"Threedom" at Freedom

<t>TDQ, Loved your post. My real life has been pure chaos since I celebrated bronze. To top it off I. too, had a virus, the first in years, and it was a mean one. Seemed like it was going to last forever but came to a close as all things do eventually. The miracle remains for me that no matter what ...

EU Adopts Tobacco Ad Ban

<t>"In the EU alone, Big Tobacco needs to recruit 500,000 new smokers each year to replace the ones who die prematurely due to smoking-related diseases," said Mr Byrne. ". Can this be accurate? One has to assume the recruitment will be primarily among the young. A ban on advertising will surely help...

Ban of smoking

<t>That was my message deleted, Sten. I didn't read your post carefully enough and thought Norway would be facing something like Alcohol prohibition in the thirties in the U.S. Rereading your post I see that smoking is only going to be banned in all public places. Does that mean people will be arres...

<t>The relapse policy as stated here does sound tough and unyielding. When One thinks about addiction though, any addiction, there simply is no other policy.
