The first time I watched this video I was pretty sure the woman smoking was Chris Monroe. I would not put it past Chrissy to smoke on a plane, he has been busted smoking in the radio station bathroom several times. This smoking on a plane bitch is a perfect match for Chris "black lung" Monroe.
Most of us did not know her name, it was Terrie Hall. But I am guessing you saw the anti-smoking commercials she was featured in. Hall had oral throat cancer after many years of smoking. Over the summer cancer had spread to her brain.
A Washington man is accused of allegedly pulling a gun on a pregnant woman because she was smoking. The Daily Mail is reporting that Justin Palmer, 24, stopped his pick up truck when he saw an unidentified pregnant woman smoking a cigarette on a sidewalk.
Smoking is banned in a lot of places, since people don’t want to breathe in the fumes. But to fire someone from their job for smelling like smoke seems a bit excessive, no? Turns out it’s a loaded argument.
Since nicotine is an appetite suppressant and a stimulant, a fear of weight gain is one reason many smokers cite for refusing to quit.
And a new report stating ex-smokers pack on more pounds than previously thought probably won’t help matters any — but all may not be as it seems.
While surveys consistently show that more than 3 out of 4 smokers would like to quit, only about 10 percent of those who try each year are successful.
Fortunately, new studies show one way to raise those numbers is to treat smoking as a chronic disease — like high blood pressure — for which long-term treatment is offered.
