SMOKING # task 2

           Smoking has become very common and fashionable, especially among young boys. This habit usually begins at school when boys try to experiment with every new thing that they can lay their hands on.
           Despite the warnings given by doctors about the ill-effects of smoking, people continue to smoke. smokers are addicted to it. Some youngsters smoke for the sake of society and some feel that would make them appear liberated and broadminded. In addition, they make the ads entertaining. They have people on the ads having a good time making kids think that is great to smoke. Alternatively, they have beautiful women making girls think that if they smoke, they will be just as beautiful. On the other hand, they have boy feeling that if they smoke they will have beautiful women as well.
                Tobacco companies are doing very well all over the world. Every packet og cigars or cogarattes has a warning inscribed in it: cigaratte smoking is injurious to health." Yet the smoker never reads this warning and even if he reads it he never pays heed to it.
                 Smoking is also a nasty habit that produces second hand smoke and may cause lung cancer, heart disease, and amphysema. Second hand smoke is produced from the smoke of a cigaratte and the exhaled smoke from a smoker. People that inhale second hand smoke can get the same health problems as smokers. Smoker don't think that when they are smoking they are endangering the lives of people around them who have chosen not to smoke. This is very selfish of them. Just because they don't care about their health does not mean others do not.
                Thus, in summary, smoking causes numerous illness which are expensive to treat it. It disturbs non-smokers and is an unhealthy addiction. Therefore, cigarattes should definitely be baned so as to make the world a better place for everyone.
