The goal of this visual argument is to inform people who smoke cigarettes that they should just hold a gun to their heads. The American people should be against nonsmoking because of the feelings you get when smoking, the chemicals that are involved, and how the cigarette will kill like a loaded gun.
Smoking tobacco is probably one of the worst habits humankind has developed. Originating as a tradition of the Native Americans, practiced mostly on special occasions, smoking has gradually become a kind of mass addiction. Due to the efforts of tobacco companies seeking to increase their sales, people started smoking more and more often; the evolution of a more traditional pipe to a cigarette took some time, but eventually tobacco became more affordable and easier to use (you now simply need to light it up, instead of having to always carry a tobacco pouch, stuff a pipe, puff it, and so on). As a result, deaths and health issues connected to tobacco consumption became a worldwide
I don’t show the smoke for market doors because however you enter site you will not be seen by doors (Unless you enter from van area, which the smoke could allow you to pick them off) You can push multiple angles watching doors not directly allowing you to catch anyone pushing out. I would suggest throwing a Molotov down there though anyway.
A cigarette does not only shorten your life by puff, but also the life of your child. The use of tobacco "remains the leading preventable cause of death in the United States” causing more than 440,000 deaths each year and resulting in an annual cost of more than $75 billion in medical expenses, says David Marks in his novel, Overcoming Your Smoking Habits. Nonetheless, what is not discussed is secondhand smoke is the third leading cause of death in the United States, also known as chronic lower respiratory disease. Secondhand smoke can affect a child mentally and physically, from diseases to learning disabilities, and post-traumatic stress. Children from birth to seven years of age are especially vulnerable to secondhand smoke because their lungs are not fully developed. (Marks 3)
I stumbled out of a building, coughing and wheezing, smoke filled my eyes and lungs. I pulled my tie frantically, my head beating as I ran out the entryway. I was having my supper when a refined man at the table decided to light a cigarette. The smoke went directly to my face and lungs, suddenly, I could not inhale, my chest hurt and I froze.
Drifting tobacco smoke can trigger asthma attacks, bronchial infections, and other serious health problems in nonsmokers.

The federal government should pass a nationwide smoking ban from all indoor facilities. There are many controversial statements out there, but indoor smoking should not be one of them.

In many cases, there are smokers who decide to stop smoking and change their lives for the better. An example is David Sturges, who is an attorney and lung cancer survivor. In 2002 David had been diagnosed with a small, malignant tumor in the lower lobe of his right lung-lung cancer. David was fortunate enough to undergo surgery and through his hard journey of recovery survived. Throughout his journey, David recognized that lung cancer is a branch of cancer research and is now traveling the world informing schools, organizations about the suffering f of lung cancer. He travels to schools, conferences, and workshops talking about how smoking challenged his life and raises funds for development in lung cancer research. This is just how one life changing surgery can help one man influence many. (Lung Cancer Foundation of America, 2016)
"Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world. I know because I have done it thousands of times," said Samuel Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain. Mark Twain spoke these words nearly 150 years ago. Unfortunately for Mark Twain, there weren't very many options available back then when it came to quitting tobacco. This quote, humorous in some sense, unfortunately, describes the lives of many smokers today. Luckily for smokers today, there are many options available to help smokers quit smoking with the most popular option becoming the use of vaporizers. Vaporizers and e-cigarettes are devices containing a nicotine-based liquid that is vaporized and inhaled. They are used to simulate the experience of smoking tobacco. Vaporizers and e-cigarettes are a better alternative to smoking tobacco because vaping is healthier than smoking tobacco, cleaner for the environment, and helps people quit using tobacco despite many people who argue that vaping is a public health concern, doesn't end nicotine addiction, and is a danger to minors because more kids and teenagers are becoming addicted to nicotine via vapor products due to vapor companies targeting them.

Electronic cigarettes and vapes have taken a new control over society. As time goes on, these newly found devices become more and more popular because of the thought that they are healthier than actual smoking. The CDC created a survey showing that e-cigarettes among U.S high school students have increased from 4.5% in 2013 to 13% in 2014. These gadgets were designed to replace the damages of actual smoking. The only problem is over time, scientists and doctors are progressively finding health risks and diseases caused by these gadgets. Nearly 98% of teens know about vaping and over half (68%) agree that it is much healthier than smoking regular cigarettes (CNN). So, the question still remains: are e-cigs and vapes as healthy as everyone makes them out to be?
