in any closed public spaces. Don't forget that everyone's opinions matter, yes that includes you! So make a difference and take action. Statistics obtained from www.statistics.gov.uk ...read more.
