Now this is true use of psychology. No wonder it got millions of viewers hours within its release. Some say smoking is exercising their personal freedom. It’s amusing because they aren’t free, they are a slave. They are a slave to the dangerous addiction to nicotine and to the tobacco company which knowingly sells this dangerous item for substantial profit, much of which is then reinvested to convince children to take up the habit they know is dangerous. Quitting is easy. It requires taking control of yourself and not becoming a pray of tobacco companies.
Almost all smokers know cigarettes are bad for them. They’re not delusional. Watch how one ad campaign got smokers to acknowledge the harms out loud, perhaps marking their first step to change.
