I just feel sorry for the shop keeper who has to sell cancer sticks. "Yeah that packet, yeah the green one"

I got my Nonna to quit smoking when I was three. I learned that they can kill you, and it really upset me. The next time I saw her take her cigarette pack, I started crying "Nonna, please don't smoke the stinky sticks! (That's what I called them, ha) I DON'T WANT YOU TO DIE!" She couldn't look at it again without thinking of my face and feeling super guilty. I still hate them to this day. They smell terrible, and because of some past issues, the smell alone makes me nervous. Glad my Nonna was able to quit her habit! Don't know what I'd do without her.

Let’s don’t forget we could just make it illegal to make cigarettes and shut it all down. But for some reason lobbyists and politicians don’t seem to want to do that? Hum... there maybe a bigger problem here. Can large powerful companies that kill millions of people buy our elected politicians? Why yes... yes they can... #stoptheelectedfromkillingus

Are we sure it was getting rid of mascots that smoking has decreased or is it because people are more educated about it and it isn't advertised as widely as alcohol?

wait, the nightmare fuel pictures on cigarette packages isn't a thing in the states? those have been a thing here in Canada as far back as I can remember (granted I'm only 20, so maybe not that long, but still.). I think some of them are burned into my mind for good.

If people want to smoke let em smoke just because you don't like it doesn't mean everyone who smokes has to quit because of you

John Oliver should be broadcast nationwide on every channel. Everyone needs to see his show. He has provided so much information that I never would have gotten otherwise.

Here's a fact I bet you did not know. Q:What is America's number1 killer? A: Hospital error. Yes your hospital and the idiots that work there kill more people than cancer, heart disease, aids and guns combined. So the people putting out these adds? Your more likely to die from their hands than smoking 3 packs a day. .
Rockyblack smith (13 days ago)
And smoking three packs a day is a surefire way to drive yourself into their arms. Unless you can remove cancer from your lungs by yourself.

Joseph Munoz (18 days ago)
The consensus should be that we don't need bullshit plain packaging because it's more than evident today that smoking can kill. Its drilled into childrens brains at school. Just be your own person and make your own informed decision. Oh wait, we can't do that because people are fucking cry babies.

Hmm. If we encourage third world countries and non whites to use tobacco, then in twenty or thirty years, we would see a decrease in their populations. No wonder the tobacco companies owned by white people, target those third world and non white populations. They support genocide and make money on it.

If anyone wants to know: Phillip Morris LOST the case in an arbitration court and the WTO upheld Australia's right for plain packaging :) They responded by slashing their workforce in Australia by one third, obviously.

If China ever does anything about smoking (probably not since the market is huge) and those companies try to sue, they can have fun

Cigs smell like crap, tax the hell out of them! But leave pipe tobacco alone, it smells great, and is slightly less harmful.

When I went to Germany I decided to buy a book to teach me how to speak passable German. Imagine my surprise when over and over again I had to learn how to say different things about smoking being a no-no. Now that part wasn't shocking. It was the early 90's and by then who didn't know about the dangers of smoking? The shocking part was on my way to buy the book I passed an outdoor cigarette machine that didn't keep minors from buying cigarettes let alone adults. "Nicht rauchen" oder "rauchen verbotten," was one of many phrases in my book about smoking but as I waited for the bus home I couldn't help noticing that machine did quite a bit of business which probably explained why my Berlitz teaching book was trying to get me to tell people they smoked too much. Too bad it didn't tell the people buying the cigarettes.

Went cold turkey. Been a smoker for over 8 years consuming about a pack each day. I'm 29 years old. First 2 weeks have been tough with all the shit you experience from nicotine withdrawal. No patches, gums, or vaping - just lots of Fisherman's Friend lozenges to keep my mouth busy, and sheer willpower of wanting to turn my life around (plus constantly reminding myself of my mortality). I'm now on my 38th day. I rarely crave for a stick. I breathe a lot easier now and I no longer experience that annoying smoker's cough. To everyone out there who plans to quit or is in the process of quitting: hang in there. It ain't easy, but it's fucking worth it.

Not to mention that Aus. taxes on cigarettes climb annually, 25g of Roll Your Own tobacco is averaging $40 here. Due to keep rising. Pack of 20s is verging on $30. It is stopping people starting, but for lifelong smokers, often those of the working class, not so much. Deeming the broke, broker. And the Taxman richer. Because they've realised they can raise the price as they please, change the packaging, act like they're taking initiative, 'caring' for its people, when actually its a cash grab from the pockets of some of the poorest demographics in Australia.

In 2018, there is over 2000, carcinogens in each cigarette. An American cigarette, Has 37% real tobacco in it! That means, that 63% of a cigarette, are fillers! So, now ppl smoke filler and a little, real tobacco. In the 60's, there was 162 carcinogens in each cigarette.

I smoke weed a lot because it's legal and my older bother who's 21 buys it all the time, and he lets me smoke it because of my ADHD but is it bad for you? Like as bad as ciggerattes
Pēteris Krišjānis (1 month ago)
Weed have less of carcinogens, and is less terrible that way. In nutshell, in moderate use, it is way less dangerous than cigarette. Although being high is something one should take into account and act accordingly (same with booze).

The disturbing thing about tobacco is that the American first nations use it sparingly in religious ceremonies as part of their beliefs. They do not use it constantly as other nations seem to do. There exists a similar disastrously dysfunctional relationship with some ethnic groups and alcohol which accounts for a total prohibition of alcohol in some parts of the world. The colony of Virginia was founded on the basis of cultivating tobacco, it was considered valuable enough and light enough to be transported by ships to Europe. Part of the reason for its high value was its addictiveness among the consuming public. The problem in the future will be the need for nation states to regulate and supervise the growing and sale of tobacco products in order to prevent illegal and underground sales of tobacco as conscientious investors and corporations move out of the tobacco trade in the face of increasing opposition and legal costs. The last time outright prohibition on a drug was tried resulted in a huge increase in power and money for illegal operators and a substantial loss of life and well being for millions of people. The prohibition of alcohol in the US in the '20's and '30's of the last century.

I am so allergic to the cigarette smoke that my hubby smokes out side. Aldo it is so addictive that he just can't stop. He has tried, but it is so hard. I feel so bad for him because I know he wants to quite. My tip to everyone, just don't start. It is so bad for yours and can cause issues to others around you.

Interesting facts about tobacco: 1/Indonesia is 90% Islamic. Women are not allowed to smoke tobacco or drink Alcohol. The Men do both. If Indonesian women are caught doing either, they are beaten, but when a man is caught doing it, everyone looks the other way (so much for a beautiful religion). In Indonesia a packet of Cigarettes costs one dollar. If you give an Indonesian man money to help his family, he spends it on himself. Never give a Muslim male cash of any kind. 2/Currently a packet of Cigarettes in Aussie is around $40. 3/New Zealand will be completely smoke free by 2020. 4/ Marlborough Cigarettes were originally a brand for women but because the brand couldn't generate enough sales, they decided to market it for men. The rest is history. Which I think is hilarious.

In Australia, smokers didn't and don't give a crap about the plain packs. It's extreme increases in taxation that meant low income people couldn't afford cigarettes that reduced our smoking rate.

Vaping is a big reason that smoking is at an all-time low! Vaping is at least 95% safer than smoking!

Is it just me or did he make more mistakes in his speech and speech patterns than any other segment that he's done? Love his show, so I watch all his segments and it was weird to see/hear him make that many.
