Transcript Smoking Desire I lied. I admit it. Now spank my wrists and send me home. No, wait, I can't smoke there, either. You see, I decided I don't want my mother to know I smoke. So, I never told her. All she would do is lecture me on the evils of smoking, and I get enough of that from my friends. I don't need it from her, too. So, when my application for the Residence Halls came in the mail, I put down "Non-smoker," afraid that maybe they sent copies home to Mom or something. I was just hoping that when I put "no preference" down for my roomie's smoking habits, I'd get a smoker. Then, everything would be wonderful. Alas, that was not to be. When I saw her, I knew it was no good. First off, she was blonde. Blonde. Innocent. Pristine. A non- smoker. Mom was with me when we met. The first words out of her mouth sealed my fate. "You're not a smoker, are you? I have a bad allergy to cigarette smoke, and I just need to make sure." Great. Now what am I supposed to do? Tell the truth in front of Mom and everybody? No, I lied. After all, I could always change rooms later. So in we moved. I liked Roxy Music. She had every Brian Ferry album ever pressed. I liked Escher. The first thing she put up on her side of the wall was "Ascending, Descending." We had the same books. We had the same major (Communications). We wore the same shoe size. Just one fly in the ointment, so to speak. I smoke. First, I was subtle. After we were all settled in, I asked about her allergy. I was dying for a cigarette. I was hoping she was just fibbing about the allergy, like I used to fib about not liking milk in elementary school. No such luck. Well, time to go to the bathroom. On the way, I passed my RA. She saw my lighter. "You know, the only place you're allowed to smoke is your room." She actually smiled when she said it. Trouble. With a grumble, I walked to the stairwell. No one can stop you from smoking outside. For a while that worked. Well, remember how lousy the weather was last winter? Ever tried to keep a Bic going in a 50 mph wind? Plus, Patty had started sneezing. She swore up and down smoke was coming in from somewhere. I swore I didn't know where it was coming from. Somehow, I didn't want her to find out I had lied. I couldn't smoke in Itza Pizza, all our friends were there. I couldn't smoke in the Cafeteria. I was sick of sneaking off outside. I came to a decision ... I would quit. Cold turkey, not even finishing the pack, I was an angel. It's been eight days, now. Eight days, six hours, ten minutes and fifty-five seconds. I hate my roommate. I hate my RA. I hate my mother. I hate all of those disgustingly content nonsmokers. But I hate even more that rotten girl across the hall. She smokes. That's where the smoke was coming from. Patty's still coughing. I've decided that, since I flushed the pack, I'm going to smoke the cheap way. If you need me, I'll be across the hall with my nose pressed under Vicki's door. Inhaling. — Elizabeth Hargis Cigarettes were ever present in the dorms and Itza Pizza. They were not always welcome.
