    these commercials are offensive. I know its bad for me I smoke but there are warnings all over the product. why dont they show the overweight guy with tubes shoved in him or legs missing from diabetes. should we have commercials on the risk of pharmaceuticals showing corpses in crashed cars? how about showing the alcoholic with liver damage? It seems that smoking is the worst of all and again I admit it is certainly not healthy but do we need to all be subjected to these images? It will not convince me to stop only I can do that by making my own mind up.
