There were worse ones, like cigs endorsed by doctors. Probably impossible to find those now.

I personally thought that Thank You For Smoking was a very intelligent social commentary, but obviously no one really paid attention and the gung-ho cigarette bashing is still rampant. You can smoke and enjoy smoking without becoming a dirtbag or a european who smokes packs a day.

I really like the smell of cigarette smoke and have since childhood.
Wouldn`t go for a man blowing it in my face, though.

I`ve never had a cigarette, but I do enjoy a cigar every now and then.

A cigar and a tall pumpkin ale, now that`s enjoyable.

"We all smoke for enjoyment remember?"

i dont smoke, but im guessing its not that enjoyable anymore with all the people disagreeing and all the adverts about how its gonna kill you, and it even says on the packets..
kinda sucks, like i said i dont smoke, but i feel for people who do...
it must really suck because it used to be for enjoyment, and people accepted it, and now its seen as some big scary sin...
