Dallas bars next on the smoking ban list
By David Webb of Dallas Voice

With the haze mostly cleared from the last battle, itís time to wage yet a second offensive against what many people today consider to be the most annoying of pests ó the public smoker.
When former Dallas Mayor Laura Miller pushed through the anti-smoking ordinance for restaurants and other public places in January 2003, she would have preferred that it included nightclubs, restaurant patios and pool halls. But she realized that component could torpedo her entire ordinance, so she decided to save that fight for another day or for another mayorís agenda.
Fast-forward to 2008, and you have Millerís successor, Mayor Tom Leppert, preparing to take up where she left off.
Leppertís approach will be more likely to appease the business community, which rose up in protest against Millerís plan. Business leaders warned the anti-smoking ordinance would lead to a loss of revenue for Dallas restaurants because smoking customers would quit patronizing them.
The current mayor advocates enlisting the support of cities throughout the region to adopt uniform anti-smoking ordinances that would eliminate the option of customers going to a nearby suburb to do their drinking.
It might make bar customers mad, but what are they going to do? Stay at home and drink? Quit drinking? Nah.
This one is in the bag.
Even City Council members Angela Hunt and Pauline Medrano, in whose districts nearly all of the gay and lesbian bars sit, have signaled they would likely support an ordinance banning smoking in Dallasí nightclubs. Thatís because they know most owners of Dallasí gay nightclubs wonít mind smoke-free zones in their businesses, if it can be accomplished without enraging too many customers. That could be the tricky part.
When Miller proposed her anti-smoking ordinance in 2003, the mayor brought the wrath of old queens (some of whom had formerly supported her) down on her pretty head. It caused a near verbal riot in some daytime establishments as patrons sitting on bar stools angrily downed their drinks, stubbed their cigarettes into the ash trays and loudly called her a name that I canít bring myself to write here.
Even after she backtracked and gave up on the idea of banning smoking in bars, they never forgave her. In fact, I wouldnít be surprised if she continues to catch hell as the debate about the new ordinance unfolds.
But my hunch is that most bar owners will privately, if not publicly, back the more stringent ordinance. Thatís because thereís something Iíve noticed about successful bar owners these days ó and the key word is successful. They donít drink and smoke the way their customers do. Itís a simple rule: The bar owners are there to make money; the customers are there to spend it, and many of them donít like smoke.
If the more restrictive ordinance is passed, it is going to save the bar owners money in air conditioning and air filtration bills and cleaning and maintenance costs associated with smoking ó not to mention the benefit to bar personnel who must suffer through eight hours or more of breathing second-hand smoke.
If youíve ever walked into a bar in the morning before itís been aired out and cleaned up, you know exactly what I mean.
Even if that werenít the case, shrewd business people make sure they stay in step with consumer trends and the direction of political winds. Weíre becoming a smoke-free society
So you may as well get used to drinking your favorite alcoholic beverage without a cigarette because the day is coming when you wonít have the choice inside a Dallas bar.
And thatís not so bad. You needed to cut down anyway.

    What's in a Cigarette? Secondhand Smoke About Cravings
  • There are more than 4,000 chemicals in cigarette smoke.
  • Some of them are also in wood varnish, the insect poison DDT, arsenic, nail polish remover, and rat poison.
  • The ashes, tar, gases, and other poisons in cigarettes harm your body over time. They damage your heart and lungs. They also make it harder for you to taste and smell things, and fight infections.

  • Secondhand smoke causes approximately 3,400 lung cancer deaths and 46,000 heart disease deaths in adult nonsmokers in the United States each year.
  • Secondhand smoke is responsible for between 150,000 and 300,000 lower respiratory tract infections in infants and children under 18 months of age, resulting in between 7,500 and 15,000 hospitalizations each year, and causes 430 sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) deaths in the United States annually.

  • When a craving hitsóit may seem intense. But evidence shows, it will subside in about two minutes. So, itís a good idea to find something else to do during your cravings. Take a walk, go get a drink of water. A memory match game that can distract you and entertain you to help ease you past your craving. Source: American Cancer Society

  • Remember the reasons you quit in the first place
  • Visualize a waterfall washing the craving away.
  • Take a few deep breaths and stretch
  • Put a straw or a cinnamon stick in your mouth

  • Ben Affleck quits a twenty year smoking habit with a little help from his friend. Best friend Matt Damon, who quit smoking with a Professional Hypnotist over a year ago, told Ben all about it. Ben decided it was time to quit, and took his friends advice to use a Professional Hypnotist. "I finally decided to quit smoking when I was going to have a child. I actually went to hypnosis." Now, Mr. Affleck is a non-smoker thanks to Hypnosis and a little help from his friend.

    DeGeneres Uses Hypnosis to Quit Smoking. Admitting that she didn't "look like somebody who should smoke," DeGeneres told her audience, "I work out and I'm very healthy and I like to think I'm a very intelligent person." She added, "My mother had breast cancer. I, of all people, should not smoke... She said of her Hypnotist, "You've helped me tremendously and probably saved my life, definitely changed my life."

    I should have done it years ago. ÖItís amazing I didnít even want a cigarette any more.Ē Matt Damon describing his hypnosis experience to Jay Leno, - The Tonight Show, 12/04
    "As a former smoker, I know how difficult it is to quit smoking. If you are motivated, Hypnosis is a very effective method to help you quit."
    Anne Brackett was 28 and living in Boulder, Colo., when she saw an ad in the paper for a group hypnosis class at a YWCA to help people quit smoking. She was smoking more than a pack a day and thought she'd give it a try. "I didn't think I was being hypnotized," Brackett says. In fact, she thought it was sort of goofy to sit there with her eyes closed listening to the leader say, repeatedly, "You will forget to remember to smoke." But she did just as the leader suggested. "I never wanted to smoke again," Brackett says. Today, 30 tobacco-free years later, Brackett who is 58, lives in Elk Grove and works as a respiratory therapist. "I dismissed so much, and this taught me not to do that," Brackett said. "The problem is that medicine tends to be conservative."
