As a fully addicted vaper I could entirely leave raw tobacco products behind if the government doesn't fuck with vapping too - which it seems they are and that does freak me out. But I do discretely enjoy a Kool or two once or twice a week just to get the fullest nicotine kick I can. (I keep a pack and lighter secreted from my wife in a small secret pocket in my back pack.)
But is smoking cool? Yeah, I still think so. And it's fun. That's why cigarettes shouldn't be banned - because they're cool and fun. What they should ban are big tobacco companies and let small growers grow tobacco and let then make and sell chemical-free high nicotine (weed optional) ciggies.
Too many regulations for my liking anyway even in Tokyo which used to be a smokers' paradise. No smoking on the sidewalks, smoking closets in McDonald's closing, no smoking bars? WTF? Cars without ashtrays??? Sheeeit.
