|The Benefits of Smoking                                                                     |                                   |
|                                                                                           |                                   |
|1. Smoking has had a bit of a bad press lately. In fact, to be precise, it has had no press|                                   |
|at all since the advertising of cigarettes in magazines was banned. There’s little doubt,   |                                   |
