To tell you the truth, I don’t believe that even the most creative anti-smoking ads can make you quit smoking after you see it. It’s just not that easy to break bad habits.

When a smoker runs into another anti-smoking campaign, often the reaction is – “yes maybe it is cool, but it won’t make me quit – it’s a waste of time and money”. Well of course, one single even the most creative ad won’t change your mind in a second, but it does create the awareness that smoking is a BAD thing, and when a message is being repeated over an over again – it finds its place somewhere deep inside your unconscious mind.

It takes time, but someday it may build up, and it will seem as though YOU have an idea – “smoking is really a stupid thing to do, I quit!” What may seem as your own idea on quitting smoking, could be a huge job of those creative anti-smoking social ads you used to see everywhere.

So, if you want to help those hooked on smoking, make this list of “Top 40+ Creative Ads Made to Stop You Smoking” VIRAL. Digg it, blog it, share it on Facebook, give thumbs up on StumbleUpon, etc.. – the more people will see these social campaigns, the more people we will help.
