For those smokers who are encouraged to quite smoking due to the graphic warnings on cigarette packages, Health Canada can pat themselves on the back. To the majority of smokers who have not quit since these images were introduced, they might be suggesting they don't want them hanging around too much longer.
Researchers at the Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C., found that heart patients in a study who were more optimistic were 30 to 50 per cent less likely to die in the 10 years following their diagnoses than those who are more pessimistic.So when you're feeling immortal and reach for a cigarette, just stare into the warning you receive, visual your arteries clogging, and contemplate.
Now light that cigarette, inhale deeply, and think really hard about how guilty you feel and how badly you want to quit. Hold that drag in a little longer just to really go deep. That's it, choke your brain.
You are damned dear smoker, you are damned!
