Now when I see these commericals, and how they demonize smokers... it's sad and pathetic.
Yes smoking is bad for you, but damn, it's a choice you make. Live with the choices you make...
I agree that smoking is a personal choice, and smokers certainly don't need to be demonized.
Still, I do believe that the companies that sell and market them, like most large evil corporations, are generally a bunch of scumfucks.
The problem is that a lot of people are stupid, and to reach stupid people you need stupid campaigns like this one.
Supposedly campaigns like this are having an impact, and that's fine with me. You have one group asking you to smoke and one telling you not to. Intelligent people won't listen to either and will decide for themselves.
