Smokers cause harm not only to their health but also to the other non-smokers. People in the environment inhale the exhaled smoke of a real smoker.

This is known as passive smoking or involuntary smoking or second hand smoking. Even the passive smokers are exposed to all the health risks of an active(!) smoker.

Good thing is...smoking in public places is banned in few countries. Do we have the right to affect the other innocent non-smokers and children ? Let's all wish...the ban on smoking in public places should be implemented in all the countries.

Please remember...thousands stop smoking every day - by dying.

So kick the butt ! Quit smoking ! We have much better things to do in our life !
