I am on day 7 of being smoke free and had been smoking for 17 years at about 1 pack a day. Quit cold turkey. No patches or gum, no meds either.
To the point:
These images should be plastered on every pack of cigarettes or any other form of tobacco. The OP has it right, smokers tend to ignore what they are
doing to themselves until serious health problems begin. People who chose to smoke will continue to do so either way, but there are many who really
do want to quit but need all the help and motivation they can get.
Even as i sit here typing, i am craving a cigarette although i am going to force myself not to do it.
Want a good tip to quit smoking?
Take the images in your OP and make it the desktop image for your computer.
