Dying For A Fag

by Julie Anne Robinson
Originally published by on 08/12/2017

June had smoked for over thirty years. Recently, the smoking began to affect her health. She wheezed at rest, her chest rattled, she was breathless and had a constant hacking cough.

The doctor diagnosed chronic lung disease and informed June that she needed oxygen to help her breathing. He strongly urged her to stop smoking.

June tried but felt unable to quit. Despite being informed of the flammable nature of oxygen, she continued to smoke. That was, until the day of the explosion.

June often said she was dying for a cigarette. On this occasion that was never more true.
