Cigarettes: two years later

And that is the most scary thing about cigarettes. There is no denying the power they yield when, after having no tobacco in my system for two years, there is still something appealing about having a cigarette. I don’t mean to give you the wrong idea; I won’t have one. But the fact that the craving is still there is a little insane. Still, I’m healthier, I’m in better shape, and I overall feel so much better. I did it! Pay up!

Okay, enough of the gloating. My plan is actually to pay it forward for a friend of mine who still smokes. I’m going to take most of my winnings and make a bet with him. Hopefully, it will be as helpful for him as it was for me.

And the film will come together; they always do. If I’ve learned anything, it’s that you have to trust that the film will show you what it wants to be. The hardest part, to be honest, is sitting there all day and waiting for that to happen, especially if you can’t go outside once in a while for a smoke.
