My first cigarette at 9 years old.

The building where I had my first cigarette is no longer there, it was where the person is standing and went to the right.

I Have to thank my 11-year-old sister for getting me hooked on cigarettes early. 9 years old, next row of houses, in Keegan Court was where she gave me my first. I remember getting sick and throwing up the rest of the day. Of course, then my sister took me to a place in Stabb Court, remember, I wasn’t supposed to be there. She took me to a house with an older man, who gave me a drink, whiskey and Pepsi maybe, and another cigarette. I was well on my way to a lifetime of smoking and drinking, at 9 years old.
