Top 22 Anti-Smoking Ads Ever Created

You’ve probably thought about quitting at least a dozen times. The cost keeps rising, and people keep telling you to stop. You’ve probably tried going cold turkey, or have even succeeded in not smoking for a month. But you’re here because you went back to the cigarettes. And you really need some motivation to cut it from your life again.

We know you’re trying to quit. And you’re not alone. The National Health Morbidity Survey 2008 shows that 71.1% of Malaysians had intentions to quit in the coming 6 months. Some try. Some succeed. Some backslide.
