Great cigarette quitters

Case I saw at the hospital today: Gentleman in his 70's, who was leaving his lung doctor's office after an emphysema appointment. The patient was quite proud that he'd been able to quit smoking for 6 months, and decided to celebrate by having a cigarette (REALLY!).

Anyway, he didn't have any cigarettes, but while walking to his car found a used butt lying in the parking lot, so he lit that. And then he passed out.
