    Enjoyed reading your poem. Managing to stay off the cigarettes. However, reading your poem reminding me of the pleasures of smoking and all that gather in the smoking section.

    A brilliant write extolling the vices of smoking.This wonderful poem SHOULD be printed on all cigarette packets - it would bring home to smokers what life entails for them if they continue with their habit. A 100 - sorry it only goes to 10 Mark, so a well deserved 10 from me. (Report) Reply
