So, UG... I need some personal advice. A simple Yay or Nay will do. I am really feeling like a cigarette right now, but I'm out right now, and don't have a car. My only option is to either wait until tomorrow and get a pack, or walk to a gas station right now (roughly a mile and a half to walk) and get a pack.

Operation "WaitTillMorning" will save me from the cold of an autumn night as I walk alone next to a busy roadway.

Operation "GoGetCigsNow" will probably end up being an adventure of some sort and I will happily have my cigarettes right now.


You decide UG...


(If I wait till morning, my friend will give me a ride up there and we'll hang out all day tomorrow. If not, I hang out with him anyway tomorrow, but have to walk)

Will your adventure involve dragons and wenches? If so, by all means, get the cigarettes.
#4
Get smokes now. I'm craving one too.

I'll make you a deal I'll walk to the liquor store and get smokes which is a walk for me, if you do.

Drink a bottle of nyquil. You'll be good till morning.

If you think walking along a highway for 1.5 miles is going to turn out to be some sort of amazing adventure....by all means go for it. I personally think you're kidding yourself. It seems like you're making excuses just because you can't admit to yourself that cigarettes control you.
#11

And to make the adventure even more exciting, go naked.
#12

Oh no, I admit it. I'm pretty much addicted and enjoy smoking regularly (not a pack a day or anything, but maybe 2 or 3 a day for leisure).

I've actually been on many adventurous walks by myself, but never on this route and never strictly for cigarettes.

Deal.

I have to sink the Tur-Tanic, but I will commence my mission in about 5-15 minutes, depending on the flushing cycle.

I will return to this very thread and tell of my extraordinary adventure (or lack thereof) after my well earned smoke-a-thon

Fair enough. Go for it then. I could probably afford to get out of my apartment right about now.

I've walked plenty of times, two miles in heat, rain and snow. When I need one, I've got to have one, period.

You're killing yourself you know...

I joke. But you should get them now because the feeling will have passed by the next day, unless you have super strong cravings. Plus think of the adventure...

That's possibly the worst reason that exists for buying cigarettes

Yes, ladies and gentlemen... I now have cigarettes!!

...but not without a 5 mile long adventure.

I happen to have a friend who works all night stocking for a retail store. Since his job is so close to the gas station, and he was almost off work by then, I called him up and decided to hang out with him (because it's no adventure if you're alone). I got to the gas station, and LO AND BEHOLD!!! The cigarettes (Camel Lights for me) were buy one get one free... I was so happy I went ahead and got a Taquito as well to savor the moment.
After more walking, I met with my friend, and we began our walk back to civilization, and what do we see on the side of the road?
A bumper...
It was a nondescript green bumper... simply laying there. Right next to it was a car air freshener. The scent was "Black Ice", and it smelled like a generic cologne.
Naturally, we couldn't let this chance slide past us, so we picked it up (it was rather light) and began the long bumper trek back to his house (which we believed to be closer). On our way a cop pulled over and spoke to us, asking the usual questions, "are you drunk? are you high?" To which we replied, "Nope, not at the moment". Cop believed us and went on his way.

We reached a crossroad, and if you know anything about being a pedestrian in metro Atlanta, you know that it ****in sucks, cause the roads are big, the lights say you can walk when you can't, or the walk/don't walk lights don't work at all. As we found a safe spot to cross, we bolted, and luck would serve me to drop the Black Ice air freshener. We knew that this air freshener was a vital part of our journey, so when I found a gap in traffic (not a very large one I might add) I shot back into the intersection, found the air freshener, and made it back to the sidewalk with my friend just in time. I was almost roadkill...

As we walked further the burden seemed to grow heavier and heavier. This, added to a lack of sleep on my part, drove us to attempt to hitchhike the rest of the way. After about 50-70 cars speeding up past us, rather than slowing down, we took the hint. We continued on, until we had to stop one more time and take a break. We laid down on the sidewalk with the bumper next to us and rested. Many cars slowed down and stared at us, but none stopped to give us a ride. Soon, there was a police car coming our way with his sirens going. Apparently, someone had called the cops and said that it looked like a car had flipped and landed on us...

Yeah,...a car flipped, landed on us, and then just drove away without it's back bumper

So the cop drove off after we assured him there was no foul play afoot, and soon came another cop saying the same story. We told him the same thing, and he drove off. Within the next few minutes, we amassed a total of 5 cop cars to our struggle, and not one offered us a ride home.

After a long trek through mud, long grass, and ant piles, we made it to the home stretch!! We were within a mile of his house, when a friend of ours gave us a call, and soon drove by us, without stopping. Further down the road he stopped and told us he wouldn't let us put the bumper in his car. We offered many easy solutions (and we were right by the neighborhood by now, so he wouldn't have had to drive very far anyway...), but he refused to drive us. Instead he seemed to think that it would help our morale by following us nearly the whole way, creeping along and watching us, occasionally laughing.

Nevertheless, after our perilous adventure, we made it home, and I slept for about 15 hours after smoking about half the pack.

...it was a good day.

Congratulations?

Just in general, I'm so glad I'm not a smoker.
