if anyone here from the UK is interested - the govt has a website where people can help choose new (and graphic) pics to add to cigarette packets to aim to reduce smoking. its interesting - http://www.packwarnings.nhs.uk/
3:42 am
Haz1558

Are there any statistics available to show that putting graphics on the packets does reduce smoking?
3:44 am
Atalante

I'm not sure. I know the govt says it "helps", but I haven't seen any numbers. Some of the pics they are showing in that link *must* have an effect - if only to maybe stop people starting smoking. At least, I would hope so. Apparently the survey is based on one that's been used "successfully" in other countries
3:45 am
Atalante

I just think its very good that they are canvassing normal people to help decide what would be effective, if anything
3:45 am
mrpresident

Haz, can you believe the backlash from that??
This week they reported that people are now buying covers for their packets so they don't see the graphics, and even stickers!!
3:46 am
FMitch

I saw a bit on the news re that this morning Atalante, When I smoked and they put all the warnings on the packets it didn't stop me and I don't think pics would - prob cover them up. But it might put off youngsters from starting.
3:47 am
Atalante

I think part of it is expected to be an "embarrassment factor" of having packets with those pics on. But making stickers of the exact shape adn size would be a good new business for someone!
3:47 am
Angelsong

he6?
3:47 am
mrpresident

The smokers are requesting the packs with the least graphic stuff on them and the kids just don't seem to care! I smoked (until my illness prevented me) and I honestly don't think the graphics would have stopped me either way... it is really a personal decision

Atalante - I've looked at the website and voted. Never having smoked I find it hard to understand why anyone would start. If some of those pictures could be of influence, then use them, but people do have selective vision!
3:54 am
Atalante

I've never smoked either ... I really find the concept quite ick! But I do think some of those pics would make me think again if they were on the first pack of cigs I ever bought!

I think for many young people, dying is such a far-off concept that they put it out of their minds. But if their appearance was to be affected.....

My kids are being educated at school about the dangers of smoking and they tell me about their friend's parents who smoke... those kids are so little chance of change... and my kids ask me! "Why are they allowed to make something that hurts people... because it doesn't do anything else???
and I tell them, "you are our future, you need to educate your generation, cause they don't listen to us!"...
4:06 am
Cat9x

Thats wonderful mrp! Education is the best thing to stop kids from never starting. Keep the word out there, and hopefully we can save them. I too wonder why it's allowed to go on.
4:06 am
Atalante

what's good though is that I think govts / health agencies are realising more now that smoking is an addiction, and have better programmes to help people stop, rather than just expected them to do so without aid. we wouldn't expect an alcoholic to stop on their own, or a heroin user etc etc
4:07 am
Haz1558

I think the problem comes in the teenage years. Children can be easily persuaded that smoking is a bad thing, but when they see their friends starting it takes courage to be different. And you're right, it is a huge addiction, Atalante and for many will power is not enough.
4:07 am
Angelsong

li6?
4:08 am
Cat9x

Exactly Atalante! Nicotine is sooo addictive, even in my Moms state, all she talks about is smoking, wanting us to allow her to have one. Its borders on pathetic, that even in her dying state, her addiction is still ruling her.
4:08 am
Cat9x

Very true Haz! Peer pressure often overrides common sense.
4:08 am
mrpresident

I have tried to encourage my kids not to follow the 'cool crowd' of smoking... they understand the danger, but will it really stop them from 'impressing' or 'becoming part of the crowd'... that is what I remember of my experience... what do we do???
4:09 am
Eva

I began smoking when I was 17-before the surgeon generals report. I felt, like most teenagers, very uncool, and smoking made me feel a bit more acceptable. By 20 I was smoking 2 and 1/2 packs a day. At the age of 30 I stopped. It was among the hardest things I have ever done in my life. And it was hard for years, not just the few weeks they say so blithely. But in a way I'm glad it was so hard, because it made it clear to me the level of addiction, and that I could never, ever smoke again. I don't know if anything would have stopped me at the age of 17, except for a peer culture in which it wasn't considered cool.
4:09 am
Atalante

I think I was very lucky in a way when I was young - I had terribly bad bronchitis most of the time, and to smoke would have probably killed me. Good motive not to start!
4:10 am
Cat9x

I know mrp. I grew up hating my parents smoking, I detested it. I didn't start till I ran with a older, "cooler" crowd who smoked. All that I knew or thought, went out the window, I wanted to be a part of the cool crowd.
4:11 am
Haz1558

So basically we need to place all teenagers under house arrest.
4:11 am
mrpresident

so it needs to be unacceptable by any social standard (which is happening with most places being smoke free!) and also helps if health concerns are addressed early! otherwise, ground the bastards!
4:11 am
Cat9x

I too started at 17 Eva, and even now, watching my Mom, it is still so very hard to stop. But I am trying, and I WILL succeed. I pray I do.

