To cease smoking is the easiest thing I ever did. I ought to know because I’ve done it a thousand times. ~Mark Twain
One thousand Americans stop smoking every day – by dying. ~Author Unknown

Tobacco is a dirty weed. I like it.
It satisfies no normal need. I like it.
It makes you thin, it makes you lean,
It takes the hair right off your bean
It’s the worst darn stuff I’ve ever seen.
I like it.
~Graham Lee Hemminger, Tobacco
A nonsmoker is forced to find food, but for a smoker breakfast can be a cigarette and a cup of bad coffee. ~Brock Fiant
He who doth not smoke hath either known no great griefs, or refuseth himself the softest consolation, next to that which comes from heaven. ~Edward George Bulwer-Lytton, What Will He Do With It?
Please don’t throw your cigarette butts in the urinal. It makes them soggy and hard to light. ~Author Unknown
The best way to stop smoking is to carry wet matches. ~Author Unknown
Perfection is such a nuisance that I often regret having cured myself of using tobacco.
If alcohol is queen, then tobacco is her consort. It’s a fond companion for all occasions, a loyal friend through fair weather and foul. People smoke to celebrate a happy moment, or to hide a bitter regret. Whether you’re alone or with friends, it’s a joy for all the senses. What lovelier sight is there than that double row of white cigarettes, lined up like soldiers on parade and wrapped in silver paper? I love to touch the pack in my pocket, open it, savor the feel of the cigarette between my fingers, the paper on my lips, the taste of tobacco on my tongue. I love to watch the flame spurt up, love to watch it come closer and closer, filling me with its warmth.”
Never slap a man who chews tobacco
Willard Scott quotes
Tobacco: Aromatic means of lining the pockets of the manufacturer, the lungs of the consumer and the boxes of the undertaker- Author Unknown
I find myself fascinated with the leaf my self. This could be the likeness its forms take to wine, scotch, and other fine flavored things. Like you I’m after knowledge but a bit more of the specific type. That of what I theorize to be a “social gentleman”. Not there yet I hope that through my fascination of tastes and the processes that beget them I’ll come to a greater understanding of people and meet with that title 🙂 Cheers and good luck in your pursuit of knowledge.
