Should The Full Smoking Ban Be Delayed?

Jan 02, 2009 – SCMP

I do not think the implementation of the full smoking ban should be delayed.

It is necessary to ban smoking in public areas, not just because it affects the health of people who are not smoking, but also because it is not good for the image of Hong Kong.

It is inconsiderate of smokers to light up in public places.

The best way to control this problem is to implement the full ban.

Most of us hate the smell of tobacco and non-smokers are at risk if they are exposed to second-hand smoke.

This problem will persist if the government delays the ban.

The sooner the full ban is implemented, the sooner smokers will learn to adapt.

I think the government should be willing to help those smokers who want to give up.
