Default Banning cigarette ads

Hi everyone!
Could you please see if this composition correct or not?

Smoking is a deadly habit.Every year, many people die from their habit.Including cancer and heart diseases, passive smoking causes many of the same diseases as direct smoking.
However, cigarette ads are everywhere.They can be seen on TV, buildings and in newspapers and magazines. Kids and teens can see them.These ads show that people who smoke are successful and attractive.They don't mention the dangers of smoking though.As a result, young people are easily influenced by these ads.Nowadays, smoking is so common among young people. In my opinion, a total ban on smoking will reduce the number of smokers

This isn't a forum for correcting work - apart from anything else if someone got their work corrected here and then submitted it, it would be cheating. Look at what is in the text, and if you have a specific doubt about a word or phrase, post a question.

However, one clue. Look at my paragraph above (and this one). After any punctuation - commas, full stops, brackets, exclamation marks or whatever, there is always a space before the next word. If the text has to be written to a word limit, running the words together (eg: ..word.If...) would make the computer count them as one word - whereas really they should be counted as two (...word. If...). If a learner submitted work where this had been done but was still within the word limit (or if there was no word limit), it would still be marked down as having punctuation errors. If, on the other hand, separating the words took it over the stated word limit, it would fail for not having respected the task requirements.
