Two years and three months have gone by without smoking a cigarette. My lungs can take some hiking now, and my asthma is like a childhood memory.
I smell pretty now – instead of like an ashtray.
I rarely think about smoking anymore, and when I do, I think how great it is to be free from nicotine.
And, then, from out of nowhere comes a flashback of lighting up and taking a drag. My subconscious grabs this image and decides, “a cigarette would be so good now!”
But I am wise to the sneaky-assed tactics you use to manipulate my mind. You are clever, I’ll give you that. You have all my buttons memorized and on your speed-dial.
Is your real name Insula? I have read that damage to the Insula in the brain will stop addiction to cigarette smoking. Well. Isn’t that special? Deep down I think I suspected this all along…
In order to get rid of you once and for all, I must have a lobotomy.
You truly ARE a Bitch!!
