From Marketingvox.com, a new study gives us the proof:
“Advertising convinces kids to try smoking while promotional pricecuts make the bad new habits stick. The study suggests that if in-store ads were dropped, an 11 percent decrease would result in youth who try smoking. Thereafter, discouraging pricecuts would decrease habitual smokers by 13 percent.”
You caught my sarcasm in this post, right?
