Smoking Policy

Smoking is dangerous to health. It may lead to serious lung disease like lung cancer. In some country, people are
no longer allowed to smoke in many public places and office buildings. I my opinion, this is good rule because of two reason. I
t will not only reduce frequency of consumption but also passive adverse effect on public.

At first, smoking will be control per individuals. For example, I had a boss, who was the chronic smoker. he had to
go outside when he had urge to smoke. This used to keep him half of the time outside, rather than working in his office.
One day we had an seminar, and most of the people are from abroad, and he can’t leave the session for smoking.
This help to cut down his smoking to half during those few weeks of seminar. Now he is in mood to give up smoking.

Secondly, it is sure that the person who is smoking will be injured. On top of that, people who are staying with that
smoker also suffer from smoking. Here we can take an example of lady who used to smoke in office. She used to smoke in front of her
assistant. Once, WHO had conducted screening program for worker, on diseases related to lungs. Eventually they found, lung
problem on that assistant. They made the diagnosis on the basis of passive smoking because she was non smoker.

I want to conclude that, although such rule may have restricted freedom. This type of policy is helpful for
individual as well as public. It will not only reduce the frequency but also help to prevent the lungs disease
of people who are in circle of smoker. We have to support the government for inducing such type of policy.
