Stoptober Cometh

I see we are but days away from Nanny's "Stoptober" campaign to encourage smokers to quit smoking en masse for 28 days.

In theory, if Nanny is to believed, those who manage to stop for 28 days have a greater chance of breaking their "addiction" (Nanny's word) than those who don't.

I predict that whilst the usage of fags may diminish temporarily during the 28 day period, the consumption of other "Nanny disapproved" substance (eg booze, illegal drugs, sugar and chocolate) will increase.

Like it or not, the brain is programmed to seek pleasure; deprive it of one "vice", and it will look for a substitute.

In the meantime Nanny may care to consider what she will do do supplement her ever dwindling tax revenue, if she ever does succeed in weaning large numbers of people of her much hated "weed".

FYI, my granddad used to smoke a robust substance called "Diggers' Shag" (I dare say the name would be banned now); one day he simply decided to stop smoking (of his own free will, not because the state lectured him to stop), and did just that. He had a strong will, and never suffered from withdrawal symptoms.

He died in the early 1970's, not from the effects of smoking but from complications caused by the piece of shrapnel that was still in him from when his ship HMS Pegasus was sunk by the Konigsberg in 1914.

    I see she is also trying to use kids to emotionally blackmail their parents into doing as Nanny tells them.

    I have never smoked and have never wanted to but, if it wasn't for the fact I feel sick whenever I smell cigarette smoke, I would bloody start just to stick two fingers up at Nanny.

    Reminds me of the old joke:-

    One pipesmoker to another,
    'Would you like some "Rough Shag?"'
    'No, I'd rather have "Three Nuns"'

    I am, as we speak, honing my response for any grinning drone who bounces up to brightly suggest that I quit - after five years of increasing marginalisation and constant hectoring I don't feel inclined to be pleasant.


  4. If anyone comes near me with their bloody Stoptober balloons I'll stab it, the balloon that is.
    Meanwhile I plan to buy an extra packet per day, just to confuse them.
