    I don't smoke, but flirted with it decades ago. I am surprised it's still popular. It's not addicting, I used a pipe for some six months then dropped it, never had any cravings.

    Instead my habit is tea which I picked up in Japan, I drink upwards of 8-10 cups or more though I quit by noon. There's a comfort in a cuppa, the ritual and such, but I can stop drinking if I need (though it makes me dull and useless). I swear I am smarter by drinking tea (meaning it makes me smarter), and it has documented health and mental benefits so that is a good reason to drink it too. I used to drink coffee but while tea really does wake you up while calming you down, coffee just wakes you up times 10 (or me at least).

    I'm pretty sure this will just make you want to smoke every time someone punches you in the nuts.
    Most of time, when people ask why something terrible happened, they don't realize they are looking for someone to blame.
