My addiction began as an 11 year old

my addictions









I had tried my first menthol cigarette. I liked the taste, I liked the elegant white filter, I liked the thought of being a "ciggy smoker".

The adults had warned me about this thing called "addiction". They told me I "would get addicted if I smoke".

What was this addiction thing, I wondered. I wanted to see what it felt like, I wanted to get addicted.

So I smoked menthol cigarettes and did my best to get addicted. It worked. I'll never forget just before my 12th birthday waking up craving a cigarette.

I had begun my lifelong addiction to nicotine. By my mid 20s little did I know, I would completely give into cigarettes.
