Other addicts have to deal with shame but nicotine addicts don't. Nicotine is just as addictive as heroin but it's accepted in society, and unlike heroin it's doesn't have any benefits. At least heroin has medical uses. Nicotine is a bane on our society and we should shame anyone who uses it!
It seems that society in their antismoke stance has taken a if you smoke your scum shaming attitude about it and i dont think that is a health reasponce to the issue I believe that nicotine addiction should be given as much care as other addictive substances more medical and phsyclogical care to the addicts

My opponent states that smokers are already shamed, but smoking is allowed in public! So obviously it's not shamed enough. He goes further to say it deserves more care than drugs like heroin, but he doesn't explain why ore support his claim! Nicotine addicts get a free pass when it comes to our society I say. They don't get half the shame they should, and are widely accepted for no good reason!
My opponet stance o this that shame is a good way of treating adiction disregarding the fact that by the time they started talking about the legality of nicotine use making substances illegal isnt a real feasible opption we as a society are working twards make other substances legal well because shame and judicial systems do not work when it comes to addiction we are finding that proper medical phsyclogical treatment is the only way to deal with these issues now yes i stated more earlier but that was in the context of more then is currently available pryor to that i stated as much

Heroin has medical uses that nicotine does not, and yet nicotine isn't shamed like heroin is. This point alone should win me the debate, but we have all dealt with this bane on our society in elevators, restaurants, and other places where nicotine is forced us without our consent. This is shameful, and unacceptable as I have proven.
Heroin and all opioid medication has been found to cause quite a bit a damage to the human body and is highly addictive the only true medical use it has is as a pain killer and in this day and age they have far superior pain killers that are nonaddictive so its use as a medicine is a mute point my is that the equal care for nicotine addicts as are given to addicts of other substances and all of those places my opponent is speaking of that you can smoke in is false not since the 80s have you been able to smoke in so also irrelevant he is a nonsmoker and i believe has always been that way so his knowledge of the subject is ihighly lacking and im pretty sure he has never been hooked on any substance so again highly lacking in know on the topic so in closing equal tretment for substance abuse
