I’m always shocked when…

…I see one of my friends light up a cigarette.

Especially when I experience them as strong, health-conscious women.

Maybe they are just the social smoke, that saves it for alcohol-infused social gatherings…or maybe not.

Why?

Why do you smoke cigarettes?

Eco-feminists: Why do you ingest those levels of nasty-ass chemicals when you also understand the traumas that Mother Earth goes through and connect that to the female body? (Is this a gnarly blind spot for your very own ecofeminist outlook?)

Do you realize that you are choosing the unfortunate fate for your very own fleshy space-traveling vehicle?

😦

    1. Yeah! My mom was always the wild one who who gag in front of smokers and call them out and been intentionally rude. I don’t do that to any friends. I just walk a few steps away if the smoke gets on me…sometimes I want to take it out of their hands and scream. But I just stay silent -_-

      1. My mother died of COPD, and acute Asthma, she was 50. My dad died of a stroke directly related to his life time of smoking. I saw them as a perfect example of what not to do. Yet, my sister has smoked most of her life on and off. I get angry about it but I realized it is her choice. I will be sad if her health deteriorates because of it but she has to live with the consequences.
