Modern society pays a lot of attention to the health of every single person. However, we do not enough resist such negative tendencies as smoking. I believe smoking should be banned and totally removed as a social event.
Recently lots of countries around the world increased limitations for sale of tobacco, increased the retail prices and shortened the list of places where smoking should be allowed, but much more should be done to eliminate smoking. The main reason to oppose smoking is its harm to the health of smokers, as well as to the so-called second-hand smokers, who are believed to be getting even more harm than the active ones. Every day we get new feedbacks from the scientists and researchers, dealing with the issue of potential harm from smoking. It is also a well-known fact that most of the movie stars who participated in advertising of cigarettes, in the 60-80s of the 20th century, died from the lung cancer, which proves the harm of smoking and leaves no other choice as to eliminate it from the everyday life. Some smokers say there is no harm from smoking if they purchase cigarettes of the luxurious brands or specially processed ones, containing fewer contaminants and chemical compounds. This idea is wrong, as smaller percentage of harmful chemicals still affects the human body in the most negative way possible. Eventually, the worst harm smokers do not to themselves, but to our next generations, our children, who are in potential risk of possession of the weakened immune system right from the birth. Smokers should think about the other people, not themselves only.
Smoking has no proven positive effects on the people. It affects both active and second-hand smokers, exposing the non-smokers to the potential harms about which they might not even know. Life without smoking would allow people make their lives better and happier than with the smoking.
