Not content with being unhealthy I am also slowly smoking myself into an early grave.
Unlike some smokers I picked up the habit fairly late and the moment I came to terms with smoking I felt stupid.
Not because smoking is inherently bad for you (or that it makes you a social leper) but because I used to be a preachy non-smoker.
And there is little worse than that…except for a casual smoker.
The transition from non-smoker to lung blackener is gradual process.
Now I am out of the smoking closet, have left the self denial behind and come to terms with it, it is impossible not to look back at myself and cringe.
And it’s all because the phases between becoming an adolescent smoker and an adlt smoker are so annoying.
Fellow smokers, have you noticed that when non-smokers tell you how badly you are killing your lungs, casual smoker remain strangely quiet and never mention the fact that they smoke?
And casual smokers only smoke, or so they claim, socially – when they are having a drink.
But by far the worst is that they hunt in groups. And then they bum your cigarettes – never before has a pack of ten so quickly turned into a pack of two.
Casual smokers have a little smoker inside them struggling, scratching and clawing their way out desperate to blacken their lungs.
Either let the little bastard run free – or have the will be to commit an act of violence him.
Whatever you decide go and buy your own!
