I smoke on occasion, but have never become addicted.

Like others here, I enjoy the occasional cigar -- I also have taken up the pipe, as it provides a cooler, cleaner smoke than many other methods. It also allows me to smoke just the amount of tobacco I wish, since pipes go out very quickly if not tended -- so if I just want a few puffs, I can do that without waste.

I smoke only socially, and until recently only outdoors. This means that I only smoke when it's warm out -- glad I'm not addicted, or the Minnesota winters would be a killer... Other than outside, I smoke once a month when I meet with a writer's club: they all smoke cigars, and I find it intollerable unless I join them. This is analogous to listening to someone else eat cereal: it's only bothersome if you aren't eating. :)

I support smoking bans in restaurants: I'd rather taste my food than my neighbors sidestream smoke. However, the smoking ban in bars is amusing -- you can sit on a stool and kill your liver, but don't dare light up a smoke! (Of course, I know it's for the employees). I don't typically smoke in bars anyway, for most have voluntary bans on cigar and pipe use -- so it doesn't affect me; still funny though. :-P

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
