- Tobacconist: Right. I want to try you on a course of these: one twenty times a day. Have you taken them before?
Patient: Um, what is it?
Tobacconist: It's a simple nicotinal arsenous monoxid preparation taken bronchially as an infumation.
Tobacconist: Yes, you just light the end and breathe it.
Patient: What, like cigarettes?
Tobacconist: You know them then. Actually, it's a bit hard to admit but they're basically an herbal remedy... A leaf originally from the Americas, I believe, called tobacco.
Patient: But medicated?
Tobacconist: Medicated? No.
Patient: These are ordinary cigarettes?
Tobacconist: That's right.
Patient: But they're terribly bad for you, aren't they?
Tobacconist: I hardly think I would be prescribing them if they were bad for you.
Patient: Twenty a day?
Tobacconist: Yes, ideally moving on to about thirty or forty.
