These commercials show the effects that smoking has had on real people. It shows people who have throat cancer and need to use a voice box. They tell you of how different your life is even if you fight the cancer, but must use a voice box for the rest of your life. The commercials show people in the hospital who are really dying from cancer. One man that really had me thinking, stated that he was only smoking for 3 years and he developed throat cancer. This made me wise to the myth that smoking only has these types of effects if you’re a smoker for many years.
I do have hope that these commercials may hit home with the younger generation- as they are starting up this habit at such young ages. Maybe it will help us smokers to see the reality of what smoking will do to us and how much risk we face when lighting up a cigarette.
