There is surly nothing better than using graphical demonstration to show both old and young people the bad effects of smoking cigarettes.
Even if you have done your best to show people how bad smoking is; even if you talk fluently, even if you are your explanation of the dangers of smoking is striking, your words won’t have the same effect as using images to show the impact of smoking on the human body. This is not because you cannot do that, but because you ask the listeners to presume something that they have never seen. Similes just are not enough to explain to people how terrible the impairment of smoking on the human body is. The advanced way you can use to make children hate tobacco and smoking as well as encourage adults and teens to stop this awful habit is using pictures and you will see their impact on them.
The bad impact of smoking can best be demonstrated by showing pictures of the harm it does. Let smokers see how the hairy tongue of smokers looks like, and also show them a cancer covered one. There are various posters that either shows a whitened tongue, and after two months it is coated with yellow-green cancer. There is also the poster that displays a young girl smoking, and, as if there were openings in her body, where there are damaged areas due to smoking, such as: stomach, lips, brain, heart, and lungs, all in a cancerous or weakened state. The previously mentioned images are just a sample from many posters that you can use to show your targeted audience the real dangers of smoking.
Images might be obliging, but at the end they are just an example of what tobacco does to the body. There is one product that is more effective: a transparent, plastic jar half filled with cigarette butts, nicotine, and a soup of tar. It displays the disgusting image of the effects of chronic obstructive lung disease, which is considered one of the most horrible bad impacts of smoking that you cannot stand seeing for long. This model shows one year of cigarette smoking at twenty a day. Just after one look at the model, smokers will not ever smoke again and will keep their distance from tobacco.
There is another convincing method that shows the impact of smoking on the smoker’s lungs. There is a small model consisting of a transparent lung, over an ashtray. When you burn a cigarette in the ash tray, you will be able to see how the lung color turns to brown. There is also another model that’s being used in such cases which shows a swine lung that has been discolored to show the effects. Most convincing is the picture that shows a healthy lung, smooth and pink, and the other lung blackened as an effect of tobacco smoking. This will give you the ability to shock your audience, since this model is made basically to compel smokers to hate smoking and stay away from this still cruel killer of all ages.
If you want to let a potential smoker avoid smoking, let him smoke a cigarette made of plastic or something like that. When the person starts inhaling through it, it immediately causes air hunger. And that is what they will be buying, a life of gagging.
All these products are available and can be found on the internet and are advised to be used with your speech and descriptions, in order to increase the amount of shock your are giving to the listener whether an endangered smoker or a potential one. These methods show people what smoking can do; it is capable of causing death.
