While non-smokers think that smoking should be banned in all public places and office buildings, smokers and some business owners think that smoking should be allowed in all public places and office buildings. When it comes to the issue of second smoke or passive smoking, the disadvantages of smoking clearly exceed the advantages of smoking. As a non-smoker, I am strongly convinced that smoking should be banned in all public places and private office buildings.

First of all, second hand smoke or passive smoking is taking a toll of non-smokers. Every year, fifty four thousands non-smokers die due to the passive smoking in America. Thousands of infants die due to clot death caused by second hand smoke, that is, a sudden and unexpected death of apparently healthy babies during sleep. For instance, a few years ago, my aunt, who never smoked a single cigarette in her life, died of lung cancer, apparently due to second hand smoke from her husband. It is fair for smokers to pay the consequences of smoking, because they chose to smoke and understood the risk associated with smoking. On the other hand, it is absolutely not fair for non-smokers to die due to second hand smoke.

Second of all, second hand smoke makes our foods smoky, make our clothes smelly, and cause us headaches. For example, the other day, my family had a dinner at a local restaurant, where they had both smoking section and non-smoking section. The problem was that there was no physical separation between the two sections, so that smoke from the smoking section drifted into the non-smoking section. First, the smoke spoiled the taste of our foods. Then, our clothes smelled like ash trays. To make the matter worse, it caused my brother a severe headache, which ruined our family night.

Last but not least, banning smoking at public buildings will reduce the death toll due to second hand smoke and will decrease the total medical costs, which may allow those who do not have medical insurances to have ones. Given that those fifty four thousand non-smokers do not have die due to second hand smoke, the financial savings of banning smoking at public buildings are so enormous that possibly all those who do not have medical insurances today may afford having ones.

In summary, while non-smokers agree that smoking should be banned in all public places and office buildings, business owners of bars and restaurants think otherwise, because banning smoking will reduce their income. However, considering the negative impact on our health due to second hand smoke, undoubtedly I am convinced that smoking should be banned in all public places and office buildings. Whereas each smoker has a right to smoke, each non-smoker has a right to live in a smoke free environment.
