    Thata a sure way to get attention ! Our people just love Adhiradi offers ans will not miss the message.
    by the way here's a definition from "The Devil'd Dictionary" :

    " Cigarette : a stick with fire on one end and an idiot on the other "

    Yes, offer will surely catch the eye of the people. Even better word is - FREE.
    It really is a good slogan.

    very catchy and true..

    Thanks Satya for posting this..
    Should be displayed prominently in all clinics and hospitals and most importantly in college premises I guess..hope it brings a change in addicts and checks others from getting into the habit of smoking
    Vidyasarada's quote is so true and apt
    regards

    That was a good one Sathya!

    Dear Sathya, that was a really good one and a powerful eye-opener. I remember to have read this in some book where a boy is asked to speak on the advantages of smoking in a debating club.
    He told them the first advantage is that the thief would not dare to enter a smokers house
    And the second major one is that the smoker will not have any problem that comes with ageing.
    When asked to explain he told that since the smoker will be coughing all night the thief will be scared to enter that house.
    Since smoking kills a person early he will not live old enough to ace the problems of ageing.
    How smart!
    regards,
    varalotti
