…is too cool.

Why do you live in Paris?

I like living there because I can smoke everywhere, but it is going to change. Maybe I will move to Greece, because there you can still smoke everywhere.

In the end, there will be just one country left that allows smoking, for all the nonquitters in the world.

Yes, and I will go there. Smoking kills you, but life kills you, and if you don’t want to die, go into a freezer when you are born and nothing will happen to you.

I had the strangest thought reading this. I wonder: have cigarettes and cigarette smokers become scapegoats on which we project (and symbolically punish) our guilt for everything we consume that is bad for us, indirectly hurts other people, but which we can't give up?

I have been excited to see this for months.

and yes smokers are being treated unfairly.
but smoking is cool, so they should be able to handle it.
