Cigarettes are a huge part of many people’s lives and a familiar sight in today’s world. The Mayan civilisation chewed tobacco leaves and smoked, but they also mixed the tobacco leaves with other plants and herbs to make medicines. Columbus was probably the first European to see tobacco leaves and the first one to introduce tax on tobacco was King James I of England.
Even though tobacco was very much enjoyed in the ancient world, the first health warnings began in the 1950s. Today, the tobacco industry receives negative publicity and the people are informed about the addictive and deadly effects of smoking. In spite of all the warnings, a good cigarette is enjoyed by many around the world.
What do you believe, should Smoking be banned permanently?
I wish I never started smoking. It's such a disgusting habit. I hate knowing that I smell like a cigarette and other people can smell it on me, especially none smokers. I've tried to quit a few times, I hope to one day be successful in quitting. I would like to be a none smoker by the time I have children. I feel it's unfair to children to have to be around smoke and it's not safe to smoke whole pregnant. I also want to be a none smoker before my wedding.Smoking is just a waste. Has ruined my breathing. Big regret.

My, oh my, we sure do like to tell other people what they should or should not do. Last I knew, smoking was legal. I don't smoke, but I recognize that people do have that choice since it is a legal activity. If I don't like the smoke, I can move as easily as they can. Somebody else's drinking is much more dangerous to my well-being than their smoking.
Yes, second-hand smoke can cause lung cancer. However, if you don't smoke, you are much more likely to develop lung cancer from industrial pollution than from second-hand smoke.
There is nothing worse that smokers who quit because they think that just because they quit everyone else can quit. I do not smoke and never did however I think harping on people to quit many times makes it worse for this person and is not helpful. Just because one person was able to quit does not mean that another one has less will power or less self discipline, People in our society have been trying to make people feel guilty like this for ages and I think it backfires in helping people. It is not a matter of coddling someone but it is a matter of respecting that everyone has different capabilities and what one make think is easy is difficult for another. Willpower is not something you can touch, buy or wish for more of , it is very elusive and to start judging people on whether they smoke or not is just totally absurd, People who quit smoking are not somehow better than those who have not, nor do they have any more willpower.
I don't like being near the smokers because i end up caughing abnormally.It really bothers me a lot.My mum used to smoke and i barely persuaded her to stop.I don't think banning it would be muhc effective.I think people should have free will to decide whether they'll use it or not.If they decide not to use t, that is great achievemnet.
There's something to be said for total bans, just because if it's that bad for you, then maybe it should be illegal...at least in theory. But total bans are rarely effective. Look at how many people are addicted to illegal drugs. But strict regulations are probably still a good thing.
I was raised in a house/family full of smokers. Anyone I came in contact with smoked. Growing up I had little to no taste buds, and almost no sense of smell. My mom smoked the whole time she was pregnant with me too. Since I have been married for 3 years, which is also the length of time I have spent away from my family, I have been able to taste and smell more than ever. I believe that the weakness of my senses was due to all that smoke. I mean, now a days when someone lights up, my nose burns like crazy and I can actually smell it. I am not a smoker thank the Lord neither is my husband or his family.
All of this hating on smokers is too much. You want to say ban it or its a bad habit well so is that big mac you just ate, or driving 5 miles over the sped limit could kill someone, or whatever els you want to come up with. How about we sue McD's and jack up their taxes too?!
