Nicotine Fingers

by Christian Knobloch

Girls, his failed band, and baseball on the North Side, these are some reasons why Edwin smokes, but has the time come for him to quit?
Edwin has reached the peak of indifference. At age thirty-six, he’s starting to take a serious look at his current status as a bartender, a boyfriend of four years, and a smoker. He dropped out of college at age twenty to follow his dreams, only to have them shattered by a hazy night of drug use. Eleven years later, he finds himself working opposite hours with his girlfriend Zoey, who is forcefully trying to get him to quit smoking. Asked to play a one-off show with his former band Addison Street, Edwin is forced to address old emotions that he had long since tucked away. Despite his initial reluctance, this looming performance gives him a new perspective on his stagnant life. A youthful, more involved Edwin emerges from weeks full of band rehearsals and late nights of drinking and smoking. However, someone from his rock ‘n’ roll past returns, and he must decide whether or not his relationship with Zoey is worth opposite hours and constant nagging about his habit. After eighteen years, will Edwin end his longest relationship, with cigarettes, to save the one he has with Zoey?
