    Not to be a downer, but my mother and my husband each died as a direct result of their smoking. Lung cancer isn't a nice way to go....

    I think the reason I started though is because I got depressed when my mom got cancer and my sister got pregnant and my other sister got to go to Europe for a year.

    I love to smoke..... man.. I did/could smoke 3 packs a day..

    but I quit several years ago.

    Man I want a cigarette :)

    I may smoke about 2 cigarettes a year... or maybe 5 cigars a year on the golf course or whatever.. if that counts.

    dude, you're a week older than i am and you smoke? damn...
    although i guess i shouldn't be surprised though--a good number of my friends smoke, but not tobacco :/
    i guess eventually i plan to try smoking, just to see what it's like. hell, i might like it--i rather like the smell of cigarette smoke. but i'll wait awhile ;)

    Cigarette smoke irritates my nostrils and makes the inside of my throat all itchy. One of those really annoying itches that you can never scratch. :confused:

    I don't condemn smoking, just ask to be aware of the health risks involved and not do it near me. :p

    There's farrr better ways to spend all that money you fork out on cigs. :eek: :D ;)

    I've never smoked, never intend to either.

    My parents never smoked. My dads parents never smoked either. My Moms parents did, my grandma got lung cancer, survived, so she quit and that convinced my grandpa to do so too.

    My grandfather smoked, my dad smoked heavily and then quit cold turkey after my younger sister was born.

    I did experimental smoking about five years ago when I had just started high school. It was only like, one or two cigarettes a day but it was a real drama cause I went to the most extreme lengths to hide it from my parents (they would have died if they had found out). I would take an extra pair of my school uniform and hide it in my bag and change into it before I went home so they wouldn't notice the smell. I even started doing my own laundry. I took the insides of texta's out and would stick em in there.

    Then one day, my throat started hurting and I freaked out thinking that I was getting throat cancer and stopped. Never looked back.

    Smoking is really unattractive (to me at least), I have a friend who does it simply because he gets bored. I know somebody else who thinks it makes him look cool.
    I have an unwritten rule to never date a guy who smokes.

    The urge to smoke only takes me when I drink, but when it does, it grips me like hell...!

    I don't touch a smoke from Monday to friday, but when the weekend hits & it's drinkin' time, I can smoke like a trooper...........15 - 40 Fri to Sat...

    Then back to not a touch on Sunday.... not great I know, but at least a pattern of behaviour.........

    Could do with a smoke now. but feeling weary at my keyboard.......

    I could see why you might have to sneak them. I am almost 19 and have never tried, dont really plan on it either.

    If my parents ever caught me smoking they would kill me.

    A little story...
    Before i was born my dad use to smoke. When my mom was pregnant with me she told my dad he had to stop smoking (she had been bugging him for a while to stop) or she was going to leave (not divorce or anything like that) and not come back until he stopped smoking. Needless to say he did stopp smoking and he ha not touched a cigar or anything in about 25-30. Both his brothers still smoke as do there wifes, and it is really digusting. About 2-3 years ago my grandfather died from smoking/emphazima...He was declining and had to be put on oxygen every night. Well he got up one morning doing all his normal stuff and just collapsed from lack of oxygen.

    Smoking is a bad habit to start and not one that should be started at your age. Just think of all the problems you could be causeing for yourself later down the road.

    Parliament Lights, about 10 a day.

    I started smoking when I was 17, kind of been off and on since then, but wish I never started in the first place. I've heard people say that once you're a smoker you're always a smoker because if you quit, even 30 years down the line you'll still get cravings every once in a while.

    The times I have quit have lasted about 6 months to a year, usually I start back up when I get into a really stressful situation (last time I started back up was during final exams, last semester of my senior year of college).
