Dear Marlboro Menthol Lights,

17 Nov

Our love affair has gone on for far too long and I think it is time to bid you adieu. It has been 10 years and you’ve hurt me so. Sure, there were good times in the beginning; all the fun parties, learning to blow smoke rings and preform cool lighter tricks. We met all kinds of interesting people in our travels together. However, as time goes on, I feel we should have grown apart.

I want to move forward and be a healthy person and you insist on getting more expensive. I can’t have my daughter grow up around you.  I am afraid she will chose to get involved with you the way I did in my younger, less caring, less intelligent years.  I can’t have that because I really feel you have done damage to me. I don’t want that for her.

Also, don’t think I don’t know you tried to give me cancer! I’ve tried to ignore it because of the feeling of ease I used to get from you; but now I am disgusted whenever my lips touch you.  You have made me a slave, and frankly, you stink.

It’s not me, it’s you. Goodbye former friend and habit.

And this time I mean it (I think),


Me and my "ex" in Hawaii
