Smoking. Its a personal choice and people who choose to smoke are well aware of the dangers.  Its not my bag but I dont judge those whose bag it is…  its your call.  Here are a few statistics about smoking:

  • Smoking is a primary cause of lung cancer.
  • Around 40,800 people were diagnosed with lung cancer in the UK in 2008.
  • Around 35,260 people in the UK died from lung cancer in 2008.
  • In 1974 45% of adult smoked cigarrettes.  in 2009 that figure has declined to 21%.
  • Treating smokers costs the NHS £2.7bn a year compared with 1.7bn 10 years ago.  (Its argued smokers pay £9bn a year in tax in the UK.)
  • 95.3% of all statistics are made up. (but only this one out of the last 5 of the above is.)

As I said its not for me to tell anyone how to lead their life – I like the odd drink or two and im sure some similar stats could be produces for those.  Dont worry or ill produce a set of stats for stress!


A Design Classic

The Adidas Samba I’ve been meaning to buy some new trainers for quite some time, I got these  Adidas Sambas a few months back and I love them!  The plan was just to wear  them to play five-a-side footy but in the absence of any other decent trainers in my  life i tend to wear them most of the time.
I keep looking for some old skool classics but I cant face paying over £50 for what  should be a old classic, The main problem is I remember when you could get a pair of suede Gazelles for £30…   Everytime I go into Oxford I have a look for some ‘proper’ trainers only to be greeted with a swarm of pilmsols.   kids eh!
