Summary: I have an intense fear of death and have things I want to accomplish without subjecting myself to an early one by throat cancer, so I quit smoking so that I could sleep at night and not lay awake imagining my own demise over and over. Quitting has mostly improved my ability to sleep, except for when it doesn't. Damnable mortality. Then, I talk about my hopes and dreams. Also, there are dancing cigarettes!
