Firstly the lines are amazingly detailed, even in thumbnail.

Also, I'm seeing it as a comment on the love-hate relationship between an addict and their drug. If you wanted to expand the theme, maybe draw a bin full of empty wine bottles? (I'm not suggesting getting them all first; back-fill the bin enough that a dozen or so bottles will be enough, and you might be able to get the bottles from a bar or restaurant for free/

Thank you! In a way it is, but to me the heart represents myself. Each cigarette is a persons story. It is a reminder not to let the stories of other people fill my heart. I do very much like the way you have seen it though as its shown me another meaning that applies to my life. I do have a love-hate relationship with cigarettes!

Ah, this is what I love about "good art". Different people can interpret the same piece different ways, particularly when they know different amounts of stuff about the artist.

The best art and music is like a mirror. It says more about the audience then it does about the artist by how they interpret it. That is what I try to do with both. Its why sometimes I will hear a song I've written and it sounds like love, other times like longing, occasionally like violence haha. I'm not the person I was the last time I heard it so it changes as I do. I try to do the same with art.
