A few years ago, a young girl with long black hair was standing in line at a local grocery store when she noticed a stall selling unicorn incenses.
“I thought, Wow, that’s awesome,” the girl, who asked to be identified only as Anna, told me.
But the unicorn incendiaries weren’t what Anna had in mind.
“There was no smell,” she said.
“You couldn’t even tell it was there.”
Anna was a convert to the herb, and in a few short years, she had turned the stench from the store into an obsession.
After Anna stopped buying her own incense, she bought a bottle of her favorite brand of unicorn incenzas, and soon she was vaping them herself.
“They were amazing,” she told me, laughing.
I had so many friends who used them.
I was like, Wow.”
But the incense didn’t make Anna happy.
“The flavor of unicorn is a lot stronger,” she continued.
“It’s so strong that I don’ want to be able to smoke it anymore.”
The incense made Anna nervous.
She’d never tried incense before, and she was terrified to get a whiff.
“And I thought, Oh my God, if I’m not careful, I could catch a cold or something,” she recalled.
“Then I got scared because the smell was awful.”
She kept smoking incense for two months and eventually quit altogether.
But Anna continued vaping and eventually started her own business.
She made incense to make candles, made incenses to keep warm and perfumed herself, and eventually launched her own Etsy shop.
She was working on her first book, and when she decided to publish it, she asked her mother for help.
Anna’s mother, Marjorie, who is Jewish, was hesitant.
“But then I thought about it,” she explained.
“Because when you’re a kid, and you smoke incense and you’re going to school, and everyone’s around, you don’t really want to make noise.”
She took Anna’s advice, and Anna began writing the book.
The book, titled Unicorn Incense, was published last month by Amazon.
It was an emotional and personal read, and it was also a critical step toward helping Anna stop smoking.
“We’re all very scared,” Marjory said.
Marjories family has been living with chronic asthma for nearly three decades.
“My mom’s breathing problems are a chronic disease,” she added.
“She can’t stop breathing, and the incenses keep her alive.
Marjore has been working to stop smoking for a while now, and as part of that effort, she decided she needed to share her family’s story. “
So I’m really thankful to have gotten this book out there.”
Marjore has been working to stop smoking for a while now, and as part of that effort, she decided she needed to share her family’s story.
When I met her, she was sitting on a couch in a Manhattan apartment, surrounded by her family and the rest of her life’s work.
She explained that for years, her mother had asthma and that her breathing problems had been chronic for years.
Marjoory’s mother suffers from lung disease, and asthma can cause the body to produce large quantities of toxins that can damage the lungs and cause the condition to flare up again.
“This is really hard for people to understand,” Marjoories mother told me as she described Marjores asthma.
“If you have chronic asthma, it’s like your body is telling you, ‘Oh, you’re sick.
Your lung is bad.
She explained how her mother has had a constant coughing fit. “
And it can be very difficult to understand that, because that is the message that your body sends you.”
She explained how her mother has had a constant coughing fit.
“When she’s coughing, she can’t get up,” Marjeys mother said.
And it’s the same for Marjorys father.
“He’s a total smoker,” Marjonas father explained.
Marjon, who has asthma as well, has been prescribed inhalers, and he’s taken them for three months, but Marjors father told me his lungs are not doing well.
He has had asthma for years and has not been able to quit.
“As far as I know, he has no other way of venturing out of his home,” Marjerys father explained to me.
“His lung is so damaged, and I can’t even smoke incenses because he can’t breathe.
And now, if he does smoke, I can only exhale.
He can’t inhale.
I have to breathe.”
Marjoors father was diagnosed with bronchiolitis obliterans, which is a chronic inflammation of the bronchial tubes, and his lungs have been getting worse.
Marjeries father was treated with the inhalers and eventually began smoking incenses again.
But Marjoris father is not immune to asthma and has had trouble breathing for years; he suffers from chronic obstructive
