Smoking a big Issue Now in Russia…

I resurrected an passage out of the article that I posted a very long time ago. In fact it was one of the first articles that I ever posted. Here is the article…

When I came to Russia I quit smoking. I had smoked 0ver 30 years. Its a good thing! The price of cigarettes is so cheap in Russia that I would have smoked even more. In the US I was paying 4 to 5 dollars a pack. In Russia I would only have to pay 75 cents. I am thankful to have quit.

I read that in the last 10 years that Russians have increased smoking 100%.

That is sad, When the US is trying to stamp smoking out, Russia is trying to get everyone to smoke.

What do you think? Is Smoking OK?

cold turkeyIt comes to mind because Russia is going through one of her save the people spells and from what I see, Russians need to have someone try to save them. Now don’t get me wrong, I think we should have our own minds to make up and no one should tell us what to do, but Russians sometimes are kinda all over the place when it comes to being on one side of the fence or another…

have said this before, “What one Russian does they all do!”

So we are now on a crusade to stop smoking. The Duma has passed some of the most stringent laws against public smoking I have ever seen. They never build into something slowly and build steam on the subject, they just grab a subject and try to change the world all at once…

That is why I love Russians…

So I have not touched a cigarette for 7 years now and I will not touch one again. I did the quitting thing “cold turkey” as we in America call it. I smoked the last cigarette in America and stopped, but I do every once in a while think about sitting and having a cup of coffee and smoking a cigarette or a cigar…

All I can tell Russians is that they will be better off by quitting and the way to quit is just “Cold Turkey!”
