Local electrician Ben Simpson has just purchased a packet of cigarettes, resigning himself to what will occur tonight.
“Yeah I only smoke when I drink to be honest mate, but it’s a Saturday arvo and I’m going for a few beers…”
“So I may as well face the inevitable and get em now rather than having to run off 6 or 7 deep” he said.
“I have started thinking maybe I could just take em up. Like I know they aren’t healthy and it’s not cool like it was in the eighties, but all the blokes on site get so many more breaks than me cause they smoke,” he explained.
The 26-year-old Tamworth local confirmed that his girlfriend will probably give him a bit of a spray when he gets home.
“I’ll try and pick up some chewy on the way and play off that I just smell cause of the other boys but she will know. She always knows.”
Simpson couldn’t explain to the Advocate why it is that he feels the urge to punch a durry after a couple of beers but said it just felt right.
