When I was a child you could still buy ‘sweet cigarettes’ in a packet like Woodbines. In fact I was once given a ‘smoker’s kit’ which had a pipe and cigars as well, like a selection box.

Some of those packets had pictures of footballers on, presumably because everyone knows smoking makes you much better at sport.

There are some alternative health warnings on I don’t know if they would be suitable for your project. Probably not.

I’m offering the fags around at last, go on, take one.

The tobacco companies must be gutted that they missed out on the advertising in schools that sugared drinks and trainers companies have now secured in many areas. Here’s something to redress the balance.

Do you remember your first cigarette? Mine was upstairs in a half built house, sitting on a joist above a 15 foot drop. Not the best spot to get dizzy.

The tobacco companies could add high fructose corn syrup to them and sell them in vending machines at schools.
