Cigarette Commercials on TV

In the United States, these were banned in 1971. It is my belief that this was one of the factors to make my native country one of the lowest per capita of tobacco users in the world, if not NUMBER ONE.

No one in this part of the world (I live in the Philippines) believes that this is so, since they see it in the movies. Having worked with movie actors on several projects let me put it to you this way:

They will not smoke in the movies unless the script calls for it... Smoking is such an addictive practice that the actors cannot just stop. It's a pitiful web.

The LoyalTubist has been smoke free since 1977.
