Dick Morrison's life has become a nightmare of addictions, filling his days with overeating, overworking, and smoking way too much. When an old friend tells him about a surefire way to quit, he's more than willing to give it a shot. But what Dick doesn't know is that Quitters, Inc. demands a high price from anyone who strays from their rigid rules-like a few volts of electricity for the nearest and dearest... or maybe a missing thumb? Forced to choose between his desperate need for cigarettes and the dire consequences of giving in to his addiction, Dick must decide just how important another drag really is.
Good stuff!!! But you can also buy five stories by Stephen King with only 11 bucks which includes this story. Just search for "Night Shift"
Great story, but....
The story starts in a bar, and Eric Roberts sounds like he's just been cut off by the barkeep. He slurs his words so much, some of it is intelligible. But, it's a King story so it's great. Just be ready to listen very, very hard.
