Everyone is well aware of the fact that smoking is harmful to one's health. Scientists say that smoking is responsible for many diseases such as cancer, heart diseases and bronchitis. What's more disturbing about smoking is that it does not only affect those who do it but also people around smokers. Moreover, it's extremely unpleasant for a non-smoker to be around a person who is smoking.
That is why the government enacted a law a few years ago making it illegal to smoke in public places and transportations, but the law is hardly enforced. The authorities should try to enforce the law. We must also change our habits and learn etiquette. Only laws may not be enough.
