Tired of being told to quit, put it out, stand outside, have some consideration, think about your health ...? The list of complaints against smokers would take much longer than a fag break to read out, and many of us (even those who don't smoke) have had just about enough of it! The passive whingeing we endure from the self-righteous is enough to have anyone gasping for another ciggie! Leaping to the defence of the smoker, The Daily Mirror's favourite columnist Sue Carroll and non-smoker Sue Brealey take a hilarious and irreverent look at the humble cigarette, its history and its place in life and death, love and sex, fiction and the silver screen, and champions its survival in the face of a modern tide of persecution from the health police. I knew a man who gave up smoking, drinking, sex and rich food. He was healthy, right up to the day he killed himself.' Johnny Carson 'I just hate being a non-smoker, because I always find smokers the most interesting people on the table.' Michelle Pfeiffer
