After reading the article about banning smoking in public areas, I have to say I agree with the writer. Smoking is an unhealthy for your body and hazardous habit that can cause you to lose limbs, have cancer, and even die. I think that there should be designated areas for people to smoke and if someone is found not smoking there they get fined. I have asthma and when I am around smoke it makes me cough and weez tremendously bad and I cause me harm for several days. So if I see someone smoking around a large crowd of people I go up to them and confront them about it.
