President Benigno Aquino. INQUIRER FILE PHOTO

MONCADA, Tarlac, Philippines—He is for taxing cigarettes to extinction but cannot himself quit the harmful habit.

Smoking is the only way to relieve himself of work-related stress, President Benigno Aquino III told reporters at the launch of the “Hardin ng Lunas” project here on Friday.

“If I stop smoking, there’ll be nothing to help me decompress,” he said, following a speech in which he encouraged his provincemates to plant medicinal plants and organic vegetables in order to keep fit and healthy.

Besides, he said there was no law yet banning smoking.

Mr. Aquino clarified, however, that he takes care that he does not inconvenience or harm anyone by his smoking.

In his speech, Mr. Aquino reiterated the folk saying, “Kung ano ang itinanim, siya ang aanihin (What you sow, you reap),” in urging residents to sustain and continue replicating the medicinal and organic farms that have been developed in the province through the “Hardin ng Lunas” project.

Planting knowledge

He said his program of government could be likened to the project because what he wanted to plant was something that would yield a better life for Filipinos.

“Let’s plant things that will sustain us so no Juan or Juana de la Cruz will be left behind during harvest time,” Mr. Aquino said.

“Hardin ng Lunas” is a private sector-initiated project that seeks to promote the use and production of medicinal plants and organic vegetables, especially in areas not easily reached by health services.

Mr. Aquino said it is not only seedlings that are being planted but knowledge, referring to the various seminars and training programs that the pilot barangays underwent in the maintenance of herbal gardens and in the preparation of herbal concoctions.

“Health care is not a privilege, it is a right,” he said.

The “Hardin ng Lunas” project is led by Tarlac Heritage Foundation and supported by the Dermatology Department of St. Luke’s Medical Center. It is also funded by San Miguel Corp., East-West Seed Bank and Traditional Medicine Center of the Department of Health.

    Marijuana is a medicinal plant, can one include that in their “Hardin ng Lunas”?

       Decompress…meaning he is hyperactive or restless and cigarette is the pacifier to calm him.

    Anyway why all the paranoia about smoking? The worlds oldest recorded human being died at age 122. She was from France.  Jeanne Calment smoked from the age of 21 (1896) to 117 (1992)

      Besides, having no one to have sex with him, we don’t know the reason.
      Too much smoking makes your junior soft or lulugo lugo, meaning hilo sa sigarilyo.

    health care is not a privilege, it is a right. abnoy says

    what about the freedom of speech which is also a right and written in the constirution. and here you are curtailing that right.

    What are you thinking. punong puno na ba ng usok ang utak mo and you are hallucinating. If you are. There’s a decompression chamber avialable in the states (this is a medical procedure wherein a person who  suffered smoke inhalation is place in this tube and 100% pure oxygen is pump into the tube to make the brain function properly again).
    Resign now and go to the states for you to have this medical procedure.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/UZF4OTGY4BREFE42RXP7FZJKFY Ding

      So, you underwent exactly the same procedure, but it did not work, you’re still PANGIT…you’re admitting that, at sa pagpapalaganap mo ng malicious smirches, ay resulta ng procedure na isina-suggest mo.  Kung effective ‘yan, BAKIT HINDI KA PAULIT-ULIT MAGPA-UNDERGO NG GANYANG TREATMENT?  O tanggap mo nang wala nang magagawa ito sa ‘yo?  Brain treatment kamo ‘yan, so para sa mga may brains ‘yan.

      • pangitbudhiko

        did I say that! I am not admitting to that! I was suggesting that Abnoy should undergo taht kind of medical procedure.

        So at the end meron kang diperensiya, you should also undergo that kind of medical procedure, sa dahilang puno or saturated na ang utak mo ng usok, have this hyperbaric chamber  procedure done to you, you need this one, big time

    Leave the president P’noy do his thing, as long as he doesn’t blow smoke on your face or smell his bad breath. Let him die gasping for air and that is his choice.

