Dr Lighter : Come in Mr. Fag, please sit down. Now, how can I help you ?
Mr. Fag : Well, doctor, my G.P. said that you may be able to help me; you see, I want to stop smoking.
Dr. Lighter : I see, and what made you decide to stop smoking ?
Mr. Fag : Several things actually. First, my brother was diagnosed with lung cancer last month, and he didn’t smoke as much as me. And then, I’m trying to get fit again, and I get out of puff just walking to the shops, and on top of that my wife has been pestering me for years; you see, she managed to stop, and if she can do it, I can too.
