Hi. Are you struggling with a nicotine addiction or just sharing some research?

In the first article you posted, there is a sentence, "Studies found that the unconscious mind often fails to register the negative part of the message, meaning these campaigns could in fact encourage the very behaviour that they wish to deter."

I think the author meant "subconsious mind". :- )

Both actually. I happened to come across that piece the first day after I decided I'm going to quit. I couldn't find our old random article thread so started this new one.

I hope that's what the author meant. Big mistake.
