Plain Packaging Isn’t Going To Help

The Cancer Research U. K. is of the view that if efficient efforts aren’t made to help people quit smoking and stop influencing the younger generation to follow suit, there are going to be even more smokers in the world soon. As per current statistics, there are as many as 160,000 children taking on to this awful habit.

The government had recently proposed that if the cigarettes are sold in plain packaging rather than their own attractive glossy covers, it might tend to have a negative impact on the sale of the same. The people might tend to get less attracted towards them. The fact is however, that it won’t make too much of a difference. The people don’t actually care what packets their ‘addiction’ comes in, they care about what sort of high it gives them.

This is why it is very essential that campaigns are launched for eradicating cigarettes once and for all. There is need for educating the youngsters how they will destroy their lives completely if they take to smoking. One thing leads to another and smoking might be the first steps to trying things like pot and cocaine in the time to come. This is what makes it all the more essential for efforts to be made for preventing children to indulge in such awful habits.

They need to be made to realize how they are putting themselves to the risk of lung cancer and a number of other breathing disorders.

“The tobacco industry spends a great deal of money on designing cigarettes and their packets so they seem glamorous, appealing, fashionable and attractive in an effort to recruit more customers”, said Jean King, Cancer Research UK’s Director of tobacco control.
