I'll quit as soon as the truth.com shows a AD that convinces me to quit.

right now they are just grossing me out which is not helping the problem

Their ads are really missing the mark. They should just show what a cancerous lung from a smoker looks like.

I quit awhile ago for 8 months. The patch worked well, I started on level 2, level one is for insane smokers...I was smoking about 3/4 of a pack a day. I started up again but now I only smoke about 5 cigs a day, but if I go out drinking LOOK OUT, a pack in a couple hours and ash tray mouth in the morning

I don't even smoke and those ads ae getting on my nerves. I can't stand the "smarter than thou" types who think they're imparting some kind of great wisdom by telling people that smoking is bad for them... so pretentious it's sickening.

Yep, CDN$7.00 is about what I pay most of the time...

That was the one thing about going to school in Virginia for a year: cigarettes were USD$1.82/pk and sometimes you could get two-for-one, or 50 cents off.

Here in Nova Scotia the entire notion of `cheaper smokes' has reserved solely for those who purchased machines, loose tobacco, and empty filter tubes (which more and more people are doing now that per-pack prices have risen so high). We're seeing some factory floor scraping brands now, but there's no such thing as a `sale' on tobacco products.

But if you really want to know the difference between Canadian and American smokes, follow this linky here. I don't know how I manage to look past it, but I do.

Hrm... now I need a smoke.

My favorite one is the brain with the bullet whole in it and the limp cig is a close second.

I'm personally rather partial to the terribly blunt Tobacco Smoke Hurts Babies and the eeeeewwww factor of Cigarettes Cause Mouth Disease.

Tighten your wallets and stock up on rice and Kraft dinners, Alberta smokers. You think those coffin nails are expensive now?

Well, in England is about 4.50ukp, or $7.50US for a pack. Time to try another method of killing myself.

IMO, the best anti-smoking ad was the British one with John Cleese. He up-ended a bowl onto the table and said "This is the amount of ash produced by a 40-a-day smoker"

(pause)

" .. of course, they're not all cremated"
