Should The Full Smoking Ban Be Delayed?

Jan 17, 2009 – SCMP

The answer is absolutely “No”. The grace period that was allowed before implementation of the full smoking ban should not be prolonged.

Why are people so selfish? Everybody knows that smoking adversely affects our health and damages our respiratory system.

Non-smokers working in places where smoking is allowed are forced to inhale poisonous second-hand smoke. They are forced to sacrifice their health in order to feed their families.

Smoking is a selfish form of behaviour that exploits the basic human rights of others.
