to fire up a smoke in NYC has now chimed. As of today, it is now illegal to smoke in any public indoor space, including bars. The New York City Indoor Smoke-Free Air Act of 2002
gives further detail as to what defines a public indoor space. That, not including your residential lease that may prohibit as well. As Andrew Jacobs writes, Walk a Mile for a Camel? Not Far Enough Anymore.

Cigarette filters don't want to go away. A sigh of releaf from the smokers except our lovid earth. Not as harmless as the Everlasting Gobstopper, eh.
The word biodegradable doesn't warrant interest from the companies
. The gov should be able to protect us...maybe they sponsor the grassroot
with all the money made.

Smoke Gets In Your...Eyes?
According to Geoffrey Gray in The Village Voice
, a lot of ex-smokers like to...watch. Whether they're pregnant women
, nicotine voyeurs
or just regular, filter-tipped voyeurs
[comes with a pop-up and probably isn't endearing to employers
], it seems that even this intensely physical pastime is becoming virtualized. So be it. But...what does it all mean
? Can smoking really be vicarious?

As a struggling ex-smoker, I applaud these people for the effort. But part of me still wonders if Unfiltered
(a "reality TV" webshow
about 5 teenage smokers) is going to have any impact on teens who smoke.
