is the deadliest object in the history of human civilization. It kills about 6
million people every year. Cigarette smoking is known to kill about half of the
smokers, reducing their life spans by about 14 years on the average and killing
6 million people worldwide every year. Smoking Cigarettes could make a billion
people perish in our century. Cigarettes contain about 7000 ingredients
including nicotine which is very addictive and almost 70 of those ingredients
reason to ban production and sale cigarettes is that it has no medical value.
Research and science say it use is the major cause of cancer and other problems
such as heart disease , diabetes, emphysema, birth defects among women who
smoked during pregnancy, chronic bronchitis and others. Some people even spent
their entire life without any of these, but a bad cough. Cigarette smoking can cause many serious health problems
such as respiratory difficulties. Smoking does great harm to the lungs and
heart, smokers can get chronic coughing and asthma. Moreover, cigarettes have
carcinogens that can cause an extremely serious disease like a lung cancer,
mouth cancer and throat cancer. Furthermore, smoking may be the reason to

outbreaks in homes.
Cigarette smoking is quite unhealthy. Cigarette is very addictive.
Its main chemical is nicotine. It acts as a stimulant in small doses, but in
larger amounts, it blocks the action of autonomic nerve and skeletal muscle
cells. It kills half its long-term users.
It is so addictive that seasoned smokers cannot go without it even for
few hours and withdrawal symptoms are quite intense. Repercussion for its use,
possession, production and sale should result in dire penalties like extreme
fines, jail time and criminal proceedings.
Cigarette smokers often begin smoking in their adolescent years
ruining their entire life. In their teenage, they would be just too immature to
consider their future and its negative consequences. If the production and sale
of cigarettes were to be made illegal, fewer teens would be seeking cigarettes,
and less people would begin smoking this addictive, unhealthy substance in the
first place. This will be a right message that cigarettes is something we do not
need and this notion pertains especially to adolescents, who aren’t ready to
think about their long-term health, their futures as grandparents, fathers and
important reason for abolition is that smokers themselves dislike the fact they
smoke and wish they could quit. Smoking
is not a recreational drug and abolishing cigarettes would therefore enlarge

significant cause of harm to the natural environment. Cigarette manufacturing
consumes scarce resources in growing, curing, rolling, flavouring, packaging,
transport, advertising and legal defense. It also causes harms from massive
pesticide use and deforestation. It is also a defective product, a financial
burden on cash strapped societies, an important source of political and
scientific corruption and a cause global warming.
Considering all of above
reasons, smoking cigarette kills an unacceptable number of people every year
and its production and sale should be made illegal. It will save a lot of
premature deaths and potential life-long health hazards.
