Do people still discourage their kids from smoking by saying "it’ll stunt your growth"? Because I don’t think it’ll work. For one thing, I know a guy who smokes and is about nine feet tall. (Hi Andrew). No, I think honesty is the best policy. "It’ll give you cancer, son", I’ll say. "It’ll give you gangrene, a horrible cough, bad breath, a drug addiction and a lighter wallet".

That’s one thing I haven’t seen on the warning labels. Yeah sure, you get "Smoking causes heart disease", "Smoking kills", all that. But put "Smoking gives you terrible breath" and you might actually dissuade people.
