I thought this was normal

Yeah in Canada it's common, I'm pretty sure most of the States has the same laws. This isn't unique to India.

Cause it’s America and we don’t care about anything except your money!

You are so right, no other country in the world cares about money at all! Especially not India.

You’re on Reddit, if you dont hate on America or fully support the left side of the political spectrum you get downvoted into oblivion (aside from subs that are known to be crawling with right wingers)

It’s a lot of young kids on here too that get stuck in that “America bad” mindset where they just comment dumb shit like that one even if it doesn’t make any sense.

Most of Europe has this too. Now I am thinking where OP is from this seems weird, this is standard packaging in vast parts of the globe.


Jbj0815 t1_j247jw4 wrote

We have that in Germany too.

Started with just Quotes like "Smoking shortens your lifespan", the kids collected them like trading cards.

But they still smoke… Ink wasted

On the topic of size of warning pictures:

"As if the problem is, we haven't noticed yet. Cigarettes could come in a black pack labeled TUMORS, and smokers would still line up to get them." "I can't wait to try these fuckin' things. I bet you get a tumor as soon as you light up." -Denis Leary.

I’m pretty sure that’s everywhere but America. But they should do this here too!

Do you try to collect them all like Garbage pail kids??


SobasanBobba t1_j24mc08 wrote

In the uk we have this too but instead it’s difficult body parts affected by smoking so you can assemble them together like a gigazord

My dad is a smoker And I am seeing these from last 15 years in Pakistan

We’ve had that in the UK for years

Meh, it honestly probably just desensitizes them to it. Sure it may be effective in grossing you out for a little bit, but scary pictures dont kick addiction. Guys are just going to be buying these so much that they wont pay any mind to the pictures anymore after a short time.

How is this interesting? It's like this in most of the world.


MisterTeeEM t1_j27tvbc wrote

Australia has pictures of organ damage and a guy who died 10 days after his picture was taken

And yet it doesn't do much in the way of helping people quit.

Cool. We have much less brutal pictures in Poland.

Friend of mine had tracheostomy and smoked through that little pipe sticked in throat.

We're all gonna die eventually.

I think these do more harm than they help. Everyone knows smokers but basically no one knows people who are fucked like that. I know people who died from lung cancer, but have never seen anyone losing a leg or something like that from smoking. They should put something more realistic on it


vid_23 t1_j24hxqg wrote

Most of them have Lung cancer and other lung related stuff on them


jeanyous t1_j24krxr wrote

Yes that's true. But if you say smoking makes your legs fall off and no one has ever seen someone lose a leg due to smoking, the majority of people will think it's bs and ignore it


Illustrious-Scar-526 t1_j25ctam wrote

That picture isn't BS though, and no one said anything about a leg. You are right in that we shouldn't lie or exaggerate these things because then it just makes people not trust, but that mouth cancer is a real thing. And it is a real slow and real painful way to die.

People talking like you, saying something isn't real and then using your own speculation as evidence (when tobaco does in fact cause mouth cancer, and can get worse than that photo). That's how people become misinformed. No one ever said tobacco makes your legs fall off, you just made that up. That's how people become misinformed, by doing exactly what you are doing. Don't just speculate and then use your own speculation as a fact. No one said anything about a leg, you just made that up, and now you're saying that it's wrong to lie about people losing their legs. You are causing misinformation, you are not preventing it.

I hope you never have the proof that I have experienced. I don't want anyone to watch the horrors of mouth/lung cancer take over the life of someone they love. Especially when they are the ones who caused it on themselves. I tried to make them stop smoking for years, if only they had a little more convincing..... But luckily they did not lose their legs, that would be horrible!


jeanyous t1_j25g7n8 wrote

I didn't mean that it doesn't happen. It's just rare. Lung cancer is the most common thing among smokers. And I know 3 people who died of lung cancer due to smoking too. Here (in germany) there are also people with missing legs or feet for example on the cigarette packs. They don't exactly fall off but have to be amputated due to blood cloths i believe.
