Smoking has taken over the world, people’s lives, and people’s opportunities. Throughout the past years, the statistics of people that smoke are rapidly increasing. Something that smokers don’t understand is that while they are enjoying a cigarette, they are bothering a number of other people. Trying to prevent this, there has been numerous laws made stating where you can and cannot smoke. For example, in New York State, they banned smoking in certain parks. Bryant Park made it official that there is absolutely no smoking in or near the grounds. “Make no mistake, the city is serious. Get caught smoking in a park, on beach, in pedestrian mall or a sports stadium and you’ll get a $50 ticket, but officials hope calling a cop won’t be necessary.” said by the owner of the park, Daniel Biederman. Smoking while you’re near anyone is extremely inconsiderate and rude, something that should be known by all smokers. It is one thing if you want to smoke but to sit there and make someone else inhale all those chemicals unwillingly isn’t fair. Smoking has a major effect on the workplace. Certain jobs you are allowed to smoke, but other you aren’t. Such as, places dealing with foods, child care education, ill people, and computers. Smoking may seem like something that wouldn’t affect what your future or your job is, but it does. Most businesses don’t want their employees smoking. It affects not only your own health but anyone who is regularly around you. Businesses don’t want that kind of environment. Throughout New York State there are indicators, such as signs that let you know if areas are okay to smoke in. The reasoning for these signs is because smoking isn’t going to be made illegal no matter how many people don’t like it. So making areas that you can smoke in will hopefully prevent people from smoking and bothering other people. As many might know, smoking is something people don’t usually want to become addicted to, 65% of smokers try to quit, but can’t succeed. "Each day, 1,000 young people under the age of 18 become new, regular, daily smokers, and almost 90 percent of all smokers began at or before their 18th birthday," Obama said today. "I know. I was one of these teenagers. And so I know how difficult it can be to break this habit when it's been with you for a long time." Nonsmoking areas were made to prevent unhappy citizens. “There’s nothing like walking with my 2 year old son in Central Park, and smelling cigarette smoke everywhere, it’s just disgusting.” says Kathy Manning of New York City. Nonsmoking areas are made to prevent and
