Since people discovered tobacco, smoking has been the major joy for most men around the globe. Smoking is said to perk people up while they are down and sleepy as well as to show their identities for different cigarette brands indicate different social classes smokers are in.
However, smoking has been proved to be very harmful to both smokers and others around them.
On the one hand, smoking kills. Every year, tens of millions of people die of smoking related diseases. Lung cancer, the prime human killer, is caused by thousands of thousands of cigarettes. What's worse, people living or simply working around smokers are more dangerously threatened. Second-hand smokers are more easily to get lung cancer and other smoking-related diseases because their families puff every day. Dramatically increased death rate of urban areas, according to the press, is a major result of ever-increased smoking population. Being epidemic in nature, one people lighting up will make three or more affected.
While on the other, the tobacco industry is the most lucrative money-makers for lots of governments locally. Take Yunan Government for example, the annual revenue that government gets comes primarily from tobacco industry. As a result, the prohibition of smoking will never be implemented by governments like that in Yunan. Besides, smoking is very addictive. Smokers around the world are very reluctant to accept policies prohibiting smoking, especially in enclosed areas such as karaoke or restaurants. This makes it even more difficult for governments to push forward initiatives to ban smoking.
In order to help ban smoking and save as many lives as possible, I hereby offer several solutions. First, NGOs should do their utmost to help governments lift the public awareness of the dark sides of smoking. Second, cigarette makers should invest a certain amount of money to invent and produce less harmful cigarettes since the complete ban of smoking is not applicable currently. This action in turn would benefit cigarette makers as the public awareness of health goes up.
In short, smoking is detrimental to people's health profoundly. All governments and public organizations should play their part in helping people to be on their guard against smoking related diseases. All people should act in favor of their own health as well as their loved ones' wellness. Only in this way may we enjoy a clear and fresh life!
