We’ve all seen anti smoking ads but I just had to share this one since its got to be the bloodiest one I’ve ever seen.  I doubt they would put something like this up in the states but its nice to see other countries remind people how bad it is to smoke.  I’m just glad I don’t smoke the same brand as this guy.  What do you guys think, are these types of ads good or bad?

This is pretty good, but I personally prefer poster ads. A lot of times those ads have one really strong visual image that explains everything why we should stop smoking.

There are some really strong poster ads out there. The imagery is done really well on many of them but its quite difficult to compete when so many teen heroes in movies are smokers and that image has been handed to them since childhood. We’re going to put more posts up with anti smoking ads that we think are strong.

It is bloody, I just hope more ADS and campaigns gets to young people to avoid even trying to smoke cigarettes. As for smokers it is not too late to quit, unless it is really late!

Hi, as powerful as the imagery is here, I do think they have missed the point about why people smoke. I think most people realise that smoking is bad for them, but that’s not the problem, quitting is the problem! The main reasons people smoke are held at a subconscious level. That is why, despite knowing consciously how bad smoking is, people still struggle in their attempts to give it up. It is only when the message gets through to the subconscious that an individual will truly become smoke free. Unfortunately this type of ad will only ever communicate to the conscious. For any one to give up they must first find their own reasons (this is where the ad can help), but once they have done that they must re-educate their subconscious mind. There are various proven ways to do this, hypnosis, affirmations etc, however the one that I prefer with my clients, the one I find is easiest and most stress free is the use of subliminal messaging. This way the subconscious self image is changed gradually with the conscious mind of the smoker even knowing until the day when they suddenly realise they don’t actually want to smoke.

Thanks for the comments Andrew. I agree that these ads don’t necessarily help anybody quit, I’m not sure any ad can actually do that. I am on day 24 without cigarettes myself and I never thought I’d be able to quit. Cold Turkey was the way for me but I’ve heard good things about hypnosis. Mind if I email you directly about getting more info on hypnosis? I’m starting another site about it and might want to interview you.

I have tried hypnosis hypnosis to stop smoking which I have found from the site http://www.thoughtsbecomereality.co.uk. They helped a lot to stop smoking through hypnosis and conducted various programs and provided various suggestions.
