17 Of The Most Creative Anti-Smoking Ads Ever Made

Posted on Design 51

Sure, smokers are aware of the damage their habit causes, but to finally quit, that extra push is usually needed. And that push might come in the form of these innovative anti-smoking ads, the most creative ones we’ve ever seen.

From showing graphic images of the damage caused by smoking to appealing to the smokers’ children – the creatives working in the ad industry have tried it all. But do these ads actually help people quit smoking? Even though the answer isn’t a simple yes or no, multiple studies done in the last decade have shown that anti-smoking campaigns are still the most cost-effective way to at least deter new smokers from joining the club, especially when the people in question are the youth.

Do you think these ads work? Tell us your quitting-smoking stories in the comments below.
