 Okay, for whatever reason, it seems that smoking is synonymous with being a lesbian.Yes, really. Pay attention to the movies and TV shows. Every time you see a lesbian, you also see a cigarette dangling from her lips.

Oh, it’s not just about the times either. Even in the newest movie, “The Kids Are All Right” they smoked. Good movie, by the way.

So, smoking makes lesbians look cool. Smoking makes Dykes look meaner. Yea. Yea. I can look mean without a cigarette.

Not to long ago, I decided to quit smoking and after 30 something years of feeding my bad habit, I finally see a light at the end of the tunnel and no, it’s not a lit cigarette. LOL

I have been using the e-cigarette to curb my desires for nicotine. No, it’s not without its dangers, but neither is smoking. And no! It hasn't been easy! Trust me.

I am down from a pack – pack and a half to 5 cigarettes a day. That’s right, 5 and I intend to cut that number down, too. Yea me!

I’m not going to tell you, you need to quit. It’s a personal choice, but I can tell you that if you’re as cheap as I am, you’ll see the benefits almost immediately. And for me, money is a great motivator, especially since I was paying almost $10.00 for a pack. Do the math…

Here’s where I’m supposed to say, if I’m cranky or irritable please forgive me, but I’m not going to. Maybe I’ve dealt with my non smoking friends irritability for so long, I just want to be fucking cranky.

Either way, buckle your seat belts and say a prayer for me, I’m in it for the long haul. Oh yeah...would anyone be willing to bail me out if I lose my mind?


  1. Good luck! I know the James Dean looks good with dyke cheekbones, but it would be great if we could stop! It is very much a sign of the group, along with a few other activities...we won't mention those!

  2. Thanks Steph! I appreciate all the support I can get right now :0)

  3. Dear lord, my husband's a lesbian!
