Smoking is a terrible habit. It kills tens of thousands of Americans each year. It’s expensive. And, let’s face it, it is repulsive for a non-smoker to kiss a smoker.
That being said…
In my circle of friends, every time we get together and go to a bar/club and have a few drinks, everyone is looking for a cigarette to burn (including me). These folks don’t smoke during the week, they don’t smoke when sober, and they sure as hell don’t usually buy the things. But they are always looking for a smoke when the buzz kicks in.
Why is this? Why does a beer-buzz = a need for a cig? Is it because the depressant effect of alcohol begs for the counterweight of a stimulant like nicotine? Is it a social thing? I don’t know.
All I know is, Budweiser and Marlboro should agree to some sort of symbiotic arrangement where 12-packs are sold with a pack of smokes included. This would surely save some time at the check-out counter…Powered by Sidelines
