Learn with Allen Ginsberg (not to smoke)

Posted in Inspiring poetry with tags , , , , on June 22, 2011 by echostains



Allen Ginsberg  was one of the original Beat poets who were in prominence in the 1950s.  I am celebrating 3 years of not smoking with one of his poems.  I shall be writing about Ginsberg and his contribution to poetry in a future post.  Meanwhile, please enjoy this (and don’t have nightmares).  If you want to know how I managed to stop smoking 40 cigarettes a day, please read the post I wrote on echostains when I had given up for one year.
