@ic3man No, I’m not saying all smokers are childish. I’m saying that Raikkonen is though, and smoking lots of cigarettes strikes me as one of the things he’d do to try and prove to the world how cool he is, like saying swearwords on the telly and wearing hats which are too big for him. I could be wrong, it’s just speculation after all.
I was a smoker for over 15 years and I can say categorically that when I started it was because I thought smoking had a cool image attached to it. At some point during my smoking ‘career’ I realised I’d been duped, and that smoking wasn’t cool, nor was it something I needed to do. So eventually I stopped. But like any addiction, it gets into your mind and through an act of doublethink, you can simultaneously know that it’s all a con and you’re just addicted to a chemical, while genuinely believing that you smoke because you enjoy it and that smoking makes you look like a cross between James Dean and the Marlboro Man..
