La Palina Cigars Launch Event

June 24th, 2010 Posted in Cigars Tags:

The La Palina 1896On Thursday night June 17th, 2010 a cigar that was originally released in 1896 had a resurrection as it was officially introduced to the world on the roof top of the world famous Empire Hotel in New York City. It seems that the cigar gods were on the side of William C. Paley, owner of the La Palina brand as you could not of asked for a more perfect night to enjoy cocktails, canapes, and cigars.
When I arrived at the Empire Hotel there was a line to get to the rooftop as the bar located on the pool deck is one of the hottest spots in NYC for singles but thankfully I had an invite and was able to skip the line. So once we checked in with the hostess it was off to the roof.

One history about smoking

June 24th, 2010 Posted in Tobacco treaty Tags:

smoking manIt is important for the Maker to understand that he has not yet kicked the habit just because he has not had a smoke for almost four weeks now. Still he can placate himself with the thought the urge is not as strong and as overwhelming as before. He must watch out for those moments when the urge kicks in like pangs of longing and then he misses tobacco as he would miss a dearly beloved lover.
The first week that he quit should not count. He smoked his last full stick of cigarette in Margie’s house in Oxnard City, California. Margie is his sister. She works as a nurse practitioner in an eating disorder hospital here. Unlike a regular nurse, a nurse practitioner is licensed to diagnose and dispense medicine much like a doctor for as long as they work with a regular doctor. He decided to quit smoking after Margie once again called him a “walking time bomb” right after getting his vital signs.

She said: “I was diagnosed with lung disease about eight years ago. I thought I just had asthma, so it was a shock.

“I had been getting out of breath really quickly. It got so that if I was doing a scene on Coronation Street, I would get to the set while the scene before was being filmed. I would have to sit down straight away.

Smoking caused fatal fire in Wellesley

June 23rd, 2010 Posted in Tobacco news Tags:

Smoking caused fatal fireFire investigators have determined that smoking caused a fatal fire in Wellesley on June 12.
The fire on Swathmore Road killed 81-year-old Mary Ellen Thomas, and officials believe that a lit cigarette ignited her clothing or that her clothing made contact with an electric burner while she was trying to light a cigarette, State Fire Marshal Stephen D. Coan and Wellesley Fire Chief Richard DeLorie said in a statement today.
Smoking is the leading cause of fire death in Massachusetts even as fire prevention technologies have improved over the years, Coan said.
Other improvements, including so-called “fire safe” cigarettes that are designed to burn themselves out, have decreased these numbers lately.

E-Cigs Satisfy With Nicotine But Leave The Tar Behind

June 23rd, 2010 Posted in Electronic cigarettes Tags:

E-CigIt’s a new smoking alternative that is sweeping the nation and with all the benefits it holds over smoking tobacco, it’s no wonder. It’s called the electronic cigarette. It is a relatively simple device that looks and feels very similar to a real cigarette. It replicates the act of smoking using a nicotine-infused, odorless vapor which is almost identical to real smoke. The key component of the device is called an “atomizer”, which is the technology behind the vaporization process. Once the user inhales from the mouthpiece of the unit, the atomizer is instantly triggered, vaporizing the nicotine liquid into a thick, white mist in a process that many users claim to be as seamless as actually smoking. A glowing LED light on the tip even lights up with every puff to further simulate the act of smoking.

Barack Obama used nicotine gum

June 23rd, 2010 Posted in Celebrities smoking Tags:

Barack ObamaYou would think the leader of the world’s most powerful nation would possess the wherewithal to quit smoking, but it doesn’t necessarily work that way.

Exhibit A: Barack Obama.
During the 2008 presidential campaign, he promised wife Michelle that he would renounce tobacco for good.
But Obama had his first medical checkup as U.S. commander-in-chief in February, and the doctor’s report made it clear he was still struggling with the pernicious pleasures of nicotine. (He also had a slightly elevated cholesterol level, but was otherwise said to be in excellent health.)
