I know that I am playing that devils advocate by stating the following...
Tobacco would still be a socially acceptable luxury it if maintained its healthy and cultured relationship with coffee. However, over the years, marketers in the tobacco industry have promoted it to be something else. The average American smoker now likes to smoke while waiting in lines, while driving cars, first thing after waking up in the morning, and so on and so forth. The ceremonious culture has been taken out of the product and a habitual tick has been put in.
What ever happened to meeting for coffee and a cigarette, not smoking a cigarette on the way to a coffee shop for a meeting?
I believe that the excessive nature with which we indulge in tobacco is cancerous. If ceremony can be re-established within the relationship between both coffee and tobacco... than tobacco might regain its once not so demonized name.
But... Coffee and pie is never a bad option.
