Cigarettes are a consumable item.
A lighter or matches are required to smoke a cigarette.
Cigarettes can be used to reduce some stress of the player in exchange for causing some sickness.
If the player has the smoker trait, they will require having a regular cigarette, else they'll start to gain stress and eventually unhappiness. By having a smoke, they will receive a stress relief bonus (greater than without the trait).
Cigarettes can be used to make insecticide spray to combat pest flies.

The farmer profession or gardener trait are required to craft insecticide.
Cigarettes can be found in stacks of twenty at a time, and they may be found in counters, crates, desks, garbage bins and zombies.
