Anti-smoking ads
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

I agree with Bruce Willden in "Raspy voice" (Forum, Oct. 31). There comes a time when offensive anti-smoking TV ads lose their meaning and are no longer effective.

This particular ad with "that poor sick woman with the raspy voice" is offensive to me and, I assume, to many other smokers and non-smokers, and I'm tired of seeing it on TV. I don't understand why those ads about the smoker with throat cancer continue to air.

With these ads running over and over, someone must be making a lot of money.
