OK. Well, there's a 50/50 chance you'll get to be the ruggedest individualist in the cancer ward.

Of course, the tobacco companies are laughing at you. You make them rich by handing over your hard-earned for a product which hooks you as hard as heroin and degrades your health and appearance - and when people point out that this isn't in your best interests, you fight them off. Philip Morris loves you.

12 years ago, I kicked the tobacco habit that held me as hard as heroin. If you don't have my kind of strength, I completely understand.

We have them pics on cig pacs in UK!
If I was forced to put warning pics on cig pacs I’d make them as graphic as possible
so one (2.0 billion people) that is ignorant to the damages of smoking will not look at the grim reality (WARNING) …. Very clever move by the cig companies once again…bravo

Bravo - you are exactly right! But the tobacco companies didn't do it. Anti-tobacco and the government are forcing tobacco companies to put the pictures on the package by law.

Oh and the picture with the black lung - that is an out and out lie. They took a pig lung and made it black with shoe polish. Smoker's lungs are pink, just like non-smokers and are routinely used for lung transplants.

TIRED OF CONTROL FREAKS

Update

Tobacco health labels unconstitutional: U.S. judge
By Jeremy Pelofsky
WASHINGTON | Wed Feb 29, 2012 3:41pm EST

(Reuters) - A U.S. judge sided with tobacco companies on Wednesday, ruling that regulations requiring large graphic health warnings on cigarette packaging and advertising violate free-speech rights under the U.S. Constitution.

Cigarette makers challenged the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's rule requiring companies to label tobacco products with images of rotting teeth, diseased lungs and other images intended to illustrate the dangers of smoking.

"The government has failed to carry both its burden of demonstrating a compelling interest and its burden of demonstrating that the rule is narrowly tailored to achieve a constitutionally permissible form of compelled commercial speech," U.S. District Judge Richard Leon said.
