Poker, Porn & Cigarettes

Tony's been up all night playing on-line poker, which he reckons is a great way to win loads of cash, fast, whilst avoiding burning up useful calories, which would be the case if he did a job which involved him moving around for hours on end, tiring him out, and sapping him of his energy.
Of course, last night he ddn't actually win any money, but instead lost over two hundred pounds, which was our housekeeping budget for this month. However, he did manage to drink eighteen cans of lager, smoke two packets of cigarettes and believe for just a few moments that he was in Vegas, playing the game of his life against some high-rollers.
The fact that we haven't got any money left to buy any food this month doesn't really bother me, because as Tony says, he's a fat bastard, who needs to lose a few pounds in weight. However, I've made it quite clear that the on-line gambling has got to stop, because it can become very addictive, and could lead to financial ruin.
Tony was very apologetic, and has promised that from now on he'll be using the internet for porn, and keeping in touch with his numerous friends via e-mail.
Mercifully, I've managed to save my only friend from becoming a hopeless, down and out gambler, and so to celebrate this marvellous victory, we're both off to the pub, to drink ourselves senseless, and hopefully flush Tony's gambling addiction out of his system.
