Fuck This for a Bad Joke or The Plight of the Aussie Smoker
« on: April 29, 2010, 07:30:42 AM »
No I'm not talking about our Kevinly Father's decision to hike durri taxes by 25% from midnight tonight.

Rising fag taxes are an inexorable fact of life. Matty the Damned can live with that.

What he can't live with is the Self Extinguishing Cigarette.

Oh these things are hateful. They taste revolting. My beloved Winfield Blues



now taste like shredded non-recyclable shopping bag smeared in dog poo and rolled in a dirty football sock. :(

Monstrous isn't it?

Here I am, a Horny Handed Son of Toil with precious few pleasures in his miserable existence save for his Winnie Blues and the obligatory breakfast vodka.

I accept that Da Man is gonna take his cut through ever increasing tobacco excises.

I have resigned myself to smoking outside in a sweaty huddle with others of My Kind.

I have even adjusted to health fascist gore porn:



blazened across each packet.

But to adulterate the Working Man's only comfort with dangerous chemicals in the name of fire prevention is just not cricket.  >:(

I'm the lone smoker amongst my friends who have all quit . When they give my shit about it I remind them they are jealous because they have nothing to look forword to every fifteen minutes like I do .

I have answers for every retort ... when they ask when are you gonna quit smoking I say 30 minutes after I am cremated . And when they tell me second hand smoke kills I tell them not fast enough .

someone's palate seems widely experienced in a plethora of items...I am a non smoker and I do agree you smokers are being pushed out in the cold, but here in San Fran they are being denied period just barely. I don't smoke but I feel with all the information out there about smoking and people still can't or won't quit leave them alone.

LMAO@jg1962.....I love your replies....I have tried quitting but started smoking due to be stressed out. I did notice that when I did quit that habit made me want to smoke more than the nicotine. I think the Wellbutrin helped with that.

All of my parents, adopted and biological smoked. They say smoking causes cancer but with my folks the cancer didn't come til once they stopped smoking. I just thought that was weird. And I can't imagine a cigarette that puts itself out.

Maybe in 'Bama, but not in my god-forsaken area.  Mine still burn, and burn down good.  Maybe other brands are, and not the brand I puff on.  But, I smoke so fast anyway, I probably wouldn't have noticed.

I met a really goodlooking guy a couple of months ago at a friends birthday party .

He pulled me aside and told me he wanted to ask me out on a date but just couldn't handle dating a smoker . I had a few glasses of wine by then and told him to check back with me in a few years because by that time you will be ugly enough that you cant afford to be so damn picky .

I used to have a pretty open policy on smoking where I would just deal with it.  Now however it's just this huge hassle for those of us who don't smoke.  I'd like to say I'm still open to dating smokers/dippers but I definitely hold it against someone.  Honestly, I'd be trying to figure out a way to get someone to quit if I found the man of my dreams and he smoked.  Slipping chantix into his coffee or something.

If I didn't smoke I would feel the same as you . I do not and will not allow smoking in my house because of the smell . I do want to quit .

Now the Aussie Govt. has decided to put the tax on cigarettes up by 2 dollars a pack. They now cost, on average, about sixteen dollars.
And, they will not be allowed to have any recognizable logo on the packet, plain white packet, no branding, and just a health warning.

I gave up 12 years ago, after heavy smoking for 31 years.
I just can't even feel what it would be like to have them back in my life.
If you wanna smoke, go ahead, but boy it's nice not to.
The money I save on smoking, i go on an overseas trip every year.
Next year, Cambodia/Laos.

$16 US dollars a pack?!  Wow.  And I think paying $5.76 a pack is terrible.  I know in Chicago, smokes cost around $10/pack. 

I want to quit someday, just not right now.  And I know from past experience, that unless I truly want to, it ain't happenin'.  I've used patches to quit, and Chantix.  The last time I used Chantix, I got pretty aggitated, and had pretty bad anxiety. I didn't get the suicidal stuff, though, that some do with Chantix.  So, when I quit again, I'll probably use the patch.  Or gum; I have a friend who's using the gum and swears by it.
