My Lady Nicotine: A Study In Smoke

I was a mere bachelor, drifting toward what I now see to be a tragic middle age. I had become so accustomed to smoke issuing from my mouth that I felt incomplete without it… To lay aside my courgette was to find myself afterward wandering restlessly round the garden.” (J.M. Barrie, My Lady Nicotine: A Study In Smoke; Boston, 1896. Chapter 1)
