Not only does it feel good, Garry... smoking can in fact be good for you.
At university we conducted a simple experiment.
We took 20 live worms and divided them into two groups of 10.
We then placed one group into a glass of pure drinking water and one group into a glass of water through which we filtered the smoke from a packet of B&H Extra Milds.
The worms in the drinking water lived for 7 days, but the worms in the smokey water died an agonising death in less than 30 minutes, proving that if you smoke, you won't get worms...
Or bad for you...
Tobacco drieth the brain, dimmeth the sight, vitiateth the smell, hurteth the stomach, destroyeth the concoction, disturbeth the humors and spirits, corrupteth the breath, induceth a trembling of the limbs, exsiccateth the windpipe, lungs, and liver, annoyeth the milt, scorcheth the heart, and causeth the blood to be adjusted. ~~ Tobias Venner, (1577-1660). Bloomsbury book of quotations.
