Smoking Blows!

What is Photoshop for other than to create nonsense?  At least this nonsense is for a good cause.  To mark Thursday’s Great American Smoke Out, a national day to quit smoking, Ellen DeGeneres took some “Mad Men” clips, removed all references to smoking and replaced them with party blowers. Don Draper would have been a hell of a lot less mercurial with party blowers! Slightly more annoying, though. [Ellen TV]

Smoking while pregnant isn’t defensible.

But you know what else isn’t defensible? Pointing a gun at a pregnant woman. Keep reading »

Smoking Damages Ladies Hearts And Lungs Way More Than Men’s

Cigarettes are sexist! According to a new study by scientists at the University of Minnesota and Johns Hopkins University, female smokers face a 25 percent greater risk of developing heart disease than males who do a comparable amount of puff-puffing. Similarly, lady smokers have double the risk of lung cancer. These alarming stats come from crunching the data on 2.4 million people between the years of 1966 and 2010, so it’s no joke. And the scientists have a theory on why this is happening. “Women might extract a greater quantity of carcinogens and other toxic agents from the same number of cigarettes than men,” they say. So put that in your “inspiration to quit” hat and … smoke it. [Newser, MedPage] Keep reading »

Smooth Move: Camel Targets Hipsters With “Williamsburg” Cigarettes

Smooth move, Camel. You may think you’re being smart by touting Williamsburg, the Brooklyn hipster enclave, on your new cigarette packaging. You think you’re appealing to youngsters who feed on Brooklyn pride and the idea of “authenticity.” But newsflash: hipsters hate being called hipsters and probably aren’t going to associate themselves with products that imply it. In fact, if you want to rope in the 20-something skinny jeans crowd, you should probably make yourself as completely uncool as possible. [Refinery 29] Keep reading »

Taylor Momsen Is 17, But Someone Sold Her Cigarettes!

Party foul, Taylor Momsen. Our favorite thigh-high wearing, sex tape-loving actress/rock star was photographed on the set of “Gossip Girl” smoking a cigarette in one hand and waving to paparazzi while holding a pack of Marlboro Lights in the other. Who sold her smokes? Tsk-tsk, she’s not of age. It’s just a matter of time until we get Lindsay Lohan-esque exploits from this one. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Gross: Japanese Portable Ashtray For Women

If you smoke, you already have to deal with smelling like an ashtray, so we’re not sure why anyone would actually want to carry around one—in their purse no less! Apparently in Japan, “mobile ashtrays are now fashion items.” For women who want to be “responsible smokers” (whatever that means), this girly metallic pouch attaches to your purse so you can tote your aromatic ashes with you.

Cigarette Box Wraps Go After Teen Market

Watchdogs have gotten riled up about Joe Camel’s appeal to children and teens in the past, but soon they could have SmokeStixx on their hit list. This website sells customizable cigarette box wraps that let people play dress-up with their ciggys. Isn’t that fun! Here’s SmokeStixx’s rationale behind this unnecessary product:

“Cigarette consumers no longer need to feel ashamed about buying cigarettes. SmokeStixx decals dramatically transform the appearance of cigarette boxes into fashion forward accessories. With new motifs launching every month, cigarette consumers can constantly stay ahead of the pack.”

I’m calling BS. With designs like a pink tiara, flaming skull, and psychedelic disco lights on the decals, we all know exactly who would want this product — teens, who can totally afford the 99 cents price. [SmokeStixx via Trend de la Creme] Keep reading »

Obama’s War On Cancer Sticks

Obama may puff on a cigarette every now and then, but that doesn’t mean he thinks it’s okay for you to do it. On Monday, he signed a bill that will seriously regulate cancer sticks. Under this bill, the Food and Drug Administration gets to rule over tobacco companies with an iron fist. By January, cigarette companies will have to register with the FDA and offer up a list of the ingredients in everything they’re making. The president of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids called this “the strongest action the federal government has ever taken to reduce tobacco use.” [USA Today] Keep reading »
