A short serve of imformation

This might serve as an suitable reply to to the minimal traffic arriving from relatives and friends with regard to posts and letters to relatives, sent out over the past few weeks. Last Sunday went off well although I was the sole survivor of my assoc attending the Anzac Commemoration. Unfortunately the tobacco smoke in one area of the club has affected my eyes, hence watery stinging eyes have made the past three days unpleasant, so this post will only be received by those who have requested it.
 Due to my eye problem driving is out, so our proposed trip to see our sons and families down south is off, an email to Andrew no 4 son who rarely checks his email will surprise him that we didn't turn up!!! This post will serve as a reminder to David who answers his email more regularly.

Now here is some real bad news for Smokers. The cost of smokes will shortly increase to recover some of the costs smokers contribute to the poor health of others and to themselves.

..Cigarettes to come in plain pack

CIGARETTE packs will be stripped of company logos, colours and brand imagery from January 2012 in a bid to slash the nation's smoking rate to 10 per cent.

The world-first laws will require cigarettes to be sold in plain white packaging with the product name displayed in small type in a standard colour and typeface on the bottom of the packet - on top of today's expected excise increase.
The mandated health warnings will remain on the flip side of the packet.
The plan to remove one of the last vehicles for tobacco advertising is expected to be announced by the Rudd Government today.
The Government's National Preventative Health Taskforce which called for the law change last year has the support of the Cancer Council and the Australian Medical Association.

Do you think this will work? Tell us below

The Government is expected to develop and test the new designs itself to make them as unappealing as possible to young people.

A 2008 study found packaging to be a key marketing tool for tobacco companies, with people much more likely to rate packs with terms "smooth", "silver" and "gold" as lower tar, lower health risk and easier to quit.
The survey found 44.9 per cent of smokers thought the commercial pack would be low in tar and nicotine compared to 33.3 per cent who thought this about a plain packet of cigarettes.
Tobacco company market testing shows pack design can even influence a smoker's rating of taste when the same cigarette is packaged differently.
Smoking is the single largest preventable cause of disease and death, killing over 15,000 Australians a year. The number of smokers in Australia has almost halved since 1988 from 30.5 per cent of adults to 16.6 per cent.

KISS A NON SMOKER AND TASTE THE DIFFERENCE


What happened to the slogan 'Kiss a non smoker and taste the difference'?

Did the tobacco companies buy the copyright and ban its publication? if so what about having a new slogan! But remember the kids will have to see it too.

My partner and I are non smokers and only experience this dreadful problem at alcohol pumped up parties and other social gatherings.

What have you experienced when kissing a tobacco smoker? be careful now.

What are your thoughts on tobacco usage in general? like ban Smokes, ration them or tax them out of reach of people, or should we wear a non smokers badge which states,

"Blow that smoke in my face and you will die you bastard"

Remember you dopey smokers, It will reduce your shagging days considerably and each smoke an hour of your life.

Maybe smokers should be fitted with smoke stacks!!

Remember, life shrinks or expands in proportion to ones courage. Give it up

Have a wonderful weekend. Vest.

On the basis of these risks and the prevalence of smoking in the UK, Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) and the British Medical Association (BMA) estimate that up to 120,000 UK men in their 30s and 40s are impotent as a direct consequence of smoking.

This figure is likely to be an underestimate, because it does not include impotence due to previous smoking in men who no longer smoke.

Smoking and Erectile Dysfunction in Men

Terms
Impotence, or penile erectile dysfunction, is the repeated inability to have or maintain an erection. The condition affects roughly 1 in 10 men between the ages of 21 and 75 - that's about two million men in the UK alone. In up to 75% of cases, the cause is physical.



50% Increased Risk in Smokers

Smoking increases the risk of erectile dysfunction by around 50% for men in their 30s and 40s. Diabetes, high cholesterol levels and drugs used to treat high blood pressure are also important risk factors.

Another logo. "Smokers breath can cause your death".

If the government actually cared, they would ban it completely, and target the far worse problem of alcohol.

Jimmy said...

I dont know about your country guys
but in INDIA for cigaretes and booze the EXCISE DUTY is heavy

the GOVT makes plenty money

Jimmy said...

it took 100 years for the Surgeon General to determine that ciggy smoking causes cancer



reason; Cancer research was sponsored by tobacco companies

Vest said...

Chris B; "Ah number one son".
"You are the person responsible for the Bathroom hatch being left open to funnel the smoke which occasionly mounts the stairs into our living areas. As for alcohol; your monetary contribution to the approx one third of the plonk you consume bought by your parents is long forthcoming.
Your statement "Ban all alcohol" is phoney, also your temporary deafness when hearing statements such as "Leave your money on the fridge" and "Your Shout sport" is phoney too". Dad.

Jimmy said...

the flower children of the Hippy gen
said if LSD is proved to cause cancer, the Govt will legalize it

Vest said...

Chris B: But you are helpful in many other ways. Mum & Dad.

An off blog message delivered a few minutes ago by mummykins inferred that I was out of order in my reply to No one son. Oh diddums.
You are all reminded that any incoming comment on this blog receives a reply deserving of its message, there is no soft pedal on my keyboard, however, there is a fact button, and for the over sensitive a sorry if I offended you button; which I shall press 'NOW'.
Have a happy day , Daddy.x.

BTW The status quo remains.

LOVE is never having to say SORRY

For weather freaks. Two weeks back the midday middle thirties cel temp, has been deemed a mistake for Autumn by the weather gurus who have rectified the problem by pulling a switch at the weather station and fast tracking an overnight temp of 11 cel and a present midday temp of 15 cel with added rain.

One of the reasons I sit quietly in my 16' with a dog. The dog stinks.

I also roll cigarettes. The caravan stinks. If i need a shit, walk 100 yards to a 'short drop' .. my shit stinks.

Your point is ..?

Vest said...

Regardless of any misgivings and any necessary actioned relevance to a problem, love of family is not lost in the preamble.
Most people read of an answer which most suits them.
However. The truth is always more important than bending the facts to fit the theory, unfortunately not everybody shares that opinion.

Vest said...

Here is a genuine offer you cannot refuse.
C B. I shall pay you Aud$1,000-00. should you make the effort to stop smoking right now and cease altogether in one month and maintain a non smoking life style for a minimum of six months to receive payment.
This statement will be witnessed by all those visiting this site.
DAD.

Jimmy said...

WOWWWWWWW

Jimmy said...

Every body's shit Stinks

Your point is DAVO ..?

Davo said...

Interesting concept.

Davo said...

is there point? Nah, just suggesting that people do what they want to do.
Far be it from me to "tell" THEM THE 'SHOULD'S AND SHOULDN'TS'.

If they want to 'gamble' with their life .. not my problem .. heh.

Vest said...

Hi Davo: It is rewarding to have people like yourself with high powers of reasoning infiltrating this post.
I am so surprised that your poo whiffs a fair bit, haven't people in the lower dominions come in contact with the 'No WHIFF Pill'.
I have no axe to grind with solo dwellers whose choice is entirely their own with little effect on others.
Your simple and contented lifestyle. would be the envy of others if able to break their shackles.

Davo Solo dweller?

dont need women?
dont need boys?
