I Decided to Quit Killing Myself

Let me start with saying I LOVE smoking. That is a horrible fact to admit especially with today’s stigma connected to the subject but I go about doing enjoy it.

So this story starts about 38 in the past when I was only a young boy. My parents were 70s kids and in addition they grew up currently where smoking was normal and socially accepted. Everyone smoked and also you could smoke anywhere you went the market, the restaurant the place you were eating dinner, work and also the doctor’s office. Heck including the doctor was probably smoking within the visit to you.

Now I was about 5 to 6 years old and my parents smoked around me and I hated it. I just couldn’t stand the give an impression of the smoke and I hated smelling like smoke constantly. I would gripe and moan begging these to stop telling them it absolutely was nasty and making me sick as well as they would respond while using normal parental response of “quit your bitching”. I remember 1 time I was still really young but I had gotten into my mother’s purse and decided I was intending to make her quit. So I grabbed her pack of “Marlboros” and I would show her and I threw them within the toilet and merely left them floating there. Well my mom found them prefer that and she was furious at me. I probably got called every name inside book but at the conclusion of it all she calmed down and spoke with me regarding it. She said “it really bothers you that bad huh?” Well I just informed her that that it was gross and stinky and didn’t like gonna school and smelling like smoke throughout the day. She agreed that it was a nasty habit understanding that she would try and quit. Well naturally like many individuals who “seek to quit” it really didn’t work. A couple of months then event my mom discovered that she was pregnant in what I was sure was my little brother so when she found she was pregnant she looked over me and said “I will grant you your wish” and she or he never smoked again. Following my mother’s lead Mt dad even made a decision to quit smoking and this day they’ve already never smoked again.

Fast forward about a decade. I was ready 15 or possibly even longer and I knew from this point I had an addictive personality regardless of whether I didn’t determine what that was right at that moment I knew that I tended close to indulge in anything I found enjoyable. One day I was riding my bike along a highway(small town highway) and I found a pack of any nicotine products that must have accidentally been dropped.by someone. I picked them up though I had never had any curiosity about smoking I thought I was cool with those actions in my pocket. You might be thinking to yourself that should be when he soon began smoking however, you would be wrong. I kept that pack of any nicotine products hidden during my room for months each once in a while I would make them out and look at them and smell them and also act like I was smoking but I knew greater than to ever actually light one up because I knew I may not be able to stop once I started don’t forget all those in the past how nasty my parents smelled because of those actions.

Years went by and I resisted the desire to join all of my friends and all of the “cool kids” and initiate smoking. I worked in restaurants where people smoked and took cigarette breaks while I stayed working but I refused to smoke so I would take air breaks 5 minute breaks where I would leave like all others but but I wouldn’t smoke I would just stand there and breathe. One day I guess I concerned 19 to 20 yrs . old I was returning from a vacation to Louisville KY that has a friend and hubby was smoking and I said oh to heck from it I am about to try one and easily see what the many hype involved. From that first hit of this cigarette. Marlboro Menthol Lights I was hooked. My nerves perceived to calm and I was relaxed and simply felt satisfaction.

So for the following 18 years I was a keen smoker. Smoking between 1 pack to 2 packs daily. I had to get my cigarettes even determining to smoke overeating at times because I couldn’t afford to buy both food and cigarettes.
