Thanks for checking out my project!

For the cost of a pack of cigarettes you can back a work that delves into one of life's last great guilty pleasures. 

Because we all know there is nothing in this world like a cigarette. 

Smokers stand in half circles striking red tipped matches against sandpaper, clicking colored lighters, and executing an age old practice of breathing smoke. We are a part of a cycle, a movement, a lifestyle, and represent a sizable part of the world’s population. Over a billion.

This work will not condone smoking, but rather will defend the rights of people to enjoy their right to smoke, and to make the free choice to do so. So many different platforms have taken positions against smoking, but rarely is anyone willing to capture and highlight the joys smoking can bring to those who choose to. It will include a history of tobacco, social commentary on smoking, smoking etiquette, vignettes about smoking, and much much more!

I began this book shortly after I became a regular smoker to express how I, and millions of others, feel about cigarettes.  I smoke, and I'm proud to be a smoker.  

Cigarettiquette! a smoker's manifesto, is a voice to represent the segregated community of smokers who embrace smoking as a part of themselves. 

I plan to self-publish Cigarettiquette, with your help!  Pledge today for a book that will celebrate cigarettes and enjoy a great read during your smoke break!
