What drives us to smoke: Marketing the cigarette: from ads to addiction
(Presentation for the general public)
This presentation uses ads displayed in the exhibit: Not a Cough in a
CarloadImages from the Tobacco Industry Campaign to Hide the Hazards of Smoking (Stanford University). These actual early ads, dating from the 1930's-1950's, were created with great artistic and strategic marketing skill. The presentation shows how the ads reassure smokers concerned about their health. It also analyzes how the reasons offered for smoking in the ads are later incorporated as rationalizations and cognitive beliefs which interfere with quitting. These ads help illuminate the widespread acceptance of smoking and help explain the cultural mythology which continues to surround addiction to tobacco.
