Anti-Smoking ads are one of the most widely circulated advertisements of any kind. It is so commonplace that one can readily see anti-smoking ads on TV, billboards, magazines, websites, and on the packaging of cigarettes themselves. While not banning cigarettes altogether, most governments all over the world require tobacco manufacturers to put a notice of warning on their products against the deadly effects caused by cigarette smoking. This government warning is obviously meant to discourage the public from consuming tobacco without directly infringing on freedom of its citizens to decide for themselves.
Stringent and aggressive as they are on their drive to draw the public away from cigarettes, the government and anti-smoking advocacy groups, still have much to do in order to bring about a society where diseases caused by tobacco are not anymore a problem. This of course can only happen if the public at large would cooperate with each and every person refraining from sucking lighted tobacco.
Right now, the statistics are staggering with millions of people every year die worldwide from diseases like lung cancer, heart ailments, throat cancer, hypertension, stomach ulcers and etc. which are directly or indirectly caused by cigarette smoking. With concerted actions, the number of fatalities attributed to tobacco will decrease and eventually be eliminated. In this campaign, anti-smoking ads will play a big role. They are the primary tools to reach out a vast segment of the population with less cost.
For anti-smoking ads to be effective, it is important that they are eye-catching or stimulating. Aside from that anti-smoking ads must be able to drive their message straight to the human senses in a witty, realistic, funny and enlightening style. In short, creative.
