Many of us have a few friends who smoke. Some socially while some are chain-smokers. I’ve been exposed to second-hand smoke since I was 18, when I went to college. I even tried a few puffs to know how it feels. Long story short, it wasn’t my thing and second-hand smoke really messes with my complexion.
Am I tempted to smoke? Sometimes. When shit hits the fan. But when I weigh the pros and cons (there are no pros in smoking for me), I choose not to. Smoking is a choice. I wish I wasn’t so embarrassed about telling inconsiderate smokers off, especially if I know them. If I don’t know that person, I’m more likely to go, “What the f***! Cough cough cough it’s so eff-ing smelly!”.
Here’s an Unlike Cigarette video I did with some Malaysian celebrities:
I should have worn make-up for this video. Don’t like how I look here, partly because the lighting I got wasn’t great. But for a good cause, close one eye lah!
