Alternative cigarette packages hit shelves in Turkey

Nicotine addicts intimidated by the warnings and unsightly pictures on cigarette packages have new options available to them.

The warning packages, produced due to government rules and regulations, are meant to deter consumers from smoking. Most of the pictures on cigarette packages belong to unhealthy people who claim they lost their health because of their addiction to cigarettes. The visual warnings, however, have allegedly caused problems, according to smokers.

In response to the unsightly pictures, some people have taken to repacking their smokes in nostalgic boxes. Others prefer to buy packages produced by a smart entrepreneur that show pictures of flowers or beautiful scenes. These “colorful” packages can be found in a variety of supermarkets and stationary shops. They start from 1 Turkish Lira.

Associations that are against smoking are reportedly objecting to using alternative packages regarding the statistics that show a decrease in the number of addicted smokers after the warning pictures were put on the packages.
