Why Do Movie Characters Smoke?

You may have not noticed it but there are an increasing number of films made where leading characters smoke. That’s right they light up more than ever before. With the increasing cost of making a film around $100 million, Hollywood is looking to outside finances to cover the bill. Who better than the big tobacco companies. So instead of an entertaining film with social value what you are really getting is a big budget cigarette commercial.

According to a recent report which stated “Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate that tobacco use remains the leading preventable cause of death in the United States, causing approximately 440,000 premature deaths each year and resulting in an annual cost of more than $75 billion in direct medical costs.” What really disturbs me most is how Hollywood is secreting pushing this agenda.  https://www.ticketstodo.com/activity/motiongate-tickets What agenda is that? Drug distribution of course. In fact Nicotine, the main ingredient in cigarettes, is one of the most heavily used addictive drugs in the United States. Even more addictive than crack cocaine! It is no secret then that Hollywood is becoming one of the leading drug pushers in the world! If what I am saying sounds absurd then do your research. You simply cannot justify a character in a film lighting up in every other scene. Rent Johnny Depp’s The Ninth Gate and just count how many times he lights a cigarette. Or Rent Nicolas Cage’s Matchstick Men and you’ll see that practically every scene has him smoking a cigarette. It is well documented how films can influence the subsconious mind. And the most powerful way to do this is through the use of subliminal images. In others words, cigarette ads disguised as major motion pictures.

This is nothing new as Hollywood has been pushing drug use for years. However, now they have stepped up their efforts because they need the big tobacco companies’ money to finance the ever increasing out of control budgets. And of course some but not all, well-known stars are going along with this clandestine operation. Think about it. If you are in a $100 million dollar film rested assured your piece of that pie is going to be substantial. And if I told you that all you had to do is light up every other scene you would have no problem. Never mind the fact that you are helping to promote and distribute a product that is killing millions of people globally. This is where it stops being art and starts becoming something more sinister. Unfortunately, I don’t have enough space to go over the actual subliminal techniques they use to get you addicted to cigarettes but here are just a few:
