They've had these pictures on cigarette packets for a while now in England. I guess smokers just learnt to ignore them after a while.

In Japan, a lot of men would be buying cigarettes hoping their teeth would improve to the condition of the above photo.

If tobacco companies have to put these grisly warnings on their products, it's only fair that alcoholic beverage companies should have to put grisly warnings on their products. How about putting an image of a baby decapitated by an automobile accident caused by a drunk driver?

Obviously, the target audience for this campaign are young people, who have that bravado attitude towards bad behavior.

I don't smoke ... and I downright hate the stuff. Now I'll hate it even more if some smoker places his pack of cigarettes near me where I can see those gruesome photos ... They gotta be some of the ugliest pictures I've ever seen ... especially the one where smoke is coming out of a hole in someone's throat area. Just hope these photos will stop youngsters from picking up this terrible habit ...

It might be world news, along with the proposed changes to Australian cigarette packaging, which is much more radical and newsworthy than this one. Many countries already have grisly photos.