    Many years ago, I used to say when my wife and well-meaning friends advised me to stop smoking- “Cigarette is my BFF especially when I am sad, so why should I part with my BFF?”.
    Well, I was in denial then because the only reason why i can’t let go of my vice was because of my weak determination to stop it, not because cigarette is my BFF.
    When I immigrated to US, I found out how expensive cigarettes are in this country. That strengthened my inner resolve to stop smoking. I finally kicked this vice after after so many years of trying.  
    Pnoy can stop that vice, if only if he can gather enough determination and reasons to do so. Otherwise, he will be forever hooked. 
    For students and young smokers who have no jobs or income to finance this vice, high sin tax law is the best panacea to stop them from smoking. 
    Unfortunately, Recto and the chief violator of human rights enrile are the biggest stumbling block for healthy and viceless young generations.

  • regd

    PNoy is an admirer of the smokers philosophy. ‘If you smoke or don’t smoke, you still die’. I’m guessing his balding and intelligent head understands that this habit affects the people around him and the environment. The guy is just helpless or just too dumb to control it.

  • vilmavee

    Penoy is being hypocritical. He smokes yet does not want others to do the same specially the young ones.  Is the message that he brings across is that he can well afford additional tax for his vice?  (After all, he has his inheritance to burn away.)  C’mmon, if you promote something, set an example and walk your talk.  If you cannot do that, then, just be quiet and we will understand.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/UZF4OTGY4BREFE42RXP7FZJKFY Ding

      And, that, you believe, will silence you?  PNoy is also a victim of cigarette smokimg, so that he is showing himself as the example in the evils of smoking.  Being a President, doing the great of what he can for the best of his country, marami pa rin ang gagawin siyang sandigan o sangkalan ng irresponsibilidad ng marming magulang sa kanilang pagpapabaya sa kanilang pamilya.  Tulad nitong si Vilmavee, kung may mga anak ito, bago makilala ng mga ito ang Presidente, halos matured na.  Ibig sabihin, kung mabuti siyang ina,bago mag-mature anga mga anak niya ay nahubog na niya sa kabutihang asal at mga gawi ng kaniyang mga anak, na hindi kayang gibain ng paninigarilyo ni PNoy.  Kung maging alibugha at mahilig magbubuga ang kaniyang mga anak, sarili niyang kapabayaan iyon.

  • Jinhan

    Smoking is known as “Very easy to start but HARD to stop!”  Why?  It is because the sensation of satisfaction (can be synonymous to physical happiness) is so deep that it will be felt to the bones!  So in order that one can stop SMOKING, ONE (he/she) SHOULD FIND HAPPINESS ( sensational satisfaction) THAT JUST NOT FELT TO THE BONES BUT REACHES DEEPER TO THE BONE MARROW!  So with that, the “happiness” felt by smoking will be superseded by “that happiness that is felt to the bone marrow”. Therefore, pushes one to quit smoking which becomes a “happiness” that is inferior.   So the quest now will be on how to experience that “happiness” that reaches the bone marrow that even makes every single cell of the physical body excited!

  • tra6Gpeche

    Tama si Ginoong Aquino. Kung ano ang itinanim ay siyang aanihin. Tulad din ito ng: Ang sigarilyo kapag laging hinihithit, Kanser, hypertension, mahinang puso at iba pa ang magiging sakit! Saying that nothing to decompress except to smoke is a cop-out! Mr. Aquino will show many Filipinos how to have discipline if he can stop that killer habit of  smoking! Cigarettes do not only kill the smokers but also every child, mother, father and friends around him! Your physician will tell you that. Quit it, Mr President!

    I do not believe about smoking addiction at all !!! This is a hell of lot of bulls and rubbish.  I was a chain smoker since age 16 years old ( a packet a day and doubles when I started work) and I quit just like that on December 24 1989 after  28 years.  Hard, difficult, no gimmick medicines or tablets obtained,,,, sheer guts and determination and to lesen personal expenses and most of all my health and family, I achieved my goal.  Simple !  But its your personal problem, its you,, who is going to die anyway if you dont stop, not President Aquino nor your brothers and sisters. So why assault and bombard the president of his vice.  He can afford it anyway. And for stubborn people, make sure get a proper insurance and dont rely on government help and assistance. I hope they make a law on this.  Hahahahahahahaah!!!! I bet many will stop !

    the president is yet again showering us with fruitful words. if words can make a nation rise, we would’ve been a 1st world country already because of all the words and promises this administration has given us. but words are only good if followed by actions and results, which unfortunately we havent seen yet.

        another pointless reply. but as long as you do your job right? exactly like whats happening with the government. it doesnt matter if its right or wrong, as long as you are doing what the president wishes for, its ok.

