"The new packaging is intended to protect people from the harmful effects of smoking," said Erica Jefferson, FDA spokesperson. "Killing active and potential smokers will save lives, increase life expectancy, and lower medical costs."
Addicted smokers are unlikely to ever become recreational smokers, as much as they wish they could. The wish to "just have one" is a wish that, for most addicts who successfully quit their drug, must remain unfulfilled.
The idea behind the new cigarette warnings is that if people really knew what cigarettes can do to them, they would not smoke. Unfortunately, there is good reason to believe that these warnings will not have the desired effect.