Well, Cat, I do hope that you succeed in stopping and that you can influence others not to start.
4:15 am
Eva

Cat-just read back a bit. I am so sorry that you and your mom are suffering as you are. This is a beautiful and hard life, and we all struggle to go about it in the least destructive way....it's hard not to get involved with things (cigs, overeating, whatever)that offer some immediate relief. I think that for me anyway, accepting how hard it was to give the cigarettes up-not expecting it to be anything but hellish for a while, made it "easier", in that I knew what I was fighting, and could also feel appreciative of and compassionate towards myself in the struggle. If I can be of any support (26 years later and not one cigarette!) please let me know.
4:15 am
Atalante

and take all and any help you can get :) I cant imagine how difficult it must be ... but from experiences of people I know, I know you'll be glad you did it!

They dad reminded me that the kids wouls smell it on me and would associate that with me.... well! I freaked out!! Cause I remember some of the best times with my dad and a cigarette hanging out of his mouth!!
How is that for dangerous memories! I actually 'crave' those days and smile when I smell the fresh lit cigarette!! SO SAD!!

Eva

don't be discouraged by friends who tell you it was easy for them to quit. Pretty much everyone I know who said that went back to smoking. Because they really hadn't faced the hold it had on them. So much of what we are taught in the US is that anything hard or uncomfortable is bad and undoable. I can still remember what it felt like to be out of cigarettes and craving,, and go into the store and buy a pack and light up. So hard to find other things in life that are so easily satisfied. That's why they call it an addiction(-: If it didn't feel good there wouldn't be a problem. There were many times in the first few years when I would think "well, x is going on and I just need a cig to get through it". But then I knew that if I could justify 1 I could justify 1,000.

Jera - Had to pop in with a comment. I totally agree with your attitude! And that dishonesty and deceit is present in every media today. We are letting our children's minds be poisoned and their value systems distorted. I realized how much power the media exerts when I noticed my 2-year-old (then) son hitting and acting aggressively after only 3 or 4 days of watching cartoons. Needless to say, no more cartoons after that.

3:01 pm
Babbler

ahaa! England has the St George's Cross, Scotland has the St Andrew's Cross, and N. Ireland has the St Patrick's Cross!
3:02 pm
Babbler

This flag is commonly called the 'Union Jack' and is made up of the above three flags: St. George's Cross, St. Andrew's Cross, and St. Patrick's Cross. The design was meant to reflect the 1801 Act of Union between Britain and Ireland (the Welsh flag was not incorporated into the British Union Flag). The British Union Flag is the official flag of Northern Ireland and is an integral part of the Protestant, Unionist, and Loyalist tradition.

3:53 pm
jeffer

could someone do it with the ma 6/30 's - or give clues?
3:54 pm
Haz1558

ma6/30 m plus that useful au5/16. Then reverse the last two letters
3:54 pm
Haz1558

If you reverse the last two letters, you get another ma6/30
3:56 pm
amandacath

This looks pretty nasty - how many words in all?
3:57 pm
KittyVane

153 alltogether
3:57 pm
Haz1558

There are 153 words - and it IS nasty.
3:57 pm

3:57 pm
KittyVane

3:57 pm
jeffer

ty Haz !
3:58 pm
violinmaestra

sh 5/12- more bashful, and where the hobbits live
3:58 pm
Haz1558

sh5/12 - can be an English county, or someone who is more timid or a type of sewing.
3:59 pm
Haz1558

sa5/18 can either be with the ending of what you do when you find a joke to be funny OR sa plus what your teeth are rooted in.
3:59 pm
jeffer

li 6/27 please
4:00 pm
jeffer

?
4:00 pm
hetty

havethe English county and the type of sewing-- it's the oth two 5/12's
4:00 pm
Haz1558

li6/27 - if you think of a word beginning with f to do with numbers, replace it with the l.
4:00 pm
coli

new boy here
4:01 pm
KittyVane

Hello and welcome Coli :)
4:01 pm
Haz1558

4:03 pm
hetty

4:03 pm
harpjane

ha! I just HAD to type moogi, even thought I knew it wasn't a word. It was very satisfying to type it!
4:03 pm
Haz1558

