>>>If your educational level is below the average, you are more likely to smoke. If you live in rented or overcrowded accommodation, you are more likely to smoke. Ditto if you do not have access to a car, are unemployed, or on state income benefit.
All I'm gonna to say is this person just described a poor person's life very well. Based on this logic, all smokers would be homeless and unemployed. But not all smokers are minorities eitha. I bet wealthy people on the otha side of the Atlantic smoke too.
And who said all smokers rent out apartments? Last time I checked, smokers live in houses too.
I agree on the point of if I lit up in a joint, it would be no biggie decades ago. But now (and at least for me) if you wanna light up now, it's different. Smoking is so antisocial, you'll be lucky to run into a person with good sense and happens to smoke. It's been a few months since I ran into a different type of person asking me for a cig or a light. I've seen those middle-class smokers in the streets. But I'm ignored by em, and I'm cool with that.
