This is a picture back from the days in 2005 when I used to smoke almost 25 cigarettes a day.
Love this picture for various reasons, firstly it was one of the earliest composed pictures that I have ever taken, second, the pack of Davidoff cigarettes was a gift from a friend whose brother had just come back from the US and man, were they awesome cigarettes or what.

Ok! I agree I’ve been a smoker and ive been able to cut down or so:) Do you smoke?
@Vishal, not any more 🙂
Do you think that people judge someone based on whether they smoke or not? thoughts from an objective perspective?
@Ramanan Ramesh, I am more than sure that people are judged based on whether they smoke or not, especially in a country like India where outward habits and clothes more than often make a huge difference.
btw, relative newbie to WordPress, is Daily Prompt some universal series like thingie?
@Ramanan Ramesh, yes, do visit dailypost.wordpress.com to get Daily Writing Prompts and instructions. Let me know if you need any further assistance.
I like the composition of your photo, the graininess as an effect, and how it highlights and important message.
@Penny, thank you so much for the kind comment 😀
Its good for your health (& yr fly) that u have quit smoking.
@Kalpana, yes, it sure remains one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life so far 🙂
A nice picture…not so nice habit, though.
@Kajal, I know and that is why I quit 🙂
I admire people who can proudly say not any more…I am campaigner for no smoking, I should make you my speaker 😀
@Sugandha, I don’t know if I deserve those kind of compliments yet 🙂
Well, it’s good you don’t smoke any-more. 🙂
@Shilpa, for sure 😀
I have never smoked and never really had the desire to try. I have allergies pretty bad so the smoke from my parent’s and sister’s cigarettes used to make me sick. That said, I think it is quite an amazing feat that you have quit smoking. Bravo to you! ♥
@Kathy, thank you and yes it is something that I am proud of 🙂
25 cigs a day!! and you quit? *shocked and happy*
@Richa, it wasn’t 25 to 0 in one day, it came down to 15 and then to 10 and then to 7-8 and then to 3 and then to 0 over the course of a couple of years, but yes, I quit 😀
Yikes!! 25 a day?!! :O
Its good that you have stopped.. takes a lot of strength and courage
@pixie, yes, that truly is something that I am proud of 🙂
