Every smoker is aware of the damage their habit causes, both to them and those around. However, to finally quit smoking, that extra push is usually needed. From books on quitting smoking, to patches, chewing gums and hypnosis, these anti-smoking ads find their niche.
From showing graphic images of the damage caused by smoking to appealing to the smokers' children - these advertisement examples have tried it all. But do these printed 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.
Here we bring you some of the best ads ever created. Hopefully, they can help you to make the first step - it will get easier after that.
