ENGL 111 IRW QUIZ 3B Read the essay and answer the questions that follow: Deadly Ware
(15 points in total) (12 Points)
“It’s better to be acceptable than unacceptable.” This statement is valid for
all human situations. So, would one rather be socially unacceptable or acceptable? Exercising and keeping fit draws people to one; whereas smoking pushes people way from one. Smoking kills more people than the combined mortality rates from road accidents, homicide and AIDS. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), smoking “harms nearly every organ of the body”, as well as creates diseases that make the smoker generally unhealthy. It is therefore a “no brainer” to avoid any activity to do with tobacco or cigarettes. Even as tobacco companies glamorize smoking cigarettes by associating it with sophistication and being “cool”, smoking should be avoided at all costs. It is a sleek way of peddling death to the unaware. Thus, unlike exercising; smoking is fatal, expensive, and socially degrading. 2
In the first place, smoking’s high fatality rate makes it very dangerous for
human consumption. Smokers die most because of the toxicity of cigarettes. 3
In the second place, the cost of packs of cigarettes is expensive, therefore
it’s economically unwise to smoke. 4
This powerful, unnatural smell, which is the outcome of smoking, makes people keep away from smokers. This is socially degrading because the odor coming from the smoker makes people keep their distance from him or her. 5
The disadvantages of smoking far outweigh the advantages; hence it’s in the
smokers’ best interest to quit. While some may see smoking as a social-bonding pursuit, it’s a very destructive way of life. If the fatality rate, cost of smoking and social degradation aren’t deterrents, I don’t know what would be.
