  • I can definitely recommend a website that really helped me with my essay. I found out it was due the day before I had to submit it. Went into full-on panic mode. Worst experience of my senior year by far. It’s called Digitalessay.net. The quality of the writing is passable but the completion rate is super quick. You get to pick your own writer to do your stuff and that’s also a big bonus.

For and Against Essay

  1. 1. Focus on Writing For and Against Essay
  2. 2. A for and against essay presents the advantages and disadvantages of a certain subject
  3. 3. In a For and Against composition model There are normally four paragraphs Introduction Arguments for/against Arguments against/for Conclusion
  4. 4. Introductory Paragraph  Points of interest- why the subject is interesting  Where do you stand? – What’s your opinion?
  5. 5. Topic: Should smoking be prohibited in Public Places?  Introductory paragraph Whatever smokers may tell you, smoking is an anti- social habit. While the smokers themselves may enjoy their cigarettes, their enjoyment often causes much discomfort around them. The time has come to forbid smoking in all public places.
  6. 6. Paragraph 1 : arguments against  On the one hand, those who are against the prohibition of smoking- usually the smokers themselves-tend to claim this is a move against their personal liberty. They say that smokers form a large part of the population and that no one has the right to tell them where or when they can smoke. Moreover, they state that if their smoke annoys non-smokers , the non-smokers can always move to another (smoker-free) place
  7. 7. Paragraph 2: arguments for  On the other hand, those who believe that smoking should be prohibited in public places say that it is not always possible to move away from smokers. What happens if a smoker lights up at the table next to you in your favourite restaurant? The most important factor for non- smokers is probably not the inconvenience- it is the health hazard from passive smoking. A non- smoker who spends a lot of time in a smoke- filled atmosphere is seriously endangering his or her health
  8. 8. Paragraph 4: Conclusion. Refer back to the topic and restate views  In conclusion, it is obvious that health must come before personal pleasure. I strongly believe that governments should act to make smoking illegal in public places
