It's one of those days . You know , one of those when life seems upside down , when you think you can do nothing right , or everything is going wrong . You live in self pity and put yourself in your own little bubble to protect yourself from more pain and hurt .
You think the only thing to do is smoke ; you think your only friend is the cigarette ; you think the only way through is to smoke or die .
How absolutely ridiculous is this statement . A cigarette can change your life ? Make things better ? Get you through what ?
When you look back , did smoking ever help you through ? What changed that got you through ? Forgiveness , acceptance , hope , love , patience , a friend , rest , healing , strength , tenderness , laughter ?
I can gaurentee you it wasn't a cigarette ..
It will never be a cigarette .
