gemfyre: (Stinking (cigarette) butt)
[Error: unknown template qotd]

I have no issues with nicotine addiction.

What I DO have issue with is the most popular way of imbibing that nicotine - the cigarette (and secondarily, anything that gives off smoke).

Smoke gets EVERYWHERE! Cigarette smoke STINKS and clings and is poisonous. I DO NOT want to have to breathe it in or even smell it, alas, if I choose to breathe in public, I probably will breathe it in. I resent this.

Did you know that cigarette butts make up over 50% of the litter stream in W.A.?? (My source is the latest DEC Environment and Conservation News). They start bushfires. Each is a small morsel of toxic waste and they are often eaten by animals. For some reason a large majority of smokers think it's perfectly okay to just ditch their butts wherever.

Cigarettes are awful. The creation of toxic smoke anyone in the vicinity has to deal with for the sake of an addiction pisses me off.

So much I even created a community for it - [livejournal.com profile] anti_smoking

Read my posts in [livejournal.com profile] anti_smoking if you want to know how I feel.

Heck, the sheer fact that I created that community should say a lot in itself.

Are mimicking. I haven't seen much of them these past few days but this eerie mimicry is becoming more commonplace. This morning I heard a rather good rendition of a tern and a goshawk, as well as human-like murmurs and the usual growls and squawks.

Rhyllis's birthday today, everyone's going into town for dinner.

And someone outside is smoking. Stinky bugger. *chokes* I came here for fresh air, and still find it tainted.

[livejournal.com profile] anti_smoking has 110 members!

Financial forecast graph for this month also looks absolutely stunning. Apparently we are having a party. So be it.

At the moment I am suffering from isolation and lack of comforts induced manic-depression.

I'd show you a photo but CuteFTP expired again. They are just 3 strands with multicoloured bugle beads. Simple but kinda funky. A bit messy and uneven but I'll get the technique as I go along.

I think the wire cutters on the pliers I got with the kit are cactus. They refuse to cut tigertail without a lot of coaxing - causing the wire to be all frayed once it is cut. Now I must invest in some sharp wire cutters. *sigh* Ones that cut through memory wire as well.

*about 5 minutes later*

w00t! Matt does have his bouts of genius. Nail clippers make VERY good wire cutters. *grinz*


P.S. And for those of you quitting smoking - THIS is very nifty.
