Quitter II

I want a lover, wife and more

I want an income, a good one

I want a child, my immortality

I want a home, comforting and secure

I want friends, to trust and share with

But what I really want, desire, Need

Is a cigarette…

The cigarette does the smoking - you're just the sucker. :-)

WOW-your readers are awesome. I agree with shy machete. If you are gonna bother with something that is gonna kill you, take the hard drugs. They are easier to quit and I would venture to say it's worth it if you learn your lesson soon enough. Of course, you could also die. Took me 5 years, but I did learn. I have never smoked cigarettes, except when I dipped them in coke. The numbness is nice. :)

Cigs...much harder.
