Do you Smoke???
Do you want to stop smoking???
Well, the govenment comes up with another feeble and tentative idea in their campaign against tobacco consumption in india. .Read this.
I personally feel that putting up scary pictures like tobacco related diseases in the cigarette packets is totally absurd and shows their careless approach towards smoking. These politicians sitting in its haunches take years to come up with some idea and that too a foolish one . i dont understand the motive behind it.It seems like the old technique parents use to refrain children from doing something by scaring them.
I think the people (including smokers) nowadays are very much aware of the harmfull affects of smoking and inspite of that they smoke and i can hardly think of anyone quiting smoking by looking at those scary yet true pictures.The govenment has justified its idea by gicving an example where the consumption of tobacco has decreased by 3 percent .Well, they did another mistake by comparing cannada with india where most of tobacco sonsumption community lives in villages. Well, i dont think the idea will work in villages too where people might be ignorant of the effects of tobacco , i dont think they use branded cigarettes .The only means of consuming tobacco for them is raw tobacco and bidi’s .I dont think the government can manage to print those scary pictures in those home made tobacco packets. So what is the need of such a queer and unconvincing idea???
The warning message in ciggrete packets had been implemented long back. i dont thing anyone even bothers seeing that and even those who manage to look at it, ignore it.i dont thing there has been any decrease in its consumption ,perhaps , it has only increased. The consumption of tobacco among youngsters is mainly due to the fact that they think it as a fashion statement and by the time they realize that its harmful for them they are already addicted to it. Studied in college i personally known some guys who started smoking as an enjoyment and to flaunt their maturity but now are finding hard time quiting it even after its harmfull effects are known to them .
Inspite of implementing these absurd and good for nothing ideas wouldn’t it be wise to establish more rehabilitation centres and conducting more seminars about smoking in schools. I also dont understand why the government doesn’t impose a BAN on tobacco related products.Just for the sake of commission from the product manufacturers, the group of people here who call themselves government ,risk the whole countries population by allowing them to sell their products.
I seriously dont know whether to laugh at the foolish and feeble idea they are going to implement or to feel happy as atlast something is being done to control tobacco consumption in india.
