    Oh Gwennie, I saw your reference to this for Rusty Sivey and had to rush over to find it. How sad my darling to lose you mom in such a devastating way. I too had the horrible habit and it is a devil to break but I did it thank goodness. Now I actually smell like a person! A very sad memory to bear.

    Iwas struck by the sheer drama of your mother's addiction when I read it the first time and it still has the same effect. Great but sad writing. Congratulations on your win. Loce, Joyce

    thank you for sharing your poem with me. It is eerily familiar. And it is beautiful. How glamorous was that necklace? And thank you for your kind comments.

    I see this won the Afflictions contest,Gwen. Leighann never seems to be around, but I am sure glad she came here to give EWE a win. I like that Ewe thing. I had a pin once that said, "Ewe ain't flat. Ewe's just fluffy" I am headed off here too for GOOD tonight as soon as I finish this page of comments. Luv, Andrea

    As an ex smoker, I can certainly relate to this Gwen. Fortunately I was able to slip the hook. My favorite line "hanging by your fingertips to the hands of father time". How eloquent and how true. Congratulations

    Heya Gwendolen. I completely missed this poem of yours. I don't want to sound redundant, but this is another very original poem of yours. Grabbed me, held me in, and I was affected. A big congratulations on your 1st place victory!

    Hey you guys, I am so honored to have placed well with this poem. My sister called me two days ago and was moved by this message...she said she NEVER realized that smoking was such a greedy behavior and she felt badly for being so selfish. I have been begging her to quit for years....just like I begged my mother. I hope she sticks with it. Keep your fingers crossed with me! THANKS. ;)

    Oh Gwen, this is brilliant, for years we were made to believe that smoking was cool, your poem say it all, this is going to my favourites with you . harry
