Freedom to Live or Freedom to SmokeWhat have cigarettes done for societynothing but taken away millions of innocent lives Each year thousands and thousands of people die from either smoking or second-hand smoke Smoking has not benefited anyone but the tobacco companies They become rich while you are smoking away priceless years of your life Smoking not only kills the smoker but also kills the people around the smoker I am here arguing in favor of the outlawing of cigarette smoking Not for my sake or your sake for our sake Think about the children for a moment We spend more time in our homes than anywhere else So the thought of cancer-causing chemicals circulating throughout our houses and apartments can be quite unsettling Yet according to the Environmental Protection Agency that is exactly what happens when someone lights a cigarette in your home Those most affected by secondhand smoke are children Because their bodies are still developing exposure to the poisons in secondhand smoke puts children in danger of severe respiratory diseases and can damage the growth of their lungs On top of that the effects can last a lifetime Ventilation systems in homes cannot filter and circulate air well enough to eliminate secondhand smoke Blowing smoke away from children going into another room to smoke or opening a window may help reduce childrens exposure but will not protect them from the dangers of secondhand smoke Think about the children while you are supposedly enjoying that cigarette youre indirectly chopping away at your childs life spanWhen will people realize that cigarettes and tobacco have done nothing to help our society Some argue that the tobacco industry provided many hard working Americans with jobs That may be true but what do you value more your job or your life Others say that it is not illegal I am not breaking any laws One must be able to differentiate between their given rights as a civilian
