Unhealthy environment, smoke screens and empty wallets are a few problems someone might have when he enters a pub. On the one hand, it?s required to have at least one non-smoking area in every pub, but on the other hand it?s usually a small part of it. It could be a big problem for non-smokers, because they are bigger in number than seats for them. A good hopefulness for non-smokers is that smoking in pubs has been already prohibited in some developed countries. Currently, there are many reasons to ban smoking in pubs and one example is that non-smokers shouldn?t risk their health unnecessarily.
Every human, who is going to visit a pub with his friends, wants to feel comfortable in a place where he is sitting. However, it isn?t only about atmosphere, which is made by music and people, but there should be fresh air as well. As is known, passive smoking sharply increases the risk of lung cancer. Therefore, a smoky environment is particularly hazardous for non-smokers. They shouldn?t be threatened in public places such as pubs. They should have conditions that aren?t dangerous for their health. Unfortunately, many smokers are unscrupulous and don?t care about their feelings and feelings of other people.
It would be good to show them that visiting the pub can do without this civilization illness. Smoking is no longer a habit of rich people, but now it?s a habit of many people, especially teenagers, who are trying to emulate their peers. These young people are the generation of the future and it?s a mistake that they are starting to smoke because of this reason. It?s a fact, that if you don?t have an opportunity to see something, you won?t think about it. Therefore,, if there is no smoking in pubs, people won?t think about it. Finally, an amount of smokers will decrease.
We should take care about our future generation, because they will be working for our pension and if they are seriously ill, they won?t be able to do that. Unfortunately for smokers, but fortunately for non-smokers, increasing prices of cigarettes in Slovakia is rapidly high. It?s a European Union action to curb smoking, but a result of this measure is not clear. There is still a high number of smokers. Prices aren?t a good way to protect non-smokers because smokers will always find money for their habit. So a question is if prohibition of smoking in pubs can decrease the number of smokers.
Maybe yes, maybe no, but it?s totally clear that non-smokers will be protected from breathing smoke and destroying their health. There are tough anti-smoking laws in a whole in east of Europe, but people have accustomed by that. We live in a modern world so we should be aware of dangers of smoking and pay attention to non-smokers too. There are still many people, who think that smoking in pubs shouldn?t be prohibited. They have an opinion that they should have a right to smoke at places where non-smokers are not forced to be. While this argument may be true, people should respect each other.
We are all humans and we should learn how to be tolerant. It can?t be very hard for smokers to stand up and go out of a pub and light a cigarette there. It?s about people?s mind, they should realize that they don?t endanger only their health, but also everyone who is around them. As is known, smoking is the biggest killer of mankind. Unfortunately, there are still many people, who don?t realize it. Finally, smokers are destroying their health by visiting smoky pubs. On the other hand it is sad that by their indiscretion they do it to non-smokers, who want to live healthier.
There will always be people, who have an opinion that smoking is a right which shouldn?t be prohibited. Therefore, it can be hard to ban smoking in pubs in the near future. It seems that a current government won?t be able to do anything in this problem. Fortunately, there is a good chance in the future, because as we know, countries in west of Europe have already adopted a law about smoking in pubs. There is a tendency, that something that is accepted in western countries will come to Slovakia a few years later. It could be in one or two years, maybe in six years, but I am sure that smoking in pubs will be prohibited.
