Can I rant for a second? Thanks FJ, I promise it won't be long. I'm seriously getting tired of that God damned Truth Campaign. Their commercials are ridiculous. "Methane is found in dog poop, and is also in cigarettes." No shit? Yea, methane usually occurs when you mix carbon and hydrogen. Guess we shouldn't use natural gas either, since its main component is found in dog poop. I assume we shouldn't breathe either. You know, since methane is in our atmosphere AND happens to be in dog poop. My God, I understand that smoking is unhealthy, but using the flimsiest premise to associate smoking with dog shit is just idiotic.   
   
 I'm sorry FJ, I'm not a smoker, but the Truth Campaign needs to get its shit together.    
   
TL;DR Truth Campaign is moronic.

When i saw that commercial I was instantly reminded of that kid's project where he/she told people substance X is used by murderers, 100% of people exposed to substance X die and other negative things like this associated to this thing and it turns out substance X was water

I agree with you fella. Let me put this in perspective, I live in the Midwest, and not just anywhere in the Midwest, but on an Indian Reservation. You know the only places I see cigarette ads? A gas station owned by the tribe, and a small casino owned by the tribe. These ads consist of what brand the cig is and how much they are, THAT'S IT. They don't even encourage smoking, the ads just get a name and price out there. You know where I see anti-smoking ads? FUCKING EVERYWHERE. Billboards, gas stations in nearby town and cities, magazines, papers, TVs, god damn EVERYWHERE. All they do is bastardize smoking without giving the other side of the story. Take the one with the hole in her throat, I can promise you she went through almost a carton each day for years. I'm not a smoker (I nearly died after and incident with smoke, so I'm good) but I absolutely hate Truth Campaign

My daughter is young and doesn't understand anything about smoking. She's never really been around smokers. She did smell smoke on my brother and asked me why Uncle Winky (his nickname) smelled like birthday candles. When she saw this commercial she had nightmares for three nights. I know that they are trying to send a message (that we already know) but these SHOCK commercials are a bit too much.
I also agree that texting while driving is unsafe, but the PSA's, or whatever, are getting out of control.

I'm sure you know already, but I think these commercials are targeted towards youth and long-time smokers as a scare tactic deterrent. Most people genuinely have no knowledge on much of any science, so news like this can be a little disgusting.

I though i was the only one who just hated those commercials. They just get so fucking redundant. It just feels so much like the whole D.A.R.E. program we had to go through in school.

We fucking get it, smoking is bad for you, that should be common knowledge. Its simple, dont want the health effects from smoking? Dont smoke or dont be around people while theyre smoking.

I remember taking the D.A.R.E. Program seriously and kept their attitude for maybe three years after. I feel like it's around that time that you realize it was just a bunch of scare tactics.

Exactly, theyre just trying to scare you. I came to the realization that they were lying to us (mainly about weed and psychedelics) and just felt so mad
