Does the essay "A Nonsmoker With a Smoker", by Phillip Lopate have anything related to my thesis paper on fear causing people to do what they do? I'd love someone else's perspective. Thank you!

  2. Did you find any quotations in particular that could be used as evidence for my thesis?

    I was leaning more towards the idea of the main character(narrator) being afraid of being replaced by the cigarettes within their relationship. Thus causing him to remain neutral in the fear of facing something he does not have the ability to change.

    How does that sound? Would that be a good argument to include in my essay? Any suggestions?

  3. I couldn't find the entire essay online, but I did read summaries of it.

    Your ideas are good.
