the community for those who smoke and LIKE IT
Hi all. I know this community has been pretty quiet lately, but I think you guys are awesome. I'm glad that a community like this even exists. It's just a shame that it's not more active :(|
Anyway, I just wanted to share my little story of how I "came out" to my boyfriend. He's a smoker himself, but I didn't pick up smoking until pretty recently. So far, he's the only one who really knows.
I tried vainly to hide it from him. I guess I didn't really expect him to get after me about it, but I figured he might at least tease me.
I asked if it was ok for me to go outside for a minute. He said "sure" and I hid a cigarette and my cheap lighter in one hand.
I stood on his porch, fumbled with the lighter in the dark. I couldn't close the door all the way.
His roommate had his window open. He was watching Family Guy.
I took a drag, and aside from Peter Griffin, it was quiet.
I came back.
"Everything ok?" he said.
"Yeah....Don't yell at me"
He didn't understand until the next morning -- I left my pack next to my purse when I'd pulled out my meds.
We parted ways, him to go to work, me to go home. I blasted the A/C, trying desperately to cool down my car, when I heard a knock on my window.
"Give me one of your cigarettes. I don't have anymore of mine."
