1. Overwhelming Health Risks: Cigarette smoking inflicts severe health implications, including a higher chance of lung cancer, heart disease and stroke, which not only endangers smokers but burdens the healthcare system significantly. 2. Second-Hand Smoke: The harmful effects of second-hand smoke are well-documented, affecting bystanders including children and pregnant women who have no choice in their exposure. 3. Addiction: Nicotine present in cigarettes is highly addictive, making it difficult for smokers to quit, essentially constituting a never-ending cycle of harm. 4. Cost to Society: Smoking incurs enormous societal cost, through healthcare expenditure for treating smoking-related diseases and loss of productivity due to smoking breaks and illnesses. 5. Environmental Impact: Cigarette butt litter is a major environmental concern, contributing to pollution and causing harm to wildlife. 6. Premature Deaths: Each year, smoking leads to millions of premature deaths worldwide. It's a leading preventable cause of death, indicating that these losses can be avoided. 7. Reducing Quality of Life: In addition to severe health consequences, smoking can reduce the quality of life, leading to physical limitations, decreased mental health, and social stigma. 8. Burden on Healthcare: The extensive medical care required for smokers imposes a substantial financial burden on our healthcare system leading to inequity of care for non-smokers. 9. Industry Manipulation: The tobacco industry is often accused of deceptive marketing practices, preying on the vulnerable, including the young, and contributing to practices of drug and alcohol abuse. 10. Prevention is Better than Cure: As with drug and alcohol abuse, banning cigarette smoking is a preventive measure. It is easier and more cost-effective to prevent the initiation and continuation of smoking than trying to cure the diseases and damage caused by it.
