Anti-Smoking Campaigns - me too ...

I have been discussing Smoking and cigarettes quite a bit (2 entries to be precise). I had earlier talked about Jim’s Burnt Offerings and then, a couple of days back, I discussed Chicago’s Smokers’ Lounge.

In order to prevent any conscious and sub-conscious criticism, I decided to absolve this blog of any promotional intentions for smoking…
Here are some good campaigns I have collated from various sources, all underlying the theme of “Anti-smoking”…Have a look..

In fact, there is a particular graph that explains the entire cycle of rejection or abandonment of a previously adopted product or service. This model was put forward by Everett Rogers and has been discussed as an exception to the “Classic” diffusion model



An effective anti-smoking campaign would be an example of such a trend, where the habit of smoking is gradually abandoned. Another clich├ęd example would be the rejection of an older technology to be replaced with a new one. That is when Java would replace C or Laptops replace PCs in corporates….similar trends are shown.
Not sure at which part of the curve Indian smokers are at this point of time, but one thing is for sure, they really do not appear to sliding downside till now...not at least the way this curve predicts..
Will wait and see the annual report of ITC to confirm the same ;-)

Other than the anti-smoking medicine chantix, the quit smoking drug Zyban and a whole array of nicotine replacement therapies, namely, nicotine gum, patches, lozenges et al are also available in the market that help you to trigger off smoking cessation. But, significant Chantix facts present at the website http://www.chantixmagic.com make it apparent that in spite of the presence of all these anti-smoking therapies, Chantix still remains the most highly sought after quit smoking drug on account of the Chantix superb mechanism that helps you to get rid of nicotine addiction at ease.

Puffing away at the cigarette is always a pleasurable experience for all smoking addicts and the feeling of well-being provided by nicotine makes the users of cigarettes and other tobacco containing substances consistently addicted to the habit of smoking. But as the ill-effects of smoking show off slowly and gradually and a smoker becomes a victim to atherosclerosis, Buerger's Disease and a whole range of other smoking induced ailments, he fins no way out other than opting for the antismoking medicine Chantix .
