    Default First place in Britain to completely quit fags!

    Sorry, Noir, but my mind wouldn't willingly and naturally work like that. Cigarettes aren't so harmful that they are guaranteed to cause illness, not even after regular smoking lasting years. So I could hardly turn around to a hapless smoker, do my best Leftie impersonation, and say 'You are smoking. I forbid you to ... do as I command !!'
    At no point in this post do you address recommending someone start smoking.

    Is there a circumstance in which you would recommend to someone that they should start smoking?
    If you also agree that an animals suffering should be avoided rather than encouraged, consider what steps you can take.

    Not that it's anything like a complete answer .. but, with Brexit, we're busily taking a step in the right direction. Once the UK is out of the EU, our legal system won't be beset by tons of EU legislation, all designed to tie us ever closer to an eventual United States of Europe.

    You need this reminder, then:

    I'll ask you a second time ... and in the words of my earlier post ... 'Why WOULD I recommend it' ?

    If I don't see a reason to, as must've surely been obvious from that, then how do I answer your current question ??

    This is in any case, on your part, a diversionary point, Noir. Recommendation isn't the point. Heavy-handed legislative dictatorship, and all that this says for the agenda-driven directioned terraforming of social attitudes, IS.

    Remain focused, Noir.
