Stop Smoking Now

Apparently, we Americans are too stupid to heed the old warning labels on cigarette packages because now they’ve gotten,  well  more graphic. Dead bodies, diseased lungs and a man on a ventilator are images soon to be slapped on the side of cigarette packages, all in an effort to help smokers quit.

The new labels must be on cigarette packages and in advertisements no later than September 2012. They represent the first change in cigarette warnings in 25 years.

They show intense images, including one titled “WARNING: Cigarettes are addictive,” illustrated with a photograph of a man smoking a cigarette through a hole in his throat. Others messages point out the dangers of secondhand smoke to children, tobacco’s causal link to fatal lung disease, cancer, strokes, heart disease and death.

More than 221,000 Americas will be diagnosed with lung cancer in 2011, accounting for about 14 percent of all cancer cases, according to the American Cancer Society. Nearly 157,000 men and women are expected to die from lung cancer this year. With numbers like that, one might think you need to see graphic images to help adults stop and make sure kids never start smoking.

A 1964 surgeon general’s report that linked smoking to lung cancer and other diseases spurred a broad anti-smoking campaign and health warnings on cigarette packages. If you are trying to quit smoking and need help, call number 1-800-784-8669 to the National Network of Tobacco Cessation Quitlines. You can stop smoking.
