Now this is what I call safe smoking, since there’s no second-hand smoking involved or third-hand for that matter. All the smoke gets sucked using the tube instantly. Japan has of course came up with more bizarre things. I think smokers should be charged a fee for smoking to cover the cost of installing the tubes because those don’t come cheap.
It has reached the point where it’s almost pointless telling a smoker how harmful smoking is. They likely know about the side effects of smoking more than anyone else by now. I spotted this in Qurtoba Co-op yesterday and I completely agree with what is said. If someone wants to deteriorate their healthy by smoking that’s fine, just do it far away from everyone else.
As if second hand smoking wasn’t bad enough, turns out there’s also a 3rd level. What’s worse is 3rd hand smoking doesn’t need a smoker present to take effect. The many toxins that linger in carpets, clothing and other materials are 3rd hand smoking. The toxins smell can stay for up to days. Breathing in a room where someone smoked yesterday can be harmful.
The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine explained that because hot dogs contain processed meat(and lots of sodium), they contain the cancer risks equivalent to those of cigarettes. Fortunately I’m don’t like hot dogs and the only time I see myself eating one is when a movie is about to start so I’d grab one off the Cinescape food counter.
The committee went as far as trying to implement health warnings in hot dogs just like the ones you see in cigarettes. I think that’s taking it a bit too far. If you eat vegetables and fruits regularly then sneak in a few hot dogs every week, you’ll do just fine in my opinion. Just try to limit yourself to consume less hot dogs if you’re a hot dog lover.[Source]
I was invited to check out what you new technology SHARP had to offer in Al Yousifi showroom yesterday. I liked the idea of the all Japanese atmosphere, the ladies wore traditional Yukata clothing. Something I have never seen locally. There were a lot of interesting SHARP exclusive technologies, I’ll go through my favourite two. They have some pretty good discounts for families, but the offers are only available for the next 2 days.
Quattron Technology: Most new SHARP televisions have Quattron technology that is a SHARP exclusive. Normal televions blend RGB(red,green,blue) to make other colours you see on your TV. Quattron however mixes 4 colours instead of three adding the colour yellow. A detailed explanation showing the differences can be seen here.
Car Air Purifier: I don’t smoke and I declare war on anyone attempting so smoke in my car. This is a great solution for those with friends that smoke. It’s like a cup you place anywhere in the car and forget about. The device releases plasmacluster ions that remove influenza virus, cigarette and pet odor inside a car. It can be charged by a cigarette lighter.
Great seeing you guys: Bloglaish, Q8Stig, Crowsy and Q8Rain
I was at a government building the other day that smelled like a smoking lounge when I read this sign. Asking smokers politely to smoke in their section area is not an efficient way of banning smoking. Avenues is a non-smoking mall and I can’t help but smell the smoke all the time. Many smokers wouldn’t care less about other people’s health. Laws must be enforced.
China just banned smoking in public places. This includes hotels, restaurants, stations and theatres. I cannot make sense of how a country more than 470 times the population size of Kuwait is able to permit a ban on smoking while it is permissable to smoke in most closed places in Kuwait.
What we considered a break through was when one mall banned smoking. Of course there was alot of criticism soon after the ban was released since it was nothing more than words. Smokers kept smoking like they used to and restaurants still offered ash trays to show their support. This gave a positive impression for smokers to keep smoking on non-smoking areas, which does make things even worse.
I don’t understand why is it so hard to make the rule and imply it like everyone else. UAE banned smoking in malls, and from what I understood if caught smoking the person must pay a fine. They are also banning smoking in public places as the next step to demolish smokers. I’m still optimistic about banning smoking, I’m just not sure for how long.
I know there are half a million ways to quit smoking out there, and most of them don’t work. But I firmly believe none do if the person doesn’t intend on quitting in the first place. You have to quit because you want to quit, because maybe you someday realised your life depends on it.
I found a great website that offers expert personal advice to quit smoking. You can either try it by phone call or web. You might want to try it through web as international phone calls are pricey. I haven’t tried it myself since I’m not a smoker, but I hope by using the website it will be the leap a person needs to quit smoking.[Website]
