I smoked my first cigarette when I was around 13 years old.
My friends father smoked camel cigarettes. We thought we were the bomb. We would steal a few of his cigarettes and walk up to the mall. We'd walk around the mall, smoking and smiling at the boys. What we didn't realize was that we had tobacco stuck to our teeth from the unfiltered cigarettes. We looked like a couple of idiots! The boys weren't smiling back at us, they were laughing at us.
Well here it is almost 30 years later, and I'm hooked on the damn things. I smoke filtered cigarettes now, so I don't have the tobacco stuck to my teeth, but my teeth have a yellowish tinge from this addicting crap.
I told my kids how easy it is to start smoking, but once you want to quit it's harder than hell!
I live day to day, cause money is tight for me, but I always come up with money for those squares.
I just think that smoking is one of the stupidest things that anyone could do. I ought to know!
