NewScientist Really Wants You To Quit Smoking

Jason English

Last week, Mangesh posted about whether brain damage could help you quit smoking. If you've been beating yourself senseless but are still lighting up, here's another tactic: looking at horrific pictures of blackened lungs and horribly disfigured feet.

NewScientist reports on a study that determined this method was the most effective at discouraging smoking. Australia has used this approach on cigarette packs themselves. Not surprisingly, traditional warning labels were deemed least effective.

I was going to put up a few examples after the jump, but these pictures go beyond curbing your appetite for nicotine. If you need them, the pictures are here.

If you have a story about another way to quit smoking, spread your wisdom in the comments.
