Jason has commented on smoking in a few articles. He used to smoke, until the kids came along. Then, he quit.
He does only smoke for roles, but does not go home and smoke.... :finger:

As grannybear stated, he was going to use the herbal cigs, but because they smell so bad, the crew wanted real
cigs used.... :bag:

As thunder stated, he seems to handle the not smoking well ;-)

Thunder, of course he's a grown man and makes his own decisions, that process starts when we're about 4. And I KNOW he doesn't go home to blow smoke in the girls faces (I said the habit was stupid, NOT the man), but it's still a yuck habit, ya still end up stinking by days end (clothes, hair, hands-that's all considered 2nd and 3rd hand smoke-have you ever walked into a casino?). On top of which, I have a gut feeling we would all like to see him stay healthy and attractive for as long as possible, and whether it's for work, or just bumming them in a social situation, physiologically, it's not pretty on your insides, and the long term effects aren't worth the efforts of a few bucks. Whether or not he's a grown man and has the ability to make wise or poor decisions. He quit once, and his body is recovering well from that. To resume the habit is an unwise choice, and I'm not making this up, check with the New England Journal of Medicine, or the American Journal of Medicine, or with the American Lung Association or American Cancer Association. I apologize for ranting, as a nurse/teacher, and a mom of 2 teens, it's what I do. My friend once told me (jokingly) that I need to write a book entitled: The World according to Ellen. I apologize for jumping on you, this is one of my pet peeves, as it hastened my mom's death, and I've seen too much mutilation and death b/c of the damn things. If he can get away with NOT smoking, the better for HIM and his family. ellen

Ah, well it seems while I was ranting, I missed the herbal cigarette thing. Come on, Jason - YOU'RE the star of the show here, YOU do what YOU need to do for YOU, thats what it means to be THE STAR, we all know what a softie you are at heart, which is why we stick so ardently by you, but as your family comes first, you have to come first too (you fly often, remember...when the O2 masks drop, put YOURS on first THEN help your kids, you can't help anyone unless YOU'RE ok), this is the same thing, don't let the crew bully you into smoking regular cigarettes b/c they don't like the smell, potentially taking precious time away from your family). We know you never want to impose or want to make anyone feel bad, but YOU come first for YOU and your family; it has to work that way. If the herbal cigarettes REALLY bother them, then maybe Jackson develops some allergy to smoke, and the character just can't smoke anymore, end of story. ellen

ellen, I know you mean well,* but we make it a point not to lecture people here.** And we certainly don't want to lecture Jason. So, let's not. Thanx!








*I lost both parents and a grandparent to the ravages of smoking.

The crew couldn't have made him smoke the real cigarettes if he didn't want to. So he was obviously fine with it. Ellen, I've never taken one drag out of a cigarette (I've never even touched one), and I think it should be illegal to sell people that poison. But I've also realized that adult people need to decide for themselves. So just trust his judgement, and you'll sleep better. Sorry if I'm too direct (it's probably the viking in me), but if it bothers you so much, don't watch the film...

Like everyone else here I like Jason and love his work but what he does isn't my business. Sorry, I'm afraid this discussion won't get anywhere :-(

The herbal cigs smell worse than the real thing? They must be pretty bad! :gah:

I loved the smell of clove cigs in college. I understand that they were worse for your health than the real thing but we didn't know that then.

So sorry everyone, I DO have faith in him. And I will watch a master thespian at work, but as a clinician, it's just more difficult. Had to plead my case anyway, when something is done and over, you can't change it. When you get another chance, then you can maybe change it. Sorry for hurt feelings or breaking any forum rules. ellen

Thunder, I think maybe ya didn't overstep, but that I did. Again my generalized apologies to everyone, including and I guess especially to Jason (I've seen a lot and it's hard for me to give up on this topic, but I'm really trying here...)so apologies all around. We're all grown ups, no Peter Pan syndrome here, it's everyone for themselves.(?) e

Thanks Angel! I still have difficulties choosing my favourite character though. How can I ever choose between Jackson, Lucius, Mark, Tavvie, and Desmond? :uhoh
