> (Nicotine is similar, I imagine, though I've never actually used it)

I once heard Iain M Banks say on the radio, as he lit up (he was making a program about a tour of whisky distilleries at the time) -

"Nicotine, a drug so shit you can do it while you're driving"

The program you mention became a book named Raw Spirit. It's one of my favourite books.


Oh nice, didn't know it had gone any further than the radio.

I'm a big fan, though a guilty one as I've never read any of the non-M stuff..
