Addiction

      Today I watched a man risk his life for a cigarette.  He pulled up next to me at the red light, got out, went to the back of his hatchback truck, pulled out a pack of cigarettes, and got back in the driver's seat.  It was cold and dark on a November highway this morning, cars whizzing by at highway speeds.
     I can't imagine an addiction so powerful, you would risk your life for "it."  Addicts must be some of the saddest people on the planet.
