Smoking should be banned in all public places

Extracts from this document...


Smoking should be banned in all public places Every year thousands of people die because of having cancer or other tobacco related illnesses due to smoking. Smoking is seen everywhere from our own television screens to even the world wide web; the internet. Tobacco is the substance that is in these cigarettes. These tobacco products are promoted through tobacco ads that are found almost everywhere you turn. They are in magazines, television screens, on the internet and even on cigarette boxes themselves. Alas, their tobacco ads do not tell the whole truth. Thus, many people fall prey to these tobacco cigarettes and once they try one cigarette, they are hooked on it. The reason this is so is the nicotine present in it, which is a kind of drug. So now, as you can see many have been addicted to the habit of smoking. Nowadays in almost all parts of the world has much controversy because people some people agree about smoke in public areas, but others who do not smoke complain about that; so much so that it has now become an issue. ...read more.


This shows that smokers do not even know or bother about the consequences that their smoking brings. I think the only way that they would become conscious of this is if smoking is banned in all public areas. Another thing is that if smoking was to be banned in all public places, it would force these smokers to smoke lesser and to eventually quit smoking. Smokers would then grasp that they can only smoke in a particular area that is private and personal; like their own rooms. However, since many people spend most of their time at public places they would not be able to smoke a lot causing them to reduce the amount of cigarettes they smoke in a day. This may cause some side effects due to their addiction of nicotine. Nevertheless, they still can deal with it by chewing sweets and doing other things to keep themselves busy and if they do not smoke any further, they may eventually end up quitting smoking. Once these smokers quit smoking, they would no longer be affecting the environment, any innocents or even their loved ones. ...read more.


So I do not see the reason that this statement of banning smoking in all public areas cannot be put into action. In conclusion to the topic that smoking should be banned in all public places, I feel that it should be something that should be put into action. It is the only way smokers may reform their ways and start afresh. Although many others may also argue that air pollution does occur due to other factors, smoking is also a factor encouraging air pollution. So why not try stopping it while we can right now by taking a stand that smoking should be banned in all public places and turn it into a action that would prove the best all round? Smoke is very bad and the government should not authorize smoking in public places at all. It not only affects the people who smoke but also other innocent people. Moreover, if you smoke, you would have to think more about not only your own health but also for the other people whom you live with and who are around you. So, all in all, I conclude that smoking should be banned in all public places. ...read more.
