Tobacco is addicting to everyone who smokes cigarettes; alcohol may be addicting to only a few people who drink.

Cigarettes are supposedly harmful to the smoker, and to those people near him when he smokes.

Alcohol is supposedly harmful if injusted in large quantities; however, it is considered healthy if it is injusted in a very limited amounts.

Cigarettes may be smoked in all sorts of public places most any time and on Sunday, but alcohol may only be consumed in cerain very specific places and at very certain specific times - like not on Sunday and before 1 or 2 a.m.

Alcohol is highly controlled by the government and few people raise a very big fuss about it, but people scream like he+l when the government tries to control tobacco.

I'm sorry, Doc but your article doesn't make sense for us in Washington State. You can't smoke in public places here in Washington state. We,also, don't have blue laws here, the state runs the liquer stores and we can purchase alcohol on Sundays.

Seattle is debating about keeping bars open all night so no not right now. They currently close at 3am on weekends. Yes, stores are open on Sundays.
