The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention held a news conference in Atlanta on Tuesday to unveil the latest installment of its powerful "Tips From Former Smokers" campaign.
The national tobacco education campaign features real people living with the harsh consequences of smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke. It first launched in March of 2012.
The new ads focus on conditions that have not been featured in previous ads, including severe gum disease, lung cancer, smoking during pregnancy and the health effects of smoking when HIV positive.
The ads will run for nine weeks on television, radio, billboards, online and in theaters, magazines, and newspapers starting on July 7.
