The Reason I Smoke
Why do I smoke cigarettes? For me it's simply because I enjoy smoking. Yes, I know all the risk factors associated with smoking. I have seen commercials on T.V. It's almost like a hobby for me. When I wake up in the morning I look forward to taking those first couple of drags to get me started.
Some people enjoy energy drinks, pills, or those 5 hour power shots. Not me a good cigarette does that for me no problem. My kids tell me all the time mommy you need to quit. I don't think they realize how difficult it would be for me. I am more than addicted to cigarettes I consider them my friend.
For me it's the crackling you here as you are puffing on the cigarette. Almost like a good bonfire where you can hear the wood cracking as its burning. Others may have different things they enjoy doing like get a fountain soda to take edge off, Starbucks, or even something as simple as biting there nails.
That's the one thing I can say about life is that no two people are alike. What makes others happy may not make you happy. As for smoking I have smoked over 20 years and I don't plan to stop anytime soon.
