When it comes down to Harry and Carl Philip, I think we're looking at two different kinds of attractiveness. By appearances, Carl Philip is definitely very cosmopolitan and a sharp dresser and the epitome of a proper gentleman. With Harry you get pure masculinity, outdoor ruggedness and exuberance to the max.

Harry comes out on top though, with me, when it comes to personality shining through what we see of him.

At the least, I would hope that Harry would switch over to electronic cigarettes. All the nicotine one wants without the gazillion chemicals that lead to heart disease and cancer.

Quitting smoking really is quite easy according to Mark Twain. He's been quoted as saying just that because he did it twice a day. Although far outweighed by the negative effects of smoking tobacco, there are health benefits.

I think if he wants to stop smoking then he'll have to quit drinking too.

Umm, why? I am assuming you are referring to alcohol. If one is out to dinner one can eat, drink and smoke. At a party, they eat, drink and smoke. Dinner at a friends place, they eat, drink and smoke (albeit outside on the patio). To call for him to give up drinking is a bit on the nose. Those who no longer smoke seldom no longer drink as the one has nothing to do with the other.

Or perhaps I am totally off base on this and you find drinking alcohol as abhorrent as smoking cigarettes.

Actually, as a person that has switched over from tobacco cigarettes to electronic cigarettes, I can attest to the fact that certain things that smokers do are automatic triggers for lighting up a cig. First cup of coffee, sit down on the telephone, after dinner smoke. The list is endless. Drinking alcohol is definitely a trigger for smokers.

I don't think that Harry is a really at risk though with his smoking and drinking and whatever. He seems to be more of a social user more than having a cig hanging out of his mouth every five minutes or so.

^ I think it'll take quitting drinking to quit smoking. the only time he's been seen smoking, was going out to a pub. drinking is definitely a trigger for him.

He's nearly 32 years old. I think he can make the decision of quitting smoking and/or drinking by himself just fine.

That is a given Empress Merel. If Harry decides to quit for any other reason than for himself, the chances of it being successful is slim to none.

The link doesn't work. Nevertheless, Harry's back in Britain and no doubt planning his birthday celebration for the fifteenth. Hope he has a wonderful time.

And I happy birthday to you, Harry! It doesn't seem that long since we saw you as a toddler, trying to play the piano!

I disagree. A different article posted on another thread ("Royals who smoke" or something like that) claimed that Harry actually smokes a pack a day, which qualifies as "heavy smoking" in my opinion. He's also been smoking since he was 15.

That other article also quoted a "friend" who claimed Harry hadn't quit yet because he didn't really want to. The article also mentioned a story about Camilla wanting to take Harry to see an Indian guru who allegedly helped her quit.


PS: After writing this message, I realized that the article Curryong linked appears to be the same I mentioned above.

I have to admit that I didn't read the article. If Harry does smoke a pack a day, that is a pretty serious addiction to nicotine or will soon become an addiction to nicotine. I've read reports where its been stating that overcoming the addiction to nicotine is far worse than overcoming an addiction to heroin.

The most important factor that remains is that Harry, himself, personally has to want to quit in order for it to actually work. I know with me, the electronic cigarette is a replacement (and comes in some really, really nice flavors such as Irish Creme) but should I want to wean myself off of nicotine, I can gradually do that by lowering the nicotine content in the cartridges over time.

how much of those articles have truth in it? a pack a day would mean there would be several photos of him out and about smoking right now. he's only been photographed smoking a year ago. I'm not saying that only photos can be proof, because he could still be smoking more than we know behind closed doors. but the whole camilla is trying to help him with quit smoking or helping him find a decent lady articles , are questionable. a pack a day rumor sounds exactly like the binge drinking rumors today.