The sh5/18 is a speciality of teenagers along with rolling of the eyes.
4:04 pm
KittyVane

Anyone have a clue for the other Y-word (I have the one that means a long time ago)?
4:04 pm
Haz1558

Kitty - think of a famous inhabitant of Jellystone Park.
4:05 pm
EasternBlue

Kitty - think of the bear that likes picnics...
4:05 pm
EasternBlue

"hey, hey Boo-boo!!"
4:06 pm
hetty

OOh lovely clue if you know teenagers. I'm a bit out of touch though.Also I've gone through my list again and I think I've miscounted ( news!) so I'm looking for an sh45 as well as this teenage thing
4:06 pm
KittyVane

Thank you EasternBlue
Piknic baskets beware! :D
4:06 pm
Haz1558

Shoulders, hetty
4:06 pm
Vicuna

Teenagers or not, the sh5 means "I dunno."
4:06 pm
shirin

can someone help me with the gu5,20 please?
4:07 pm
hetty

Yes. I ned broad ones and I now get the drift. Also another spelling of the sewing for the 4.
4:08 pm
Vicuna

I can't believe "gurglier" isn't a word! Obviously one stream can be gurglier than another!
4:08 pm
hetty

So, my one lef, thanks Haz, is the sh4/5--I tried taking a letter off my sewing word but it didn't work. . .back to the enable list
4:08 pm
KittyVane

It also won't accept "ugli", which is a fruit
4:09 pm
Haz1558

sh4/5 - take one letter off the sewing one then reverse the last two letters
4:09 pm
Vicuna

Yeah, but gurglier is a lot of letters, so I REALLY wanted it to count! ;)
4:09 pm
KittyVane

there's a strange palm tree, but no fruit
4:10 pm
hetty

Then the sh5/18 is aperfet clue for me. "I dunno nothing!" Thanks both
4:10 pm
Haz1558

Glad to help, hetty!
4:11 pm
shirin

gu5,20?
4:12 pm
hetty

II've sewn all my life but never backwards before. I also now have the last word, thanks to you, Haz.. I know you are glad to help Haz, but like many others I am soooo grateful that you are.
4:12 pm
Vicuna

gu5/20 - binge and pu---, replace with g
4:12 pm
maia1011

4:13 pm
shirin

4:13 pm
shirin

4:13 pm

shirin

4:14 pm
amandacath

4:15 pm

4:15 pm
cat2

4:15 pm
Haz1558

4:16 pm
cat2

4:16 pm
KittyVane

Luckily the longest words are "normal" ones
4:16 pm
amandacath

to say the least! I'm shooting for halfway before list-time, but I'm not sure I'm going to make it.
4:17 pm
KittyVane

I've made it to 87 without the list, but it's not been easy
4:18 pm
cat2

lately I only shoot for halfway..LOL might even make it today, I have 43 so far without BrandyJack's list... sure do have a new appreciation for it!
4:18 pm
shirin

as6,21?
4:18 pm
shirin

25 more to go
4:18 pm
Vicuna

as6/21 - whiter, paler, more of what's left at the end of a fire
4:19 pm
shirin

4:19 pm
Vicuna

My pleasure!
4:20 pm
amandacath

aren't "huri" the muslim equivalent of angels, or the virgins in paradise or something along those lines? They are in German
4:21 pm
cat2

4:21 pm
Vicuna

Huri, huri, Step right up!
4:22 pm
amandacath

If this grid is going to be so nasty, couldn't it at least let us have gargoyle!?!
4:22 pm
Haz1558

It's full of promising words which don't materialise.
4:22 pm
Vicuna

It would be only fair.
4:22 pm
shirin

fi7,44?\
4:23 pm
shirin

nevermind
4:23 pm
shirin

go5,18 andgo6,24?
4:24 pm
shirin

nevermind again
4:24 pm
Haz1558

go5/18 - describes something sticky, then comparative for 6/24
4:24 pm
shirin

thanks haz
4:24 pm
shirin

how about the he6,27?
4:27 pm
Haz1558

he6/27 - add the birthplace of Michael Jackson, but replace the sometimes vowel at the end with a proper one.
4:28 pm
Haz1558

Or, if not familiar with that, a man's name (Mr Numan, Mr Coleman, Mr Player the golfer)
4:28 pm
amandacath

Haz, why do you know where Michael Jackson was born?
4:28 pm
Haz1558

Because I retain all sorts of useless information in my head.
4:29 pm
shirin

thank you, I didnt know the mj one, but I live near a street named after the golfer
4:29 pm
Haz1558

