Addiction to any thing is not beneficial. The society can advance in all aspects only if the citizens are independent and completely self actualized. I agree that Smoking must be made illegal because that habit makes the person dependent on it and the person consumes most of his valuable time smoking! After the gap of some hours, the person starts being anxious and he feels that he cannot concentrate on anything without smoking. Smoking gives him pleasure and makes him feel relaxed for the time being. On the other hand, it pollutes the surrounding area. Not only him but the other people around who inhale that smoke get affected. Gradually, all these people may develop chronic illnesses. These illnesses are incurable at some stage. Our life is indeed very valuable. Government should gravely think about the benefits of allowing the manufacturers or the smokers do their work freely. It should think about the influence of these people on our next generation. No doubt, smoking is prohibited in some public areas and organizations. To add, it is only allowed to the people who are above 18 years old. On the other hand, the adult people are given the authority to play with their own lives. It would be really insane to allow the addicted people to make wrong decisions for their lives. The journey of thousand miles starts from first step. It is the acute need of the hour to save the society from such human created devastation by enacting some strict rule against the production of tobacco. Government should definitely ban smoking and save the valuable lives of millions of people.
