Smoke Free Grads in the Year 2000

Way back in 1991-1992, there was a smoke-free promotion going on in my city. In High School art class, we were asked to create anti-smoking posters. I created one with a picture of a grave being used as an ashtray with REAL cigarette butts glued to it, and huge letters that said "Smoke and Die" (I stole the idea from the "Skate or Die" Nintendo game). I won in the category of "strongest message" and recieved a free POW t-shirt. Here's a picture of me wearing it while hitting my cousin over the head with a meat tenderizer:

A few years later, I started smoking. It just goes to show that these campaigns don't do shit.

By the way, if you really DO want to quit smoking, I highly recommend the book Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking because it worked for me.
