Right, I use my one match to light my ciggie. My ciggie in turn can light the oil lamp, which I need to see if there is a way out. There isn't. After a while, I light the heater, because I am cold and I am pissed off because my cigarette is finished. I light the heater from the flame of the oil lamp. Finally, I light the gas cooker because I am hungry - hey I've been here...like...FOREVER....without another ciggie and no way out, but I am warm and comfortable, but I am also hungry. So I find a cockroach....as they tend to live in dark places. But I won't eat it raw because cockroaches spread diseases so I have to cook it first. So I use the burnt out matchstick to prong the cockroach and hold it over the gas ring..
I've got this all wrong, haven't I? FAIL FAIL FAIL!!! lol
(and - on top of it all - you get increasingly agitated that you don't have another match that would let you smoke the cockroach or anything else in the room you could possibly smoke). A cold, dark, room ain't pretty - but a smoker without a cigarette is real ugly!
Izzy, besides feeling a whole lot better about being in a cold, dark, room; you could use the cigarette to light one or more of those other things - or else just start a fire in the couch (and both warm up and brighten the room). Your answer is definitely the wisest.
