Smoking is a harmful habit. I hate even smell when someone is smoking nearby. Smoking bans especially in restaurants can be really effective, a Massachusetts study suggests. Living in towns with strict bans teens less likely become bad smokers than youths in places with weak bans or without them at all. Moreover, age also plays the role. Bans against smoking are more effective for younger teens. Good news is that 23 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico require restaurants, bars and many other public places, to be smoke free. The more measures will be taken, the healthier and more prosperous our society will be.
