Idea for response to the 21st-century Prohibition.

If it pisses you off that the government hassle has made or WILL make you quit smoking, here's an idea:

Write down how much money you WOULD have spent on cigarettes each day. Come election time, use that amount to punish one of the freedom-haters in Congress.

If your Representative or Senator voted for the latest restrictions, for example, donate half of that money to a primary challenger against him or her, and half to a general election challenger.

If your guy voted AGAINST this monstrosity, donate half to him or her, and pick out one of the Prohibitionists that voted YES and spend the other half trying to get them defeated.

The YES/NOs can be found here and here.
