I had a smoking dream last night, first in many months. I had an almost-full carton of Marlboro Lights and I bought another. I was sneaking cigarettes in a house I had rented from a Harvard professor. An old girlfriend was hanging out. And I was smoking and feeling guilty. People were seeing me smoke but weren't saying anything. The funny thing is that during the dream I see myself as a non-smoker, and how unrealistic that is, since I'm actually smoking. I wake up. Still not smoking. 473 days. I want one this morning. I can almost taste it. Maybe some day I'll get a terminal disease and the doctor will say it's okay to start smoking again. The perverse thing is that in a way I look forward to that! Geez Louise.
