Tobacco Quotations

The true face of smoking is disease, death and horror - not the glamour and sophistication the pushers in the tobacco industry try to portray.
David Byrne

I smoke as much as I want and chew tobacco a good deal of the time. I don't pay any attention to the rules for keeping in physical condition. I think they are a lot of bunk. The less you worry about the effect of tea and coffee on the lining of your stomach, the longer you will live, and the happier you will be.
Zack Wheat

Tobacco is the only industry that produces products to make huge profits and at the same time damage the health and kill their consumers.
Margaret Chan

When I was young, I kissed my first woman and smoked my first cigarette on the same day. Believe me, never since have I wasted any more time on tobacco.
Arturo Toscanini

Sugar is the new tobacco.
Cynthia Kenyon
