Fiona McCallum is urging people to sign a petition in support of Cancer Research UK's 'The Answer is Plain' campaign, which calls for all branding to be removed from tobacco packaging.
As mum to Isobel, 14 and William, 17, home carer Fiona, from Knightswood, Glasgow wants to do everything she can to protect children from the allure of fancy cigarette packets. She also backed the Evening Times Clear The Air Campaign which aims to highlight the risks of Scotland's biggest killer and help you quit smoking for good.
She said: "The array of packaging young people are confronted with today is frightening, from limited editions, to patterned cigarettes and packs shaped like perfume bottles. Before they even look at one, it's packaging that attracts them.
"In the shops, you see kids looking at them and pointing, they find it quite fashionable."
Fiona, 45, had been a 20-a-day smoker since her teens but gave up after she lost her mother Ruby two years ago to lung cancer at the age of 74. Ruby, also a 20-a-day smoker, passed away just three months after she was diagnosed.
Fiona said: "If anyone could see how my mum suffered, they would never take up this terrible addiction.
"Seeing this determined, hard-working, strong woman just fade away was heart breaking."
The family will put on their running shoes next month for Cancer Research UK's Race for Life in Glasgow on Sunday June 3.
Fiona's call comes as Cancer Research UK said today that 86% of people in Scotland believe children should not be exposed to any tobacco marketing.
