Candy cigarettes have officially been banned by the Food and Drug Administration.
The ban is a part of the Family Smoking Prevention and Control Act. Officials have been arguing for years to eliminate candy cigarettes because of the likelihood that children would eventually move on to the real thing.” —
Uhm… I’ve been buying and smoking [read: eating] candy cigarettes for years. I’ve never felt that they would lead me to ACTUALLY smoking. I mean, I knew they would lead me to harder things, you know, like Razzles.
I’m so upset right now.
… I’m literally weeks away from living here. I have a lot of decisions to make, but I can’t be worried that I will make the wrong one, because I am thankful that I have options. Things may not be working out in the ways I had expected, but rather in a more positive and wonderful way than I could have ever planned.
I guess I knew things would be alright, but it felt right to have anxiety about such a swift, all-encompassing life change. It felt more stressful to not be anxious.
Today is June 18th. I should be in Fresno with my car, my record collection, my books, my bike, my computer and my cat by July 18th. At the very least I’ll be less than an 8-hour drive away.
That’s 30 days and counting, you guys. This is really happening.
