Bane of my existence. Fire of my loins. Love of my life. Wait. What am I talking about. I'm not a smoker. Yet, flying in the face of previous lung purity, I have been smoking these cigarettes for the past week or so since my return from Hawaii. Why? Well, they taste good and the high is interesting. Sometimes too interesting though as it makes me dizzy and sick. Foiled again: pleasure revealed as pain.But, wait 100% additive-free natural tobacco sounds like a pretty good deal, no? When was the last time you heard anything positive about cigarettes? 100% naturally baby, yeah!!ahhh...I see through you peace pipe smoke screen, Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company (coincidentally established the year I was born- I can hear their PR rep loud and clear:"we've been killing people since you were born, Mcdonough!")..."Naturally" killing me too. Though, to their credit, they don't even let you enter their website unless you admit you are already a smoker. I stared at the screen for a good two minutes before I agreed to play their little game.They also have a footer (nearly as big as their logo) declaring, "If you don't smoke, don't start." To support this highly suspect position they list 58 different websites to help you, their customer, quit the habit. Something tells me that, in spite of all their hypocritical -yet, potentially honest- efforts, they aren't losing too much business.In conclusion, I will site my membership to the inherently flawed human race as I admit that I too could possibly be victimized by nicotine. Thank god they don't sell Natural American Spirits in South Korea (Santa Fe Co. won't even export them to Korea... I checked their website) and I refuse to be a dirty Marlboro man and/or smoke thin, silly-named Korean cigarettes.
