  1. I agree with your campaign that smokers should quit as soon as possible because doesn’t only affect themselves but it has a long effect to their families. When a person smokes, he/ she is satisfied but when sickness comes; the family suffers a lot working and spending money to regain the health of their smoking addict love ones. Smoking is ingesting poison intentionally. Stop it and be happy!


  2. Despite on their million reasons,I still hate cigarette/smoke.. for me, its hard to take a breath. Smokers didn’t care whats the consequences with their health and the people around them.. Yes, there is advertisement that cigarette smoking is dangerous to our health.. but still Government still allow tobacco company to produce and sell cigarette. so how would people can stop taking cigarette?


  3. This was a very intelligent idea, and clearly shows the destructiveness of cigarettes.
    This was only one cigarette; now imagine what thousands upon thousands of cigarettes can do. Sucking poisonous smoke into our life-giving lungs is simply a terrible and deadly thing to do. Once we’ve lost our ability to breathe, ‘ALL IS LOST’.
