You are falling for the tall fair brown-eyed boy you always see in your chemistry class. You start spying, sending friend requests on social media channels as you track his activities. His participation in sports and athletic physique inspire you more. As you finally become friends, you begin to hang out. He smokes and you let him. He offers you a cigarette and you start till it becomes a habit. You accept his practices as being cool and see it as a norm. You do the same, sometimes out of love and sometimes due to the dwelling need. But when you two marry and you get pregnant, you are asked to quit smoking. Although, you manage to let go, you see your spouse follow the same routine when you finally raise your voice for saving your child. It continues for years, until your husband is diagnosed with lung cancer. Alas, you realize smoking is not cool!
