Avatar's Strong Anti-Smoking Message

I haven't heard much about in it the news, but Avatar has one of the strongest Anti-Smoking messages I have seen in a long time.

First there is the MPAA Rating warning:

Avatar is rated PG-13 for intense epic battle sequences and warfare, sensuality, language and some smoking.

And then what happens in the movie.

Really, they couldn't have made it any clearer:

You smoke, you die.

Well when your cigarette is as long and pointy as a spear, as it is in your picture, smoking it might have uncomfortable and painful consequences.
