It causes ill effects on you and the rest of the population. Included in this article are my reasons as to why I think smoking should be considered totally illegal.
Smoking should be considered illegal because it kills many people around the world, enough said. The habit can greatly increase your risk of getting many deadly diseases and cancers. However, smoking won’t just be harming you. You will also be harming other people, due to passive smoking. Kicking the habit is very difficult, as the nicotine contained in cigarettes is highly addictive. This dangerous addiction is not only bad for your health but can also become expensive. I will be elaborating some of the major points I have just mentioned as you continue reading.
Smoking can cause a great number of diseases and cancers, for example- heart disease and lung cancer. Doctors say that most disease and cancer related deaths occur because of smoking. These preventable diseases and cancers kill many people around the world. This is my main reason why I think smoking should be illegal around the globe.
Smoking does not only harm yourself, you’re also harming other people. This is called passive smoking; it’s made even worse when it effects children who are still growing. These children will likely become ill or take up the habit themselves, which is a terrible thing to happen when people are trying to reduce the number of smokers.
Smoking is highly addictive; once you start you may find it very difficult to stop. This is what makes smoking deadly; you could keep on smoking while you’re sick because you may not be able to stop. Addiction is also a reason why tobacco companies get rich and thrive, they get their consumers hooked and they make their money. The tobacco companies are the main reason why smoking is very difficult to make illegal.
Even after all these warnings some people still continue to smoke, either they are hooked or they don’t really care. These are my reasons why smoking should be made completely illegal. Now I know what some of you may be thinking, alcohol is bad so why don’t we just make that illegal? Sugar is bad because it makes you obese, let’s make that illegal too. I get your point, but are there any positives in smoking? Please share your opinions in the comments below.
