it's an understatement to say that everyone in egypt smokes. everyone in egypt smokes. cigarettes are very cheap here, especially by nyc standards, and ok- let's say that everyone has or needs a vice. well given that alcohol isn't really available, cigarettes have become the go-to solution when in need of a fix.
in effort to curb the volume of cigarettes consumed, all cigarette packs are now sold with these unappealing, appetite-losing, gut wrenching images of the effects of smoking.i don't know what's more disturbing. the fact that these are ignored, or the fact that i still have to sit at tables where these images are being shoved in my face.yucky.
