Undoubtedly, smoking is hazardous for health, however, imposing a complete ban on it doesn't sound viable to me.

To begin with, cessation of tobacco producing industries will take away the jobs of several workers with it, thus, unemployment would rise to a certain extent. Other thing is that government's major portion of revenue comes from tax on tobacco products, therefore, the earnings of the government would also hamper.

So, in order to prevent people from smoking, firstly, various awareness programs should be launched which aware people about the detrimental effects of smoking. Moreover, the supply of these products should be reduced and to those below 18, it shouldn't be sold.

To conclude, by adopting above mentioned ways, it would be handy to curb people's crave for smoking without putting a complete ban on it.

In my point of view, smoking should be banned completely in India. Because it is a dangerous addition in India. Many people die and give their life in this dangerous consumption. They consume it for relief and enjoyment.

I think smoking should be banned completely in India. So I agree with the statement that smoking must be banned completely because the analysis had shown that due to the bad habit of smoking. A lot of people lose their lives which is not only that. But their children become orphans and their wife becomes a widow.

We often see that many boys who have not completed 18 years is smoking in a park or on a side of the road.

So I want to smoke should be banned completely in India.

Thank you.

In my opinion, smoking should be banned. As we all know that It's causes diseases cancer, lungs problem due to smoke but, if we do something suddenly so Its effect will have to negative so many people not in India also in other countries who does smoke, will have trouble because they have addicted of smoking even a new generation and our youth use only for fun. So govt should take steps like 15 to 20 who is between the ages shopkeepers cannot sale cigarette those children's.

If we talk about the positive way Cigarettes do not cause cancer. Who're people doesn't smoke They also have cancer even a Born child also. They don't smoke. And cigarette substances help and improve our economic conditions insubstantial. Smoking reduces our stressed. Govt will never ban smoking they can give only instructions and directions like written on a cigarette packet. It's injurious to health so don't smoke and We have studied in class every cigarette cut your life 5 mins. So it totally depends on do or die.

Cigarettes should not be turned off. Because now everyone knows that excessive use of car causes pollution and makes it difficult to breathe. However, we do not stop using the car. Also, for those who want to smoke, please drink. Cigarettes reduce work stress. And the one who suffers knows what the consequences will be. Also, the smoker will not come to you to ask for money. And his money will be used only for the country. Many people will lose their jobs due to the cessation of cigarettes. So, I am opposed to this.

Hi friends,

In my mind smoking should be banned because it is a dangerous addiction in India. Many people die and give their life in this dangerous consumption. They consume it for relief and enjoyment.

But it should not be completely banned because many people have employment in these industries. If they are banned then unemployment in India will increase. Their families will have to starve for food. So if smoking is banned then the government should go with a proper plan and we should prevent ourselves from smoking.

The term smoking means smoke that is injurious for health. Smoking in daily life with large amount is harmful. In my opinion, smoking is not just bad. In daily life, people can smoke over release their tiredness, stress etc. Some people smoke for their fun and some are when emotional stage. The poor people take lots of smoking in their life for their reliefs. The government should ban this for over smoking in state and their cause of high death rate. It should not completely ban.

We all know that smoking is injurious for health but our society is using as usual as we want. Our government gains so much revenue on that thing that is why our government can not ban completely. Many families are reaching the very worst condition because of smoking such type of things. Smoking makes a person internally very weak. According to me, people should self-aware on that because people is also responsible for itself's pros and cons also. People should try to avoid that type of things and think about themselves.

Hi friends.

It's a knowable question to all because smoking should be banned only in public place. Hence it does not ban completely. There is no response at the government, they can allow the people at some situation. The rules should be followed strictly. Here a lot of advice and ad can be created for their health care, but there is no usage of impact in public view. I conclude my point with smoking should not be banned completely.

Hello friends. According to me, smoking is not completely banned. People had awareness but they did not stop the smoking. Nowadays some people's thoughts are smoking is a fashion and style. They think it is the only thing to solve and forgot the problem they had. Some advertisement like cinema etc says smoking is injuries to health but they show the person smokes the cigarette with style. This is all the things are seen daily. So the smoking people's are increased daily. Nowadays school children also smoke because in the cinema etc. How the person smoke means they like a one person and that person what do and this person also do the same thing. Mostly today people follow the cinema what the actors do people also do the same thing. In my point, of view first, the actors take awareness to stop the smoking in acting then only stop the people's. These steps are taken I think smoking should be banned completely.

