Her life without nicotine is quite disappointing as she can clearly see her useless being. She's a stranger in her own body and confronts her past, present and future. Her friends Marco and Kathy suggest various activities to fill her empty life and abstract her from cigarette obsession. There are a lot of hobbies to do, but Charlotte decides to swim and go jogging. She goes deeper in her mind and remembers about 1993, when she dated with her lover Robert and studied English Literature. She understood that her ex-boyfriend, who criticized her all the time, New York roommate-from-hell Cinder and former boss Mr. Bunder, a big fan of martini, have changed her life to what it is now.
She reflects on her childhood character, Anne Frank, who told her about physical and emotional flotsam that interrupts the stream of life. Being unable to stop atrophy, she has finally understood that she suppresses herself and is running away from reality. Now she can fight with her obsession and clear her life from useless jetsam. That moment has really changed her mind and awaked a new interest for life.
