It’s strange… sometimes when I’m taken aback by some new information, when I feel like the carpet has been yanked out from under me, I get the urge to wander off and smoke a cigarette. The strange part is that I’ve never smoked. The very few tobacco products I’ve tried have had no effect on me other than to make me sick. But between movies and observing all my friends who smoke, it feels like the natural thing to do. I mean, if I just go and sit on the back step, what will I do with my hands?
Such is the effect of society’s conditioning.
