    New Belgian cigarette packs have all to dissuade



    VRT News : Smokers in for a shock

    Other photos show a man behind bars in the shape of cigarettes as well as an image of open heart surgery.

    The photos are intended to shock and encourage smokers to pack in their habit.

    In all there are 42 different images.

    Whilst I agree with your sentiment that smoking is totally ill-advised (I would never encourage it of anyone!) - I am a smoker.

    But we've had those cigarete packs in Canada for about ten years now ....

    .... didn't make a damn of a difference! They're considered a joke.

    If you're still a communist after the age of sixty ... you're coming to your senses again ....
