“I became a favorite of some of the bad boys in school because they saw that I was the only person who was allowed to smoke so occasionally they would come for a stick of asthma cigarettes in the hope that if they are caught smoking they would say that it’s the asthma cigarette.
I was the only person that had the authorization to smoke. I became their friends because they needed my cigarette to show that they also had asthma.
