>WFV assertively utters a token of 'I smoke cigars.'

WFV said "I smoke cigars" = WFV said that he smoked cigars.

>I don't need to point to myself when I say 'I smoke cigars.'

You don't, if the unique sound of your voice is enough to identify you, or if I can see you speaking (i.e. see your mouth moving or identify the direction of your voice with your visual direction).

Otherwise it is like those frustrating conference calls where the bandwidth is so limited that most voices sound the same. Thus someone says that they smoke cigars.
