“People regret smoking!” says quit-smoking product

March 9th, 2012

Regrets? We’ve had a few (our love lives, health, childhoods, finances, smoking and careers…)

We spend three quarters of an hour dwelling on our regrets every week, a study has found.

The most common cause for remorse is not having saved more money, followed by a wish that we had put more effort in at school.

This appeared in the Daily Mail on February 27th, with the taking-the-fun-out-of-it-for-me URL: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2106983/We-spend-45mins-week-dwelling-regrets—Electric-Zebra-survey.html

Electric Zebra, in case you’re unfamiliar, are a company who produce an electronic substitute cigarette. So that they found that the people they surveyed regretted smoking, is surely no surprise. 

That the Daily Mail gave the game away in the URL, however, is a bit of a surprise. I don’t know if this means I’m winning, or that the Daily Mail want to make this game way too easy for me…
