In South Georgia Island you are permitted, no even more than that, you are encouraged to the point of social requirement to litter. It helps enrich our soil and keep less in our landfills. When someone sees you throwing trash in the trash can they may go as far as pick the trash out and throw it on the ground. They also might chase you and yell "gwqama" which means stop you non litterer. then they spit on you. So i would say congrats on quitting smoking and enriching americas poor soil.

That's true, and I agree that people should never even start smoking. But people do and, once they do, it's hard to give up. From what I remember of my lectures on drugs back at uni, I think nicotine is one of the most addictive substances, second only to caffeine.

Oops! I was wrong - a quick Google search shows nicotine is #1 on the list, caffeine is #2 (http://www.michaelshouse.com/drug-addiction/most-addictive-drugs-world.html). Opiates are generally hard to give up, but most studies show going without them for a few days at a time greatly reduces the level of dependency. Nicotine and caffeine are often considered more addictive because they generally create a serious psychological dependency; they are legal (therefore more widely accessible to users); the withdrawal symptoms last for ages (not just a few days like most opiates do); and, people are more likely to be addicted the first time they take the drug (unlike cannabis, opiates, etc. where the user generally needs a few hits before they start to feel the effects).
