    Wow, if this doesn’t wake smokers up then i don’t know what will.

    • +Santricia Jones As a non-smoker I agree, but both of my parents smoke and
      this sort of advertising does nothing to help them. In fact, it has a
      negative effect because it hardens their defenses against the media. My
      grandfather passed from lung cancer after smoking most of his life. I’m
      sorry for your loss.

    • +dandymcgee Thank you. My apologies for your loss as well.

    • +Santricia Jones The problem is that smokers don't usually believe
      these 'ads'. They will do everything to defend themselves and will
      always find an excuse. Nicotine addiction can be a dagerous thing.. I’d
      rather be dead than live the life of this woman.

    • +Santricia Jones meth will

    • This is funny

  2. What happens to her throat? I’m not trying to be rude at all, I’m just
    curious 😟

    • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

      +Angi 123 After years of smoking, Terrie was diagnosed with throat cancer.
      When Terrie had surgery for her cancer, her voice box was removed. Some
      people who have this surgery have an artificial voice box (or voice
      prosthesis) in order to speak. They can push air from their lungs through
      the implant device so they can create sound for speech. The hole in
      Terrie’s neck (also called a stoma) had to be covered so that the air went
      through her voice box and not out of her stoma. The hands-free device
      closed the stoma so Terrie could speak without having to use her hands to
      cover her stoma.

    • Tracheotomy m8, that’s what happens

    • +Mod And Bad had*, Terri died.

    • +Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) oh.i thought it was just
      there because she was smoking.not to be rude

    • she smoked and got cancer

  3. honestly I’m not gonna feel bad its her fault she smoked in the first
    place…..

  4. Galactic Dreamer

    I saw this on a vine and now i feel terrible

  5. THEY’RE SELLING CHOCOLATE??

  6. Have you ever noticed how all the smokers turn away when this PSA comes on?
    Denial, is mind boggling

    • +Mala Suerte Yes!….I cringe every time, yet it’s the motivation I need at
      the moment, to let smoking go all together….

    • @Brando Rosales good for you, adelante caminante! 😉👍🏽

    • +Mala Suerte When I was a child, I smoked the cigarrette butts (sometimes).
      My granpa was smoking everyday, so I grabbed the cigarrette butts. Now I
      know that cigarrettes are disgusting. At least I’m not addictive. Maybe
      it’s mental.

    • Good luck on quitting smoking, Brando!

    • GoldenDarkGames (Rarity)

      no because personal choice is the only thing that matters in this situation

  7. AIRSOFTguy1234 0

    Im scared guy im 12 i prob smoked 19 cigs am i hoing to get cancer our die
    like 19 in 4 days

  8. lol. this is hysterical! I was falling on my assignment when I saw this.
    how dare they exploit these people for our humor? time for smoke break,
    peeps.

  9. Imagine her ordering food at a drive thru

  10. ALLAHU AKBAR

  11. “they’re selling chocolates?”

  12. Majestik Centeno

    This is why I don’t even think about smoking.

  13. jessenia vazquez

    i feel so bad for her 😭😭

  14. Not gonna lie, this one scares me.

  15. I cringed so hard

  16. I had an Uncle die of Larynx Cancer at age 44 and he never smoked. What is
    the explanation behind that? Please don’t give me this Second hand smoke
    theory BS. AS it was determined to be caused by radiation treatment for a
    previous cancer he once had at 17. It’s just too easy to blame tobacco for
    everything now a days. What is society going to do once it banishes
    tobacco and people are still dying in large numbers from cancers?

  17. Bella Dancerella

    no one should smoke because it can happen 2 u

    • Bella Dancerella

      +Musically Oblivious Scene Kid That’s Highly Pretentious And Ignorant I
      don’t talk to cuess girls who totally act like bad sailor in the war.
      #manner

  18. Every smoker I know turns these Comercials. It’s not making any of them
    want to stop. I can see this keeping people from starting but not make
    someone quit.

  19. I’ll never touch another cigarette again!

  20. And the ironic thing about this is that this ad is featured in mac
    demarco’s ode to viceroy music video, viceroy is a cigarette brand and mac
    himself is a big smoker LOLOLOL
