The effectiveness of advertising bans in reducing tobacco use and 'denormalising' tobacco products are much more plausible reasons for tobacco industry opposition. Advertising bans lead to dramatic declines in the awareness of tobacco industry promotional activities. 22 More importantly, regulating advertising and promotion can reduce both the prevalence and initiation of smoking. Based on an analysis of tobacco use before and after the introduction of advertising bans in numerous countries, it is estimated that comprehensive advertising bans reduce smoking initiation by an average of 6% and smoking prevalence by an average of 4%. A partial ban is likely to only reduce prevalence and initiation by 2%. 6
Smoking during pregnancy can cause adverse health effects in both the woman and the fetus. The 2008 US Guideline determined that "person-to-person psychosocial interventions" (typically including "intensive counseling") increased abstinence rates in pregnant women who smoke to %, compared with % in usual care.  : 165–167 Mothers who smoke during pregnancy have a greater tendency towards premature births. Their babies are often underdeveloped, have smaller organs, and weigh much less compared with the normal baby. In addition, these babies have worse immune systems, making them more susceptible to many diseases in early childhood, such as middle ear inflammations and asthmatic bronchitis which can bring about a lot of agony and suffering. As well, there is a high chance that they will become smokers themselves when grown up. A systematic review showed that psychosocial interventions help woman stop smoking in late pregnancy and can reduce the incidence of low birthweight infants.
