    There is this guy named Mike Evans who reports all the Hollywood Gossip every morning on the local Radio station,,,,,,,Anyways,,,,

    He said: "Did you know that Barok Obama is a closet smoker?",,,,,"That won't go over to well in the white house since it's a non-smoking place!",,,,,,ummm no i didn't know that!

    But then he said,,,"It worked out somehow for Laura bush who reportedly smokes a pack a day" ,,,just a little un important gossip,,,,,,,lolol,,,S

    I heard this before about Obama, and Laura Bush I had known about.
    However, I heard that as a condition of his running for president, Michelle Obama read him read him the riot act about the smoking and said she would only support his run if he put an effort into becoming a non-smoker. So I believe he's struggling with that as well. Talk about pressure...

    Cigarettes are a horrible addiction. Obama is using nicotine gum, as I am. I hope we are both able to make it.

    This morning I went to the cardiologist's (a huge office) for a carotid artery test, echo--had stress test last week--all's perfect. Anyway, as I was leaving the CARDIOLOGIST'S office today, a few of the CARDIAC NURSES were gathered right outside the door, at the beginning of the parking lot, puffing away. It almost choked me to walk through that cloud of smoke, Ironic, right?

    Yes cigarettes are horrible to quit but at least we have medical help now like the nicotine patches, etc. My husband quit smoking in 1992 and I believe if he had continued smoking, he might not be here today.

    He feels better in every way.

    My daughter works for the Amercan Cancer Society and as a requirement for her job had to quit cold turkey. She did it with welbutrin.

    Her boyfriend isn't allowed to smoke around our events, nor are the volunteers.

    My sister, who lives on disability finally gave it up when she ran out of food and cigarette money this month.

    Laura Bush is a smoker?? Is that true?
    She does NOT seem like she would smoke at all.
    Obama- eh, doesn't surprise me that much. I guess when we don't see someone doing it - we assume that they don't.

    We know Bill Clinton does - or cigars anyway...LOL
