We dropped by at a convenience store last week to get some chocolate shake. That was when we chanced upon these cigarette packs with health warnings plastered all over them. In our last report about the gruesome visuals, we said they'd come out in March. But it was only last week that we spotted them out in the wild.
Hearing about these in the news, it didn't feel like they'd affect the choices of smokers. But seeing them in the flesh? If you're a smoker, you can't help but be taken aback by the visuals. Although, admittedly, we feel like people will eventually get used to them, thus rendering the images as impotent background noise.
Look at these, and tell us what you think.
Will these scary-looking warnings make you quit smoking?
