 Why smokers harm other people.

Passive smoking indoors is harmful to the health of all other room users.  Medical conditions caused by smoking have a traumatic effect on family and friends.  The care and therapy of diseases cannot be treated by those affected themselves, but takes up valuable time and resources of the health sector.

 Why smokers can't decide for themselves.

The extremely addictive nature of nicotine means that most people cannot quit.  The strong will and motivation it takes to quit smoking after heavy smoking is a skill few people have.