Hello friends,

According to my opinion, smoking should not be completely banned but there should be some restriction on smokers.

Friends we know that in today's time smoking is coming up like as a fashion which can be dangerous for us.

We often see that a boy has not completed 18 is smoking in a park or on a side of road. That boy does not know the side effects of smoking but he is smoking to show up and with a few times this became a habit for him and after that even he wants he cannot leave. So there should be some age restriction that a seller would not sell smoking element to a person who is below 18 and if he will do so then there should be a fine.

Another thing is that friends there are no hard rules for them who smoke in public place. If someone caught smoking on a bus or train he got free with only 100 or 500 rs. But there should be a rule of prison for that person of 1 day, 2 days or even 1 week also.

First, smoking should be banned completely in public places according to the constitutional right to live section with a wide range of taxes. Then smoking should be completely banned in India at a gradual stage. Prices of tobacco should be raised and non smokers should be given privileges in the country to promote anti tobacco campaign and promote people to leave smoking.

Smoking is really injurious to health. I agree but somehow at some point, I might not agree with the decision of banning cigarettes completely.

The ban on cigarettes may lead to black marketing of the product as there are millions of smokers throughout the world and the habit of smoking cannot be changed rapidly.

The economy will also be hampered as the government taxes will diminish due to the downfall of the cigarette companies.

Thus to conclude, rather than taking a decision to ban cigarettes, it is better to innovate some new technique for smoking without having the side effects.

It is right of the consumer to choose whether to buy it or not. We cannot force them to quit smoking because we do not like it.

So yes smoking should be banned completely but slowly not instantly because so many are addicted to smoke. So if we instantly banned smoking they use another thing to fulfill their needs. And the most important thing banned completely means banned in all ways that no any single piece of cigarette should be sold in an illegal way.

According to me, smoking should not be completely banned in India. Any instant decision leads to an imbalance in the society. Tobacco industry generates a large no. Of employment. As well as it is a great source of revenue for the government. This generated revenue is then used for the building of infrastructure, providing healthcare facilities for free of cost and many more things. Banning of this industry completely will result in loss of employment which will then impact the lives of many people. For eg: we can see the result of banning alcohol in Bihar. The government faced a huge loss in its fiscal and so no improvement in infrastructure can be seen in the past years. So instead of banning it completely, the government should take other measures to spread awareness among the people. It can set an age bar for smoking as well as set the limit for no of cigarette packets a person can buy monthly. The government Should 1st think about the various ways of generating employment and then eventually ban these tobacco industries.

There are thousands of avenues to generate income and employment for people other than cigarette production. And then nothing is more valuable than life. Yes, banning it also won't be easy as people who are addicted to smoking would find it hard to leave the addiction behind.

Hello everyone,

As most of my friends share their views on this topic and I appreciate them for their fantastic thought. As we all know that smoking leads to death so from my point of view, increase in rate of cigarette, tobacco etc is not a proper way. It is a cause of very harmful effect since, smoking makes people addict and if an addict person can't buy his needful things then he can do anything for getting those things.

Our country is the only country where people of so many religions lives and they all have their different will powers. If smokers decided by their will power that smoking is bad or injurious for them then they can stopped it completely.

So I requested to all the people of my country to give a right direction to such type of people who smoke or eating tobacco. I know it's very difficult but we have to do this social work for saving our nation.

Good morning friends,

First of all, I would like to thanks to all my friends for their wonderful experience. I completely agree with this topic that smoking should be banned completely. But not very instant. It should be banned but in a very slow process because it will lead to addiction of other products that are more harmful than cigrattes. In India all of us know that instantly ban leads to strikes also. Smoking cause lungs and throat cancer and also it makes tar in lungs which leads to death also.

It is a duty of public also to quit this because they don't think while smoking that what affects their family after his death. It not only affects the smokers but also affects the people who are nearby.

So govt should aware the public about the bad effects of smoking and should increase the price of cigrattes, tobacco and all.

Thank you.

Good morning friends, I am here to discuss about very prominent issue which is alcohol, Tobacco and cigarettes should be banned in India.

According to my thinking smoking should be banned because it is very injurious to health it is also hunts our heart lunges and throat. If you smoke it will cause pollution if possible please don't smoke in public places. So smoking should be banned completely but not suddenly slowly do this process because if any case government will ban the smoking suddenly. There are some chances of addiction the drugs. Drugs is more harmful than the alcohol, tobacco and cigarettes. So finally I would like to say that it should ban completely but not suddenly.

