I smoked three cigarettes in high school, when I was sixteen; mostly because I wasn't supposed to (did I say I was sixteen?). There was something about that third one that made me suspect that if I smoked a fourth I'd never get stopped again.

I am massively grateful to my sixteen-year-old self for never taking that fourth cigarette. Alcohol and marijuana I can take or leave. Tobacco I'm afraid would have been another matter entirely.
