I smoke cigarettes occasionally depending on how bad of a day I had. But its on an off. I'm the type of person who can go months without cigarettes and the spend then either weekend smoking them.

I also smoke weed. Was that too much? ha, well I don't smoke it often, I used too and then I got bored of it. Now I just do it about once every few months.

I hate when people are addicted to smoking cigarettes and I hate when people have a dependency on weed or when people smoke it daily. It just irritates me. It would irritate me if my boyfriend did it all the time. More for the fact that I'm worried for his health on the cigarette end and more for the fact that I wouldn't want a burn out for a lover/whatever on the weed end.

As for people who find it stupid, just like my belief in most other things: if its not bothering you then stfu.

Remember second hand smoke is bad. If you dislike it then don't be around it.

I don't smoke but I understand why if others would smoke maybe because it could be something to get him or her stress free like if something is troubling him or her and he or she don't know what to do or they just like it. Also i would care if my lover resorts to smoking because it kills u slowly, bad for health,could set an example to influence others to smoke( i guess), and smoking kills you. I would want to find a lover with the same thoughts as I do on smoking

I smoke, but I'm not a "smoker" . I'm not addicted to them, but I smoke cigs to stay awake when I'm really tired. I do enjoy some MJ or smoking hookah every now & then as well.

ya i smoke sometimes i smoke two packs a day. I started when i was in six grade just cuz the older kids in high school were doing it so I wanted to be cool like them so i started smoking and now since its been so many years that its become a habit and a way of life for me. the first thing i do when i wake up is smoke, and right after i eat, every break i take, when i take a shit, right before bed, every time i come out of the car, when im bored, stressed, angry, or concentrating on something. its just a part of my everyday life now. i don't even go two hours without smoking if I'm awake. I will get off of a bus just to smoke. i have sneaked a drag on the plane. if I'm at work and i run out of cigarettes i will leave the job just to buy cigs and thats without permission. sometimes i wake up in the middle of the night and go smoke. even in the theaters i will go out for a smoke if the movie is long but sometimes i can't even last the hour an a half

It's a bad habit for me because I've smoked consistently for 2-3 years and quit more often than not. But sometimes I get super urges to go for a smoke after a BIG meal or when I'm really stressed out during school ... Disgusting I know

After my dad got cancer lung cancer i decided to stay away from smoking, not that i ever wanted to before that.
The lung cancer he got tore my family apart, half my brothers had to go into child care and my other brothers i had to look after alone for half of a year. I see why people do it, i just realize that the labels would make it clear that smoking WILL kill you one day....
Luckily my dad got the cancer removed and it didn't return because the doctors caught it very early on. Shamefully most people are not this lucky though.

This is the reason i could never have a lover who smokes, mainly because i don't want to live knowing it will kill her one day and secondly i find it disgusting probably because of the other reason. Heck if i caught one of my kids smoking (whenever the lil' me's are running around trying to make me loose my hair as fast as they can) If i found them smoking they would be in a world of trouble, think Killua from hunter x hunter mixed with Palm...

I get why people do it though and thats the worst part i have to sit here trying to make my dad quit and helping him, essentially smoking is addictive and dangerous to your health, when it catches up to you, it's just a fight against death himself. I guess i am being opinionated here but honestly i've never met a good thing come of smoking and i truly believe the world would be better without it.

Only thing I smoke is cannabis... Been smokin' it for 8 years now and I'm still in top physical condition .-. Cigarettes are a taboo to me, so none of that cancerstick stuffs.

Honestly, if my girl smoked, it would be a plus, just as long as she didn't let it negatively affect her.

i use to be an average smoker ... but, i have gone years without smoking too ... i just don't like the smell of it during or the stale smell afterwards ... like in clothes, hair, etc.

and if we were talking about toking well ... thats a whole other issue!

nope, and I'm like never around in secondhand smoke either (no one smokes in family/friends). So whenever I'm near by someone who smokes, I feel like I'm suffocating lol.

My opinion, idk why people waste money on something that may shorten their life.

and I do care if my lover smokes, I'd try to stop him as much as possible.

I'm the same, although i just get massive headaches when I'm around someone who is smoking.

Same with my girlfriend, i wouldn't want them to smoke because i can't stand being around them if they do.

I used to smoke cigarettes, but I dropped that habit cold turkey over a year ago. I don't do any tobacco product. I started when I was going through a real bad time in my life. I wanted to end it, but wasn't willing to pull the trigger, so to speak, so I started smoking to calm my nerves and kill myself slowly. After a while, though, I wasn't interested in smoking, so I tried to quit, but fell back into using tobacco because somebody I was working with kept getting on my nerves, and in my line of profession, you can get arrested for walking off. Plus, we were living in a cramped space together, which made matters worse. My ex girlfriend was irritating me as well throughout the entire time I was gone, and there was no other way (and $10 a carton was definitely not a bad deal for a smoker) to cope with the stress. I then moved to where I am now, realized how much it was affecting my paycheck and my body, so I decided to quit. Struggled for the first week, but after that, I've been smoke free ever since. As for weed, I'm allergic to it.

I smoked for five years, then totally quit. It wasn't worth it. While it didn't do much bad to my health since it was only five years and I only used to smoke somewhere around 8-12 cigarettes a day (on average), it was still stupid to subject my body to that crap and subject my lungs to that smoke.

I know there are many people on these forums that are younger than me, so to any young people reading this; if you are considering starting smoking, just don't do it. Very bad for your health, and you throw away lots of money just to do something bad for your health!

Another thing to note, after I quit smoking and my tastes buds recovered, I could taste food better than when I was smoking. Smoking makes your taste buds be not as keen. So ever since I quit smoking in 2010, I've been able to enjoy blander foods and simpler foods more than I was for about five years. It's nice to be able to enjoy foods more easily and not feel the need to heavily season foods just to enjoy them.
