Maybe it will. Yet what comes next? The Government has so far, gone through a pattern:
1: Slogans offering scientific facts
2: Slogans that exaggerate things in order to scare smokers.
1: Pictures offering scientific facts.
Looking at that quickstep guide, can you guess what’s going to come next? I can’t hear what you might be saying, by the time you read this everything I’ve written is from the past, and thus I cannot hear it because to me you are from the future. Just an existential thought for you, there. The next logical step is to take pictures which are completely out of context and try to attach them to smoking.
Of course, there’s no way that you can ever stop all smokers from smoking. People are always going to do it. As it stands, smokers have to go outside whenever they want to smoke (something which is much more daunting for Brits than for people who live in the rest of the world, admittedly), they have to see pictures of dead lungs and stuff whenever they buy a pack of cigarettes, they have a lot for weight against them. Eventually the Government is going to decide that the current over-the-top photos of explosions being causes by smokers aren’t enough. They need something MOAR:
This is going to happen, believe me.
