I really enjoyed this little cartoon. Although I cannot say I have ever smoked at a bus stop, whenever someone lights up the bus can almost always be guaranteed to arrive soon. Which is unfortunate for me, if I find them attractive. I wonder if you could carry this metaphor further. For me, despite making myself ill, there will always be a little magic to smoking. I always find it alters my sense of time, which is what this cartoon gets at I think.
