Last night hubby and I rented DVD's. At the beginning of one there was a commercial for stopping smoking.....an ad I had never seen before.....and WOW did it hit me between the eyes.....
It shows a guy in a cowboy outfit singing some country western song through a microphone next to a hole in his throat.....and he is singing about smoking not always causing cancer of the lung, but sometimes it will cause them to snip out your tongue....sometimes it won't cause you to die right away but you'll get to have a hole in your throat for the rest of your days......it was startling, to say the least.
It took me by surprise and was very powerful for me......and just one more thing I will use to keep reminding myself why I don't want to ever smoke again.....
It was just one of those images that I will conjure up whenever I am tempted or feeling sorry for myself or just being whiny about not smoking.....GEEEEEEEEEZZZZZ, what an insidious horrible addiction!!!!!

Blockbusters and also when you buy them they also have advertising on it.

really? it's (obviously) been a long time since i rented a dvd from blockbuster; you can get almost anything for free from the library, if you're willing to wait (and i am; if a movie's that important to me, i'll go to the theater).

Yes, Blockbuster is where we rent......I really like the idea of Public Service Announcments on DVD's......this was the first time I've seen one for smoking cessation, but I've seen them for drug abuse and teen pregnancy......I think they are a good idea, and at least for me the one I saw over the weekend did what the makers wanted it to do.....P.
