    I agree, because a craving for sugar, fat, and salt is an evolutionary element built into the human metabolism and even evidences itself on out the layout of our tongues.
    A taste for tobacco is most definitely an acquired one and one suspects it was really only ever pursued for domestication because of its consciousness-altering properties, as slight as they may be compared to other stuff...

    Oh, yeah. I spent time on the USS America and those smokes were cheap! Back then the military encouraged smoking.

    Yeah Dave, I used to say "At this price, you can't afford to not smoke."

    Then people would still try to bum cigarettes from me; I'd tell them to buy their own at 11 cents a pack!

    I was in Sicily (Sigonella) in 73-74. You could barter for just about anything on the local economy for american cigarettes. Marlboro was the preferred brand, as I recall.
