SPARE CHANGE #21: $2/trade, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 36 pgs.

Apr 27, 2012

Spare Change is penned by a Chattanooga punk who writes pretty extensively here about his long history and many attempts with quitting smoking. As a heavy smoker myself with a few non-smoking years under my belt, I could totally relate. He also talks about his challenges quitting in the face of adversity—the death of friends, the ending of relationships, the undercurrent of drinking acting as an impetus, and the joyous moments, too. While the writing and layout is frequently a little rough around the edges, it’s clear this dude’s got his heart in the right place. I could relate to a lot of the material here, but again, it could definitely stand to be cleaned up in the visual department.(Spare Change, PO Box 6023, Chattanooga, TN 37401)
