Please Take Your Butt Outside

“A smoking section in a bar or a restaurant is like having a peeing section in a public swimming pool, the pee just like the smoke will spread, and there is no way of escaping it,” said an anonymous author. Smoking affects many people’s lives each and everyday. For example, I can not even count the times that I have been in a restaurant in a “non-smoking section” and still not been able to enjoy my meal because of the smokers on the other side of the restaurant. Smoking in public places has become a controversial topic over the past several years.

The law banning smoking only outlaws public indoor smoking, meaning that no one will be arrested for smoking on the street or in their homes.
Smoking in public places such as bars, clubs and even some restaurants encourage others to smoke. Tobacco use usually begins in early adolescence by either experimentation in public places, or solely by peer pressure. In fact, very few smokers are known to take up smoking on their own; they are almost always influenced by others. For example, a non-smoking college student who goes to a bar with friends who smoke is more likely to smoke because of the social smoking atmosphere. Besides taking up the habit of smoking in public places; one smoker causes many other smokers to...
