I am a non-smoker, always have been. Aside from the health consequences and cost, I am also greatly turned off by dirty ashtrays, yellow fingers, and smoker’s breath.
I often find myself - typically when watching a movie - idly wishing I were a smoker so I could do all the cool smoker’s moves: shaking a cigarette out of a pack and placing it between my lips, bending over and shielding the flame from the wind when lighting up, taking a long drag and exhaling sideways while contemplating a thought, casually flicking the ashes while surveying the scenery, etc. etc.
The realities of smoking suck.
I wish it didn’t look so cool.
