    Of course, I don't smoke. Having been stupid enough to start when I was 16, I was lucky enough to be able to stop (with the help of a prescription drug which binds to nicotine receptors). There are plenty of terrible things in this world, and smoking is near the top of the list. But it's a versatile quote.
