Hello everyone,

What's your view regarding the Quit Smoking Ads being shown everywhere...

Yesterday I had a nightmare after seeing it for a week in a row :(

Today channel 8 will also talk about it in the TV show after the 10pm News :cool:

So how's your view regarding to this Ad? :)

I say the ad is good. So this country will soon be a smoke-free zone.Peace to all the smokers out there. Kidding aside, smoking really is not good. with hospital and medicine bills so expensive...prevention is still better than cure.

I think Afghan gal digging her nose vigorously in an unglam moment would have a lot more commercial and entertainment value! :bsmilie:

Oh...this topic huh?

This kind of thing is nothing new in Europe and US. You need to learn to adapt to your environment and not ask the environment to adapt to you. :)

Try to get accustomed to blood and gore. When I was in England, they have this late night documentary called "Operation" which publicizes every kind of operation taped during surgery (I watched a lot.). You can also try watching the most extreme stuff on YouTube and Flurl. After that, you won't be scared of anything anymore.

There is no other way to do it. Either you adapt to it or you don't watch TV after 8pm. The government is doing this for our own good.

They should seriously consider commissioning Sion to do their new campaign. After that, confirm no more smokers...

Yeah, no smoker would be able to light up with the thought of those ominous goggles lingering at the back of their mind!

If it is anything similar to the advert shown here; if you look at her eyes there is no way she could look like that in real life.....

She has the eyes of a very healthy woman.

Just an observation and referring to what is shown here.

Most likely a different person and advert there. But something to look for. :)

My own thinking of seeing the ads.

It is true that it does send a shivering moment to a lot of people but in the end, what is the real true? The woman is a FAKE!!!

Using a FAKE ads to ask people to quit smoking, it is not a good idea. It is challenging people to pick up smoking, especially youngster, as they know that the ads is a fake.

Example a girl, scare of the ads when she is 14. When she is 18 and mixed with some smokers, they will tell her. "Come on, that ads is FAKE, you wouldn't become like that." Then the girl, thinking that what her friends said is true, pick up smoking in the end.

So, this ads, better stop else more and more people will start smoking instead of quitting as the only way to stop smoking, BAN IT! :bigeyes: :bsmilie:
