The government faces the dilemma on this smoking problem. There is a demand to ban smoke in every corner of this country, but then how we provide other job for those cigarette’s labor. One thing is sad to know is that most of the smokers are young people, the poor, and women. The other sad thing is that apparently those passive smokers have no rights to fight this smoking problem.

Some cities in Indonesia have banned smoking in their territory, but that doesn’t mean the number of the smokers decreased. Each and every day, new smoker is born, and there is no hard action from the government and the society on how to stop this bad habit. Hopefully the eyes of the government can be opened on how to stop the silent killer in our body without harming the cigarette’s workers.
