Every smoker is aware of the damage their habit causes, both to them and to those around. However, to finally quit, that extra push is usually needed. From books on how to quit smoking, to patches, chewing gums and hypnosis, these smoking ads find their niche.

From showing graphic images of the damage caused by smoking to appealing to the smokers' children - these creative ads have tried it all. But do these commercials can 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 most innovative anti-smoking ads ever created. Hopefully, they can help you to make the first step - it will get easier after that.

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
