Corpses, cancer patients and diseased lungs are among the images the federal government plans for larger, graphic warning labels that would take up half of each pack of cigarettes sold in the United States
Do you think it will help?

Will you quit smoking?

For me, until I hurt in my lungs, I cared nothing about quiting.

It has been 9 years January since I smoked a cigarette....I still have the urge to smoke

If by now people do not know that smoking cigarettes could be bad for your health, well, then there is just no help for you.

Let people smoke. It keeps Tobacco farmers like us in business.

Raising taxes on them has shown to help cut down use, and is especially effective from keeping teenagers from starting.

However, I don't like paying $45 a carton any more than the next smoker.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.
