Some businesses and governments disallow smoking in the offices and public places. Do you agree or disagree with this statement?
Smoking is a health problem all over the world and can affect not only smoking people but also non-smoking since the smoke is dangerous. Because of that some countries are disallowing smoking in offices and public places. I totally agree with this idea for two reasons which I will examine in this essay. First of all, cigarettes are one of the main causes of lung diseases like cancer, and breathing problems. Obviously, if you are smoking in a public space, you will cause health problems in non-smoking persons too since the smoke is also prejudicial. Because of that people should not be allowed to smoke in public places around people that do not do that. In other words, smoking in public will not only hurt you but will also hurt somebody else. This can be best explained by my personal experience. When I was a child my uncle used to smoke very closed to me and I started to develop breathing problems because I was allergic to tacabo. Evidently, every time that he smoked around me I had difficulty breathing. If he would not be allowed to smoke in public, I would have not become sick. Second, the smell caused by cigarettes can not be good for someone. Obviously, tacabo has a strong smell that can be very annoying for people. Thus, if you don't like it you should not sense that just because someone likes to smoke. For instance, I hate the tabacco odor and I hate when people are smoking near me because I can feel it for the rest of the day. If you like to smoke you should do that in a private space. In conclusion, I definitely agree that governments disallow smoking in public spaces. I feel this way because I hate the tobacco's smell and because it can be dangerous causing diseases.
