I find some people respond more strongly to a visual representation of something as opposed to a verbal or written variation. In this image I wanted to create a simple picture of why one may want to give up smoking by using the reflection of the smoking woman to create her opposite the non-smoker.

Someone also mentioned to me that it reminded them of the saying “wake up and smell the roses”, as it’s your choice if you really want to quit!
Anyway, that’s my take on this week’s challenge, plus I have included some other great ideas below:
