Description:
Responding to the 1985 Surgeon General's report on smoking and occupational exposure, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services established a smoke-free environment in its facilities in 1987, affecting 120,000 employees nationwide. One year later, the American Lung Association established a multi-component program called TUFFS (Team Up for Freedom from Smoking) in order to help businesses create and implement smoking policies in the workplace. As part of the TUFFS program, this poster was part of a series of workplace advertisements designed to promote cooperative anti-smoking measures in a lighthearted and good-natured manner. By using animation, these posters use humor and exaggerated depictions of workplace encounters to promote behavioral change. This image encourages smoking cessation with its clever headline --"Everyone loves a quitter"-- and the embellished celebration of an ex-smoker, hailed by his co-workers.
