Arash’s Life As A Smoker

In Life As A Smoker, ARASH talks to his twenty-seven year old Grandson Mohammad about his life as a smoker.

Arash:  Smoked for 49 years.  Now I suffer until I’m dead.  I read in this book my girlfriend Alma gave me that what I have is a slow, suffocating, miserable death.  When I read that, things changed.  I don’t think she knew that it said that or else she would have never of given it to me.  Regardless, it deeply depressed me.

It is sad young man!

Ah, it’s no use, no use, no use.  I’d give anything, an arm, a leg, just to be able to breath again, Mohammad.  Just wish I could do what I used to do.  I walk twelve feet and you see how I get.  Feels like a sumo wrestler is standing on my chest, Mohammad.

That’s why I always stressed to you, well, ALL my grandchildren…don’t smoke.  Look at me and that should cure anybody that wants to smoke.

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks!
