I'm an addict!
I have been for years.
Dying from it
is one of my fears.
The thing that I mostly hate,
is feeling my health
The nicotine stains
and ashtray breath,
bring me ever closer
to death.
On my death bed
I'll probably say...
Pass me my fags
and an ashtray.

    I am not a smoker and never have been. I will often make a smart remark to a few of my friends that do smoke. But I guess as never smoked I don't have an idea of how hard it is to quit..... I hope you can =)

    Such a truthful honest write. I have witness someone close do exactly this. He statement was what more can happen, I'm already dying, why quit now. But to me, someone left with out her, I thought why not quit back then. Congrats on your win.

    I sure hope you can give it up. My daughter in law just can't stop. Even carrying our grandson, she kept at it. I know it has to be terribly difficult to quit. This is a great poem. Congrats for your win.
