Top 40+ Creative Ads Made to Stop You Smoking

To tell you the truth, I don’t believe that even the most creative anti-smoking advertisement can make you quit smoking after you see it. It’s just not  how the things work.

When a smoker runs into another anti-smoking ad, 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 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 find its place somewhere deep inside your unconscious mind.

It takes time, but some day it may build up, and it will seem as though as YOU have an idea – “smoking is really a stupid thing to do, I quit!”. What may seem as your own idea, could be a huge job of those creative antismoking 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 it, the more people we will help.
