message on a park bench

I have tried to quit smoking for almost 6 years. Longest period I have actually managed to be without cigarettes is about three months. It was a beautiful time—I was afraid that I would die soon and had a nice conscious awareness of all my surroundings. Now I have just resorted to smoking my friends' cigarettes and try to avoid buying a pack myself. If I buy a pack I tend to either finish it very fast or throw it away after having smoked three or four cigarettes in a short timeframe.

Today late evening I left one pack on a park bench. I hope some like-minded bypasser picks these up, lights just one, leaves remaining on the same bench and continues on his/her way through the calm and cool autumn night.
