But i know very few people who smoke because they enjoy it. Most smoke simply because of addiction, even if it was begun to be seen as ___.
Some would fight the addiction if there were no more branding, but most would remain addicted. (And how would you differentiate the brands with a black pack? I would still wish to choose my additive free Mohawks.)
PS. I'm also addicted by now, though only 12-16 a day.
"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage." - Anaïs Nin
De-branding (genericizing?) cigarettes is not a measure that will help the addicted, but I think that eliminating the cigarette pack as a lifestyle badge would drastically cut the number of new addicts.
The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
