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]

In 2004, people figured out that if you smoke alcohol, you can get drunk almost immediately without any of the empty calories associated with that old-fashioned liquid alcohol.  A product called AWOL (Alcohol Without Liquid) was quickly banned in the U.S. because inhaling alcohol straight into the bloodstream is super dangerous. But now inhaling alcohol has resurfaced with a new sketchy product that’s being sold legally in all 50 states. The Vaportini, which is sold online, gets you schwasted immediately upon inhalation.

Madonna: Massive Hypocrite On Cigarette Stance?

Madonna is taking a major stand against cigarette smoking — just one month after glamorizing smoking in her latest music video. The Queen of Pop was on ”Today” this morning, where she was grilled over 15-year-old daughter Lourdes being caught puffing away on a cigarette.

Madge says she “wasn’t very happy” about the photos, adding “I don’t approve of anyone smoking cigarettes, most of all my daughter.” Read more…

Resolutions Worth Keeping
These six resolutions are definitely worth trying. Read More »

Every year, the majority of us — stemming from the most noble of intentions, or the most nauseating of eggnog overindulgence — declare our desire to start anew and totally revise our lives. For most of us, though, Groundhog Day brings not just an excuse to settle in with a Bill Murray movie, but the milestone of having let ourselves down once more. And yet by the time the ball drops anew in Times Square ten months later, we’re happily preparing to drop our own ball all over again.

What would it take to make our resolutions stick? Psychological research on goal-setting and achievement has a lot to teach us: they need be the right balance of realistic and challenging, and we need to have clear, specific pathways to reach them. We also are better off focusing on only one or two resolutions rather than attempting the equivalent of a floor-to-ceiling structural renovation of our inner selves. Sound too complicated? Here’s how to give the most common resolutions a psychological makeover, after the jump… Keep reading »

Smoking Is Bad For Your Nipples

If fear of lung cancer or emphysema isn’t enough to make you quit smoking, do it for your nipples. Apparently, nicotine and carbon monoxide restrict blood flow to various parts of the body … like your nipples. According to plastic surgeon, Anthony Youn, M. D., smokers who undergo breast surgery are at great risk for having their nipples “turn black and fall off.” They just die. Guh! Youn once tried to bring a patient’s purple (about to turn black) nipples back to life by placing leeches on them.  “The leech drains the old blood, causing it to turn from unhealthy purple back to healthy pink. We place leeches intermittently until the body part grows new blood vessels to do the leeches’ work,” Youn recalled.  The image of this entire scenario is terrifying. [CNN]

Smoking Kids Are Startling Art

Holy disturbing, Batman! These little nuggets are much too small to be sucking on the cancer sticks! Thankfully photographer Frieke Janssen didn’t give the children real cigarettes or cigars — they are “smoking” cheese. The artist was inspired, apparently, by that two-year-old boy in Indonesia who smoked 40 cigarettes a day. The depressing thing is, though, that lots of people won’t realize smoking is gross at any age. [Neatorama] 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 »
