"What gets me out of bed in the morning is the prospect of another day's smoking" --- J.R.R. Tolkien
"First Intelligent Usage of Tools by Man, Circa 2,000,000 BC" or "The Big Pipe Theory"
What could one possibly write about Tobacco? People have called it The Tree of Life, The Tree of Hope, The Tree of Peace, The Divine Pleasure, The Sublime Pleasure, The Motivator of Great Minds, The Sacred Plant, The Great Analgesic, The Devil's Weed, and many other different names. Ideally, Tobacco smoking should be a Holy Sacrament, but the pleasure it gives is so intense that many (if not most) people who smoke, usually abuse it on a daily basis.
For those worried about adverse health effects (and anti-tobacco-Talibaners), let me note that nothing has been proven about cigarettes or tobacco in general, except generalities, such as: abusing it/overdosing on it on a regular basis and for a long time, MAY cause anything from minor undesired side effects to total cancer of every organ in your body. There have been studies on American Indians with some of them suckers smoking like my apartment's gas chimney. Total casualties after ~50 years of studies: around 1 case of lung cancer, with a population sample of ~1,000.
The author's feelings about Tobacco smoking, are nicely summarized by the author's favorite composer, Johann Sebastian Bach, in his Edifying Thoughts of a Tobacco Smoker, by Charles Spurgeon (below), a British Baptist preacher, who said: "When I have found intense pain relieved, a weary brain soothed, and calm, refreshing sleep obtained by a cigar, I have felt grateful to God, and have blessed His name.", and by J.R.R. Tolkien (below) with his famous quote, above.
Waking up and realizing you are still alive - while you are not allowed to smoke (via GIPHY)
Next time you try to fight the irresistible urge to enjoy some Tobacco, remember to look at the list of notable people in no particular order below, of people who have enjoyed it.
Precisely because Tobacco is an analgesic and it greatly relieves the tremendous PAIN that most people are in in this horrible hell-hole called Earth, those in power and in control, have banned its use from all public and work-places, under the retarded pretext that it presents dangers to non-smokers via passive smoking. This way, the PAIN of the ones who are suffering can be made greater in the absence of the most efficient analgesic Nature has given man. This tells you a little about what kind of evil beast man is. He always finds new ways to torture his fellow man.
