Slogans that Encourage You to Quit Smoking

Quit Smoking Slogans

For those looking to quit smoking and find some support and encouragement, the catchy phrases of anti-smoking slogans can help. These short and often witty sayings can give people the boost they need to realize the dangers of smoking and start on the path to giving up their addiction.

We’ll break down some of the most common or most popular phrases and slogans and look at how they can help people to quit smoking.

Be smart, don’t start- This is one of the most common slogans, and it is mostly aimed at kids and teenagers, those most likely to encounter peer pressure. The slogan plays on the notion that intelligent people wouldn’t get sucked into the smoking trap.

You’re a fool if you think smoking is cool- This slogan has a similar angle to the previous one. It also fights peer pressure and tries to stigmatize smoking, which was often depicted as something cool people did in movies from the past decades.

Tar the roads, not your lungs- This one alludes to the sticky toxin known as tar that coats the lungs as people smoke. Equating the substance to the tar used in roads can make some people think twice before sticking a cigarette in their mouth.

Too much smoke will leave you broke- This rhyming slogan goes for the wallet and accentuates how much it costs to smoke. Those who are conscious of how much they are spending may want to stop and think about the costs before they start picking up a cigarette.

You smoke, you die early, you save the government money-  It may be on the lighter side initially, as it does offer an amusing notion of smoking. But the dark side is quickly obvious in this slogan. It wants you to laugh a little before you begin thinking about how smoking can kill.

Tobacco companies kill their best customers- This one is aimed at people who are loyal to a particular tobacco company. It’s basically saying that the tobacco companies don’t care about you. They will never know how loyal you are or how much you are buying; they simply want your patronage for as long as you are alive. And once you start smoking, that lifespan is definitely shortened.

Smoking is glamorous if you like deep wrinkles- In the 50s and 60s, smoking was seen as a glamorous pastime for women, but this image has faded away over the years. It has faded in much the same way as the beauty of those actresses has because of their indulgence in cigarettes. The slogan points out that the glamour of cigarettes is only fleeting, and the damage they do will last forever.

Cough Twice for Philip Morris- This slogan plays off the slogan sometimes seen on bumper stickers that ask you to honk if you like the same things they do. But it brings up a powerful reminder that smoking causes emphysema.

These are just some of the slogans used to raise awareness of the dangers of smoking and to encourage people to quit.

  1. I loved this blog especially this line

    “Tobacco companies kill their best customers”

    If every chain smoker understands this thing then definitely no one would wish to get into such addiction which is ultimately going to end his life in a very short span of time.

    Excellent work done!! Keep providing such informative content!!

  2. My slogan is: ” I look like a monkey with it’s lips on fire!” when I used to light up a cigarette and smoke it. Can you imagine an actual monkey picking up a cigarette and smoking it? I can’t. That is what I refer myself to, because one, I don’t even look like a smoker. LOL!

  3. For many years never wanted to stop smoking. This past weekend, I stayed with a friend whom did not smoke or know I did.

    After reading several clinical studies, I learned the tobacco is out of the system in a short time. I am on the 4th day, forgave myself for trying to think of a stressful reasons to stop and purchase just one pack, or talk myself into becoming ok with failure…again.

    Realize I am not going to lie, cheat, or steal from myself any longer! IT REALLY STINKS … SO DOES SELF DECEPTION … THE MOST WHEN I DID!

    • Hang in there another week you will be ok. Keep putting $8 in the piggy bank everyday, which you spend on a pack and watch it grow. After 30 days buy yourself a gift, this is your reward. After 1 year the piggy bank will explode with all the dollars you have saved instead of spending on these nasty cigarettes.
      I am a former smoker myself.

    • I am , today so sick of being a slave to that damn cigarette. My buddy. My way of being alone and not having conversation, because in this town, I am a closet smoker. I would rather smoke than be engaged. My breathing is changing. I’m 55. I’m actually beautiful, glamorous, but the more I smoke the more it becomes my focus, it’s all I want to do. It’s caught up. I even avoid being close to my husband because I know my breath stinks. No kisses. Bit still didn’t care. Just let me smoke. No more. Something snapped. I really think this is it. Can I now become my potential. Because I do have potential. I’ll keep you posted if you’re interested

  4. I am an ex smoker, I am glad I quit, my house smells better. It been a while but I really do not feel that my food tastes better but definitely my over all health is better. I encourage everyone to quit cigarettes, you will not only feel and look better but you will save a lot of money. On average you will save $2500 a year if you smoke a pack a day.

  5. I always encourage those peoples who are just trying to quit smoking and tobako. This things will only effect u not another.

  6. This is my fourth day of not smoking. I quit for 7 years, then started again 1.5 years ago. So now I’ve kicked the habit. I’m feeling good.

    • Congrats Sarah for your 4th day. I’m on day 2 and smoked for 30 years. Doing the cherry losenge. Feeling really good about it this time around and now I’m kicking this habit as well. On this journey with you and in a few weeks our skins will look brighter, our hair, our nails, on and on the benefits. Good luck.

  7. I’m on my 2nd day of trying to quit. I’m using the gum (even though I hate them) and electric cigarettes and this time round it’s working! After 5 years of excuses and a full pack a day, I’m finally on the road of being free and independent of this poison!
