Don’t Want Acne? Quit Smoking!

As if you really needed another reason to kick that terrible smoking habit — that is, if you do smoke — here’s news that just might put you off those cancer sticks. Recent studies found that those who have the nasty habit are also more likely to have another nasty issue: acne. So that means in addition to stinky clothes, yellow fingers, and smoking breath, smokers can now add pimples and poor complexions to their list of issues, all thanks to the cigarettes they’re inhaling. We’d suggest heading out to the drugstore for Nicorette gum ASAP and relishing in your new, clear face once you’ve kicked the habit. Your lungs — and pores — will thank you.

This Baby Smokes 40 Cigarettes A Day

Meet Ardi Rizal. He is a smoking baby. He is two. Did I mention that he smokes? He favors a specific brand and throws a temper tantrum if he doesn’t get his 40 cigarettes a day. I’d think I was making this up if it weren’t for this video, starring Ardi, the smoking baby. He’s been smoking since he was 18 months old. His father got him started. The family lives in Sumatra, Indonesia. It says he can blow smoke rings, and I think he does at the end, although you can’t really see it. On account of all the cancer sticks, he is “is too unfit to run with the other children.” His mother says he is “totally addicted.” If she tries to make him stop, “he gets angry and screams and batters his head against the wall.” Officials offered the family a car if they got the baby to stop smoking. The father says, “I don’t see the problem.” What the hell? I don’t see this ending well. [Gawker] Keep reading »

Quotable: Jessica Simpson Chews Nicotine Gum

“The first time I ever chewed a piece of Nicorette gum one of my close friends’ mother gave it to me. I think she thought she was giving me a piece of regular gum. I was chewing it and it was like a party in my mouth. It was like fireworks and ‘Oh my god, I’m talking a million miles per hour and I love this gum and what kind of gum is this? I have to have this gum.’”

Jessica Simpson, never a smoker, on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” I have never been a smoker, nor have I ever chewed Nicorette, so I asked some friends who’ve quit by using the nicotine gum, who described it as: “fruity, like regular gum with a candy-like coating”; “the aftertaste is very medicinal”; “it burns and upsets the stomach”; “uh, it tastes like an ashtray.” Well, I guess we know what Jessica’s fresh, un-brushed breath smells like now.

Today’s Lady News: Cuba Wants Ladies To Start Smoking Cigars

Those Wacky French Folks. We Don’t Quite Get This PSA.

This French public service announcement is kind of like one of those eye trick images where you see either a vase or the outline of two faces. Is it trying to say that smoking is like giving a BJ to the tobacco industry? Or is the message that oral sex is as risky as smoking a ciggy? Well, Slate Double X has cleared it up with their handy-dandy French translation skills. Apparently, it’s the former—the text at the bottom reads, “Smoking is being tobacco’s slave,” and a spokesperson for the ad agency that made it explains, “The goal was simply to say ‘You are subjecting yourself to smoking.’ There is no analogy between sex and tobacco.” Huh? Also, I’m a little confused as to why, in the two male versions of the ad, the exec is wearing his suit jacket, while in the version with a teenage girl, he’s down to just his dress shirt? Or am I just reading too much into this now? [Double X] Keep reading »
