  •  ok I won't bother... (none)
    Just be sure to dodge me on the street. I honestly don't want to set you off, and have no way of knowing to put it out if you show up. Though I would. In a second.

    and I go to work when I get sick, I don't have to compensate them for a damn thing.

    What the hell is it with people and this overwhelming fear of death. Fuck death, none of us can avoid it, and running around in panic over it is completely irrational.

    I go to the doctor maybe 2 or 3 times a year. I'm 33. I live with my aches and pains, I'm tough. I have insurance when I'm working, when I don't, I don't go. I know what I'll do should I get the big C, and the "angst" will not be a problem. I've been ready to kick off this dustball for years. I have no fear of it. I don't plan on leaving any time soon, but when it comes, it comes.

    Both my parents smoked while I was growing up, my mom smoked while she was pregnant with me (mind you it was the 70's) I'm of a mind that I didn't have much choice in the matter of the addiction. Yes, I do now, and I've tried.

    Come talk to me again if/when you've been through a 12 step. Cause smoking a cig is a hell of a lot better than the shit I USED to do.

    Addiction's a bitch. I wonder how much you know about THAT.

    And ya know what, fuck the sanctimonious attitude while you're at it. I don't deserve it, and the anger does nothing but hurt us both. I know mine has done me plenty of damage.

    I do the best I can with it, and how it affects others, and put NO burden on ANYONE else for my choices if I can help it at all. I AM responsible, for myself and my choices. I pay my dues, and pay my way.

    I'm sorry you're hurt by it, I'm sorry you feel that we should be shunned for it. I'm sorry I'm addicted and that it's the one last thing I can't seem to conquer.

    But damn it, those of us that choose to face our mortality, well, we deserve a place to go too. Don't we?

    •  Oh... one more thing... (none)
      thanks to CT reminding me...

      I get sick, ie upper respirtory infections, sinus infections, once about every 3 YEARS.

      I never get a flu shot, I never get the flu.
