I'm happy to say that as of Saturday night, I will be 7 weeks clean. Zero nicotine, zero toxins. Feels great to have quit cold turkey! Good luck to
you. These shock ads are just what some people need to help them quit. I like the new commercials too where the people are talking with their voice
When I was in Mexico last year, their cigarette packs had all sorts of disturbing pictures orinted on them. One was a fetus lying in a pile of
cigarette butts and another of a kid crying at his dads hospital bedside. I was like wtf??

Congratulations to you! I would love to join your ranks!
Gotta say though, I get really pissy with the constant negative attention focused on smokers.
Photos such as those listed above are among the worst. What about photos of families turfed to the curb after defaulting on a payment or two to the
big banks , usually due to illness? Can we see some of them printed on the banks lovely glossy, home loan brochures?
That'd be a bloody helpful warning if the gov truly cared about its people.
If they were really serious, they'd give e-cigs/patches etc free of charge. Here in Australia, if I was a heroin addict I'd get free methodone , but
if you're a smoker, well they'll just ostracize & overcharge you for the right to do so.
I'd believe they had our best interests at heart, if they attached a free e-cig to every pack I bought.
That would help me quit far more than their crappy,scare tactic photos. I don't believe for a second the government truly wants us to quit. We are so
overtaxed on cigs here, they don't want to lose their money tree.
