Young Smokers in Geneva


Beautiful sunflower on our balcony
to start off this smelly episode.
Young Smokers in Geneva_c0201334_6334846.jpg

First of all, I don't smoke.

Recently, someone asked me,
"Do you have cigarettes on you?"
And I was offended013.gif

Do I look like a freakin' smoker?!

A friend who happened to be there said,
in attempt to calm me down,
"The people in the fashion industry often smoke, that's why."

Hmm, she's good.
A smooth recovery.

Anyhow.

I hate cigarettes.
It smells, it's low class, it's unhealthy.

How did someone think it was a good idea
to render one's mouth into an active chimney??

California, thus, was heaven for me.
Few people smoke and smoking is prohibited indoors.

Fallen from the skies,
I'm surrounded by walking chimneys in Geneva.

When I'm in town, I have to be constantly on guard
because I don't want myself and my expensive bag to get burned.

Sometimes I'd like to sit outside at a café to enjoy the weather,
but the smokers in the patio seats completely ruin it for me.

But more than anything,
what shocks me the most about the smokers in Geneva is that
so many young kids smoke!!!

Just the other day,
I got on the tram and saw a young boy holding a cigarette box.
He couldn't have been more than 13 years-old.
Unfortunately, I see groups of young smokers regularly.

What are their parents doing?
(The parents are probably smokers themselves, too.)


And what makes this even sadder is that they're short.
I mean, of course they haven't even hit puberty,
they haven't finished growing.

They might think they're soooo COOL smoking right now,
but in a few years
when they remain short because smoking stopped their growth,
will they still think it was that cool??

Tragedy.

Why do people smoke??
I understand why in theory, but I just don't get it.

It's a miracle practically all my friends are non-smokers!!
I love my friends016.gif
