1I could never figure out how to inhale — it was too much damn work! But I did think it looked cool with a drink and in the movies after sex. I never went there, though.
2I had visions of my grandfather dying of emphysema. And I reached a point where I realized I wasn't going to live forever.
3I went to Ireland last year, which has a ban, and was quite frankly flabbergasted. It did not seem to have a negative effect at all in a place where smoking is so much a part of the culture. The restaurants and bars were full of people.

Darin Cline, St. Louis County director of intergovernmental affairs When my father got married to my stepmother, they had to cut a deal. She had to stop smoking and I think he had to sleep on flowered sheets. That was the Seventies. I've never seen my stepmother smoke since. I tried it once, but people said I didn't look cool.
Mike Jones, St. Louis County senior policy aide There was a time when smokers smoked in front of people who didn't. And now people who smoke excuse themselves to go smoke someplace else. So as a nonsmoker, I don't see myself put upon by smokers. There's a whole lot of other behaviors that don't make a lot of sense to me. Like this notion of having a constitutional right to shoot a deer with an AK-47 is insane. I think that all the Kool-Aid drinkers on the Second Amendment are way more dangerous to civilized society than the Marlboro Man. I'd outlaw assault weapons and automatic pistols before I outlawed cigarettes.
