Smoke pros equals its cons!

Smoke

As you think about the things that revolve around your mind every day, you light up a cigarette. Either you are holding the stub between your index and middle finger or casually dangling it between your lips, you feel an instant rush to light it up. With the tobacco engulfing its white shield into ash, you feel the nicotine intoxicating your blood. The moment it reaches the brain, you enter an irrevocable state of mind redefining your previous one. When you are down the second one, you feel the light-headedness circumscribe you wholly. Your innermost thoughts become open and contemplative at the same time. Out of pure curiosity to ponder on that, you have the third drag. Now the thought has taken over you completely, you don’t want to let it go. You pull a long one and brainstorm the whole event at once. When the flicker touches the bottom, you understand why you will never get closure on smoking.

 

Smoke (your life)

As you think about the things that revolve around your mind every day, you light up a cigarette. Whether you are holding the stub between your index and middle finger or casually dangling it between your lips, what you don’t feel is the immeasurable agony that your lungs are going to endure. With the tobacco engulfing its white shield into ash, what you don’t feel is the havoc which the nicotine wreaks in your blood. The moment it reaches the brain, though you enter an irrevocable state of mind which redefines your previous one, you do remain oblivious to the irrevocable damage it has already caused like your favorite beer. When you are down the second one, though you feel the light-headedness circumscribing you wholly, what you don’t feel is the tar circumscribing the vessels of your trachea. As your innermost thoughts become open and you begin to contemplate, what also happens at the same time is the clogging of your innermost capillaries which slowly and steadily take your breath away. Out of pure curiosity to ponder further, you have the third drag and as the thought takes over you completely and you pull a long one to brainstorm the whole event at once, you can’t foresee how quickly tobacco takes over your life, someday ending it like a sudden event at once. And yet when the flicker touches the bottom, and you understand why you will never get closure on smoking, what you don’t understand is how sooner you are getting closure on your own life.

 

I am as amused by this comparison as you would be after reading this. It kind of balances everything.
