one of the greatest evil in the world is smoking at public places which should be resoluted through the legislation and law.although the lacs of people depend upon the cigarette companies but unfortunate is that somany of them die with the same. why not Govt is Banning the company at roots levels?so much awareness is given to masses but they are not able to give it up.The addiction of nicotine make people made of it.(kifayat)

Excuse me, but it is not evil to smoke in public places. It should not be outlawed. You're not allowed to smoke on my college campus, and if you're caught you're fined $25. If it IS going to be outlawed they at LEAST need to have designated areas for those who do smoke. It would be totally illogical to ban smoking altogether, we'd just go back to the days of prohibition. It would just be another way for the government to make money off of fines, and lose money just like the so-called war on drugs.

First of all, I agree with MissMetal. It isn't evil to smoke in public places. It may not be completly safe, or healthy for yourself or others, but it's part of being human; to choose what you want to do. If you take away these choices, and ones that have been available to us for so long, it's be simply foolish, and, again, agreeing with MissMetal, it'd just be another prohibition. Also, before you post, try to proofread so that it's actually legible.

Stop being so fond with this dirty stuff..why not take immediate actions to curb this addiction. It is a very careless habit exhibited in the public as well as in private arenas. Most importantly, it is detrimental to health so why consider smoking when it does nothing good...lets be conscious of our health welfare.
