Will enlarged pictorial warnings reduce tobacco consumption

first_imgBut this is still not enough to reduce the consumption rate among the majority of habitual smokers, say stakeholders and experts.The Supreme Court recently ordered cigarette producers to comply with the health ministry’s new regulation mandating an increase in the size of the pictorial warning to 85 percent of the front and back panels of cigarette packets.However, many regular smokers who don’t buy full packets admitted that they are unaware about the order. “I have not seen the enlarged warnings as I don’t buy packets, but one or two cigarettes at a time,” said Vikash Shaw, who smokes about eight cigarettes a day. Terming the enlarged warnings as “futile”, Babu Hazra, a daily wage labourer, said: “What matters to me is only the sudden price rise.” Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Leading cigarette producer ITC has retained the prices of most of its brands but reduced the stick sizes to overcome the 10-15 percent hike in tobacco taxes that was announced in this year’s union budget.Serviceman, Amitava Bhatacharya said although initially the enlarged warning looked scary, it could not stop him from smoking. “When I first saw that big warning image, I was indeed terrified. But eventually I surrendered to my addiction,” said Bhattacharya.

But still they consumed cigarette at their own will. The same is happening now too.” On the other hand, doctors and economists are giving a thumbs up to the new regulations. With almost one million people dying due to direct and passive smoking in India, medico S.K. Paira believed quitting tobacco is comparatively easier than other addictions.“Smoking creates mental dependency while alcohol and drugs create physical dependency in which withdrawal symptoms are fatal. Mental determination is the best way to give up smoking,” said Paira.Admitting that the overpowering craving for tobacco makes regular smokers overlook health warnings, psychiatrist Manoj Sharma felt that the enlarged pictorial warning has to be complemented with grass-root level awareness for reducing tobacco consumption. “Education at the school level is necessary for creating awareness about the ill-effects of smoking. Reducing tobacco consumption depends on the interplay of these two factors,” said Sharma.Economist Santanu Mitra said: “The enlarged warning may serve as a discouraging factor for first time smokers and those who are not regular or habituated smokers.” Papiya Sen, an anti-tobacco activist, accepting the fact that the message of the perils of smoking is not reaching out to the larger public who smoke beedis since there is no compulsion to cover 85 per cent of the beedi packets with pictorial warning, said: “We have to take one step at a time. I am sure sooner or later we will succeed in making the beedi companies print enlarged warnings too.”Statistics have shown that beedis account for 48 per cent of India’s tobacco consumption.last_img read more
