Mother Teresa of Calcutta noted that often the sick refused food and asked for a cigarette because most would rather smoke than eat  – so she told her sisters to sit them up and help them smoke. What difference does it make? You're giving the poor beggar what he wants - a moment of contentment and it's not going to break us.

I know what you mean. In fact, if I see a beggar (by which I mean someone who is not activly asking for money, but just sitting on the sidewalk with his cap out for change) and I don't have any change, I'll often stop and ask if they smoke. They all seem to, so I'll give them a smoke or two.
