European Members of Parliament - How A Cigarette Ban Went Up In SmokeSmokers Drenched

18th February 2007

After only 6 weeks, members of the European parliament (MEPs) have reversed a decision banning smoking in their buildings.  A committee of MEPs, decided that the ban was unenforceable.

Despite backing smoking bans in countries from Sweden to Ireland, when it came to sticking to their own new year's resolution MEPs proved that they lacked willpower.

Anti-smoking have had a field day condemned the hypocrisy, given that the  European Union is promoting smoking bans across the continent.

Deborah Arnott, director of the antismoking charity Ash, described the latest decision as 'scandalous'.  Deborah went on to say: 'There can be no justification for politicians to place themselves above the law and it makes a mockery of the commission's proposals for an EU-wide smoking ban.  

Sweden, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, and Belgium have made successfully introduced bans.  Smoking in enclosed public areas was banned in England from 1st July 2007.  Even France is joined the smoke-free bandwagon.  See more on Anti-smoking campaigns

Smoking PointSmoking Point

In the 'Maltermeister Turm' restaurant in Goslar, Sachsen State, Germany the chef Michael Windisch, smokes his cheroot through a 'Smoking Point', that he built in a restaurant wall.  The idea is that not only can staff smoke at the Smoking Point, but also customers can go there for a quick drag.  See inside view in picture to the right.

These holes have been made because of a smoking ban in restaurants by Lower Saxony legislation.  More German states implement smoking bans from the 1st of January 2008.

Anti-Smoker Meets Fire Extinguisher Smoke Or Leave

An anti-smoker in Bielefeld, Germany was so angry when his girlfriend lit a cigarette that he set off a fire extinguisher to put out the fag.

'My colleagues said it looked like a bomb had gone off in there,' said a police spokesman. 'He managed to put the cigarette out though.' After the woman ignored his request not to smoke, the 42-year-old sprayed the contents of the extinguisher all around the flat shouting abuse, police said. 'He said he wasn't bothered by the damage it caused,' the spokesman said. 'And that he's through with his girlfriend.'

Smoking Umbrella HatsSmoking Umbrella HatsUmbrella Hats

Customers at a cliff-top hotel are being given umbrella hats when they go outside for a smoke. [Britain now has no smoking in all public areas]. Owner Chaz Charlton, 41, came up with the idea after she was refused permission for a smoking shelter.  Planning chiefs feared it would get blown away by sea gales, reports The Sun newspaper.

Instead guests at the Clifton Hotel in Portland, Dorset, UK now get some protection from the elements if they wear the wacky headgear.  Chaz said, 'The hats have been very popular because of the torrential rain we've been having.'

World No Smoking Day

Will Gives Up Smoking

Will was once an inveterate smoker and stopped at 11.15am on 9th August, 2000. This time and date is branded into his memory.

In Will's opinion there is no magic bullet or quick fix to stopping the habit. It takes determination to succeed and a trenchant commitment to not starting again when things get difficult. The smoker must set a target and stick to it and not allow anyone nor anything to deter him/her from the goal of quitting.

Health Guru Used Humour In His Anti-Smoking MessageNo Butts

Charles "Charlie" Althafer, 77, a health educator who oversaw anti-smoking campaigns, died on the 9th February, 2009 of heart failure at his home in the USA. Friends, family and colleagues all agreed that Charles Althafer didn't beat people over the head about the dangers of smoking; instead he used humour regularly.
For example, Will and Guy have established that when someone asked to smoke in his home, he'd hand them a wooden ashtray shaped like a coffin with a sticker: 'Please don't smoke. You might croak.'

He also had a cigarette lighter that, when flicked, unleashed a horrific, hacking cough.

Friends and family say such antics were vintage Althafer, in a decades-long career with the Centres for Disease Control.

Thought Provoking Anti Smoking PoetryAnti-smoking cartoon

The Leg

The other day I gave a cough
And there and then my leg fell off
A policeman near gave it a stare
And said, you cannot leave it there

I took it to a Doc who said
I'm sorry but this leg is dead
I was so shocked I started grieving
Then I heard the leg still breathing

When I knew it wasn't dead
I rushed it to a hospital bed
It was stitched back on by Dr Hay
But facing, alas the other way

Now, when I walk I have found
I only go around and around.

Emphysema Dad

Each breath makes your chest shudder
My heart, a knife, a stab
As you try and take another

Emphysema Dad
When can we go and play
I'm only a young lad
Don't leave me Dad, please stay

Emphysema Dad
To me you are fantastic
But here on this clip pad
You're just one more statistic

Emphysema Dad
There's a guy in the next bed
Got gangrene, so he's had
An op - he's lost his leg

Emphysema Dad
Don't smoke, you said, it's dumb
The waste, the pain, it's sad
And cancer claimed your Mum

Emphysema Dad
Being cool was one big lie
It's a suicidal fad
I love you Dad, goodbye

Smoking ban spreads its wings throughout the UK Smoking ban spreads its wings throughout the UK

Smokers have been prevented from using a wall-mounted ashtray outside a pub after it became home to a family of blue tits. Regular drinkers at The Cottage, in Thorpe St Andrew, near Norwich, Norfolk, England first noticed the birds a few weeks ago. Now chicks have hatched inside, with a pair of blue tits regularly seen flying to and from the small metal container to feed them.

This isn't the first time nesting has occurred; Will and Guy have found that smokers at an office building in Cardiff, Wales were asked not to use an ashtray in the spring, when a family of blue tits took up residence. Pictured here:

In Scotland, as well, a Great Tit family have made their home in a cigarette bin despite the fact that purpose built nests are available. The bin at Vane Farm, Loch Leven, Kinross holds four baby tits the RSPB [Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, Scotland] has told Will and Guy.

Berlin January 2007 - Smoking Hoax

 ♪

The manager of a computer company who claimed that he fired three non-smokers because they had threatened to upset working harmony, admitted that the story was a hoax.

The hoax was exposed by Stephanie Lamprecht, a journalist at the Hamburger Morgenpost.  Apparently Thomas Joschko first told Stephanie that he had fired the three from his 10-person staff because they were causing a disruption with their non-smoking but later admitted the story was not true.

Lamprecht, whose story was published widely in the German and international media last week, said: 'Joschko said it was a joke and worth the trouble. He said he's a chain-smoker himself and said he was tired of smokers being hassled so much.'

Lamprecht drove 120 km (75 miles) from Hamburg to Buesum on Monday to try to confirm the story after doubts about its accuracy surfaced. She said the Morgenpost planned to publish an updated version of the story in its Wednesday edition.

'He said he was on a pro-smoker mission,' said Lamprecht. She said she had checked some of the facts of his story last week and became suspicious that all was not as it seemed.
