Billie's opinions on smoking and its effects

This film features the musings of Billie, a lifelong and passionate pro-smoker. Over several fags she discusses the impending smoking ban as well as her opinions on smoking and its effects.

Billie's views, though marginal, remind us that the Governments' smoking embargo is not welcomed by all. An absolutely superb talking-head documentary about the iniquities of the governments' smoking ban in public places.

N.B.- Billie's meditation applies to any place on Earth, to any nation.

Why do people like to smoke?

I hate the smell of Cigarettes. Why really people want to smoke? Some I think do it because some hero looked very stylish while smoking and then on it becomes a habit. Some do it because there friends are doing it and if they do not smoke, it will make them look old fashioned.

But they do not realize its a nasty habit, hard to get rid of. It leads to cancer and not only the smoker but his or her family is also at risk. So smokers please get away from the smoke.

When it comes to making the choice as to what e-book reader is right for you, the first thing that many people realize is that there is a whole lot of choices.

Perhaps you would like the ability to store up to 3,500 e-books on one device or maybe you would like a reader whose batteries won't die before you are finished reading. Or perhaps you would like one that does not require you hooking it up to your computer every time you would like to add to your library.

Dave Allen - Giving up smoking

Particularly heartfelt routine from 1984 - well, we know it was based on personal experience! Around this time he seemed to be developing the observational side of his act and leaving behind the more traditional jokes.
