It's about the mechanical similarity between the act of kissing and the act of smoking. The bit about baby feeding is an afterthought but might hold some truth I guess. Anyway, it's one fuck of a sticky habit, the scientific community tm is unanimous....and proper explanations as to why that is so seem somewhat elusive. I have another theory about cigarette smoking and that is that it reinforces/comforts us by reassuring us that we are in fact comfortable with our mortality. Freud would probably say it is related to Thanatos but TBH I'm sceptical that Thanatos exists.
