Wecan see such signs as “No Smoking” in some public places, which is a kind ofmeasure taken to ban smoking in public places. However, concerning about thismeasures, different people hold divergent opinions. The smokers protest againstthat it is a kind of action to deprive of their free right, while thenon-smokers are in favor of banning smoking in public places.
Inmy opinion, I am inclined to support the latter one—smoking should be banned inpublic places. There are reasons accounting for my point. For one thing, peoplewill be harmed by the second-hand smoking if someone smokes in public places,especially the infants and children. For another, banning smoking in publicplaces is also beneficial to the smokers. If they are banned to smoke in publicplaces, they will restrain themselves from smoking and smoke less. In the meantime,it is a contribution to reduce the air pollution.
Therefore,I advocate that smoking in public places should be banned so that we canbreathe the fresh air and suffer less from the second-hand smoking. Let’s worktogether to create and sustain out green and fresh environment.
