Smoking to Be Banned In a Number of Public Areas

SmokingIn a recent report, it has been revealed that the NSW Health Minister, Jillian Skinner, has put across new rules for limiting the smoking habits of people. It is actually sad to see people suffering for other’s habits.

According to the new rules smoking is going to be banned in a number of public places such as bus stops, swimming pools, public transport facilities and a host of other places. The restrictions are surely going to be a positive step towards cutting down the number of people smoking in the world. There is need for more and more people to understand how others have to pay for their ill habits and how they are getting affected by the smoking they do.

This shall help in keeping the large public spaces free of smoke in the time to come. It would also mean a reduced risk of attracting teenagers and kids towards smoking in the long run. The second hand smokers tend to share half of the harm of the puff, and there is need for cutting down these rates so that people can be saved from horrible diseases such as lung cancer and a number of breathing disorders.

“If someone wants to have a cigarette in public then I do not have a problem with that. But if it becomes legislation I do believe that it should be respected”, said Deputy Mayor, Bob Kirk.

There is need for taking these rules seriously as they shall help in safeguarding the health of a number of people in the time to come.

It remains to be seen whether or not these rules can go well in the long run and be of actual benefit to the common people.
