Health Promotion Strategies For Smoking Cessation

This poster from the Irish Cancer Society illustrates the widespread popularity of using celebrity spokespersons in anti-smoking campaigns. Making the most of a multi-colored graphic layout featuring ten popular Irish musicians, the poster speaks directly to the viewer, imploring them to say, "I don't smoke," and reassuring them that in so doing they will remain in the fashionable "good company" of others. While utilizing a positive promotional approach similar to the Peggy Fleming poster above, the message at the bottom of the poster, in smaller print, is more aggressive: "Smoking is dangerous and disgusting. Stop it now!"

The CTP was established by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act), which was signed into law by President Barack Obama on June 22, 2009. Its mission is to protect Americans from tobacco-related death and disease by regulating the manufacture, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products, and by educating the public, especially young people, about tobacco products and the dangers their use poses to themselves and others.

Cigarettes in Australia are among the most expensive in the world. Research on the impact of price increases on prevalence has generally found higher responsiveness to price among lower socio-economic groups., Among people who were still smoking at the end of the first phase of the National Tobacco Campaign in Australia (May 1997 to November 1999), the prevalence of smoking decreased more among blue than white collar groups during the second phase of the campaign (November 1999 to November 2002) when prices of tobacco products increased significantly. Smoking declined by 6.1% in blue collar groups and increased by 0.9% in white collar groups.26 An analysis of smoking prevalence in response to changes in cigarette prices in Australia between 1991 and 2006 similarly found a strong association between price increases on cigarettes and declines in prevalence, which was more pronounced in lower-income groups. One Australian dollar increase in cigarette price was associated with declines of 2.6%, 0.3% and 0.2% in the prevalence of smoking in low, medium, and high-income groups, respectively. Recent Victorian research also suggests that an accelerated decrease in the prevalence of regular smoking among low SES people may be attributable to increases to tobacco taxation (as well as increased funding for social marketing campaigns).

A recent systematic review examined articles quantitatively assessing the relationship between media exposure and substance use behaviour (including tobacco, alcohol and illicit drug use) among children and adolescents from 1980 to January 2008. 'Media' covered television, cinema, the Internet, electronic/video games, magazines and music (advertising was excluded). The review identified 42 studies, most based on television or film media, including 24 which examined tobacco use. The majority (88%) of the 24 studies (including 10 longitudinal studies) examining tobacco use reported a statistically significant relationship between increased media exposure and an increase in child and adolescent smoking behaviour (typically ever having tried smoking or age of uptake). Reviewers noted that the evidence supporting the relationship between media and tobacco use was stronger than that for alcohol and illicit drug use.
