SMOKING SHOULD BE BANNED IN PUBLIC PLACES
The numbers of people who smoke have increased over the years. Although smoking is a really bad habit, people still choose to smoke.

For example, you are a non-smoking people and have you been to the restaurant for a romantic dinner but even if you can’t see your partner or even breathe because of cigarette smoke.
