Do you really think you are something new?
The Moral Statistician
Originally published in Sketches, Old and New, 1893
I don't want any of your statistics; I took your whole batch and lit my pipe with it.
I hate your kind of people. You are always ciphering out how much a man's health is injured, and how much his intellect is impaired, and how many pitiful dollars and cents he wastes in the course of ninety-two years' indulgence in the fatal practice of smoking; and in the equally fatal practice of drinking coffee; and in playing billiards occasionally; and in taking a glass of wine at dinner, etc. etc.
And you are always figuring out how many women have been burned to death because of the dangerous fashion of wearing expansive hoops, etc. etc. You never see more than one side of the question...
Now you know all these things yourself, don't you? Very well, then, what is the use of your stringing out your miserable lives to a lean and withered old age?
What is the use of your saving money that is so utterly worthless to you?
In a word, why don't you go off somewhere and die, and not be always trying to seduce people into becoming as ornery and unlovable as you are yourselves, by your villainous "moral statistics"?
Now, I don't approve of dissipation, and I don't indulge in it either; but I haven't a particle of confidence in a man who has no redeeming petty vices. And so I don't want to hear from you any more.
I think you are the very same man who read me a long lecture last week about the degrading vice of smoking cigars, and then came back, in my absence, with your reprehensible fire-proof gloves on, and carried off my beautiful parlor stove.
Those who forget the past will repeat it. Those who deny the past should be feared.

Seems there are a lot of idiots on here that thinks smoking won't hurt You. Well Let me tell You something. Smoking does more to Your body than You think. It weakens Your immune system, I smoked 2 a day for 30 years. Almost died from a heart attack in Sept of 2000.I was very blessed to be alive. And now, if that wasn't bad enough, I stand a good chance of losing My Left leg do to Peripheral vascular disease, Yes, caused from smoking. Smokers wake up, Don't let this happen to you.I spent 4 days in the hospital. Came out a non-smoker, But I quit too late, Damage was already done. Please get educated on this
