Every now and then I give myself a treat and smoke a Camel. Why? Because smoking is so *damn cool*, and if you inhale sharply you'll get a bit high too (oxygen deprivation, no doubt ha, ha). If it weren't so unhealthy, I'd smoke all the time. I take plenty of vitamin C before and after smoking, btw. Damage control...
