The picture is from the final scene of the 70s version of The Body Snatchers and one of those really disturbing movies that sort of scares me out of my wits. I couldn’t help using the picture for this post because I somehow feel that many smokers must feel this way as they see themselves gradually cornered into kicking the habit. It’s a wonder that smokers still exist as many are almost made to feel that they are commiting a crime against humanity everytime they put a butt between their lips. Obviously, we all know how bad tobacco is and that public health expenditure could be used in other ways, but I also feel that some non-smokers go a wee bit beyond the limit when they expect, for instance, a host to stub out a cigarette in their own home or when a neighbour asks somebody stop smoking in their OWN patio because somehow some naughty, mischevious smoke floated up two floors and then made an agressive dip back to ground level invading somebody’s kitchen. Amazing what some tobacco brands can do!
