Anyone dumb enough to deliberately put smoke and ashes from a fire in their lungs is the type of person who one might expect to carry an open  container of red paint and a paint brush on a public bus, and be able to write upside down and in reverse, while hanging out a bus window in traffic.

Something is SERIOUSLY mis-wired in their brains!

Winston tastes bad, like the one I just had. 

No filter, no flavor, just cotton-pickin paper.

Funny how the words of old commercials were repeated so many times in front of us who are now 60-plus. I can rattle off the slogans from about 10 different cigarette commercials (and ten old beer commercials) even though I never smoked and never drank. There was no restriction on TV or radio or magazines to plaster the commercials constantly.

I take it that your name "salem" is just coincidental to your interest in Winston. Or perhaps you are from Winston-Salem, NC.

Also, this particular little take-off on "Winston Tastes Good" strikes me as a match to a very old 'parody' of their slogan. It makes fun, not of cigarettes and cigarette smoking in general, but specifically of the Winston brand, as if Salems, or Marlboros taste better, and that's the reason to make fun of the bad taste of Winston. (Of course, the term "cotton pickin" is a bit dated, too, as most people now recognize the racist elements in the term.)

      "A pack a day keeps lung cancer away" quoted Dr Ian McDonald prominent cancer surgeon. Dr Henry Garland said it was a "harmless pastime". Both men were enlisted by the FDA to do tests on Laetrile (B17) stating "No satisfactory evidence has been produced to indicate any significant cytotoxic effect of Laetrile on the cancer cell". Dr Ian McDonald died when his cigarette set his bed on fire, Dr Garland died of lung cancer.

      Wouldn't it be nice if we were older?
      Then we wouldn't have to wait so long
      And wouldn't it be nice to live together
      In the kind of world where we belong
      You know it's gonna make it that much better
      When we can say goodnight and stay together
      Wouldn't it be nice if we could wake up
      In the morning when the day is new?
      And after having spent the day together
      Hold each other close the whole night through
      Happy times together we've been spending
      I wish that every kiss was never ending
      Wouldn't it be nice?
      Maybe if we think, and wish, and hope, and pray, it might come true
      Baby, then there wouldn't be a single thing we couldn't do
      We could be married
      And then we'd be happy
      (Sleep tight oh baby goodnight
       Ooh baby sleep tight oh baby)
      Wouldn't it be nice?
      You know it seems the more we talk about it
      It only makes it worse to live without it
      But let's talk about itWouldn't it be nice?

      Mayor Bill de Blasio pledged his support on Wednesday to a series of initiatives to cut tobacco use, proposing to raise the minimum price of a pack of cigarettes in New York City to $13 and vowing to sharply reduce, over time, the number of stores that may sell tobacco products.
      Raising the minimum price of a pack to $13, from the current $10.50 minimum, would make New York the most expensive place in the nation to buy cigarettes, city officials said.
      The goal, Mr. de Blasio said, is to persuade or coerce 160,000 of the 900,000 New York City residents who smoke to stop doing so by 2020.
      In pushing the anti-tobacco measures, the mayor, more than three years into his term, has come to embrace a major public health movement that was closely associated with his predecessor, Michael R. Bloomberg, who made the city a leader in efforts to reduce tobacco use.

      Quitting cold turkey was 25% more effective than gradually cutting down on cigarettes
      Researchers have long sought for answers on the best way to help people quit smoking. Often, it comes down to two options: quitting cold turkey or gradually tapering a smoking habit. But which one works better?
      “A lot of people think that the common sense way to give up smoking is to reduce the amount they smoke before quitting,” says Nicola Lindson-Hawley of the University of Oxford, who led a new study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine.
      But the results suggested just the opposite: quitting cold turkey is best.
      Lindson-Hawley and her colleagues looked at almost 700 people in England who smoked at least 15 cigarettes a day but who were planning to quit. They all set a quit date for two weeks. Half of them were randomly assigned to smoke normally until their quit date, then to stop abruptly. The other half gradually reduced their smoking over the two weeks leading up to the appointed day. Both groups had behavioral counseling, nicotine patches and nicotine replacement therapy from products like gum, lozenges and mouth spray.
      The way the researchers measured success was by looking at smoking abstinence for four weeks after the quit date, and then six months later.
      Those who quit abruptly stuck to it the best—about 25% better than the gradual-cessation group. And 49% of the abrupt group were successful, while 39% of the gradual group were.
      At the half-year mark, 22% of the cold-turkey group were still smoke-free, while 15% of the gradual group were.
      Interestingly, more people said they preferred to quit gradually rather than abruptly. But a person’s preferences didn’t make much of a difference in their success. “Even if people wanted to quit gradually, they were more likely to quit if they used the abrupt method,” Lindson-Hawley says.
      The research didn’t look at other potential forms of smoking cessation, including e-cigarettes, which have yet to be definitively proven as an effective smoking cessation tool. And even though quitting cold was better, Lindson-Hawley says, “the quit rates we found in the gradual group were still quite good.” In future research, she plans to explore the methods of gradual quitting to see if they can be made more effective. “If there are people who really feel they can’t quit abruptly, and they want to quit gradually—otherwise they won’t try to quit at all—we still need to support them to do that.”
