Every smoker is aware of the damage their habit causes, but to finally quit, that extra push is usually needed. So here we bring you some of the most innovative anti-smoking ads ever created.


Show Full Text

From showing graphic images of the damage caused by smoking to appealing to the smokers' children - the creatives working in the ad industry have tried it all. But do these ads actually help people quit smoking? Even though the answer isn't a simple yes or no, multiple studies done in the last decade have shown that anti-smoking campaigns are still the most cost-effective way to at least deter new smokers from joining the club, especially when the people in question are the youth.

Do you think these ads work? Tell us what made (or would make) you quit smoking below in the comment section.

This one hurts me the most. People who smoke around their children need punched in the face. Could care less if you do it, but do not subject others, especially small children, to it
