So on Wednesday evening I finally ran out of tobacco, Thursday was going to be the day that there was none left and officially I was going to stop right… Here is an interview that was recently held with my body in response to what happened next…
Interviewer: So you woke up on Thursday morning, how did it go?
The Brain: It started off well, a cup of coffee and checking the emails as is normal. The day progressed and at around 10 am the body was not happy, the signals were flying around “Nicotine Nicotine NICOTINE”
Interviewer: So what did you do next, did you try and distract the body?
The Brain: Well I decided to take the body for a walk, perhaps that would quieten the signals down. So we went to the room, got the earphones and put on the shoes. That was when the darn eyeballs spotted the forgotten spare tobacco lying on the cabinet. Once the eyeballs recognised what it was the signals went through the roof, I could not stop the motor-skilled organs from reacting in time. I tried though I swear it.
Interviewer: So eyeballs, what is the story there, could you not have just been invisible to the tobacco in that moment?
The Eyeballs: Well to be honest I was not searching (rolls skywards) but as the body was exiting the room I just happened to spot it lying there on the cabinet.
The Brain: Yeah right it smells of a set up to me and don’t you roll yourself at me either!
The Eyeballs: I swear it, besides you the brain were supposed to throw everything away!
The Brain: I thought I HAD and now I am quite worried about this disease called Alzheimer’s because I really didn’t know it was there REALLY I swear it.
Interviewer: Right then, so we will accept that you the brain did not remember and the eyeballs just were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now Lungs, how are you doing since that fateful Thursday?
The Lungs: To be honest I am quite disappointed in the Hands, Arms, Brain and Eyeballs, I feel that they have let me down. Since then though we have had a blamestorming session and have come to an agreement.
Interviewer: What is that?
The Lungs: That come Monday all tobacco is annihilated like the bad guys in Terminator, this time though there will be no “I’ll be baaaack”. By the way does that Austrian know yet that he isn’t Californian?
Interviewer: *ahem* I am not to sure, the last I heard was that he had taken up surfing. Now are you sure that the body can do it this time round, I mean if you look at how easy the Brain, Eyeballs and the rest of the body reacted to tempatation?
The Brain: To be honest with you it was not my fault as I have said, I did not know that that stupid stuff was on the cabinet, the arms and hands are at fault. If they can’t behave I have made the executive decision to lock the whole body in the room where it sleeps hiding the key until the need passes and normality returns.
Interviewer: That sounds quite harsh don’t you think
The Body: Not at all, we are tired of smoking and wrecking our organs, we want out no matter what it takes
Interviewer: Honestly now do you really think it will work this time, that the body will quit?
The Body: We are of human breed but we will endeavour to keep on trying, this time though I think its positive… if all else fails we will blindfold the eyeballs.
Interviewer: We will see won’t we, I await the outcome with excitement, good luck!
The Body: Can we have a glass of wine?
