An interesting post... Reminds me of a little anecdote.
I caught up with an old friend today, we're both in our early 20s. He's a pack-a-day smoker, just like he was when we last had any contact.
The effect is really startling, the guy looks a decade older than when I last saw him just a few years back, like a dried up prune.
I'm a non-smoker, so I can't vouch for how hard it is to quit - my only advice for any smoker in any situation is to just try to give it up.
And certainly in a sit X situation, while it might calm your nerves and help you think clearer in the short short term, I'd hate to be hankering for
a smoke once the dust settles on the situation.
But... having said that. It might be an idea for even non-smokers to stash up on smokes, tobacco, and related paraphernalia!
Think of the bartering advantage
