I have to say that I've never smoked, but my dad has and I've seen what he's going through with COPD, Heart disease, badn circulation in his legs and has had 3 respiratory failures (lucky to be alive).
The graphic ad of the woman who shows how beautiful she was as a teen starting to smoke and the shocking reveal of her with hardly any hair, a hole in her throat and no teeth putting in dentures is quite disturbing.
I was actually kind of grossed out by it the first time I saw it because you have to think of how these cigarette companies made it sound cool to smoke and lets face it a lot of women do smoke so that they don't reach for food, I knew of a couple of girls in high school that smoked because they didn't want to gain weight.
These companies knew they were getting people addicted to their product, but then again no one puts a gun to our heads to do anything.
I guess they have to use the shock value of the commercial to try and get teens never to try it and to see if they can change some minds out there to quit smoking all together.
I know it's horrible to see someone you love fighting to live, but I have mixed feelings about this commercial. I think it might be a little too graphic for children (I'm talking the little ones ) if they happen to be in the room, it is kind of scary.
What do you think?
