it has cost me so much money over the years
it is truly a disgusting dirty habit
i don't want to spend the rest of my life doing this
it will make the wife happy
it is not big and it is not clever
it locks me into things from my past which it shouldn't
i should never have started in the first place
i will feel healthier within a short space of time
stopping dramatically increases your vocal range
most of all because i want to
for all these reasons
today will be the day i smoke my last cigarette ... ever
i hereby promise ...
never to be an ex-smoker bore ... will never tut at other smokers ... will never lecture others about the ills of smoking ... will not stare at cigarette packets like a love lorn teenager
i can't promise ...
not to crave one every time i drink more than two vodkas ... get crabby in the morning because all i wanna do is smoke ... chew gum like mad every time i get nervous (yes i promise to remove the gum before going on any stage anywhere)
you must promise ...
never ever to offer me a cigarette (my name is steve i am an ex addict) ... not to think every time i am pissed off it is because i want a cigarette (sometimes i am just pissed off) ... support me in my endevour to live longer (i know ... there's the rub) :)
