Cigarettes are fickle little friends

Occasionally when you get your paycheck, you might want to splurge on an expensive outfit. Whether it’s a new dress or a new suit, everyone likes to have things they can wear that give them that little extra boost of confidence. Something to make you feel really good.
This power outfit can be used to put an extra spring in your step when you have an important meeting with a client or boss, a first date, or any other event that makes you nervous. When you’re nervous, you probably don’t need just a new outfit. If you’re a smoker, you’ll also want a cigarette. Or two. Or three. Or four. However many you can suck down in the car, on your break, or before he picks you up.
But watch out. A cigarette might seem like a good friend to calm your nerves, but it’s just sitting between your fingers waiting to bite you. To ruin any potential chances of your nerves being calmed. Cigarettes are fickle little friends.
If you’re nervous, you’re more likely to be a little rough with the cigarette. You could easily flick it into your lap. Or the wind could knock the cherry off while you’re flicking ashes out the window.
A cigarette might seem like a great friend while you’re inhaling it to calm your nerves, but a burning cherry in your lap is a whole different story. As that hot little cherry lands in your lap, you better believe it’s going to burn. Your reflexes will kick in to brush it away as soon as it hits. Your palm or finger, or which ever part of your hand meets it, will get burned too. A stinging, scathing ember brushing against your sensitive hand. If you’re lucky, the first brush will do the trick and the cherry will be gone. Most of the time it will take two or three or four chances. That’s four burned spots on your hand and fingers and at least five on your laps and legs.
You’re going to focus on the physical pain of the burn at first. What you don’t notice is that the pant leg of your suit or the skirt of your dress has at least one hole. That’s from the first drop. If you’re lucky the second spot is just a black round burn. The third is black and ash. Speaking of ash, it’s everywhere. All over your legs, lap, and probably on your chest too.
And that’s when the meeting starts or your date arrives. You’re in pain. Your new outfit is ruined. This is the fickle nature of your nicotine-laced friend. Hopefully you’ll still ace the meeting with burn holes in your pants or dress. Or your date will be really impressed. Smoking is seen as a liability by most people. The inability to keep a cigarette in your hand just worsens it.
Next time you’re nervous, put down the cigarette and try some breathing exercises instead. Visualize succeeding in the task that you’re nervous about. These calming methods won’t burn you. Or ruin your pants.
