Very artistic.

You made a great point there, smoking can unstress you a little, for a little while, but that only means you'll have to go back for more and more until you stop and realize that stress is simply a part of life.

You are great!

I, for one, was addicted once upon a time and it is true that it only causes more stress in the long run. I enjoy seeing truth in games as you have done here. It is not truly a game, but an eye opener.

Simplicity At Best

Most would probably say that this game is stupid and a waste of time like the person under but, that's because they can't see the art in this. I chose to smoke the cigarettes for the same reason people do in reality. I wanted to make sure that stress meter didn't overfill and cause the little man a problem at the first sign of trouble. Little did I know though, that the stress meter filling wouldn't kill me or cause him any issues. It just lowers and stays there afterwards. In truth, the meter doesn't even overfill if you don't touch the cigarettes, it simply increases. It's a perfect example of the decision in life.

I, for one, like it

This is uncannily truthful, the message is bright, yet people who smoke are blind to it; smoking does nothing but damage, sure your less stress now after a stick, but tell me how you fill when your breathing starts to sting, what are your thoughts when you look at the paper that finalize your lung cancer?

I like that the game lets me choose to start my habit, in just like real life, I can either pick up a cigarette, or leave the drug be; I choose to click on the packet, and now I'm stuck with it. I thought it was an endurance game at first, and continued to smoke the stress away (I was totally mashing on that cigarette button), but then I grew bored and decided to see what would happen if I left the button be...

It's scary how a lot of smokers love to use the excuse "I've been smoking so long, why stop now?", well, maybe because you might kick the bad habit? Some my think the most powerful part of the game was when the little guy's stress meter filled, and he was uncomfortable for a bit, until he finally overcame his habit, but I think the best part of the game was that I could have very well never clicked on the cigarettes in the first place (Really, nearly two seconds into the game, I immediately pressed the cig button).

Cheers, man, I'd drink to something like this.
