I hate seeing those television ads aimed at smokers to encourage them to stop smoking. I could really forgo them.

Do they turn you off?

I hope they make a difference to someone's life, they're doing the trick if people feel this way about them!
Yeah, but I'm not a smoker. Smokers in my family don't seem to care about the ads.

It's a bit like the ads for animal abuse . . . we get so upset and the perps just ignore the ads. I am not sure that the ads prevent smoking really.

I don't like them, but I'm glad they are there, as they are important. They make me hate cigarettes even more, which is the point. I think they are effective, but I don't know how effective they are against people who do smoke.
I must admit I think some of them are pretty clever. I do like these ads. I'm hoping they will scare some sense into the intended target.

Me too!

I don't really watch much comercial tv so I haven't really noticed them. The pictures on the packaging are gross though. I wonder whether the tv ones make a big difference to the rate of people giving up smoking?
NO they do not turn me off as I am an ex smoker, and turned off smoking anyway.

I think those ads are excellent and I hope a lot of people take notice of them and give up smoking.

I gave up because I was scared of the health consequences.

Most definitely. I don't smoke!
NO, don't turm me off, they should go further for the smokers and say how OLD they make people look before there time! How SICK they become and die young! We are among for these ads too!
that should read we are PAYING for these ads
