    1. addiction is addiction…is addiction. No matter if you're 18 or 78.

  3. That should be an absolute condition of living in taxpayer subsidized housing...absolutely no smoking! Even if a smoker doesn't burn their place up, the extra cleaning costs associated with smokers is more than I want to pay. In this case, of course, one way or another you and I will be paying for the cost of repairing the damage caused by this woman's stupidity.
