Smoke by J00se Smoke by J00se
Smoking, tobacco or anything that rings that sort of feeling hits me on personal notes. My dad smokes, and I pray so hard everyday that he would stop, but ultimately, it's his choice. In no way is my dad a horrible person. It often hurts to hear people calling out smokers for being terrible and stupid. My dad does not have many emotional outlets, so his are alcohol and smoking. Lucky for me though, he does not abuse these. He is very reasonable with smoking and alcohol. But, still, it hurts to hear sometimes from people in my neighborhood "I saw your dad smoking..."

So what!?!?! I don't understand what they are trying to say lol. Yeah, I know it is frowned upon, and I know that he probably knows that he is killing himself. But, I can't force anybody to stop, and it's their decision.

Anyways, besides the emotional crap, smoking isn't cool and really, this is how you end up. Like the light on a cigarette, you will be smoldered and fuse out. Smoking isn't glamorous, it is not cool, it is not edgy, it's just one of the many ways to go and trade your health for temporary emotional comfort.

I'm sorry for not really making this look ugly, I honestly do regret it a bit, but I think I was thinking more of my own venting out than actually trying to please a judge. I regret not working on this more, but time only permits so much :'D

Oh btw, made with gouache. I finally used it after buying some in the store! I think it is my favorite thing now lol.
