Scientific researches show that smoking can lead to heart disease,
cancer and other problem. The World Health Organization says
diseases linked to smoking kill at least 2, 500, 000 persons each
Still, many people find it difficult to stop smoking. One reason
is that smoking usually becomes a habitual behavior, and habits,
whether good or bad are not easy to be given up. Another reason
is the effect of nicotine, the substance found in cigarettes works on
people somewhat as drugs do.
Measures have been taken to help people keep away from its
harm. In many cities, smoking is forbidden in public places. The
danger of smoking is warned of everywhere. And newspapers are
asked not to publish advertisements for cigarettes. World "No
Tobacco Day" is observed every year as the biggest campaign
against smoking.

arguments in the second paragaph:

being. Without work, man’s life would be empty.

human beings long for a sense of being accomplished.
people take pride in being part of an accomplished
work team.
2. Wite a composition entailed True Happiness and Hard
Work. Your composition should be based on the following
outline given in chinese.
1. 不同的人有不同的幸福观
2. 我的幸福观
3. 我持这一幸福观的原因
Some people think that health is essential to happiness. Ohters
believe wealth makes them happy. Still others of a strong intellectual turn
of mind look upon wisdom as the source of happiness.
In a way, they all have a point. However, health, wealth and wisdom
are rewards of your own efforts. For instance, you have to work very hard
in order to earn your share of money. Indeed, it is work that helps make
us healthy, wealthy and wise. True happiness, to my mind, comes first
and last from hard work.
We derive great satisfaction from our work also because work
constitutes a contribution to the modernization effort. We feel duty bound
to do our bit for socialist construction and take pride in the fact that our
joint efforts are bringbing properity to our motherland. And then again, we
are eager to become more knowledgeable about and efficient in our lines
of work. Work, more than anything else, provides us with the muchdesired opportunity to lean and improve ourselves.
