Picture Post: Put That Thing Out!

I quit smoking twelve years and three weeks ago. I still frequently crave the cigarettes; but then I see these young people smoking... and it just pisses me off. I remember being young and thinking it was no big deal, I could quit when I want to, it's my body isn't it, I'm an adult I can make my own decisions... yada yada yada. I would give just about anything to have skin that fits again, being able to stay awake for more than sixteen hours, and standing up out of a chair without audibly creaking; but I would never wish to recapture the stupidity of youth.

Speaking of skin that fits, though...












But seriously, if you're a slave to the nicotine, you can get out from under it. I mean, what have you got to lose? I won't lie to you, it's incredibly hard to do, nicotine (especially the genetically altered nicotine of American cigarettes) is more addictive than heroin. But just think of the benefits to your skin, your breath, your lungs, and your pocketbook.

Think about it. It's gonna be illegal eventually, anyway, so why not get ahead of the trend?
