In today's strip, Phil equates using the nicotine inhaler Georgia bought him to enforced celibacy. Note to self: speculate as to whether being treated like a spoiled child is why Alan demanded that Phil vanish from the strip.

(Strip Number 705, Original Publication Date, 13 September 1984)

Panel 1: Having noticed that Georgia has brought something odd looking home from the story, a baffled Phil asks her if she's brought him home some sort of plastic cigarette.

Panel 2: She tells him that the Snuffabutt-brand nicotine inhaler is scientifically designed to help Phil overcome his cravings while he tries to quit smoking.

Panel 3: As he sticks the thing in his mouth, she is pleasantly surprised that he is willing to try it.

Panel 4: A morose-looking Phil tells her "It's like enforced celibacy, Georgia. There comes a time when you'll try anything!"

Summary: The Lynnsight is all about how this technique failed too. Good thing that nicotine patches were still in their infancy back then. Otherwise, she'd have Phil whine that he was sure that there was an area of flesh yet to be covered somewhere.
