In spite of all of the known dangers of smoking,people all over the world continue to indulge in this terrible habit.And in some countries,people are no longer allowed to smoke in many public places and office buildings.What are your ideas?Do you think this is a good rule or a bad one?

I think it's good that it's banned in a lot of public places. Secondhand smoke is terrible for those of us who have to breathe it in, so when I have to breathe other people's smoke in, it makes me quite angry. I know a lot of stores that banned smoking lost a little business, but I really think that it's worth it for a cleaner experience.

I agree with you.Breathing other people's smoke in is more detrimental to one's health than smoker himself or herself.I prefer to buy stuff in a cleaner place.

But in China like Shanghai,you can see people smoking everywhere.People can smoke in places that you have mentioned.I really think Chinese goverment must do something to deal with it.
