Smoking British Style
I ran into a smoker from the UK recently and he pulled out a pack of Marlboro cigarettes. At first, I thought it was a 'joke,' given the size of the warning, however apparently it's legit. Can you believe this? Way to go England.

In fact these horrifying messages and photos are mandatory all over the European Union. It is a hihg-level EU directive and it has to be applied in all countries. Here in spain the most usual one is "El tabaco puede matar" (Tobacco can kill you). I am not a smoker but I think smokers are really under high emotional stress just by entering a tobacconist's!

I think it is important for the habitual smoker to make serious efforts to quit it is early as possible, because it shortens life.
