Obama Deemed Healthy With Occasional Nicotine Gum Fix

 President Barack Obama has been given a clean bill of health, and even with the occasional use of a nicotine gum his doctor says that test results indicate he’ll remain healthy for the rest of his time in office. Obama, a former smoker, remains tobacco free, exercises daily and drinks alcohol occasionally and in moderation, according to the third physical of his presidency, which was conducted last month. There were times when Obama smoked a pack of cheapest Camel cigarettes.

It was Obama’s first physical since October 2011. His doctor, Ronny L. Jackson, said he was releasing the health information included in a letter to press secretary Jay Carney with the consent of the president.

“The President’s overall health is excellent,” Jackson wrote. “All clinical data indicates that the President is currently healthy and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency.”

In addition to the nicotine gum, which he uses occasionally, Obama, 52, takes a daily Vitamin D supplement to treat a mild deficiency and occasionally takes ibuprofen, a non-prescription pain reliever and anti-inflammatory drug to treat intermittent plantar fasciitis, his doctor said. The president also has taken an anti-malaria pill, Malarone, for the times he’s traveled to areas where the disease is endemic.

Obama, who in previous years blamed his cholesterol results on the plethora of desserts available to him as president, still has elevated levels. At 213 mg/dL, he falls in the range of “borderline high” according to the Mayo Clinic’s website, which classifies anything from 200-239 mg/dL in that category.

At 6 foot 1 inch, Obama weighs 180 pounds and has perfect 20/20 vision. Exams of Obama’s eyes, head, ears, nose and throat as well as neck, were all normal. So too were his neurological, pulmonary, cardiology, gastrointestinal and genitourinary tests.

Other than Obama’s recurrent plantar fasciitis in his right foot, which could explain why he’s been playing less basketball, the president’s musculoskeletal exam was “unremarkable.” The doctor also noted “several small benign skin tags” on his neck, though there’s no evidence of skin cancer or any sort of skin disease.

CRAIG BROWN: U.S. traitor - or Pipe Smoker Of The Year?

When did you last see a pipe-smoker? Even in these days when smokers are gathered on every street-corner, doggedly puffing away, you are as likely to spot someone smoking a pipe as someone wearing spats, or riding a penny-farthing, or yodelling. For 40 years, the British Pipesmokers’ Council ran an award for the Pipe Smoker Of The Year, but they discontinued it ten years ago. The list of past winners — Jack Hargreaves, Frank Muir, Fred Trueman, J.B. Priestley — is marvellously evocative of a bygone era.

Their contemporary equivalents — Jeremy Paxman, David Mitchell, Andrew Flintoff, Martin Amis — wouldn’t be seen dead with a pipe in their mouths. My favourite modern political portrait is Ruskin Spear’s of Harold Wilson, pipe wedged in mouth, his head shrouded in clouds of smoke.

With the death of Tony Benn in March, we may well have seen the last of the great political pipe-smokers. It is easier to imagine today’s party leaders — Cameron, Clegg and Miliband — wearing bowler hats than puffing on pipes. Of all our contemporary politicians, only Vince Cable looks even remotely suited to a pipe, and that is because he has a very old-fashioned face, of the sort that might easily belong to a background soldier on Dad’s Army. 

The modern face is ill-suited to a pipe. This was my first reaction on seeing the photograph of the flaky U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl posing with a pipe between his lips at an observation post in Afghanistan before he was captured by the Taliban. It may have looked good on Biggles, but it simply looks silly on Bowe Bergdahl, almost as though a child has just crayoned it onto the picture, and will shortly be adding a pair of specs, a top hat and a Hitler moustache.

Small wonder that Bowe Bergdahl’s colleagues remember him as a bit of a weirdo and others claim he is a traitor.

In the old days, smoking a pipe was taken as a sign that you were a trusty sort, given to wearing tweed jackets with leather elbow patches while chewing the cud over topical issues in the saloon bar. These days, smoking a pipe signals that you are as nutty as a fruitcake.

Pipes used to be associated with patience, perhaps because they always seemed to be going out. My boarding-school headmaster used to puff-puff-puff on his pipe in the classroom — those were the days! — but he never seemed to be able to get more than three puffs at a time before it went out.

There followed an elaborate process of putting in more tobacco, tapping it down, and then desperately trying to relight it with a noisy stream of sucks. At some stage, a pipe-cleaner might be employed. At last, the pipe would be relit — before, seconds later, going out again. Nowadays, no one has the time for such an exhausting procedure, or for such a high ratio of effort to pleasure.

It was all different in the old days. ‘It is quite a three-pipe problem,’ says Sherlock Holmes to Dr Watson in The Red-Headed League, ‘and I beg that you won’t speak to me for 50 minutes.’Patrick Moore poses with a pipe the shape of a telescope - which he was given for being Pipe Smoker of The Year in 1984

If you love smoking, choose discount cigarettes as they are cheap and available in each online cigarette store.

Ozzy Osbourne Talks About Cigarettes

Ozzy Osbourne's short term memory has been damaged by his past alcohol and drug dependencies. The legendary rocker has always been open about the battles he's faced, and when a fan quizzed him on writing his autobiography Ozzy wasn't shy in admitting he struggled to recollect certain times.

"I can remember the '80s vividly. I think my short-term memory is damaged from all the years of abuse; I don't know what I did four seconds ago but I can remember clearly things that happened when I was a kid," Ozzy revealed to British music magazine Q.

His autobiography I Am Ozzy was released in 2010 and records the Black Sabbath star's meteoric rise to fame, as well as the downside to being in the public eye.

"The '80s was a fabulous decade. I remember thinking 'Wow, this is great. This is going to last forever.' [My wife] Sharon said to me 'You wait until 1990. It'll all change.' I went 'Naah, it can't be that quick.' Sure enough it changed.

"I don't really remember the '90s. I don't know why. My drug addiction and alcohol addiction were absolutely fierce then. I was just going for it full bore, so there was a lot of blackout time," he explained.

Out of all his vices, it's smoking that ranks highest for Ozzy in terms of addictiveness. Before kicking the habit the 65-year-old star remembers that it didn't matter how ill he was, he'd always find the strength for another cigarette.

"I honestly do think if they discovered tobacco today, then it would be right next to heroin. I mean, I haven't smoked for a quite a while now but it was one of the most addictive substances that I ever put in my body.

"Even if I had a cold, chest infection, pneumonia, I'd still smoke, It's a miracle that I stopped," he added.

Ozzy told that his favorite cigarettes are Parliament.
