今回は第3回目のIELTSWriting モデルエッセーのご紹介です。



Some people say that the best way to discourage smoking is to make smoking illegal in public places. Other people say that this is not enough and that other measures are needed. Discuss both these views, and give your opinion.

エッセー (Written by Saya)

The smoking population is numerous. Some people insist that prohibiting smoking in public areas is the best measure to reduce the number of smokers while others think that there should be several approaches needed to combat this matter. This essay will discuss two views and state why I think other measures are necessary.

On the one hand, removing smoking areas from public areas can reduce smoking opportunities. This measure will force smokers to stay away from cigarettes. In Japan, many public establishments have prohibited smoking indoors. Then, as a result, it is reported that many of them succeeded in reducing the number of cigarettes. This exemplifies that depriving smoking opportunities of smokers is the most essential measure to tackle the problem.

On the other hand, others argue that cigarette addiction is serious that several approaches are required to decrease the smoking population. Scientifically, cigarettes contain an addictive substancecalled nicotine. To stop smoking permanently, smokers have to take adequate medical treatments to make their bodies free from nicotine. In some countries, there are hospitals which are specialized in helping smoking patients. In these hospitals, not only do doctors teach how detrimental cigarettes are to the human body, but they also control patients’ nicotine levels. Addiction cannot just be tackled by smokers’ efforts. They need professionals to assist them.

In conclusion, this essay has discussed both opinions on whether banning public areas into non-smoking is enough to reduce the number of smokers or not. While some believe this measure is beneficial because it will deprive smoking opportunities of smokers, others think smoking is addictive and that professional support is essential. Personally, I agree with the perspective that medical treatment is needed to decrease the number of smokers because addiction is one of the symptoms.
