What do you think about the new cigarette labels?

i do not have a link but i saw in the paper today that new cig labels will feature very graphic labels on them. and it will say that cigs can kill you. do you think this well have an impact on the amount of people smoking or do you feel it will not decrease or increase.

  • I do not feel it would increase the smoking population. It is an addiction. they will smoke until they are in the mindset to quit that can take a long time for some people no matter what they are told.

  • sadly, it won't stop them..my mom and sister both smoke and I've tried to "educate' them on the dangers and reality of they are killing themselves and it doesn't phase them. They answer like most do that I've talked to..I'm gonna die anyway..

  • people who smoke know what it does to them, but the addiction is too strong for them to care. as an ex-smoker who smoked a pack a day for 9 years, i can honestly say the new labels wouldn't have stopped me. the only thing that can make a person quit is themselves.

  • If people do not know by now that smoking is bad for their health, these new pictures are not going to do a damn thing. Only a total brain dead idiot would think that inhaling smoke laced with tons of chemicals is a good thing.


     


    I smoke and I have no illusions about it. I like the menthol taste and when they loose that flavor and start tasting like nasty no flavor cigarettes, I will quit.

  • I have family and friends who have watched their loved ones pass on while fighting lung cancer, and they still smoke. The graphics will have no effect. Heck women still smoke while pregnant. No little picture will stop them.

  • ok do you feel it will prevent teens from starting to smoke? i say no. but it might prevent some. it depends on the kid. i do not agree with these labels and i am not a nonsmoker. its not going to make any differance why waste the time and energy.
