    Thanks for your answer.

    But I don't understand one thing. Although you smoke, you would still like to see smoking banned.
    Why is this? Do you regret deciding to smoke, for example?

    Please explain your choice: Because from a purely selfish point of view, I think it's disgusting and has killed too many members of my family. I also work in a hospital and see how ill it makes so many people, and how addicted people are- seeing them struggle down from the wards attached to drips and all sorts just to have a ciggie. I know it never will be, free choice and tax revenue and all that jazz, but I still think a phased ban should be in place (no, I don't know how this could be implemented) and better education to prevent people taking it up (though that probably wouldn't help because people know how bad it is for you and they still decide it's a good idea).

    6. Do you think smoking should be banned?

    Please explain your choice: I think smoking in public places should be banned. There is no reason why non-smokers should be exposed to smoke they don't want to be - the health implications alone are unfair on someone. For example, if I want to go outside at a club I'd have to go to the smoking area and that's not nice.

    5. Are you aware of the fact that passive smoking kills millions of people per year?
    a) Yes
    b) No because that's BS.

    6. Do you think smoking should be banned?
    a) Yes
    b) No
    Please explain your choice:

    Please answer as I need some dataaa!
    The most commonly cited study on the deaths induced through passive smoking is the Worldwide burden of disease from exposure to second-hand smoke by Öberg et al, 2010 which puts the death toll at 600000, with the majority taking place in low-income African countries. Furthermore passive smoking isn't the direct cause of death but rather a catalyst for disease or previously existing conditions. Just sayin.

    Although I can fully appreciate the adverse effects of smoking, way too many people are claiming to be aware of a completely fictitious statement.

    Please explain your choice:
    I answered based on health impact, compared to other drugs which are banned. But I didn't consider money from tax etc, or the position that more other drugs should be allowed (ie. free choice arguments).

    Please explain your choice: even ignoring the obvious liberty concerns which seems to be considered a weak argument for some reason, only an imbecile could look at the current model of drug prohibition and think "yeah, let's do this to cigarettes aswell"
    Yes that means I'm calling most people who replied imbeciles.

    It causes many deaths each year.
    The habit is vile, everyone thinks its so cool etc. But how is it cool to puff on something that is detroying your body? Just take a razor blade, it's the same thing.
    And the age nowadays that children start smoking is appauling. So many young lives dependant on what some call 'cancer sticks'
    And they are so easy to get hold of!

    If cigarettes were discovered today, they would have been banned.
    There is not one positive attribute i can give to smoking

    I think you'll find that people have been smoking from a young age for a very long time now. I knew a fair few people in their 60s and 70s back when I worked at a Working Men's Club who started around 10 years old. Granted, there are tighter controls now, but the point is still valid.

    Information on smoking
    1. Do you smoke?
    a) Yes


    2. If yes, why do you smoke?
    c) Other: please specify
    Now I smoke because I am addicted to smoking. I have cigarettes at specific times, e.g. before and after something stressful so I think there is also something about the ritual or routine of it. And potentially it seems to be stress relieving although I know it isn't really.

    3. Which drug do you believe is the least harmful?
    c) Cannabis
    If I have to pick one, it's cannabis but it's really hard to answer this question without more information. What kind of harm are you talking about? Physical, social, harmful to societies, greater level of harm to individuals or greater amount of harm to multiple people etc.

    4. Are you aware of the negative health impacts of smoking, such as lung cancer and asthma?
    a) Yes


    5. Are you aware of the fact that passive smoking kills millions of people per year?
    a) Yes


    6. Do you think smoking should be banned?
    b) No
    Please explain your choice: Again, banned in what sense? If you mean made illegal then no as it should remain a matter of personal choice (over the age of 18 I think). I think banning smoking in public places, restaurants, pubs etc. has been a good move though. Banning smoking advertising is also good.

    1) a - No
    2) N/A
    3) c - Cannabis
    4) a - Yes
    5) a - Yes
    6) b - No
    As much as I don't agree with smoking, it should be free choice. Banning it will not stop people smoking - look at illegal drugs - especially when it has been part of our culture for so long. More needs to be done to ensure people fully understand the dangers and can make informed choices.
