4 years ago today... / by Neil Blake

Four years ago today, as I usually did at the time, I grabbed my pack of cigarettes and headed downstairs to smoke. As I got close to the Ground floor, I discovered that I only had one cigarette left. While I smoked it, I thought about going for a walk to the store to get more while also thinking about my ex-girlfriend and the breakup we had just had. Julia had a large role in me starting to smoke again, and so it seemed like the perfect Time to quit, and so I did.
