i don't think you can isolate them in that kind of way. the overall anti-smoking campaign, including education, awareness, propaganda, etc seems to be working. i don't have handy stats, but i expect that overall smoking numbers in canada are declining these days. i am assuming that this isn't merely coincidental. and images like these, whether or not they stop you from buying the next pack, are contributing to the paradigm of tobacco. they are not going to eradicate smoking, nor should they, but i am fairly convinced that these ads make it hard to ignore the possible outcomes of smoking.
