Got to listen to NPR as I took Pokie the VW Jetta out for its first drive of the year today and heard some lamebrain Ph.D explaining that now was an excellent time for the governors of the states to close down the sale of tobacco because that would reduce the number of people going out and so reduce CHINA FLU cases even further below the number of Influenza cases. He didn't seem to understand that nicotine withdrawal can be a real pain and people engaged in it are terrible to be around and this would make domestic violence/rage go through the roof if people couldn't get a fix.
Why don't people who profess to be sociologists ever understand things like addiction and withdrawal?
By the way, it's the same for alcohol. Now is not really the time to quit unless you live alone and like it like that.
