Australia Enforces Cigarette Packs With Disturbing Images

I dont see this actually working. They're some pretty harsh images, but overall I still dont think they will be effective. At the end of the day, people will smoke if their going to smoke.

I gave up back in March, but the gory images on the packets wasn't what did it. In fact, since I was pissed off at the government for using such childish means of perception management, I probably smoked a couple of years longer than I would have.

Australia is a test bed. Soon it'll be gory images of shooting victims on firearms boxes in the US or gory images of obese people in cardiac arrest on butter tubs in Canada... They cannot (yet) just ban these things so they will try to traumatise you with unpleasant photos and non-scientific "proof" that their way of thinking is the right one.

Meanwhile the various strains of hybrid wheat which go into EVERYTHING processed and which have most likely contributed majorly to the western world's obesity epidemic are cleared for sale without extra taxes and without a being identified as "the bad guy".

Thats great to hear! I too gave up smoking about 6 months ago. I simply was sick of tossing my money away, and the poor heath it gave me. I went on a big health kick this last year, and smoking just didnt fit anymore :) I honestly dont miss them one bit. Well... I cant say that... every so often I crave the habit, but its out of my head as quick as it entered. I suppose that may always be with me.

Again, congrats to you as well :)

We can only dream! But where would the funding come from? The government usually backs stuff like the above topic, and Im SURE they wouldn't draw the curtains on themselves :P

Re: Australia Enforces Cigarette Packs With Disturbing Images
I gave up about 5 months ago. Wasn't too bad. Once I decided to stop the odd craving could be squashed.

It wasn't because of these images, just had enough of hacking and gurgling and paying through the nose for poisoned tobacco. We don't even know where it's grown or how, anymore. They closed down all the farms here.

However, these images are a form of deep hypnosis. Subconscious barbs, to make people get sicker than they might - if they smoke. The power of suggestion. Magick.

Smoking is on the decline because of the images no doubt about it. Now the cigarette pack are no longer maked with logos of anykind only a verry small brand name in plain lettering. The rest of the pack has images of the legacy that smoking leaves behind. Its a good thing I wish this was around when I was a kid. Cigarette companies are evil I cant wait for the rest of the world to adopt the same strategies

Yep and a year ago they made it so it took up 75% of the pack. It doesn't work so i don't see the point. Its never made we want to quit smoking.

Re: Australia Enforces Cigarette Packs With Disturbing Images
You guys are so behind the times. I mean really. Canada has cigarette packs with oral cancer all over a tongue and rotten teeth on a pretty girl and red blood dribble peed into a toilet. We have had these nasty images and health warnings on our cigarettes for over 10 years. Every year they change the pictures. Health Canada picks the pictures and the Cigarette producers have to print them on the front of the packs.

Big Fucking Hairy Deal. Who the fuck cares. People need to know what smoking does and what it looks like because they are too stupid to figure it out for themselves.

If people would get smart and educate themselves and not do stupid things then they would not have to be told their stupid. Stupid.

Smoking costs the Health Care Systems WorldWide Hundreds of Millions of Dollars. Thats why smoking is now banned all over the place.

I read an article on The Age online yesterday about the man in that first pic. Sadly, his condition is more likely the result of radiation treatment. So very sad with billions of dollars sent for cancer treatments, and chemo and radiation seems to be all they have.

Who wants to marry anyone with a $200 a month habit?

$200 a month ...may as well be cocaine...they still won't stop and that's $200 a month to feed their habit before they buy food..

$200 a month forever..

$72,000 in 30 years..

Not much of a habit..

Re: Australia Enforces Cigarette Packs With Disturbing Images
I think cigs are more toxic than years ago when they were just tobacco. I just don't recall so much cancer 40 years ago or so as there is now. It's become an epidemic.
