    What about people who are over 18, they might start smoking too, they should just ban all films with smoking in. That is clearly the answer. Stupid though, I'm sure people drink in films for under 18's?!

    I don't even think that seeing someone smoke in a movie makes you want to smoke .. and if this would be the case , this could also happen when you're older then 18 ..

    makes sense in all fairness

    i mean u wudn't have graphic sex scenes in a 12 & i doubt there's much alcoholism in a U

    but this has been going for a while, look closley at the cover of Abbey Road by the Beatles next time ur in HMV and u'll see they've airbrushed the fag out 1 of their hands & the picture of Brunel outside Brunel Uni has had to be changed coz he's got a cigar in it!!

    Smoking can't be banned at the moment, but the government can ban every other fasset around it until its so hard that it isnt worth the effort.
