Demi is having fits right now. Her mom has been letting her smoke for about a year, and now that she's out of cigarettes Richard and I refuse to buy any more for her. It's painful to watch somebody go through withdrawal, but I think for those who know me, it goes without saying that I do not supply children with cigarettes or anything more addictive than sugar. I even told Demi that she'd have to go down to the street by herself to smoke, and I usually don't like her to hang out on our street by herself (which makes her nervous). Hell, I wouldn't let her cross the street by herself until last year. But I told her that's the price smokers have to pay, hanging around outside with bums and weirdos while everybody else gets on with their lives. And woe betide her if she gets caught.
Richard is somewhat willing to compromise: $30 a pack. He offered to get the gum for her, but she can't stand it.
This is very sad. And infuriating.
