Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

Much of this work looking at the pros and cons of smoking is satisfactory. As the unit information for this work is not available, I will make general comments as to how to the work could be improved.
A good introduction would be beneficial as it would allow the reader to understand the purpose of the essay. Please check spelling and grammar carefully as there are several errors that affect the readability of the work. Remember that gender actually refers to the behaviours attached to either sex, hence when a sex is treated unfairly it is known as sexism. Add a full stop at the end of each sentence.
