Cigarette smoking is responsible for more than 480,000 deaths per year. That should be the reason I decided not to smoke right? Truth is my mother smoked Kool cigarettes on a regular basis, she was a smoker. The stinky smell doesn’t stop me or the lung disease it may cause is not what keeps me from smoking. I watched my mother’s boyfriend take a lit cigarette and continuously burn her all over her legs as if he was trying to put the cigarette out. He did it with no facial expression or no sense of remorse. As I think back over memories such as this I know this “man” was truly sick. No person in their right mind could possibly torture someone like this. Women I know you love that man and your heart tells you “It’s not that bad” but your mind has to tell you, you are worth more than being someone’s ashtray.
