Tips from Former Smokers
In March 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched the first-ever paid national tobacco education campaign — Tips From Former Smokers (Tips). Tips encouraged people to quit smoking by highlighting the toll that smoking-related illnesses take on smokers and their loved ones. The hard-hitting ads showed people living with the real and painful consequences of smoking.
CDC is building on the success of the Tips campaign by launching a new round of advertisements in April 2013 to continue to raise awareness of the negative health effects caused by smoking, encourage smokers to quit, and encourage nonsmokers to protect themselves and their families from exposure to secondhand smoke.
