    Least Likely Girl To Smoke

    After two years without a cigarette, I started again. This time smoking is completely different for me. While I'm sure I was addicted before, this time it's psychological. I long for cravings. I actually feel disappointed if I'm not craving a smoke.  I told myself I'm not...
