I know you can win the fight balonz
Wow a triple threat
Among all the birthdays (mine included) I think it's gonna be more like rocktober
why don't people who want to quit just stop, rather than waiting until October? Also is it suggesting you just stop for a month then carry on like the people who have a booze-free January?
`If you quit for 28 days you're five times more likely to quit for good`. Not sure where they get their figures from, and not sure how they're defining `quit for good` but there's a logic behind it.
Anything trying to get people to stop smoking is worth it in my view. And it's clearly resonated with the OP so... that's something.
My issue is that I found it relatively easy to quit, I just realised I didn't want to smoke any more, so I stopped doing it. So all these gimmicks seem a touch odd to me, or anything to do with patches or ecigs. I am aware for some people it isn't quite so straightforward.
Might be good for me physically/ mentally and save me some cash, and it could be for charity or whatever. Good vibes.
And then I thought what the actual fuck, of course not.
a good 40% of train advertising is for some Big Wear Pink day or Stoptober or Wear Your Crap Christmas Jumper To Work Day or something.
Sadly there are Fundraising Directors up and down the land saying to their Events teams:
`We need a Macmillan Coffee Morning! Go and create one!`
So charities launch no end of this sort of stuff. The `marketplace` is getting alarmingly crowded...
moker would never have stooped that low
Just a shame it also happens to be the most horrible and pointless thing you can do to your body...
Tastes fucking brilliant after coffee/a shag too. Or, shagging coffee, presumably.
Might as well lick out an ashtray.
Knock yourself out.
On the assumption that "knock yourself out" is meant literally.
refused to go out with someone once mainly because they stunk of cigarettes (but also because they were a bad person)
my mam and dad are on them e-cigs now
they always smoked outside anyway
but two of my aunties have smoke-friendly homes and it's AWFUL everything smells like tabs even when nobody has smoked anything in a while
The stupendous forgotten joy of snogging people who tasted of people was the top upside of the breakup by a mile.
this is indisputable fact
I think I'm getting the Quit Smoking thing mixed up with the Go Sober For October thing
and the time i end up trying to stop totally will end up coinciding with the start of october. so i guess i am
There was an extended advert for this in the style of a saturday night entertainment show hosted by paddy mcguiness and with sketched by al murray and lee nelson. Enough to damn this campaign.
in fact if i didn't smoke i'd probs start just to spite the pricks
Mostly because I'm back living with parents and they're pressuring me to stop. I don't actually want to quit tbh, I have no real motivation apart from the vague threat of health problems way into the future. I like smoking, it gives order to my day.
Horribly unhealthy attitude there.
people who are anti-smoking are a bunch of crybaby bible bashers tbh
September is always like this when you're still in education.
Still recovering from Whoregust.
