Smoking quotes page 2

cigarette.

I'll go back to comedy clubs when they get a real no-camera policy, the same way they did
with smoking.

around the house.

Nonsmokers - this is for you and you only. Ready? Nonsmokers die every day. Sleep tight.
You see, I know you entertain some type of eternal life fantasy because you do not smoke
cigarettes. May I be the first to pop that little fucking bubble of yours? And you know what
doctors say? "Shit, if only you smoked - we'd have the technology to help you." It's you
people dying from nothing that are screwed. I got all sorts of neat gadgets waiting for me,
man: oxygen tent, iron lung.
Bill Hicks

Smoking cures weight problems - eventually.
Steven Wright

The public health authorities never mention the main reason many Americans have for
smoking heavily, which is that smoking is a fairly sure, fairly honorable form of suicide.

blowing in my face all night.

We all know smoking is bad. I know I'm going to quit someday, if I thought I wasn't I'd quit
now.
Dylan Moran

It's a great country, but it's a strange culture... This has got to be the only country in the
world that could ever come up with a disease like bulimia; gotta be the only country in the
world where some people have no food at all, and other people eat a nourishing meal and puke
it up intentionally. This is a country where tobacco kills 400,000 people a year, so they ban
artificial sweeteners! Because a rat died! You know what I mean? This is a place where gun
store owners are given a list of stolen credit cards, but not a list of criminals and maniacs!
And now, they're thinking about banning toy guns - and they're gonna keep the fucking real
ones!
George Carlin

My religion prescribed an absolute sacred rite of smoking cigars and drinking alcohol.

always carried a jewel-studded cigarette case in which, instead of tobacco, were carefully
placed several mustaches, Adolphe Menjou style. I offered them politely to my friends:
"Mustache? Mustache? Mustache?" Nobody dared to touch them. This was my test regarding
the sacred aspect of mustaches.
Salvador Dali

Chuck Norris jokes

This very night I am going to leave off Tobacco! Surely there must be some other world in
which this unconquerable purpose shall be realized.
Charles Lamb

Let's do what it takes to bring teen smoking down. Let's raise the price of cigarettes by up to
$1.50 a pack over the next 10 years with penalties on the tobacco industry if it keeps
marketing to our children.
Bill Clinton

If you think that one individual can't make a difference in the world, consider what one cigar
can do in a nine-room house.

didn't take those tobacco executives long to find new jobs, did it?

It takes a lot of dedication to quit smoking, and whether you give up for good on your first
try or have to give it a couple of tries - just keep swinging at it and you will succeed.
Harmon Killebrew

Smoking I find the most ridiculous of all the varieties of human behavior and practically the
only one that is entirely against nature. Can you imagine a cow or any animal taking a
mouthful of smoldering straw then breathing in the smoke and blowing it out through its
nostrils?
Ian Fleming

Habit is stronger than reason.
George Santayana

To some, the cigarette is a portable therapist.
Terri Guillemets
