Social Engineering Approaches to Reduce Smoking
I found interesting that a social engineering approach that society has used to reduce smoking in America is prohibit smoking in indoor places such as bars, restaurants and indoor workplaces.
I think that this is a great way to force society to stop smoking at least in those places. People spend much of their time working and going out; meaning that if people cannot smoke on those places it is highly expected that they might be able to stop smoking.
It is interesting how some business excecutives say that revenues have gone up because since the ban of smoking in their places. Also, another said that people wants to become healthier so regarding if the ban was working or not people still are trying to quit smoking in order to become healthier.
