Can I Bum a Fag?

A series of anti-smoking advertisements began this summer to encourage Brits to give up cigarettes because they make men impotent and women ugly.

The campaign was designed to target young people's fears about sexual attractiveness - an area officials say is more effective than highlighting general health concerns.

One ad uses a burning cigarette end between two inverted fingers with the strapline "Does smoking make you hard? Not if it means you can't get it up."

Another targets women, saying that smoking causes "cat's bum mouth".

A poll conducted among men by phone entertainment firm Lab suggests that smoking women are the biggest turn off for men.

Out of 1000 men questioned aged between 16 and 24, half said that women puffing turn them off.

They ranked it above flirting, breaking wind or swearing. But just 14 per cent of girls were turned off by smoking. More than a third said men's flirting was the biggest no-no.

Right. We’ll make an exception for you Bet luv.

It's funny how Corrie doesn't make smoking look cool. It just looks like people with a bad habit/addiction. You know, like real life.

Except for Bette Lynch. Everyone should smoke with cigarette holders.

Flirting? What? When is flirting a bad a thing?

What kind of flirting are we talking about?

Cause it's always worked for me....but maybe everyone's been humouring me.
