Hey Dan great post. The models and the fashion side of the smoking is a great inspiration for people who like to enhance there fashion look. I really have fun with my smoking and using it to flirt my friends and I really took a lot of time in the 80s looking at ads and movies on how all the hot women used a cigarette to create a look or make a statement. Hence came the big hair high heels and little black dress finished with a VS 120 off to the popular night clubs. We never had to light are own cigarettes and it seem to always be a great way to meet a guy we where interested in. We would make eye contact and he would fall all over himself trying to make his way over and light my smoke and make an introduction. Even now in my 40s when out on the town with my husband some guy will go out of his way to light my cigarette at least once a night.
That is a beautiful story deanab, makes me feel very warm inside, and happy that you care about and love smoking.
In the UK I remember the day the no smoking ban hit the bars, as we were upstairs in the ballroom having one last cig. It feels so long ago now that a lady could smoke indoors in public here, that I am envious. It sure is wonderful that guys still love to give you a light, so please enjoy your cigs all the more, knowing that some of us wish they could be there with you.
Same here, Now we have to go to a smoking area out side here in the states. Hopefully as the cancer rates keep going up as the smoking is down they will realize maybe that smoking isn't the only problem and a healthy life style with a modest smoking habit isn't the end of the world after all. I like to stay healthy and fit and concerned with my appearance and average a pack a day and find that to be sufficient to keep me satisfied. I would truly miss my morning cig with coffee or my evening cig with a glass of wine. All the ones in between seem to be as rewarding as well. Lol
Thats the spirit. I think anything in moderation is actually good for the body, and inhaling natural plant vapours is healthy, much more than smelling a plug-in air freshener, or chemical cleaners we use in the home.
Taking care of yourself and feeling good is the best way to fight cancers. People get cancers, perhaps 100s or thousands of them a year, and these are fought and dealt with unnoticeably by the body like the common cold. Smoking a few ciggies isnt going to harm anything one way or the other. Smoking is also good for the memory, and helps protect against dementia and alzheimer's.
We can learn from the past as far as smoking health concerns. In 1950, Tallulah Bankhead was smoking 100 unfiltered cigs a day, and drank two bottles of Bourbon. When she was told to cut down on the cigs, she started smoking 150 a day instead, and died in 1968, 18 years later. I think a pack a day is perfectly healthy, and going outside to smoke means you get more air than a couch-sitter, or someone glued to a display screen, so you are more healthy because you smoke.
