“I used to smoke a ton, like two packs a day. I even smoked the ones without filters, because I just liked it better. After sometime, I started to feel a big pain in my lungs, as if my lungs were bursting. It hurt so much that I quit. Honestly I regret ever smoking in the first place. Even now when I see something like, ‘young smoker’s lungs images’ it’s so scary.”
“It couldn’t have been very easy to quit smoking. How did you do it?”
“There is only one way for me to stop smoking. Throw away all of the cigarettes at my home. Students don’t have very much money, so they can’t buy more cigarettes.”
“Nevertheless, quitting seems difficult.”
“It’s incredibly difficult. However, if I speak frankly, since I quit smoking I could be, you know, more dignified. As a young person, I could do something better and gain dignity. I also could improve my relationship with my parents. I think it’s the best source of pride for me, although that’s the only one I have.”

“제가 원래 담배를 엄청 폈었거든요. 하루에 두갑씩 폈었어요. 필터까지 빼고 폈어요. 그냥 좋아서 폈어요. 그렇게 피다보니까 폐가 너무 아팠어요. 폐가 터지는 느낌이었어요. 너무 아파서 끊었을 정도에요. 솔직히 담배 핀게 후회되요. 지금도 ‘청소년 흡연인의 폐.jpg’ 이런거 보면 진짜 무서워요.”
“담배를 끊는 게 쉽지 않았을텐데 어떻게 끊었나요?”
“끊는 방법은 한 가지밖에 없어요. 집에 있는 담배를 다 버리면 되요. 학생이라 돈도 없으니 더는 담배를 못 사거든요.”
“그래도 끊기 힘들었텐데요.”
“엄청 힘들었어요. 하지만 정말 솔직하게 말씀드리면, 담배 끊으니까 좀 뭐랄까 당당해질 수 있었어요. 청소년으로서 뭔가를 더 잘 할 수 있다는 당당함도 생겼고, 부모님과의 관계도 나아질 수 있었어요. 그게 제 하나밖에 없지만 최고의 자랑거리인 것 같아요.”

Take your cautionary talesAnd take your incremental gainAnd all the sycophantic gamesAnd throw ‘em all away
Burn your TV in your yardAnd gather ‘round it with your friendsAnd warm your hands upon the fireAnd start again
Take the story you’ve been soldThe lies that justify the painThe guilt the weighs upon your soulAnd throw ‘em all away
Tear up the calendar you’ve boughtThrow the pieces to the skyConfetti falling down like rainLike a parade to usher in your life
Take the dreams that should have died ]The ones that kept you lying awakeWhen you should’ve been all rightAnd throw ‘em all away
With the time I wasteOn the life I never hadI could’ve turned myselfInto a better man
‘Cause there ain’t nothing you can buyThere is nothing you can saveTo fill the hole inside your heartSo throw it all awayWon’t fill the hole inside your heart
Help me to empty out this houseThe wool I’ve gathered all these daysAnd thought I couldn’t do withoutAnd throw it all away
