Perhaps not to the same degree as in The States, but it is far from getting
better. But our government is also actively following a policy of convincing
the non-smokers that they ought to dislike smokers for numerous reasons.

Gauloises (tobacco, no cigarettes), about 20 a day. Its the only think I
really can smoke. Sometimes thats a problem, since it is rarely sold at gas
stations or cafés... When I cant buy anything else, Id rather buy cigarettes
(Gauloises without filter, or Gitanes) than Dutch tobacco, which is
over-perfumed and over-sauced.

About ten years ago I smoked kreteks sometimes, but never could get really used
to them. And they smell like marihuana... Taste nice, though...

So do I. But never mixed with anything. Coffee must be strong and "black as a
moonless night" as Dale Cooper expressed it so eloquently in Twin Peaks.

Agreed completely and fullheartedly! I like tea, but only when its the very
best. My favourite is a mixture of Lapsang Souchong with Ceylon (thats what I
used to drink at my grandmothers place, served in Wedgwood).

Yeah, I've the same feeling about any other drink, too. My motto: never mix
anything. No coffee or tea with milk or sugar, bloody Mary, or rhum-coke for

Yummy!!! I always make it in hot milk, with perhaps 3 teaspoons of cocoa and 2
of sugar. I never tried it with coffee, but its definitely worth to try!
