    "I have an addiction, sir"

    1. The horror of having to face dire weather conditions just to light up.

    Winter is the cruelest season.

    2. Lighting up isn't as easy as it should be.

    It starts to get embarrassing when you're hiding behind a bin because the wind just won't quit.

    3. The cruel necessity of having to constantly have gum or mints on your person at all times.

    Because as much as we love smoking, nobody wants smelly breath.

    4. And needing to have aftershave/perfume in your bag.

    DreamWorks / Via

    Who wants to sit next to someone who smells like an ashtray?

    5. Looking down and realising you've accidentally burnt a hole in your clothes.

    Nothing is safe from the fiery ash.

    6. Or noticing that you've managed to burn yourself, AGAIN.

    It can happen to even the most seasoned smokers.

    7. Going to buy your favourite pack only to discover your local store doesn't have it in stock.

    8. Or realising you're all out and all the shops are closed.

    First world problems.

    9. Noticing that it's costing more and more to indulge in your favourite bad habit.

    Can I afford a sandwich and a pack of Marlboros?

    10. "Social smokers" asking to bum a smoke are the worst.

    11. Constantly buying lighters yet never being be able to find one.

    Paramount Pictures / Via

    It's worse than when socks go missing in the wash.

    12. So then you have to contemplate using the hob.

    Which comes with the risk of singed eyebrows, eyelashes, hair.

    13. Forever being told that it's bad for you.

    *Rolls eyes*

    14. And the inevitable judgment you receive when people find out you smoke.

    It's my life and I'll smoke if I want to.

    15. Knowing that you should really quit.
