Hand, you're not american right? I think people with a more european perspective (I'm including Montreal in this) see smoking differently.
I was immediately eviscerated in the one-offs thread, so I didn't say this there, but there was definitely something kind of attractive seeing my husband (stalking victim at the time) frowning over some Kant, with a coffee and a smoke.
Yeah I'm a European transplant, this is one of those areas where that really shows I guess. Although there was as much smoking in the (former?) tobacco state where I lived for a bit as in the old country (in fact, smoking in bars was still allowed there after it was banned in most of Europe).
