Smoking is very harmful for the health of everybody. First of all, tobacco causes more illnesses than anything else, for example lung cancer, heart diseases and other serious illnesses. Also, smokers do harm not only for their health, but also for non – smoker’s health too. Moreover, tobacco smoke contains chemicals that induce mutations.
People begin smoking for several reasons. First of all, cigarettes are easily available; they can be acquired at a corner shop or got from a friend. Besides, a lot of people are under stress today, have to work very hard, they always have money and family problems and as a result they worry too much. People believe, that a cigarette can help them to relax. What is more, teenagers find smoking interesting and attractive because of the dizziness that they feel afterwards.
There are some factors that discourage people from smoking. First of all, it is very fine that cigarette promotions have been banned on television in several areas and there has been endless discussion of how to discourage children from taking the habit. Besides, gruesome films are shown of pathetic hospital patients in the advanced stages of lung cancer. Also, the anti – smoking companies can organize actions, which help a person to understand that smoking is really harmful to health.
There are three groups of people who smoke. First of all, some people smoke only sometimes, for example at parties, discos or bars. The second group of people is those who always smoke, because they are very nervous, they always have a lot of problems, they think that one cigarette can help to relax. And the third group is people who don’t smoke. But they know that people, who smoke, do harm not only for their health but also for non – smoker’s health too.
There are some reasons why smoking should be forbidden in public places. First of all, many smokers are selfish people, because there are many places where there is a ‘no smoking’ sign but a lot of smokers ignore it. Besides, when people smoke in public places, where there are people who don’t smoke, smokers do harm for non – smoker’s health, too. Moreover, a lot of smokers brake down their fags on streets. Finally our environment is being polluted.
