(Joe Camel’s) Hump Day

I have decided, in that whimsical way Charon’s Aide has of setting plans, that Wednesday shall be “stats day” at Puff of Heaven.  You’d have to expect that activity at this website will increase as I post more and more articles about the goofy yet gratifying world of smoking appreciation.  Besides, I’m sure you’re dying […]

Social Pressure

I was completely obsessed with cigarettes and with smoking by the time I’d reached the age of nine.  I’d probably become obsessed with the whole business long before that; but it was at that age I realized I’d formed a unbreakable connection in my mind between smoking and intense sexual longing.  There was a lot […]

Here’s the thing.  “Charon’s Aide” can be open and honest about […]
