Quit Now Quote Posters

One thousand Americans stop smoking every day - by dying. Cigarettes are the only available consumer product that is hazardous to health when used as intended. Smoking kills, and if you're killed, you've lost a very important part of your life. If we see you smoking we will assume you are on fire and take appropriate action. I'm glad I don't have to explain to a man from Mars why each day I set fire to dozens of pieces of paper and put them in my mouth. Cigarettes are killers that travel in packs. The cigarette does the smoking - you're just the sucker. The best way to stop smoking is to just stop - no ifs and butts. A cigarette is a pipe with a fire at one end and a fool at the other. The public health authorities never mention the main reason many Americans have for smoking heavily, which is that smoking is a fairly sure, fairly honorable form of suicide. The best way to stop smoking is to carry wet matches.
