It is really necessary to shove this poor woman's face on our TV to scare people into not smoking? She kept smoking when she was going through treatments for oral cancer.

Adults are incapable of making their own decisions, of course.
So the government wants to help us make our own decisions, or, if that fails, make them for us.

It's kind of creepy they're still using her after she died. Are post-mortum contracts a thing?  And why did they have to show her after she morphed into that ET-shaped thing?

They probably gave her a carton or three of smokes up front for the rights....

I'm all for these ads.  If they get people to quit or never take up the habit, what the hell?

The ones I don't like are the second-hand smoke ones---like the one that shows someone smoking on their balcony and a bit of smoke travels up to someone else's balcony, into their apartment, through all the rooms and right into the lungs of a baby in its bedroom.  That's a bit over-the-top.  It also puts unrealistic fears into people's heads.  Second-hand smoke is a concern mainly when people live or work in homes or offices where there is heavy smoking consistently going on.

They are also scaremongering with third-hand smoke, meaning that if someone ever smoked in a room (even years ago), you're gonna die horribly from it.   Pot smoke residue is probably okay though....  LOL

I quit smoking last November, without heed of these "scare tactics" commercials. I still say they are goading people to smoke, especially younger people who have the feeling of "immortality," and are even more likely to see these commercials as scare propaganda.

I have a good frend fighting lung cancer now - known him for many years. He has never smoked.
Very good family man.
Now he maintains an online journal about everything one goes through, from the first doctor's finding to date. He skips nothing.
Very good writer, his memoirs get hard to read, but harder to tear yourself away from.
It seems toally unfair.

That is completely unfair.  Sorry to hear this, Pa.

It killed my old man at age 56. I can't remember ever seeing him without a cigarette in his mouth. Of course I took it up but quit 35+ years ago.

In the UK, they print gruesome photos on cigarette packets. There's a full-colour shot of a guy with half his head eaten away by a tumor and another of a guy with his jaw surgically removed.  

There's enough educational data out there now about what smoking can do to you so there's really no excuse but nicotine is a very powerful and addictive substance. I've never been addicted to heroin but I've heard that quitting smack is marginally easier that tobacco.

Definitely sad for any person to have to die such a painful death, but this is the reality of the decisions we make. I am a smoker myself, and I am fully aware of the consequences. I do intend to quit, but keep telling myself "tomorrow" or "next year". But make no mistake, I'm not delusional about what I'm doing. I don't think there's any smoker that's unaware of the health risks.

Once, in Walgreens, I was in line behind an older lady that had a tracheotomy and one of those voice boxes they use for speaking. I listed as she said to the cashier, in that robotic sounding voice, "2 packs of Doral please.". It was really pretty sad.

If some people are so stubborn that they don't give it up, even after obvious health problems like that, it goes to show that these ad's will barely make a dint in peoples decision making.

Not everyone will develop cancer from smoking much like non smokers who haven't ever smoked or had direct contact with cigarette smoke can develop cancer. It all depends but it's a waste of time and money trying to scare smokers. My mom smokes, other people I know smoke and these scare tactic ads do nothing to influence them to quit or do anything to stop people from taking up the habit. It's all down to willpower, self control and not allowing yourself to be influenced. If someone genuinely wants to quit they'll do exactly that without these ads being shoved in their face. My father was a smoker for years and gave up the habit for good ten to fifteen years ago. No anti-smoking ads or aids helped him quit, he did it on his own.

Xtreme-- fair comment, but I think the idea of the ads is to scare kids into never starting smoking.

My son (20) had the same reaction seeing these ads, offended that they probably took advantage of her, grossed out that they would show that on TV, etc. 

Then he decided to quit smoking & hasn't smoked in about 3 weeks.

Sorry, but I think these ads work.  Not on everyone all the time, but there are
people out there that these ads will have a positive effect on.
In my opinion that's worth it.

I'm sure this now dead woman did give them permission to use her images
after her death.
I think she just wanted something positive to come of her awful experience.

The character I feel sorry for is Nathan, the Sioux Indian who died from inhaling second hand smoke.

She'd been travelling the country advocating against smoking, for years prior to her death---at least since 2005, according to Wikipedia.  So, I've no doubt she approved these messages prior to her death.
