wow the idea is really good.. it's really clear message even maybe for smoking it's kinda rude. it's depend on each people. iam really agree that smoking make us sick not a short time but the long time effect. and it kinda difficult if people want to stop smoking if they already addcited *no offense just my humble opinion.
This makes me miss where I started in graphic design in high school where I would have to think of creative ideas like this. I absolutely LOVE this and HATE cigarettes lol... I can't even be around them, the smoke will put me in the hospital, it sets my asthma off horribly
I smoke. I enjoy smoking. I also enjoy having the freedom to choose to smoke. As opposed to your caption, cigarettes are not our greatest opponent. There are so many things wrong in the world and you choose to target smoking. How about posting something against human trafficking? or the or the people being killed by the thousands in Syria? Instead you post your propaganda about protecting us from ourselves. You even got a DD from it, congratulations.
Lol at all the comments. ;d;d Ok then, let me post my opinion as well...
To all smokers (I am one as well ): If you LIKE smoking, smoke. Doesn't mean you'll get lung cancer or anything unless you smoke like a friggin' chimney. ;d I smoke about ten cigs a day, sometimes 4 or 5, if I'm at home and/or alone. Smoking even makes me feel better quite often. Hey, it may be just a placebo effect, but I don't really care as long as it works for me. If it works for you the same way, smoke a cig and don't let the non smokers tell you how gross you are just because they believe all the crap about secondhand smoking. Anyway, and if you want to quit smoking, but can't... You can, actually. And don't blame cigarettes just because you don't have the will to quit them. It's your fault. Not the cigarettes' fault, not the other smokers' fault... ;d It's your business. (Just sayin', because I've seen enough people who don't take the responsibility for their own lack of will.)
To the rude non smokers: Ok, people, do non smokers have to be anti-smokers?? I mean, be a little polite. Quit it with the "EWWWW, CIGARETTES, SO GROSS! I HATE PEOPLE WHO SMOKE" and stop it with this secondhand smoking propaganda, 'cause it isn't even true. There are so many unhealthy things around us every day which we cannot even avoid. Like pollution from cars, for example. Unhealthy food. Yeah, many people eat unhealthy food, you probably do as well unless you're rich... Hm, television is unhealthy, too. Ok, ok... Ermm... And you can avoid smokers, if you really hate the smell that much. Also, you can't be angry at people for smoking outside. I mean, seriously? xD
To non smokers who are tolerant (although I did not see many... ): Thank you. We should all have the right to choose our own lifestyle as long as it doesn't hurt others. F*** the smokers who smoke in your face. But still, many smokers aren't like that at all.
But wait, let me say something about the photomanipulation as well. It's alright, by that I mean nicely done. But it's KINDA rude. Kinda. I mean, a middle finger? Seriously, it may be taken as a middle finger to cigarettes (from those who want to quit smoking), but it can be also taken like this - middle finger to smokers. Smokers have been insulted so often because of their habit that it'll be probably taken the wrong way immediately. ;d Oh, and about the "Cigarette is our biggest opponent!!" part... What the hell? Seriously, what the hell?! xD Reality check! This sounds beyond stupid, because we all know that in the world there are a lot of enemies which are waaaaay worse than cigarettes... -.-'
I think you just did this for publicity. To have smokers & smokers at each other's throats. It works every time with these anti-smoking pics here on DA.I'm new here on DA and even I see that. It's also a way to get Daily Deviation (if it's reasonably good). Anti-smoking "message" deviations are the same as Twilight, Harry Potter, or Hunger Games deviations in terms of popularity.
It would very much surprise me, if some people seriously believe that the elimination of smoking would be the solution to so many problems... ;dd Instead of wasting their time "fighting against the oh-so-evil cigarettes", maybe they should concentrate on what's more important... -.-'
For starters a campaign could be started to stop giving sugar to children. Diabetes is already at epidemic proportions in the US and it's effects will dwarf any smoking related illnesses.
It's just that smoking has become this easy target. You can say anything anti-smoking that you want, make stuff up even and no one will ever question the validity of the statement. A person who has never smoked may or may not live a longer life. A person who smokes may or may not live a shorter life. It's not a definitive thing. What is a sure thing is that everyone's life will end at some point whether they smoked or not.
No one is saying that smoking is a healthy activity, but I am most certainly saying that there are more serious issues facing our planet and the people who live here. If someone really wants to make a difference, try doing something to fight world hunger for starters. Then we can move onto sexual equality, learning to co-exist in peace with each other, doing something about global warming, controlling air pollution, providing basic health care for all, put an end to human trafficking, and the list goes on...
I can't stand smoking. Especially when I am getting over a cold and I have had a cough for weeks and no relief, but just as it starts to go away, someone smokes near me and my cough gets worse than it was before >: (
Non smokers remind me of religious fanatics in some way... Pushing their views down other people's throats... Trying to convert them... Not being tolerant... etc. ;d Yeah, why not, bashing smokers is apparently way better than simply avoiding smokey places, if they don't like the smell that much. Meh.

Actually it could. You're body starts to repair itself when you stop, so if you quit before you die from smoking, allowing you're body to get all that shit out of it's system, you have a chance of dying from something else.
Even if that were true, smoking contributes to nothing as opposed to not smoking at all. So by your misguided logic you're to say to start smoking it's going to make matters or things even better? I think not. And I also think you posted your comment just to disagree to disagree to start argument.
You did well. No non smoker wants to smell a smoker's choking smoke.

I'd like to say YES to this picture. :3 From infancy, I grew up around smoking. Now, as a teenage asthmatic, I greatly appreciate seeing this picture. DON'T SMOKE AROUND YOUR KIDS, DON'T LET ANYONE ELSE DO IT, JUST DON'T SMOKE, OKAY, IT'S BAD FOR EVERYONE
