...for the love of smoke

With a recent thought i 'm having of quitting this BAD-bad-bad habit, numerous images and scenes from our recent smoking culture popped into my mind. It didn't take long for this masculine habit to expand and reign in women's hands. And through les femmes, media redetermined this action and the up-to-now symbolism became more of a stylish attitude and a type of seductive sensuality.
Definitely that's not the reason why i started enjoying the sound of my own inhaillings, but there are times when smoking accentuates indeed some feelings and feels like the necessary way in order to reach the "aesthetic result" you 're aiming at- whether it 's an image of anger, anxiety, deep thought, inspiration, sensuality, absent-mindedness.. In this way, somehow, smoking has been closely related to iconic figures of both the film industry and the arts and literature.

Ah, the best cinematic cigarette image is the scene between Bette Davis and Paul Henreid in "Now, Voyager."