Thank you friends.

Banning smoking instantly will cause a great hush in the society. But its ban is very much needed. As it not only affects the person smoking but also the near ones due to passive smoking. Passive smoking is very dangerous for the ones who live near chain smokers. In today's world it's important to create awareness. We should first create awareness among the people then the hush created can be avoided. Proper measures should be taken for this.

Banned of smoking makes people mad instead of banning tobacco products try to mix them with nicotine like things these make addictors to come out of the habit of smoking.

If we banned it completely the smuggling of tobacco products is going to start illegally which makes loss to govt and loss to the common man by purchasing them with at a higher cost.

Smoking should not be banned. If you choose to go into a private establishment that allows smoking, then you do so knowing that it is allowed. It needs to be up to the business owners at their sole discretion. An example: where I live, there are 2 bars across the street from each other. Both of their food is ok. But the bar that allows smoking does 40%more in sales each month. Why is that? People don't like to go to a business that they plan to be at for a while only to have to go outside to smoke. So why should every business be forced to take a 40% loss in sales just to appease a group that everyone is tired of hearing anyway?

I think smoking should be banned because if we just give awareness about the effects of smoking the people who are addicted to it will not be concerned about the awareness but instead they will try to ignore it. And if we ban smoking it will at least help the beginners get rid of from it. But on the other hand, if we ban smoking totally why the people who are so much addicted to it may try to come crime or do drug deals which will lead to problems in our country and will ruin their life.

Smoking should be banned in India or anywhere in globe. Smoking as cigarettes contain 200 chemicals which harms our body and passive smoking leads to various respiratory disease to others. Banning of smoking is not possible because it will lead to another options of drugs of many of people which can lead to another problem. Govt on its parts had banned smoking in public places and also imposing more tax on tobacco and cigarettes to discourage the people for smoking.

Hello friends,

In my view, there should a ban on smoking as it is harmful not only to the person consuming it but also to passive smokers (indirect smokers). The main reason behind not putting a ban is that the government gets revenue from the sale of cigarettes. Irrespective of showing in advertisements the long lasting effect of smoking, people still use it as a source of refreshment. But I think smoking cannot be completely banned as the real effort should come from public by quitting it. The government has made efforts to increase the rate of tax on tobacco, cigarettes to discourage the usage. Complete ban is not possible as levying restrictions may result in people resorting to drugs, which is again a headache for government as even students are addicts.

So in conclusion, the real effort should be from the part of public to get rigid of this cancer causing smoke.

Thank you.

Hello friends,

I think smoking should not band at all. The government does not have any personal rights. So how ever wants to quit it they can and coming up in passive and active smoking. See overall UAE such as malls and public places we have special rooms or cabins only over there we UAE citizens are allowed to smoking as so the other people who don't smoke will not get any disease due to the smoking person.

Hello friends,

I think smoking should not be banned completely because it is the major part of the revenue of our country. But besides from this smoking is very hazardous to our health. The government should have to make rules against the use of cigarette, but it should not be banned suddenly because it is the pleasure for smokers. If govt banned this then there may be possibility that people can go attracted towards the drugs like cocaine and heroin. It is more harmful than the cigarette.

The government should have to create awareness among the people and in movies, the use of cigarette should be prohibited because the teenagers get affected by this.

Anyone who claims to get pleasure or claims that smoking is enjoyable I believe are afraid to face a future without them. This is what an addiction does it creates a dependence which we feel will make life terrible once removed and creates a false security. We all seen or experienced the anguish expressed and how hard it was to wean the bottle and security blanket away. We were born to breathe fresh air and eat and drink to survive, we were not born to inhale toxins by choice and if we had the choice, no peer pressures or stimulants or ads to entice just plain choice all over again we would not voluntarily walk into the world of coughs and cancers and COPD and throwing away looks and money to enslave ourselves to a slow death, giving up is hard but once over the giving up lets be honest there is no going back unless not fully recovered from the addiction. I was a former smoker and would never go back and would never want to go through quitting again, once quit stays quit only person or fault for going back is you.

It absolutely infuriates me that myself and others, including pregnant women and innocent children, have to suffer the ill effects of second-hand smoke when out in public. I work in a very congested city centre, it is very rare for me to make it to and from work without having to breathe in someone's cigarette smoke. I find my daily commute turns into a game of dodge the smoker. Sometimes I find myself on a narrow pedestrian walkway with 2 or 3 smokers in front of me, how do I get around that?

