I quit smoking yesterday and I am now thirty-six hours tobacco-free. My focus this time (and o how I've guilelessly tried before!) is on freedom. Freedom from profit-driven, amoral tobacco companies. Freedom from chemically induced non-decisions. Freedom from breathlessness (unless it is the good sort of breathlessness born of kissing and titilation). Freedom to delight in my pranayama. Freedom to run unfettered. Freedom to smell and taste exhaustively. Freedom to manifest beauty.
"The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion." - Camus
