Your clothes smell heavily of clothing den

Your clothes smell heavily of clothing.  Your den is filled with low-hanging palls of fresh air.  The only rattle in your car is the sound of toll change in the ashtray.  The absence of telltale tobacco stains on your shirt collar tells the tale – you’ve licked the smoking habit.  ~Robert Brault, 1973, www.robertbrault.com

What a weird thing smoking is and

What a weird thing smoking is and I can’t stop it.  I feel cosy, have a sense of well-being when I’m smoking, poisoning myself, killing myself slowly.  Not so slowly maybe.  I have all kinds of pains I don’t want to know about and I know that’s what they’re from.  But when I don’t smoke I scarcely feel as if I’m living.  I don’t feel as if I’m living unless I’m killing myself.  ~Russell Hoban, Turtle Diary, 1975ch 7, CTO
