Ode To Nicotine
Author: Catyrose


I threw you away today
My life long friend
It is time for our days to end

Through the years weíve stayed together
Tears of rain fall from my eyes
No longer will I live this lie

Iíll miss you each morning, noon and night
Old habits die hard, Iíve heard them say
Still, without you I will learn to face each and every day

The road ahead will not be easy
I'll lock myself away till the pain subsides
And learn to take it all in stride

Iíll think of you every now and then
You took my very breath away
Yet without you I may live to face another day

Yes, I threw you away today
My soon to be long lost friend
Our time together has finally come to an end

------- Author's Notes -------

Written in the throes of withdrawal...(not very good and kind of cheesy)

I'm proud of you....

Be proud of yourself for recognizing your worthiness to live free of the (literal) choke hold this has had on you, and taking control. One of the most important lessons we can learn in life is that we MUST love and care for ourselves first, before we can have anything to give to others. Isn't it great, to not be living your life under a cloud of smoke?

As always thank you for your kindness and encouragement.

Well MS. K I'm behind you all the way, you need support I'll be there. I know you can ride out this storm of Enticement, I know you'll feel better inside and out without that smoke.
I'm Proud of you for taking this step Summer one I'll pay for a shared lunch as a reward ; - )
