Take on the smoker

When I was a kid, smoking was still sort of cool.  The Malboro cowboy was cool, Joe Camel was sort of cool and the idea of smoking PalMall without filters sounded manly.   It's 30 years later and all aspects of cool are gone.  I have ever been a smoker, so don't have any grasp of the difficulty of nicotine addiction but it can't be that hard since basically every person who isn't living in a trailer has given it up. 
But then I saw some dude standing outside of a water park in 14 degree weather in a wet bathing suit smoking and thought to myself that the tar must have reached his brain because it just makes no sense and I have no sympathy if you end up with a combination of pneumonia and black lung
