I always dislike staying in a place with tobacco smoke circling around me. That is because, as everybody knows, smoking is harmful to human’s health, and smelling the smoke is much more harmful. Therefore, I agree to the rule that smoking is not allowed in many public places and office buildings in some countries. This rule will not only help the public’s health but also help to create a better public condition.
First, this rule can reduce smoking in public and thus can benefit people’s health. For those who love and are even addicted to smoking, if they obey this rule, they will not be able to smoke in public places and office building where they usually spend a lot of their daytime. For those who usually feel like smoking when they see others smoking, this rule can prevent them from seeing others. Furthermore, for those who do not smoke, they will not have to smell the tobacco smoke any more. Thus, people will create a healthier place with no smoke by obeying this rule.
Secondly, the condition will be better for work if people obey this rule. By obeying this rule, people will gradually spend much less time on smoking and the complaints on smelling the smoke will be fewer. People can concentrate better to their work and work more efficiently.
I admit that some people will find it hard not to smoke for a long time. They need to be accustomed to it step by step. I suggest that special places for these people be set up where people can smoke. Since people cannot stay in that place too long during their work-time, their smoking time is also reduced.
Generally speaking, forbidding smoking help to create a better place for all the people, making people healthier and more efficient. Why not obeying it?
