What could society do to eliminate smoking?




The very first thing I observed since I got to Italy was the number of smokers. Everywhere I go,  people are smoking; teens, adults, elders, male or/and female. It was shocking to see that many people smoke. Italians are known for their Mediterranean diet and healthy living. Also, Italians care very much about their physical appearance so they tuned to eat in small portions, exercise (walking, bicycling and running) and live healthy. However, it is contradictory to me that a society who cares that much about their beauty, physical appearances and well being still smoke as much while smoking is known to damage skin cells and other organs in the body such as the lung. The younger generation might be using this tactic to stay slim and slender but the numbers of Lung Cancer cases are increasing in Italy everyday.

Besides banning smoking from public setting/ gathering places (restaurants, schools, hospitals…) what else could the society do to ?
