In the smoker's corner - an update

Remember this post?

I guess I wasn't the only one in the parking garage bothered by the location of the smoking area because today we received notice that, effective February 1, there will not be a smoking area inside the parking garage. Instead, smoker's will have to take their smelly habit outside - in the wind, the snow, and the cold temperatures.

If that isn't motivation to stop smoking, I'm not sure what is. Oh wait, there is also the high risk of lung cancer and emphysemia. And, the effects on your teeth and breath, too. Plus, the expense of it all.

Funny thing, though. I decided to give up my reserved parking spot last week (for other reasons), so I won't even enjoy the benefits as much as I would have.

I was so happy when I got that email. Hurrah! I hated how there were cigarette butts everywhere and how it looked.

Hurrah for the no-smoking. It's about time. I wish that would have gone into effect when I was there and preggers! Oh well, at least it's been established now.
