Zou hopes that her minuscule drawings, sketched on these cancer sticks, will lure her man away from the evils of cigarette-smoking.
According to CCTV News, the drawings are paired with text that translates to: “‘Is this kid cute? Do you have the heart to burn him?' ‘Little cubs fear smoke, do you wanna protect them?’”
If cute animals can’t prevent Ran from lighting one up, nothing will.
Zou said that her hubby is an overworked salesman and his stressful job is assumedly the reason why he chain-smokes. Apparently, she has also made multiple attempts to stop Ran from smoking, but he just can’t seem to kick the habit. However, after receiving the box of ciggs, Ran was at least inspired by the lengths his wife went to in order to help him quit.
"I see these pictures and text, I'm really touched. If I don't quit, I'll be letting my wife down," he told China News.
A study from the World Health Organization (WHO) showed that China is the number one country addicted to nicotine, with over 300 million smokers. Moreover, a new Beijing law slated for June 6 will ticket folks from that region who smoke indoors and on public transportation—no word yet on whether it will trickle into other Chinese cities.
