Ugh I know this sounds so bad, but I have been tempted to start smoking lately. This never happened when I lived in the US and thought it was gross but in Japan sooooo many people smoke so you are breathing it all of the time, and all of my friends as well. Plus there is alot of stress for me right now and that has made it cross my mind alot. There is a cig vending machine right outside of my apartment building and I am sooo tempted to head out and get some. I know 3 close people who have died related to excessive smoking and my dad who quit has had health problems related to it. I know its bad and I shouldnt do it but I keep thinking about it.
