You stole your fathers cigarettes to get him to quit, but he didn’t, until he
died. Now you have started smoking since you were 15; here it is 30 years
later you are still smoking. But you even had a heart attack, you think you
would quit then, but no, you didn’t. Then here it is two years later, you have
quit now for six weeks, and the reason you quit is because of a foster
child that you have every other week.
