    I stupidly started smoking cigarettes in 9th grade. I was feeling cool, and no one seemed to care. Oh sure, they told us how bad it was, but it was too late. I was hooked. I was a real pro blowing smoke rings through smoke rings - and coughing up a l...

    Yes, I look older now. Thank you for noticing! Where once there was a layer of fat and a triple chin, there are now cheekbones coming through, and my face proudly shows the years, I have managed to get under my belt so far. "You have such a pretty fa...

  • Just the Tip of the Iceberg

    Years ago I sat down one night and wrote down all of the "bad" things I had done when I still smoked cigarettes. The confessions of an ex-smoker, finally admitting how wrong some of my actions had been. How could I ever forget the night I almost sat ...
