<<< Ashitaka-Cigars and Guinness as my poison.. Better than whores and gambling. >>>
hey! what's wrong with whores? or gambling?
I like the smell of a quality cigar...my great great aunt Tillie used to have my father buy her one every year on the anniversary of her husband's death(and my father the elder would do this for her) and she would light it and burn it in an ash tray like incense. My grandfather smoked a pipe. I have very fond memories of the scent of good tobacco. And the only thing I ever smoked in my life was a cigar! I was at a BrewFest and there was a cigar booth and the foreigner who was selling them gave me one to try---he thought I was cute. So I did. I didn't mind it---but it made my breath stink horribly for days. And at the time I was a regular pioneer and my partner and I puffed on it out in the parking lot! I felt no guilt whatsoever---kinda the same way I felt the first time I had sex when I was still technically 'in' too...(hmmmmmm....)
I always liked the smell of clove cigs in the 80's. But I heard they were wicked on the lungs.
My father in law started smoking cigars after quitting cigarettes for 20 + yrs about 3 years ago and just found out he has a spot of emphysema on his lungs because of it. I don't think the tobacco is the worst thing, I think all the crap they put in the smokes nowadays is what kills people. Just like after thousands of years of wine drinking all of a sudden NOW it is bad for pregnant women to do? yeah right.
I don't smoke, my husband does not smoke. We both have allergies, asthma and I get migraines. But I have dreamed I smoked. And I would not be totally against trying 'alternatives' to tobacco....wink wink.
Guinness is the only thing TO DRINK!
(I like a black and tan made with Bass Ale....mmmmmm mmmmmm)
