Politically incorrect, uncompromising and coherent, crystal-clear in its intellectual and moral stands - and scientifically documented to the extreme - FORCES International has a unique identity and position that make it the most visited site on smoking matters in the world.

Vivid and dynamic, our site is visited by millions of friends and foes each year. As it is also multilingual, it represents an ideal place for advertisement, and it literally offers a world-wide, multi-cultural exposure.

Send your banner, tell us where you want it, and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

Advertisement policy

FORCES International (FORCES, Inc. - hereinafter FORCES) will advertise any legal product and service on its websites and newsletters ? including tobacco-related products and services ? with the following exceptions:

  • Smoking cessation services and devices.
  • Pharmaceutical promotion.
  • Quit-smoking/antismoking ads, shows and programs of any nature that negatively depict smokers, fat people, drinkers or any other free lifestyle choice.
  • Antismoking, anti-alcohol, food control ? and any other prohibition-oriented product, service and/or organization advocating them directly or indirectly.
  • Products and services related to sex and pornography.
  • Products and services related in any way to racism, sexism and/or other forms of social discrimination and exploitation.

FORCES also reserves to refuse what else, in FORCES? indisputable judgement, is considered damaging to human dignity and personal choice.

Finally, would FORCES become aware of discriminating policies implemented against smoking employees by patrons that are already advertising on its publications (example: firing of smokers who smoke in their own time), or would FORCES discover that those patrons finance, support or facilitate antitobacco, FORCES reserves to terminate the advertisement of the product(s) and/or service(s) in question, forfeiting the balance of the advertising period.
