I do have this sad habbit too... +-5 cigarettes a day now... better than previously ...probably for mood alteration purposes. If it wasn't that bad I would probably smoke 30 units a day...I'm quite the pleasure-seeker with a somewhat addictive personnality. Difficult to share this state with my passion for ultra-rationalism ;)... I'm in the hope that technology will provide means to reverse completly the unhealty effects in my lifespan. I had the same kind problem with earphones and a serious alert for my audition when I was younger ;)... being addicted to music too...