It's not that I'm a fan of his!
4:30 pm
amandacath

Now that I've looked it up, I'll probably waste a few brain cells retaining it too ... grr
4:30 pm
Haz1558

Sorry!
4:30 pm
shirin

its ok if you are
4:31 pm
amandacath

Oh well, they can make friends with the other brain cells retaining useless knowledge
4:31 pm
shirin

poor guy. I feel sorry for him to have had such a life to such a sad ending to his story so far
4:32 pm
shirin

sorry, I just reread my last setence and it doesnt make sense at all!
4:32 pm

4:32 pm
EasternBlue

Movieman - and odd words I'm sure they'll be...this grid has some whacky ones...
4:33 pm
KittyVane

Hello again Movieman!
4:33 pm
amandacath

Hi movieman! Christopher's b-day today? That must have been a fun week on the set, what with Mr. Mckellan's being a couple of days ago
4:33 pm
Haz1558

Hello Movieman!
4:33 pm
movieman

And talking about Jacko, I'm still a fan of his music, but nowadays I find myself leaning more and more towards Prince........
4:34 pm
monkeeboi

hi guys...are there any my words?
4:34 pm
amandacath

Prince rools!
4:34 pm
movieman

Yep, Chris Lee is 84 today......
4:34 pm
Haz1558

Don't lean too far, you'll knock him over. He looks very frail!
4:34 pm
EasternBlue

monkeeboi - not that I know of...but I still have a quite a few words to find...
4:34 pm
Haz1558

Not a my word to be found.
4:35 pm
amandacath

Michael Jackson or Prince, Haz? I think Prince is tougher than he looks
4:35 pm
monkeeboi

thx
4:35 pm
Haz1558

I was thinking of Prince but neither of them are particularly strong looking specimens of manhood!
4:37 pm
shirin

any clues for the ma6,24 and the ma6,27?
4:37 pm
amandacath

True, but I do find Prince strangely erotic, in his own princely way
4:37 pm
shirin

I also need the lo5,14 and lo6,24 if anyone would be so generous.
4:38 pm
movieman

lo5/14 - rhymes with go5/18.....
4:38 pm
Haz1558

There are two ma6/24 - one is used to reduce vegetables to a pulp, the other is an old-fashioned golf club. ma6/27 is French for skinny - think of a French detective and remove the t at the end
4:38 pm
movieman

lo6/24 - more than a lump of wood......
4:39 pm
shirin

cool, thanks
4:39 pm
ShadeEagle

any help with the gr 6/36?
4:39 pm
EasternBlue

off to make dinner...I'll be back later...
4:40 pm
Haz1558

lo5/14 - three letters - English toilet, followed by start of seeing body part.
4:40 pm
movieman

gr6/36 - 2 matching syllables.....
4:40 pm
shirin

I have the one to reduce veggies, but I have no idea about golf nor French:
4:40 pm
Haz1558

gr6/36 - gr plus a vowel, then repeat it.
4:40 pm
amandacath

origami doesn't work either, unfortunately
4:41 pm
movieman

The golf club sounds like a slang term for m***** potatoes.....
4:41 pm
EasternBlue

shirin - ma 6 - for pulverized potatoes....the one who does the pulverizing
4:41 pm
Haz1558

The golf club one - take the ending off the vegetable and replace it with two vowels.
4:42 pm
amandacath

are there any gh's?
4:42 pm
movieman

nope!!!
4:43 pm
amandacath

thank you, movieman, for that bit of good news
4:43 pm
Haz1558

The ma6/27 could also be formed by reversing some letters of the ma4/7 wise men and adding two letters which normally indicate 'again'
4:43 pm
ShadeEagle

......uh, that word doesn't exist in the puzzle.
4:44 pm
Haz1558

Which word ShadeEagle?
4:44 pm
ShadeEagle

the gr 6 / 36 you gave me a clue to
4:44 pm
movieman

ShadeEagle - the gr6/36 has 2 syllables that sound like the past participle of "grow".....
4:45 pm
Haz1558

It's gr plus the last vowel, then gr plus the last vowel. It's there.
4:45 pm
amandacath

It does, ShadeEagle - I had to look for quite a while, too, but I finally found it. Repeat a syllable twice
4:46 pm
shirin

thanks, those were good clues
4:46 pm
ShadeEagle

....oops, there it is.
4:46 pm
Babbler

fanfare please, while I enter my last word.....
