Posting this is a reward to myself for having finished one of the two major essays that I have to finish in, like, one day.
I have a little bit of a confused relationship with cigarettes and smoking.
Basically, I love the aesthetic of smoking. I love the act of it, the inhaling and holding a cigarette between two fingers and how a person looks when they light one. I hate everything involved with it, the smell, the health hazards etc etc but I love the look of it. I know this makes no sense but I do not care because some of the sexiest RL people I've ever met in my whole life were really sexy because they smoked, not in spite of it. One of my sexiest memories is sitting in a shisha cafe with friends one summer and watching one of my male friends let his shisha smoke just curl out of his mouth and float up and away and being really, really turned on. (It might have been the shisha too but it was really hot.) I remember the first time I ever had a cigarette (I don't actually smoke) and someone teaching me how to do it properly and watching my friend Lola smoking and how hot she was.
I know some people who've quit, both in RL and on my flist, and if you've quit than GO YOU. My grandmother quit smoking after she had her first stroke and I'm so happy for her, because it means I'm going to have her around for longer.
and I'm lucky, because most of my fandom life caters to me really liking it when sexy people smoke, so here's a little picspam. and since it's a picspam it is officially guilt-free because there's no actual smoke involved! Cigarettes: SEXY FROM A DISTANCE
