This PSA announcement was inspired by the FDA’s new warning labels on cigarette packages.

By no means am I endorsing government intrusion in private enterprise. I don’t believe that cigarette companies should be held to these types of warning standards by the Federal Government. But I do believe it’s up to the general populace to inform, warn, and discourage the use of tobacco products.

Which is what I just did. Thanks for reading and thanks for sharing.

  1. IF I was tempted to smoke (which I never have been in my entire life) it would only take ONE of these pictures to dissuade me! :)

    The horrible, agonizing, and prolonged effects that smoking has on one’s health, life, and relationships are truly incredible. Ironically, nurses (who see these effects firsthand on a daily basis) have a higher percentage of smokers than any other profession, proving education about the effects of smoking is not the key to stopping it. If our federal government believes they can scare people out of smoking, they are sadly mistaken.
