 To the disappointment of the nation's yellow-fingered campaigners for smokers' rights, the celebrity chef has finally decided to pack in the cigarettes, telling me that he has been off the dreaded weed for a month.Disappointing news for the pro-puffing group Forest, since "the squashed Bee Gee" (Gordon Ramsay's words) has been one of its most outspoken patrons ahead of this summer's ban on smoking in public places."I've got to say it hasn't been nearly as bad as I thought it would be, I'm doing fine," Wozza tells me."It hasn't been like the last time when I stopped for a few weeks before I ran the London Marathon. I felt absolutely terrible then." (He staggered from the finishing line to The Savoy for champagne, a chip butty and a ciggie; he collapsed.)Worrall Thompson was speaking at a dinner in his restaurant Notting Grill to promote the sweetener Splenda; he avoids sugar and has been watching his health of late, having been diagnosed with the condition Syndrome X, which increases the risk of developing diabetes."This doesn't mean I'll stop supporting Forest," he added. "I firmly believe that if someone wants to smoke, that's their decision."Worrall Thompson was a renowned scrounger of cigarettes, so if smokers are looking for a positive, they can at last stop gripping their packets in his presence. Every (smoke) cloud...

Your second point ? the proposal to raise cigarettes taxes across the nation ? would probably reduce smoking rates and increase the health of those who could not afford to keep smoking. However, I doubt it would reduce the gang-related problems. It would merely export them to the rest of the US. Smugglers would still import cheap cigarettes and their market would be all 50 States. It is very difficult for law enforcement to police smugglers when the smuggled product may be legally used (e.g., if a policeman sees someone smoking dope, he can bust him for breaking the law. However, if a policeman sees an adult smoking a cigarette, he has no way to know if the cigarette was legally purchased or illegally purchased). BTW, I am not sure that those who say smokers consume more than their fair share of government services are correct. Sure, they are less productive citizens (studies have shown they take more sick days than non-smokers) and usually die sooner. However, this also saves the government significant money since smokers collect much less in Social Security benefits than non-smokers because they die earlier. Of course, this leads to your last point.

Allan M. Brandt’s “buy cigarettes Century,” a fat chronicle of the rise and fall of the cigarette in the 20th century, delivers that same ruthful stare. Brandt, a professor of the history of medicine at Harvard Medical School, canvasses giant chunks of terrain here — the culture, science, politics, law and global spread of the discount cigarettes, to cite just his section headings — without ever pausing to examine the central, vexing paradox of smoking: that in return for death, cigarettes give pleasure. Justifiable pleasure? Of course not. What Kant deemed “negative pleasure”? Perhaps. But pleasure nonetheless. Smokers, in Brandt’s view, are midwifed by an array of potent forces: ferocious tobacco advertising; peer pressure; cultural aesthetics (i.e., the imitable artfulness of Humphrey Bogart cupping a smoke); the addictive properties of nicotine; the tobacco industry’s pernicious campaign to obfuscate the perils of smoking; youthful longing for easy rebellion; and even, as evidenced by the boom in smoking after World War I, the scalding stress of trench warfare

But the cigarettes online itself, outside of its chemical components, gets scant credit. “One must not forget,” Jean Cocteau once wrote, “that the pack of cigarettes, the ceremony that extracts them, lights the lighter, and that strange cloud which penetrates us and which our nostrils puff, have with powerful charms seduced and conquered the world.” To be immune to those charms is naturally Brandt’s prerogative. To refuse or fail to acknowledge them in a history of the cigarette, however, is more problematic, and suggests the question: Is a cheap cigarettes sometimes just a cigarette? Or does the totality of its meanings — up to and including its flavors, fragrance and neurological kick — stem from a cultural moment, a peculiar and corporate-engineered hinge in time and place?
