I've seen smokers huddle out in the cold on 10 degree days or brave a downpour just to get a blessed puff. But you've got to be jonesing really bad - or be titanically stupid - to try and open an airplane door while in flight in order to light up. Of course, she has a defense:
Defense lawyer Helen Shilton told the court Sellies was terrified of flying and had taken sleeping tablets with alcohol before takeoff.
Shilton said Sellies has no memory of what happened on the flight and that she has a history of sleepwalking.
Damn lawyers - they can justify just about everything! :)
