Smoking: Should it be banned?


Smoking is common in the world but it is not nice when it happens near you, so should it be banned? All smoke does is kill as it kills slow and painful, many people in the world die of smoking anything; cigarettes, spliff, joints. Tobacco smoking is the practice where tobacco is burned and the vapours either tasted or inhaled. Joint is a slang term for a cigarette rolled using cannabis. Rolling papers are the most common rolling medium among industrialized countries, however brown paper, cigarettes with the tobacco removed, and bible paper are commonly used throughout the world.

Arguments against the issue:

Many people in the world love to smoke and to make them feel cool and fit in with their friends. Also there are people who find smoking is okay they always smoke different types of smoking: spliff, joints, weed (marijuana), cannabis, cigarettes, pipe and more. It is a bad influence on children and it can cause injuries, but smoking mainly is for when you are depressed so just say if you were fired or you got dumped by your girlfriend then people would argue for smoking because they might think that it is a stress reliever.

Arguments for the issue:

People who don’t smoke would actually want smoking banned as there are no gains to smoking and besides it can cause serious illnesses such as; lung disease; cancer; heartburns; heart attacks and these are just some there are actually over 20 hidden diseases with the effects of smoking. Smoking kills around 114,000 people in the UK each year. Of these deaths, about 42,800 are from smoking related cancers, 30,600 from cardiovascular disease and 29,100 die slowly from emphysema and other lung diseases. Also here are some facts on what a cigarette has inside:
- Tar, a carcinogen (causes cancer)
- Nicotine, is addictive and increases cholesterol levels in your body
-Carbon monoxide, reduces oxygen in the body

These are just the damaging ones just imagine what others it has in it. Smoking also affects how long your life period is: Of the 300 people who die every day in the UK as a result of smoking, many are young smokers. Now here are some facts on what smoking can do: Smoking worsens asthma and counteracts, the blood vessels in the eye are sensitive and can be easily damaged by smoke causing a bloodshot appearance and itchiness, smoking stains your teeth and gums and causes swollen gums, bad breath and teeth to fall out.
In conclusion I would strongly keep my idea on banning smoking.
