One of two posters, with an anti-smoking message, featuring two images of female lips with smoke emerging from one and the message 'Kiss my lips…Kiss my ashtray', produced by the Health Education Authority, England, c.1987-1995

The Health Education Authority hoped to highlight the anti-social nature of smoking with the slogan: 'Kiss my lips, Kiss my ashtray'. This campaign was aimed at younger smokers. It suggested their habit was a turn-off for the opposite sex. Smoking causes diseases such as lung cancer, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and heart disease. An estimated six million people in Britain died from tobacco-related diseases between 1950 and 2000.
