kicking the habit

Susan tried everything to quit smoking. She tried hypnosis, acupuncture, medications, even tried going cold turkey. She always ended up smoking again. On one occassion, she vowed to only smoke when she drank, but then realized she was buying bottle after bottle of wine, just so she could have that cigarette. When she did manage to quit for short times, she gained a ton of weight, or got so cranky, her husband ended up buying her cigarettes.

Then one day she quit. Never smoked again, never craved, never gained any weight, never drank wine, and never got cranky.

She died.

This little tale of addictions and cravings is brought to you by the folks at Friday Fictioneers. Thanks for reading. Oh, and find a better way to quit smoking than the method Susan used.
