Clenching hands, that won't stop moving
Breaking out in dismal sweat
Looking at the cancer sticks
Feeling them beckon, like a magnet pulls iron
(But I was never that strong, I was always cheap aluminum)

I don't want to rot my lungs
~~Sweet, sweet nicotine~~
It is a disgusting habit
I don't want to break my long two months of breathing clean air
~~Sweet, sweet nicotine~~
Carcinogens, wretched breath, yellow teeth...
~~Sweet sweet nicotine~~

And finally, the craving has passed.
For once, I did not give in-I stood my ground.

Hope this isn't from personal experience, SD, but if it is--kick that habit in the butt!
