Tobacco is a filthy weed,
Which from the Devil does proceed;
It drains your purse, it stains your clothes,
And makes a chimney of your nose

so true. but at some point or another most of us can see ourselves trapped in that situation but our senses, human reason and good judgement will tell us what's the truth. Evicting selfishness and greed.

Anyone can put you on the right path
but they can't make you walk it, you have to make that first step
and decide if you're on the road to failure or success.
