A Health Hazard worst and costly then the most addictive drugs out in the market place to date.
A beautiful young single African American mother, who is accomplishing her goals and succeding through some of lifes toughest objections and distractions. I learned a long time ago, that no matter what I go through or what someone says about me, or whoever may disbelive in me. That I will make it. I am determined to and I believe in myself no matter what odds I am facing. For better or for worst, I can do something about anything I face. I accept all challenges except death, because I can't do anything dead.

It appeard to look glamerous
even the woman smoking it
I want to be like you
I thought to myself
so I asked for a ciggarett
I lit it, inhaled, even chocked
it burned my lungs
still, that didn't scare me
I'll get this, I thought
and I did
In fact, I still have it today, 22 years later.
I tried to quit, but the ciggaretts won't allow me.
I stopped for two weeks the first time
picked up again and started smoking more.
The second time, I stopped for, four days picked up again
and I started smoking more, and more.
I found myself buying two packs of ciggaretts.
I started evaluating myself, to see was I really
smoking two packs of ciggaretts a day
or just giving them away?
Then I finally looked at the cost
and realized, wait a minute this cost more than weed
and it don't get me high.
Then I thought damn, at least the heroin addicts
have morphene to help kick their habits.
When I try to stop smoking, I get anxiety, my mood changes, I am angry,
frustrated, don't have time and don't want to talk to anyone
it seems at that time everything seems to aggrivate me
and my worst enemy, the one that I always run to
seems to comfort me, console me, and makes me feel like it's okay.
Woe, this is not suppose to have me like this
I'm not on crack, or heroin, or alcohol,
nor am I addicted to men, work, the streets, money, or partying
so why does the drug, because I am addicted to ciggartetts
have so much control over me, versus me having control over it?
I don't want to die from lung cancer,
or be speaking with one of those voice controlled boxes.
It would be such a sad way to go out
for such a beautiful young lady.
I can't blame anyone, but myself
I want to stop killing myself slowly.
