The French League Against Cancer argues that this smoking exposure "glamorises smoking" and is calling for new measures to cut down the amount shown in movies.

Stepbac® supports this call.  As we ouline in our book “"Stepbac® from Smoking," movies play a major role in persuading teens that smoking is cool and reinforces the myth, that smoking helps calm nerves or help solve problems in difficult situations..

All these myths have been busted by science years ago and you can read all about that in our book.

Smoking is totally not cool and lighting up does not help to solve any problems. If you have a problem then smoking is just another problems, not a solution to existing problems.
At Stepbac, we support a ban smoking in all TV and movies, even in many historical productions. Many people smoked in the past. It's a historical fact. 

Some might say, but Churchill smoked cigars and so cigar smoking should be a part of a movie about him.

Well, Churchill probably visited the toilet every day too but we don't see that in Churchill movies. The question is , was Churchill's smoking habit relevant to decisions he made, that changed the course of the war?

Smoking did not make Churchill wiser or more  interesting. That he often held a cigar means nothing. He often wore a hat or a waistcoat. Did that change his character?

Sorry, but smoking has had its day and now deserves to be removed from all media. Smoking is a "con" from start to finish. A mere trick but one that is costing lives every daycine.
