Fantastic way to show it! Smokers not only commit suicide, but they also put the people around them in danger. I don`t let an oppurtinity to harrass smokers slip away.

you spelt Brazil wrong. =P

Actually, Brasil is spelled right, depending on how you look at it: It`s spelled with an s in portuguese :)

I find this campaign really good. It shows you the consecuences of smoking more directly than just by some kind of text... Maybe this will make a few people stop with it.

Drink ginseng tonics, you`re still gonna die.
Try high colonics, you`re still gonna die.
You can have yourself frozen and suspended in time,
But when they do thaw you out, you`re still gonna die.
You can have safe sex, you`re still gonna die.
You can switch to Crest, you`re still gonna die.
You can get rid of stress, get a lot of rest,
Get an AIDS test, enroll in EST,
Move out west where it`s sunny and dry
And you`ll live to be a hundred
But you`re still gonna die.

You`re still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die.
Still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die.
So you`d better have some fun
`Fore you say bye-bye,
`Cause you`re still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die.

But you`re still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die.

You`re still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die.
Still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die.
You can even give aerobics one more try,
But when the music stops playin`, you`re still gonna die.
Put seat belts in your car, you`re still gonna die.
Cut nicotine tar, you`re still gonna die.
You can exercise that cellulite off your thigh.
Get slimmer and trimmer, but you`re still gonna die.
Stop gettin` a tan, you`re still gonna die.
You can search for UFO`s up in the sky
They might fly you to Mars where you`re still gonna die.

You`re still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die.
Still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die.
And all the Reeboks and Nikes and Adidas you buy
You can jog up to heaven and you`re still gonna die.

As the wise Shel Silverstein once putted it:

Becoming more aware of your body.
Responding to your body`s needs.
Everything you hear and read about diets,
Nutrition and sleeping position and detoxifying your system,
And buying machines that they advertise to help you exercise.
Herbs to revitalize you if you`re traumatized.
Soaps that will sanitize.
Sprays to deordorize.
Liquid to neutralize acids and pesticides.
Free weights to maximize your strength and muscle size.
Shots that will immunize.
Pills to re-energize you.

But remember that for all your pain and gain
Eventually the story ends the same...
You can quite smokin`, but you`re still gonna die.
Cut out cokin`, but you`re still gonna die.
Eliminate everything fatty or fried,
And you get real healthy, but you`re still gonna die.
Stop drinkin` booze, you`re still gonna die.
Stay away from cooze, you`re still gonna die.
You can cut out coffee and never get high,
But you`re

I`ve read that nicotine is more addictive then heroin.Because more people smoke then do heroin and other factors.
Non-smokers think smokers can just stop at will like it`s just a tasty cancer stick they`re stucking on and it`s easy.But it`s not,it`s a drug and with some help and support for stopping helps way better then horror images or any angry anti-smoking commercials.
besides,when someone`s in the need for a nicotine hit,maybe 1 out of 3 will even notice the images beforehand.will it stop them,no

What did the open-skull one say? I didn`t understand that one.


It says "Danger - The Ministery Of Health Alerts: There`s a higher risk of brain hemorrhage when using this product".

Actually, Ihartsqwerls, that`s an automated image - if it really did look at my recent searches, it should be filled with James McAvoy images... as it is, I had the same stupid hentai crap basura got.

As for the images - it won`t stop people from smoking. If someone has their mind set on doing something, they will.

Oh, like we all haven`t already seen foetuses in ashtrays...

The whole anti-smoking thing almost makes me want to take up smoking, just because it`s bound to piss a few people off.

This ad won`t be helping any smokers stop smoking.

Might help prevent some people from starting to smoke, but really, unless the individual smokers want to stop and put their entire willpower into stopping it, this ad won`t help.

@ BasuraBlanca It kinda ruins the `Shock Value` a bit doesn`t it. However a hentai-3-d mouse pad and a green tea kit-kat sound really appealing right now.

I smoke..I`ve become desensitised to anti smoking campaigns now. I wish I`d never started, stopped, started again etc. I keep meaning to quit for good but...acctually I have no excuse other than I turn into an evil S.O.B ifI dont get my nicotine fix.

I didn`t find the images TOO shocking, personally
(thanks to rotten.com, I can`t get more traumatized than I have already ~_~)

But super kudos to the mgs those ads effectively deliver.

Kenny, no left hand (or toes, for that matter) because of Amniotic Band Syndrome (ABS). I don`t really have enough space or time to describe it all here, but Google can. If you have more questions after Googling, feel free to ask me.

People do inhale large amounts of car fumes. Smoking is least of our problems.

Maybe the images will change, but these are not the ones current on the cigarette packs. I should know, I`m brazillian and I`m staring at my Marlboro pack as I type this.

A funny story - when this first started, with the pictures, my ma used to buy cigarettes and ask for the box with a pic of the "impotence guy". I myself would just place a playing card between the pic and the plastic wrap. Eventually I stopped doing that and I don`t even see the thing anymore. I think it scares of non-smokers more than smokers, since we`re so used to see them...

The brazillian governament is really being a bitch to smokers lately. They passed this law now and you can`t drating smoke anywhere anymore! Thank God most places don`t give a crap about the law and they`ll let you smoke. God bless Brasil!

That`s weird...
And yet, people still smoke.
You know, one must wonder, why the hell are the toxic chemicals in there in the first place? I mean, all the toxins aren`t just from tobacco. What, do they just decide to try to kill their consumers and potentially be sued for millions?
