What can I say that I've broken the Baha'i Fast so that I won't be overly anxious on a busy day at the restaurant? Using my arms and back to wash dishes. Tactile placement of the feet around co-workers. Remembering every detail needed for deliveries. Baha'u'llah has exempted heavy labor from the Fast. I couldn't do my work without constant water and a store of calories. But what of smoking on work days? What would God think? The fact that I'm overly anxious at work without them has made me know how addicted I am. So anxious as to question whether I should quit work. "Don't do that to me again," my body tells itself, "last night was too much anxiety to simply be without smokes." I suppose my soul will go to a tier of the afterlife where people are addicted to cigarettes.
Curling tendrils of tobacco haze engulf the tiny space, hang like ringlets over shots of whiskey and mugs of warm beer. A solitary dancer moves, bracelets janglin’ and eyes heavy with kohl, captures old men in mid drink as her hips sway to Nina Simone. Her bronze skin glistens with the hot stares of the audience; she soaks it in, twirls on bare feet in perfect time as the high priestess of soul bewitches us with heavy grooves. I close my eyes, tap fingers against glass, whisper Nina’s words into the smoke and breathe them back in again. This is jazz, I think out loud, this is pure unadulterated heat.
I'm proud of myself and I have something to say. I quit smoking last year on the 3rd of May. It was one year ago when I smoked for the last time. When it came to spending money for tobacco, I haven't spent a dime.
I was coughing up phlegm and I quit smoking because of my health. My uncle died of lung cancer and I didn't want to do that to myself. Because I was able to quit smoking, I know others can too. If you smoke but decide to quit, it will be an excellent thing to do.
Burning tobacco has an unreal fragrance of tobacco leafs maybe I'm addicted to her like cigarettes or I'm in grief in brief every night I smoke to cut down my life by Six minutes and rest in peace with your grave !
I'm happy to say that I quit smoking half a year ago. It's been six months today since I last smoked tobacco. When I was presented with the opportunity to quit, I decided to reach out and grab it. All that I needed was some nicotine patches and faith in God to be able to kick the habit. I quit smoking even though it's not an easy thing to do. If you're a smoker who wants to quit, I believe in you.
