"The National Socialist Workers Party' anti-tobacco rhetoric drew from an earlier generation's eugenics rhetoric and also reflected an ethic of bodily purity and zeal for work.3 Tobacco use was attacked as an "epidemic," a "plague," as "dry drunkenness," and as "lung masturbation"; tobacco and alcohol abuses were "diseases of civilization" and "relics of a liberal lifestyle."

Regardless of who may or may not have agreed, it is difficult to dismiss the idea that an affliction (such as the pathological state known as "nicotine addiction") striking one of four or even one of five adults--after decades spent fighting the disease--qualifies as epidemic, or as an epidemic. "Pandemic" would be a better fit, though.

You don't need to quit smoking. You need to quit poisoning others.

Please, smoke more. Smoke as much as possible. The more you smoke, the better.
