RCCS Releases Second Anti-Smoking Video

rccs_smokingVIDEO: In an attempt to get smokers to ‘quit while they’re ahead’ this Summer season, RCCS (Rofeh Cholim Cancer Society), released a second anti-smoking campaign video. “Because they think it’s cool. Because they see grown-ups do it. Because their friends do it. Every minute, 4,800 teens will take their first puff on a cigarette. Of those, about 2,000 will go on to be chain smokers”.

Lung Cancer kills more than 170,000 each year, the video says. TLS.

  1. who is this video meant for? teenagers shouldn’t be surfing web. this should either be geared towards parents to explain to their teens or it should be in high schools

  2. As an on-again-off-again smoker for over 25 yrs, I don’t believe most of the data here. Yes smoking is bad but it also supplies a most-needed release to some at times. And, let’s be honest, that’s why bochurim smoke. They need a release after 10 hrs of s’dorim, and there is no kosher one available. So they smoke. Big deal. Most of them stop when they start dating or get married. And, honestly, french fries, potato chips & p’tcha are worse. They should put out a video against kishka !!

  3. Dear “Right”: Du bist a groise shoyta! You’re also mishubad to a flimsy piece of paper farshtupped with chopped up leaves and toxins. No Yid has the right to deliberately, willfully and knowingly harm the body Hakadosh Baruch Hu gave him. It should be safeguarded at all times. Life is precious. Don’t let it go up in smoke!

  4. “right” is right that there should be a campaign against kiska, ptcha ma’arich, greeben v’chol minei mata’amim!!!!

  5. This is a childish video. I have seen hundreds of photos of rebbis and rabanim smoking pipes (lilkes) and cigarettes from the last century. Now we all know that they had ruach hakodesh, so if smoking caused “170,000 deaths per year” they would not have smoked. I personally only smoke cigars (preferably Cuban) and it does bother me that in all these old photos I never see a godol smoking a cigar. Should I be worried? Gotta go, my Montecristo No.4 is waiting.

  6. It’s so ridiculous to claim that smoking isn’t cool. I’m not that old and i remember that when i was a kid I knew smoking was dangerous yet i still thought it was cool.

    you have to come up with a better way to convey your message. Maybe bring all Kids and Teens for a field trip to a cancer ward in a hospital and let them see firs hand how much pain and suffering the cancer patients go through. that might work!! but saying its not cool wont work because that fact is that all kids think smoking is cool.

  7. its a stupid vid it doesnt say anything new and people will stop when they have a want to stop. you cant force someone to stop smoking it has to come on its own.
