 Matches must be carried to use various drugs, like cigarettes, or to light things like molotov cocktails. You can also use matches to light nearby items on fire. 

Matchbooks are slightly buggy: Despite the description, they cannot be used to consume drugs. They can still be used to start a fire. Matchbooks may have less than 20 matches, and may even be empty. Ironically the only use for such an item is burning. Matches can be applied to light a fire. The game will inform you if you're about to set fire to an unset brazier but don't count on it telling you when lighting a fire is a bad idea. Don't play with matches indoors unless you're using a wood stove! Or using a brazier and have a gas mask to counter the smoke.
