9. The production and sale of cigarettes should be made illegal
In my opinion it is also a very selfish act to smoke, especially around other people. If someone wanted to inhale smoke they would do it themselves, they don't need to be inhaling passive smoke from other people. Passive smoke is even worse than smoking itself because when you are taking a pull from a cigarette there is a filter on the fag but the person inhaling the smoke has no filter. How is this fair on the people around you?
Also as children grow up their parents are their idols and they tend to mirror their parents actions a lot. Can you imagine a child growing up with parents smoking? Not only is the child inhaling the smoke from the cigarette, but they are also watching their parents smoking and begin to think it's okay. As statistics show children whose parents smoke are twice as likely to begin smoking between the ages of 13 and 21. A child smoking at 13 years old! That's unbelievable! At that at that age they should be worrying about how many teenage spots they have not where they are going to get their next fag from!
Most people that start smoking don't actually know what they are inhaling. There is ingredients such as rat poison, kitchen cleaners, cancer causing radioactive elements and chemicals that are used to preserve dead bodies. Would you go into a shop and buy rat poison and just eat it? Or buy a bottle of bleach and drink it? No? So why do people smoke? It is so easy for them to become addicted and then they can't even imagine their lives without smoking. And this is when cigarettes become most lethal. As smokers increase the amount they smoke they are decreasing their life! Every smoke they have is taking 10 minutes off their lives. So if they smoke 20 cigarettes per day, that's 200 minutes gone off their life in just 24 hours!
To summarize I strongly agree with this statement as cigarettes kill their victims every day. You wouldn't go into a shop and buy a tin of beans that say "Beans can kill" so why would you buy cigarettes that say the same thing?