I take great pride in my health. I might as well be a smoker myself. They should ban smoking altogether. Allowed only in the home, or maybe a large green house can be constructed in every city where 100s of smokers can all go together and speed up their inevitable demise. I think health organizations need to reach out to smokers more to help them quit for good.

Maybe smokers are just part of a mass depopulation plan. After all, they're slowly killing everyone around them, in public and in their own homes. Maybe it will always be this way. I believe people that smoke have broken souls, they need therapy, forget to stop smoking. Anyway, what a waste of my time writing all of this, nothing will change anyway. BUT ONE CAN DREAM OF A BETTER WORLD.

As we all know smoking is a gradual death, means it kills not only the smokers but the people who live around them,

Actually why does some youths get addict to such bad things, main reason beyond this can be parents who have been addicted in cigarette and smokes in front of their children, it will affect children blood in smokes and then at the age of adult they are willing to smoke because their blood already has affected by smokers.

Smoking can be band if public help government and many ways are here how to band cigarette.

1. Impose higher tax on companies, shops. (retailer and whole seller).
2. Restrictions.
3. Awareness of bad effects.
4. Providing job opportunity for addicted people.
5. Helping them to how to gets out of this hell (advice them).

According to me, it should not be banned all of a sudden. Because smokers usually get pleasure from that. So if we ban it all of a sudden there is a chance of getting into the drug consumption by them and many poor people will lose their employment. So it should be a slow process. First, create awareness among the people and then go with ban on some companies which effects very badly and then give a notice that the govt is going to ban it very soon. In that way, we can eradicate smoking.

Yes, smoking to be banned completely in India. Smoking not only causes serious health issues to the smoker and the people around them but also, effects financially very much. Sale of cigarettes to be banned completely. In NCR we are already under heavy air pollution, as doctor recommendation peoples residing in NCR intakes in so much polluted that it is equivalent to consumption of 10-15 cigarettes daily. Although, smoking not only affecting our health but also our culture too. Many Students under the age of 18 are also active smokers, they attracted towards this habit from because of movies, they thought smoking as status symbol, while they feel adulthood with them. Smoking/Cigarettes to be completely ban although this will effect the chain smoker but it should be banned in phase manner. Firstly, the production to be restricted. Shop selling cigrettes to be registered so that its easy availability to be restricted. Because of easy availability of cigarettes in common places smoking has been increasing a lot and causing serious health issues to Indians.

Should Smoking be Banned Completely?

Yes, I agree with the statement, we should have to ban the smoking in India. As we know that it does not only effect the smoker health it also effecting the surrounding persons. If one active smoker is a friend of someone then there are a lot of chances to change that friend as a passive smoker and slowly to active smoker also. Smoking is very dangerous to health and leads to reduce the person life period. If pregnant women is an active smoker, its results in her baby body growth even before he/she come to this world. Government should have to make awareness seminars and advertisements to ban this smoking completely.

If we ask smokers why they are addict to smoking? They mostly reply that They are tired and by smoking, they are becoming free from it. Whenever they are in a state of unwillingness they will go for smoking and take some relaxation from it and they try to divert from that situation.

As of my experience, I asked so many people why they are smoking and even I asked educated person also they replied the same thing. And I had given an advise to them that try to stop smoking it will results you and your family in brighter. Some of them are followed and some not but I will continue the same thing whenever I find smoker.

Yes, Smoking should be completely banned. It is not only effecting the one who is smoking but also the once in the surrounding of that smoke. For eg. , If one person is smoking at raily crossing, traffic signal or at any other public places, smoking will definitely effect the smoker but along with him the others around him will be effected same as him. So, the one's who are smoking for their pleasure, it is becoming dangerous for others along with them. Smoking effects the health and thus effects the development, power and youth of the country.

Smoking should be strictly banned as it not only affects the individual's life but also the development of the country. We all know that how injurious is smoking for health. And more than an active smoker it harms to the passive smoker. Just think what happens when a pregnant woman becomes the victim of passive smoking. The infant with her becomes highly vulnerable to diseases even before coming in this world.

Thus when citizens of the country will not be healthy, how can a country be healthy?More than 50% of the population in our country is addicted to smoking. Strong awareness of side effects of smoking is required. Also, government of the country should take the major step to ban smoking completely for bright future of our country.
