Even though designated areas are set-aside for smokers this does not really protect a non- smoker.The heating and air conditions do not filter out carcinogens well enough and the smoke drifts onto non- designated areas.
Once a person is addicted to and dependant upon cigarettes, it is very difficult to quit.
Most users of tobacco products develop a tolerance to nicotine and require greater amounts to produce the desired effect, according to the National Cancer Institute.
Tobacco companies put ammonia in cigarettes, which opens up brain cells, causing the nicotine to be absorbed in greater amounts, which expedites the addiction.
These companies spend billions of dollars a year on marketing to get people hooked, and a majority of this advertising is targeted to young children and teens.
A little common sense would indicate that inhaling smoke cannot be good or healthy for the human body.
Cigarettes are highly addictive, both physically and psychologically.For a long time now many people have different views about smoking in public places.Smokers feel it is their right to smoke where and when they want.On the other hand non-smokers feel smokers violate their rights and endanger there life.Smoking causes heart disease, lung cancer and other serious illnesses.And not only are smokers putting their own lives at risk, but they are also placing the lives of those around them in serious danger.The majority of smokers are cognizant of the dangers of inhaling the poisons and toxins that deteriorate their health and those around them, and they either don't care or are so addicted to tobacco, that they are at an impasse to do anything about it.Restaurants and businesses should be allowed to set their own smoking rules, based on demands of the customers.Also business may decrease if they do not allow smokers the right to smoke, especially bars and restaurants.In Arizona five thousand and six hundred Americans died in 1989 due to passive smoke.By putting a smoke free policy into effect, it will send a strong message about protecting health.
