Although smoking in public places is very common there are some people
who think that public smoking in certain places should be banned by law and I support
this idea. In my opinion it should be banned particularly in places where people eat,
where children are present, and in all confined spaces. First of all, the smoke of a
cigarette leaves bad smell on clothes and hair. But the awful smell is not the only
problem. Many smokers argue that it is their right to smoke. But what about the non-
smokers right not to inhale the smoke of a cigarette? It irritates the lungs and it has been
proved that passive smoking is extremely dangerous for the non-smokers health, too.
There is plenty of research showing overwhelming evidence that passive smoking can
cause cancer and other illnesses. Taking everything into account, I believe that the public
health is a very good reason to justify banning public smoking by law.
