I have a friend who, at present, is under sentence of death. He has smoked all of his life and recently suffered his second heart attack. He probably won't see Christmas 2011. I sometimes wonder whether it would be an idea to take him around bars and schools telling people how he feels about cigarettes.

There is no point him quitting now, he's a dead man walking.
Ditto on cigarettes. If govs were half interested in saving lives they would outlaw ciggies or at least tax them prohibitively.
