Brief Explanation
The government of Ontario decided they could save tons of lives and health care money if they could get social smokers to quit before they got addicted.Makes sense as over 60% of social smokers eventually become smokers.Strangely, no anti-smoking campaign had ever tackled this key intervention moment. There was just one problem. How do you convince someone to stop doing something they won’t admit they’re even doing? After all, they weren’t smoking. They were 'social' smoking. Our campaign took away their social safe place by using humorous analogies to show how ridiculous using the word 'social' to justify smoking really was.
