An argumentative essay is the type of essay in which you try to convince your readers to your ideas and values built on facts, strong logic, and relevant examples. You have to build your essay from start until the end in a way that the reader agrees with you when you reach a conclusion.
Choosing the right topic is the most critical part of your argumentative essay writing. If you fail to choose a good topic, you will not be able to create a good essay. A topic should be such, which has gap for counter arguments so that people can analyze on your essay and discuss it in academic references. The topic of your essay must be very interesting and should grab the reader’s attention so that they want to learn more about your essay.
Here are a few topics you should avoid in any circumstances while writing an argumentative essay.
Drug abuse is bad and people should avoid it
Smoking is not good for health
Hard work is the key to success
A topic about your pet or favorite hangout
A topic that is about your personal opinions and problems
Topics that instantly come to your mind about a certain subject
Why does the earth revolve around sun (note that the first letter of earth should be capital. It should be spelled as Earth).
Drinking is a bad habit ( this is a very subjective approach, some might say it is good or some might find it relieving, you cannot simply state something as bad because you think so. You have to show why it is bad. You may better say drinking has bad effects on health or behavior).
Study about dinosaurs shows they are extinct (This probably is the worst topic you could choose for an argumentative essay, everyone agrees on the fact that dinosaurs are extinct, what are you trying to prove in your topic. There can be no counter argument possibly for this topic).
