A Slave To Nicotine

This is not a mug shot or a drivers license photo. I thought the same thing.

Anyway, it’s safe to say that Maura Tierney of “E.R.” is a slave to cigarettes. Homegirl has been puffing for 20 years and tells Glamour Magazine (via P6) the lengths she will go to get her fix.

She said: “When I can’t have one, I’m fucked. I’ve found myself doing things I’m not proud of, like digging through the trash for a butt. Or smoking through bronchitis . . . During a five-minute break at work, I’ve had to make the decision: Should I pee, or should I smoke? I’ve tried to do both at the same time, and it’s not very satisfying.

When you’re going through the trash like a strung out crackhead, it’s probably time to step away and maybe put on a nicotine patch or two (or twenty). Shit, maybe it’s time to eat a box of fucking nicotine patches.

Although, I’m sort of the same way about coffee. One time when I was out of my drug of choice, I considered fishing out a dirty filter filled with used coffee grounds from the trash. I was thisclose. I took a deep breath and realized I had a problem. Instead, my lazy ass chose to drink a cup of hot water with like 20 bags or caffeinated Earl Grey tea in it.
