No Smoking

A rule for self-discipline and statement of will

Smoking is prohibited within all Damanhurian territories for everyone, including guests. It is the only ban stated in the Constitution of Damanhur. This no-smoking policy has been in place since 1975, when the founders chose this as an exercise of self-discipline and to promote consideration not just for oneself, but for the others and the environment. On an individual level, Damanhurians make the conscious decision to not smoke (which they view as an ephemeral pleasure) in favor of maintaining good psycho-physical health. Abstinence from smoking is a perfect reminder of the importance of refining one's self-control and avoiding excessive behavior of any kind.
