Is an individual choice, which does not affect others, including your loved ones?

That was the question posed to several people in a video about cigarette . A group of smokers are asked about how they feel about the question.

“I’m not affecting people around me,” said one interviewee. “I don’t ask them to smoke, and when I smoke I try to stay away from them.”

“As long as I do not smoke in front of my son,” said another, “I feel that I am still a good father.”

The interviewees are then shown clips recorded earlier of their family members and their views on how smoking by the interviewees has affected them.

One of them, a woman, said she will not marry her boyfriend if he does not quit smoking.

Hear what the rest of them say in the video below.┬áThe short clip is part of GlaxoSmithKline’s (GSK) advertisement for its Nicotinell product.

In March, the government announced that the smoking age in Singapore will be raised from 18 to 21. Proposals will be tabled before Parliament within a year, it said. The new rule is part of the government’s effort to stamp out smoking in Singapore where the estimated smoking rate is about 13 per cent.

The government has also designated more public areas as no-smoking zones in the last few years.

Wah that moment when the dad was holding back his tears I cannot ?? Is SMOKING really an individual choice? #sp
