I already said you are right. There is no fucking way in the world to defend smoking. NO WAY, ALL RIGHT? I'm an asshole for smoking, I have admitted it, and you don't need to call me a poo-poo-head, I can take it like a man. I'm a plain `ole asshole. You're absolutely right. Makes no damn sense to keep right on puffin' away on these damn things, day after day, night after night, payin' $25 bucks a carton when that money could be better spent on a thousand; no, a million better things.
Now ('scuse me; can't find my lighter), I understand exactly how you feel, and you will have to accept that I am simply that kind of an asshole and take me or leave me, right up until the day I finally have that epiphany and that strong feeling on the same day and quit again.
(Ahem)(Cough),um, I stopped smoking (can't say quit, `cause I'm smoking again) for five years. That ended when I got my first cluster headache. About the second or third month of these things, I got pretty depressed and took up the bad things again. Then some doc suggested I quit to see if it would help.
I stopped again for three and a half years. One day I was on my way to buy bullets and stopped on the way for a pack of cigarettes. Never got the bullets. Things have gotten a lot better upstairs since then, Jack, and I am sure one of these days I will put the weeds away for good.
Until then, I'm an asshole.
