I have been a smoker on & off started since i was 15...went from 3-5 then stopped for a while will i was 17..then started again same routine 3-5 then 5-10...after a few years i stopped again...then at 21-23 started again a few here & a few there...then I met my ex-husband it bothered him so I quit for 8 years...cold turkey...and when he cheated on me I started again that night & it was the worst ever since...I could smoke a pack or a pack & a half a day...smoked til my throat felt this burning sensation just didnt care anymore...I used to travel & get like cartons, I would spend hundreds of dollars on not packs of cigarettes...almost 200 dollars for 5 cartons...not bad if you think about how much they would cost me individually...but who knows what they did to my lungs...and I already have an upper respiratory issue as is w/o the smoking!
I recently had to move back in with my parents dad's not well & i am taking care of him...so I had no choice but to give up on the smoking...i think i had maybe 2-3 cigi's in like 8 months...not bad for a 1-2 pack a day smoker! I think if I can do it, anyone can!
good luck to all :)
i personally hate smoking and am proud to say ive never smoked a cigarrette in my life. theres way to much pressure for young people to smoke, especially when all your freinds are doing it, and thats pretty sad. i used to think it might be cool to smoke when i was very young, just because everyone else and all my freinds were doing it, but i also knew all about what smoking does to you early on, because i like to research everything, so i wasnt prepared to risk cancer and screw my health up just to be "cool". your health is one of the most important things you have, if not the most important, and once its gone its not easy to get back. it also effects everything you do. and im not going to ever start smoking
I tried a cigarette only one time secretly and honestly I didn't see how people could get addicted to that but I guess maybe you would have to try more than one. I think smoking is okay maybe occasionally but it seems a lot of people smoke who knows how much a day and I think that isn't good especially knowing all the health risks that come with it. Another thing is if you lived with a smoker or if you did smoke a lot you'd smell like smoke all the time. Even though I don't mind the smell of it I still wouldn't want to smell like a cigarette
I have never had the urge to smoke. At best being around it gives me a headache of insane proportions and at works it makes me extremely ill.
I do get very annoyed at a lot of smokers b/c they don't seem to have any idea how much it bothers some people. How people will stand right next to you and light up or will stand right in front of the store and smoke so you have to walk through the cloud of smoke.
Although I'm do know several considerate smokers who will only smoke out doors, and will stay down wind from me.
I've been a smoker for 10 years. I enjoy it, and it has become a part of my daily routine. I do regret the fact that I ever started though. Its a horrible habit, and it has been very tough for me to quit. It makes everything smell, and I have also noticed my teeth are not as white as they used to be. I've also noticed I get winded a lot quicker than I used to, and I'm starting to develop that nasty smokers cough. I'm in the process of quitting by slowly cutting down. Hopefully I'll never touch one again!
I smoked from the time I was 16, until last year (June 19th)...40+ years....and then found the "E-cigarette"....I get my nicotine, but I don't inhale smoke. It's perfect for me, I was terrified to keep smoking, and didn't know how I'd quit. The Vaping habit is different, too. If I forget it at home, there is no panic....Nicotine on it's own isn't near as addicting as nicotine and whatever else they put into cigarettes....
I agree. I use to be a heavy smoker, always had a cigarette in my hand and a cup of coffee in the other. I changed friends I stopped. Had the urge for about six months, but never went back. That was 40 years ago. Now I can't stand to be around anyone who smokes, I'm not irritated, just don't like the smoke and smell. Especially from their clothes and breath.
i caught a really bad chest infection and had it for a few weeks from my dads excessive smoking(40 a day) and im soo proud to say ive never had a single puff in my life. there have been so many times ive been offered but ive always turned em down cos theyre BARE SCATTY :) i hate it with a passion :P but if ppl wanna smoke then thats theyre choice x
I have no desire to smoke, but I don't care if anyone else does as long as they don't do it near me. If I wanted to smell I wouldn't bother showering.
I know what you mean...hang in there...if you want to quit you will here read my story! :P
omg...that was kinda funny...idk if it was supost to be but it was..everbogy watch it:)
