ATLANTA (WAOK) – A visually shocking anti-smoking campaign begins Monday. The CDC project features a 52-year-old woman who lost her voice to tobacco use, and now communicates with the help of a device used in conjunction with a hole in her throat. Terrie Hall says she began smoking while 17 and now is without a larynx. Hall has appeared in anti-smoking ads before, and says in this one that she can’t recall her own voice. The spot shows the electric device moving through the neck hole when she speaks.
