Should Be Prohibited in Public
Rinswongkawang from Thailand explains why he
feels smoking should be regulated.
my opinion, smoking in public places should be
prohibited. There are many reasons that support
this point of view, but today I want to concentrate
on three reasons.
should have the right to smoke, but it's
not reasonable if that right is harmful to
reason is that is harmful for non-smokers, another
reason is that smoking is a cause of pollution, and
a reason is that smokers have other ways to receive
smoking is harmful for non-smokers. Smokers should
have the right to smoke, but it's not reasonable if
that right is harmful to others. Obviously, if
people smoke in public places, non-smokers have no
choice but to become secondhand smokers. Don't
non-smokers have the right to choose not to be
smoking is a cause of pollution. There is a lot of
research that shows that many kinds of gases that
are released by smoking and are harmful for the
environment, such as tar and carbon dioxide.
Everyone knows that now the environment is getting
worse and worse. Do you want smoking to be another
source of the problem?
smokers have other ways to receive nicotine.
Nowadays, we have many ways to receive nicotine,
such as nicotine gum and nicotine patches. Smokers
can use these products instead of smoking. Do you
really want people to smoke in public places
instead of using these new products?
conclusion, I want to say that there are no reasons
left to permit smoking in public places, and I also
think that maybe this is the time for people to
quit smoking. Banning smoking is not just for us,
but for this world and for everyone who has to live
in this world after us.
