You Live And Learn

I learnt some shocking news at work today - returning to my desk smelling strongly of tobacco, the woman sitting behind me pointed out that "smoking is bad for you".

I laughed it off, of course, but nagging doubts caused me to look more closely at my cigarette packet, and what I saw there chilled me to the core.

It says "Smoking seriously harms you and others around you".

Good God, the first packet I ever bought said "Smoking while pregnant harms you and your baby", so I assumed I was fine.

If you ask me, the government ought to launch some kind of massive, pull-out-your-eyes-and-burn-them-in-terror level ad campaign to warn people about this menace.
