Smoking and Liberty for All: Pro-Smoking Quotes
It seems everywhere you turn today there is an attack on our liberty to smoke. Even the fools in Hollywood have jumped into the game. Talk about a blow to artistic integrity. The hypocrisy of it all doesn’t sit well with me. Everyone seems to ignore the Social, Psychological, and Aesthetic benefits to smoking. I am convinced that anyone that is anti-smoking has never sat in a booth of a top shelf restaurant drinking Vino and smoking cigarettes with a Parisian Model Girl. Look into it. You will be pro-smoking too.
If I look back on my young life, my finest moments have consisted of a Custom Italian suit, a full-bodied red, a key to a penthouse suite in my pocket, a bankroll thick like Beyonce and Vida Guerra, a booth in a Michelin starred restaurant, a beautiful girl looking at me, hypnotized and a lit cigarette dangling from my mouth. Moments like those, are to me, what Life is all about (and of course what happens succeeding). The rest is just bullshit.
“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

“A cigarette is the perfect type of a perfect pleasure. It is exquisite, and it leaves one unsatisfied. What more can one want?” ~Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
Is it true that you smoke eight to ten cigars a day?

What does your doctor say about all of this?
My doctor is dead.
– George Burns

“There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible to live without breaking laws.”
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
“I don’t know. Everything. Living. Smoking” – John Paul Sartre (answering the question “What is the most important thing in your life?”)
“When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.’
– Adolf Hitler (The king of anti-smoking campaigns, about as bad as our current government)
“If alcohol is queen, then tobacco is her consort. It’s a fond companion for all occasions, a loyal friend through fair weather and foul. People smoke to celebrate a happy moment, or to hide a bitter regret. Whether you’re alone or with friends, it’s a joy for all the senses. What lovelier sight is there than that double row of white cigarettes, lined up like soldiers on parade and wrapped in silver paper? I love to touch the pack in my pocket, open it, savor the feel of the cigarette between my fingers, the paper on my lips, the taste of tobacco on my tongue. I love to watch the flame spurt up, love to watch it come closer and closer, filling me with its warmth.” luis bunuel
Good food, good sex, good digestion, good sleep: to these basic animal pleasures, man has added nothing but the good cigarette. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic’s Notebook, 1966
I used to smoke two packs a day and I just hate being a nonsmoker…. but I will never consider myself a nonsmoker because I always find smokers the most interesting people at the table. ~Michelle Pfeiffer
“Divine in hookas, glorious in a pipe
When tipp’d with amber, mellow, rich, and ripe;
Like other charmers, wooing the caress
More dazzlingly when daring in full dress;
Yet thy true lovers more admire by far
Thy naked beauties—give me a cigar!”
Lord Byron The Island . Canto ii. Stanza 19.

‘I’VE BEEN doing some sums following the recent medical assertion that every fag you smoke costs you eleven minutes of your life. Let’s take somebody who is aged 100 and has smoked a modest ten a day since the age of 15. That’s 310,250 cigarettes or a total of 3,412,750 minutes of lost time. In more understandable terms, that means this person would have lived an extra six and a half years if he-she hadn’t ever smoked. My question is: would that be much of a bonus?’ Columnist James Whitaker, The Mirror, January 2000
‘OH, I LIKE smoking, I do. I smoke for my health, my mental health. Tobacco gives you little pauses, a rest from life. I don’t suppose anyone smoking a pipe would have road rage, would they?’ Artist David Hockney, Daily Telegraph, July 1999
‘IF I CANNOT smoke in heaven, then I shall not go.’ Mark Twain (1835-1910)