  • Ommm

    Now we have a total hypocrite for a president. It’s ok for him to force the poor to quit ( who elected him under the illusion he cared about them ),,,  but he somehow exempts himself by manufacturing another illusion his job is so stressful.

    How stressful does Noy presume living in a shanty beside a garbage/dengue filled waterway is? To watch  your “too many children” going hungry and uneducated? To have no job nor even electricity to run a fan? To have no hope of a future?….then not even being able to afford a cigarette to relieve this stress?

    His job may have some special kind of stress…like planning for the nation and discussing issues over lavish luncheons….probably a whole lot of signing papers also…and sitting in cars and planes watching the scenery as he travels…perhaps he even looks out the window of the limo and ponders how poverty is so picturesque…. as he puffs on a smoke….

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/UZF4OTGY4BREFE42RXP7FZJKFY Ding

      Ang hirap niyan lalu na’t kung ikaw ang Tatay nila, lalu na;t kung isa kang amang responsable na alam mong hindi mo dapat isisi sa iba ang paghijhirap ng pamilya mo.  He is planning for the whole nation.  He needs the help of everyone.  He is just helping, he is not taking over the functions of every padre de familia.  Kung natuto kang manigarilyo, alam mo ang kaniyang pinagdaraanan.  You cannot quit smoking overnight.  Pinapayuhan lang niya ang mga kabataan, and with this, giving his ownself as an illustrative example of the evils of smoking. Presidente ka na at gumagawa na ng mabuti para sa bansa ay pagsasamantalahan ka pa ng iba para umangat sila sa pamamagitan ng pagsira sa iyo. Biktima rin ng evils of smoking ang Presidente. He knows and accepts that.   Eventually, he may quit it.  But, that doesn’t give you or any one to continue being remiss in your performance of your individual duties.  Hindi lavish ang $2 hotdog meal ng isang Presidente ng bansa, compared to $20,000 ng sinundan niya. At saka, sobra namang kawalanghiyaan ‘yang isisisi mo sa paninigarilyo ng Presidente ang pagtira ng mga tao sa shanties. Hindi ba kayabangan ‘yang pa-English English ka pa sa pagmamayabang na kunwari nagmamalasakit ka sa mahihirap, habang winawalanghiya mo ang Presidente? Sigurado ako, hindi ka pinabayaan ng mga magiulang mo kaya nakapag-aral ka, eh, gamitin mo naman ang napag-aralang ‘iyan kung gusto mong ipakita ang pagmamalasakit sa iba. Hindi ‘yang gagamitin mo ang ibang tao, para magmukha kang dakila. Aba. eh. napakalaking kaunggoyan ;yan.

    i hope when they raised taxes the revenue is going to decent medical care for the philippino people and not in the pocket of the LP party

    Even if it goes to 100 pesos per stick, he can afford it still.

    But then, those, like him, who are addicted to smoking, who have lesser in life will have to do without. Not talking about the health issues, I’m talking about passing along a law that would not affect some people, but totally affect others.

    how can aquino relieve stress if everybody is watching his moves? unlike ibang politicians who relieve stress by banging other politician’s wife, or renting “nice girls”, aquino is under the microscope. i can understand if he has a hard time quitting but the positive thing is he wants to discourage smoking. it is unfortunate that he’s rich and can afford to sustain the bad habit.

    In re planting –
    May I reiterate my suggestion that hoes, rake, trowel and spade be available for free for those who will request them, probably as a food production project by the agriculture dept. The vegetable seeds (string beans, eggplant, mongo, amargoso, etc) could be provisioned from the BPI. Each city/municipal govt can set aside a public garden sites where individual or group of recepients of the garden implements can register to have his/her garden plot/s. If the source of water is not readily available, the city/municipal government can set aside water repository for the gardeners to use.
