  Tobacco prohibition is coming.  This is how it will happen:

  #1:  By making it illegal to smoke it anywhere in public, work, any type of private vehicle or public transport.  It will start being prohibited in certain areas like your office buildings, then slowly but surely become prohibited in certain public buildings and restaurants within counties and states.  After that, it becomes prohibited in government buildings, and the rest is rather anti-climatic.

  #2:  By raising taxes on it, so fewer people will want to start up smoking, and more will quit as the prices climb steadily upwards.

  #3:  By making it harder to advertise anywhere.

  No, I don't smoke or like the smell of cigarette smoke but that doesn't mean I believe that others have the right to punish someone because they have an addiction.  I used to smoke myself but quit so I know what it's like to go without a cigarette for too long.

  My advice:

  Either quit (yeah, I know it's hard, but it's doable.  And knowing that something can be done is the hardest part.  Why do you think the government is so scared of letting people know what kind of technology they've really got?  Oops.  Maybe I shouldn't have said that...) or find a few trusted suppliers.  I strongly advise against growing your own because the government has some rather sensitive equipment (FLIR (Forward - Looking InfraRed) is just the tip of the iceberg.  Think at least 60 years in advance of what you know they have and you'll start getting the idea.  No, I'm not kidding!  Details on some tech that's been around since 1905 that would surprise you is found on the Repressed Tech page.  It'll give you an idea of what I mean).  If you're gonna quit, the best time to do it is right after you wake up.  Just don't light up.  Find something to keep your fingers busy like chatting on-line, doing e-mails to your friends, or making Web pages.  Even playing vid games or PC games should help keep your mind off lighting up.  If you need more help, just try holding the cigarette in your fingers like you normally would, but don't light it or look at it too much.  If you don't have a cigarette, you can always substitute an ink pen or small marker of equal size and weight.


  I wasn't expecting my predictions on tobacco prohibition to start coming true so quickly, but if you've been paying attention to the news, you'll no doubt see that a lot of this stuff is already happening, mostly I think because of the settlements of the tobacco trials.  Kinda scary.
