I smoked for 5 years and I can tell you with certainty, if I still smoked - those ads would do NOTHING to change my mind.
Those ads are about as pourposeful as all those "quit smoking aids" out there - they all exist for the same reason: So the smoker has something to blame other than him/herself when they fail to quit.
If you wanna smoke, smoke - it's a free country . That's my opinion. I quit about 5 yrs ago.
Not trying to take away anyone's freedom. I just love the fact that they have an "in your face" approach instead of simply saying "it's ok" by virtue of saying nothing at all. The whole "Truth" movement has just as much freedom as big brand tobacco.
What gets me is all the prime time commercials for the Trojan vibrator lol
