How  this book works<br />
Once upon a time, 50% of Americans smoked<br />
No one thought it was a big deal <br />
But the tobacco Companies did!<br />
They even put Cigarettes on the couch<br />
Philip Morris used it to develop Marlboro<br />
They discovered this crest – and the words:<br />Veni. Vidi. Vici.    I came. I saw. I conquered.<br />
Marlboro was a kind of medal<br />
Boys everywhere want to prove themselves<br />Boys everywhere want to prove themselves<br />
Smoking is what teens seek out for initiation<br />
Marlboro is the classic coming-of-age symbol<br />
Marlboro is the initiation brand of 70% of <br />male teens because of what it stands for<br />
=<br />This is what Marlboro stands for  -<br />-  every brand has its own meaning<br />
=<br />Something smokers didn’t realize <br />at the time  they bonded <br />
It represents an unconscious deal they <br />made at their coming-of-age moment <br />
A young person’s bond with their idea of adulthood<br />
Something they’ll forget when they grow up<br />
Unlike food or drink – or even drugs –<br />there is no obvious rationale for smoking<br />
It is more like a belief system – supported by addiction<br />
When they try to quit 10, 20 or 30 years later,<br />they are unaware of this psychic bond<br />
So here’s where this book helps<br />
It tells you what the brands do and why<br />
Once you understand what they mean to you<br />
And you’re ready to quit<br />
This takes the magic out of smoking –<br />Bringing it from the sublime….<br />
To the ridiculous!<br />
There is just no going back!<br />
You’ll walk a mile from your Camel…<br />
You are no longer seduced!<br />
