Today's one of my favourites of the campaign year; National Smoking Day. I'll be carrying a couple of additional packs of Portuguese Gauloises today and from lunchtime onwards will sit outside the Weatherspoons next to the pavement where every third passer-by usually asks smokers if they've got a spare ciggie. Today is their bonus day; each request will be rewarded with two ciggies and a smile, as we celebrate the world of tobacco.
So come on all you puffers! Do your bit for National Smoking Day, and see if you can give away an entire pack of cigarettes to needy strangers today.
FACT - smokers are sexier, wittier and more fun to be with than non-smokers - it's something to do with our non-aversity to known risks, and our 'live for the day' approach to life
