Tried it when I was 16 once and drunk, the next morning my chest felt like someone had taken a cheese grater to it.

No. I eat way more candy than I should, but at least don't risk setting my furniture on fire if I drop it in the sofa. :tongue:

Nearly a year since I quit.  Last time I made it 2 years, then was back smoking for 5 or so.  I'm hoping it sticks this time, but I could really go for a smoke right now.

Finally, some smokers! This was looking like a "Do you smoke? NO" thread for a bit.

I don't smoke... now.

I smoked for 7 years and stopped smoking about 9 years ago. I was never really addicted, so I just stopped one day and didn't look back. I smoked mostly for fashion -- 3 or 4 a day.

Actually, we used to joke that cigarette packs had "smoking is addictive" and "smoking harms your baby" on them, but the very first pack you bought just said "smoking is cool".

I used to smoke Peter Stuyvesants and Lucky Strikes.

Is vaping any healthier than smoking? A friend of mine says you can get vape with no chemical additives in it - essentially just vapour. I guess you wouldn't get a buzz, but at least the physical motions of smoking would still be there.

Well based on my completely uneducated opinion, I would say that vaping isn't as bad as smoking, because you won't get tar on your lungs. That being said, breathing in anything that doesn't belong in your lungs can't be a good thing.

I did smoke, and i liked it but i quit few years ago when my mother got ill and i knew i had to encourage her to quit, so i quit with her.

I will say, every smoker should go to visit pulmonology hospital and see people affected heavily by smoking directly. Ain't preety. I've seen enough of it. Companies dont give a SH#T about people (they even CONCEALED the fact that smoking is hazardous for health) and are extreme hypocrytes who care only about money - when e-cigs got on market Philip Morris was a critic of it, how bad it is, how it sucks etc. but eventually they created their own series of e-cigs becase they smelled money from it.

If youre not smoking - NEVER start.
If you are smoking - QUIT IT. I know its hard as hell, but possible. Trust me.

Happy to report that it's been about 1 year 4 months now, and I'm still not back to smoking.  Not a single drag.

I'd like to, I really enjoy smoking, but I won't.  My health and all...

I can't say I never smoked, but almost never.  I've probably had 10-15 cigarettes in my life.  But it was a lot of work trying to get hooked, not to mention expensive, so in the end I just couldn't be bothered to make the effort. (roll)

That's an important side to share: it takes time and dedication to get into the habit or smoking.

On and off for 18 years now. I quit for three years at one point but then I got drunk and started again. It's strange for me as sometimes I can't stand the smell while others I'm just absolutely hell bent for a ciggy..

It's funny.  Most people that used to smoke don't like to be around the smell because it reminds them and tempts them.  For me, I love the smell and want people to breathe it right at me.  I made a decision to quit, but I still love it and secondhand smoke is the closest I'll get.

And yes, definitely want one when I'm drinking, but so far I've been good about resisting the temptation.
