@Charles 9 - If they didn't stink so much, I'd probably still be smoking.

Having said that, the pictures on the side of the boxes that showed someone with half their face missing did actually have an effect on me that led to giving up. Dying is one thing, having half your face eaten away by cancer is something else - people can face death because there are, literally, no personal consequences (allegedly). Being alive but in constant pain and disfigured etc. is a lot harder to rationalise away.
