    I started smoking when I was 13,

    steeling from my folks. At the time I thought I'd stop around 18 but I couldn't. Tried a number of times in my late 30's to give up but always fell off the wagon.

    I have Cerebral Palsy and it is the only thing I've found that helps with my spasms. However for the past two days I've been stuck in some damned care home surrounded by helpless young adults like me and elderly people. I am growing desperate for cigarettes.

    I am proudly and happily addicted to smoking. I started smoking knowing I would become addicted and now I embrace the addiction. Never feel guilty about your enjoyment of smoking. You are addicted for a reason..... you love it. Smoke on.
