Observer: 'This much I know' by Joan Bakewell
Society has become obsessed about smoking. I smoked 40 a day for years, through two pregnancies. Never occurred to anyone then. I hit 40 and I remember thinking, 'I really ought to give up.' I thought of buying a pack the other day, though, just because I'm so irritated by this 'don't smoke within two miles of me' stuff.
Ha-ha! Nice one, centurion!
