magical. incomparable. the reason you must get out of bed at some point.

as you sleep, your body strengthens itself. some of the damage is undone - your throat feels clearer, your lungs more powerful, your heart steadier, your limbs calmer.

you step out into the warm 2pm sunshine, let the tea-leaf smell of new tobacco fill your nostrils.. you light the cigarette, inhale, blow a perfect cloud of cottony smoke through your lips.

and you feel normal again.
