Many anti-smoking campaigns are illustrated with the dark things associated with the smoking addiction. Despite the golden rule of behavior change communication which is a positive vision for the future.
This new campaign from the Wyoming Quit Tobacco Program made by Agency Sukle is different. They use that positive approach with the idea that when you quit smoking you can do anything.
Mike Sukle: “We found that while the CDC claims incredible success with their Tips from Smokers campaign, which features people with stomas and lung cancer, many smokers are completely turned away by them. In fact, if you really break down the numbers from the campaign, the results are not as impressive as they tout.”
“So for the last couple of years we have taken a different approach in Wyoming. Previous to this campaign we did a campaign featuring Free Patches, Gum, etc. That campaign was very successful. While the campaign ran, calls to the QuitLine were up 47% and 181%. And if you compare the performance with other states, they were either flat or down during that same time period.”
