"Kitten" poses in patches to aid quit smoking effort
Pop singer Natasha Hamilton, formerly of the Atomic Kittens, has posed wearing only nicotine patches for a poster to aid the quit-smoking effort in the U.K.
She recreated the poster from the movie American Beauty with a quantity of patches for the U.K. drugstore chain Boots.
Her costume represents the million smokers Boots hope to help kick the habit in their Change One Thing campaign.
They will provide expert advice in their shops and send a "battle bus" around the country.
As Boots launched the drive, a survey found kids want their parents to kick the habit.
The poll on behalf of charity ChildLine found giving up smoking was children's favorite New Year resolution for their parents. Source. Another.
