Another found object on my morning walks. An empty cigarette packet.
Recently Australia made a first in cigarette packaging. It forced Cigarette Companies to use plain packaging and remove their brand names.
As a non smoker it has never affected me but this empty packet did catch my eye.
Here you can see what one looks like and I guess it will be coming your way soon.
How things change.
In the 50’s, 60’s 70’s it was so cool to smoke. Now it is virtually a criminal act.
I can imagine the owner of this package throwing it away as soon as they could. I wonder if it will change their smoking habits.
For the smokers out there I have never made any judgement on you smoking. It is personal choice. However even when it was so “cool” to smoke I wondered why anybody would want to have that stuff going into their lungs.
Still I do think as we were coming into this world all of us were given something we have to confront in this lifetime.
Cigarettes, alcohol, food, weight, gambling, drugs, sex, money, power, tv, gaming, etc., etc.
All the stuff the movies are made of……. I believe it’s called LIFE.
Maybe here are a couple of alternatives…..nature, learning, exercise, pets and animals, reading, travel, hobbies, sport, love, joy, happiness……you can add more….
…..anything that makes you “feel” good.
