Cigarette packets are cool. Fact. Just ask your kids.

2 May

If you’re a mum, or a dad. If you hate the thought of your kids taking up smoking. If you believe that cigarettes shouldn’t be marketed in the same way as any other consumer product, let alone marketed specifically at your teenagers. Then watch this.

This is why I’ve been banging on about the plain packaging campaign by Cancer Research UK.

If you care less about any of this then please sign the petition.

I don’t know if it’ll make an ounce of difference, but I do know that cigarettes are not the same as oven pizza or soap, so they shouldn’t be marketed the same way.

    Gobsmacked. Like, the wind is knocked out of me. The answer most certainly bloody well IS plain.

    I’m totally behind changing the packages to plain with warnings. Cigarettes should in no way be marketed to children and the fact that they are is simply disgusting!

    Wow. I wanted to reach through the computer screen and just rip those pretty little packages of cigarettes out of those children’s hands. Awful!

I'm all about the debate. Would love to hear what you think.
