I haven't gotten much done , but it's not important. Not much on my mind lately. Today was a total loss, but so it goes.


Sometimes it's hard to believe the smoking rate is only about 30% in Japan. When you go to some restaurants (especially the izakaya variety) it seems like everyone is lighting up. Despite this, I see more and more non-smoking areas OUTdoors where it's needed the least.


the most annoying thing with smoking in japan is that most of the smokers, especially (young) women don't really seem to smoke but just hold the cigarette in a sexy pose right under your nose the whole time. then when they do smoke it seems that a tremendous amoung of THICK smoke comes back out, i guess some don't inhale??? so i find smoking even more annoying than here in europe, although there is this great (HUGE) cafe where I live in Holland but it is sooooooo smoky it is ridiculous. basically the main reason why i hardly go there.

i used to be a smoker but quit about 3 years ago. i guess they are right when they say that after you quit you become even more sensitive to it.


I quit smoking after my last trip to Japan. I went to one of the JT smoking lounges in Chiyoda-ku, it was so horrible that for days afterwards, I felt like my nose and eyes were on fire. But I recently caved in and started smoking again. I have to quit again, maybe this week. I feel like Mark Twain, who said "quitting smoking is easy, I do it several times a day."
