Smoking And Alienation
My Dear Smoker Friends,
I’m alienated by you.
Beyond the nicotine addiction, you need to smoke for whichever reason you do. I need to not feel like I’m suffocating with every breath I take when I’m with you. I need to not feel and smell like an ashtray when I go home. I’m sad and lonely and at a loss because our survival and self-preservation instincts are likely to drive us further apart than bring us closer together.
And it’s all because of a lousy cigarette.
