...I am not making any more confessions about my nicotine habit.
...they're too awful. But not all of them are demeaning.

In a fit of desperation yesterday in downtown Cairns I walked up to a old, thin homeless-looking and half-drunk aboriginal man and said 'excuse me sir, do you smoke cigarettes?' He did. I held out the packet I'd bought an hour earlier and said 'then would you like these? I have to give them away. They're killing me'. I gave him the box of matches as well.

...it's a desperate business.

It may not have been the best thing to do.

I've been smoking cigarette butts during all the morning. It is supposed I am not going to buy a pack of cigarettes anymore...

There is a group on facebook: "gente que deja de fumar, pero deja de fumar de su tabaco" that means something like "people who stop smoking, but they stop smoking from their cigarette packs" (not sure if the translation is good... it means that they stop smoking but they keep smoking from other people's cigarettes") Laughing
But I'm not going to do that...

that must be the word...
I thought indistinctly meant indistintamente
strange indiscriminately I think it doesn't mean the same as indiscriminadamente

It's the "false cognate" problem.
The Russian word "kontrol," por exemplo, does not mean "control." geek

indistinctly means unclearly
indiscriminately means randomly (without preference or prejudice).

It means examination/monitoring/observation.

...as in the English usage "stock-control"
(examination/monitoring/observation of goods/merchandise)

...rather than in 'border-control'
(where control implies domination)?

I've just learnt the word embarrassed comes from the French word embarrasser that comes from the Spanish word embarazar-to make a woman pregnant
