I Am a Smoker

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,661 People

    Weed and cigarettes. I love them both.

    I know I need to stop the cigs but I like it too much. It's bad when I have nothing to do and just sit on my porch. I can go through a pack in 12 hours. :/

    I suppose a story for those interested.

    ... I first tried smoking at the age of...9? I think? 9 or 10 but anyway, it was on a dare from my older sister. My mom was a heavy smoker and one day she went in the kitchen and left one burning in the ashtray. My sister proceeded to make fun of me afterwards and threaten to...

    At the Mall

    The day after Thanksgiving, I was sitting outside smoking to try to regain my sanity after working with the crowds. A guy walked up to me and said, "Did you know that the Surgeon General says that smoking can cause lung cancer?"  And he listed some other...

    I have now been a smoker

    for 4 years, on and off for 5 and honestly, its saved my life rather than ruin it. I turned to full time smoking when my grandad passed away and it felt like it gave me the opportunity to just get out the house and de-stress. Without smoking, i'd have fallen into a much darker...

    I've been a smoker since my early 20s

    and I love it. I am sick and tired of the current hysterical lecturing we get from every direction; anti-smokers are as bad as the alcohol prohibition nuts a hundred years ago.

    Smoking Is Good For Me

    I smoke two or three times a day. I can't live without smoke! It is part of my life and who I am. I love to do it and I love the feeling of the smoke in my lungs. It is cool! I feel smoking is better for me than not smoking! At least I am happy.

    I do it as a means of coping.

    I find cigarettes calm me and chill me out. I used to be heavy on anti psychotic medication but now I stay away from people and use coffee and nicotine to control my stress levels. I am not a drug taker and I no longer drink. Its my only vice now and I will probably always...

    Every smoker knows the health risks are real.

    We pretend or block out the thought because we love our cigarettes. Our cigarettes are our friends. They are that little box of control we can pick up at anytime... They help us through our day. I LOVE smoking.. it's my relaxation, my way to get away from my desk, my breakfast...

    I started after high school

    and was in the closet for a year. I came from a family of smokers so it's not too shocking but what is, is that I was VERY anti-smoking growing up. As a result, i kept it hidden when I went away to college. Especially since I was an active, athletic person and didn't want to get...

    I notice sometimes that there can be clashes

    between weed smokers and cigarette smokers. Being both, I know that often the two can coexist peacefully. But sometimes I see older smokers clashing with younger stoners over which type of smoking is more legitimate. It doesn't matter to me; we all enjoy taking things into our...

    A light smoker, about 3-4 a day but a smoker nonetheless. I tried it when I was 11 but really became a daily smoker when I was 14. You see, I'm the kind of person who can never get to sleep because they have 50,000 thoughts buzzing around there head. Early in my freshman year...

    I told my boyfriends brother I was high.

    And I was scared because I just admitted to him that basically lied to him. But he just basically said he understood why I would right after work. And walked off.

    I am a smoker and its the worst habit to break

    I smoke 7 to 8 cigarettes a day and I mostly smoke when im at work but also whenever im just feeling bored but the worse is that menthol feeling it takes away stress and gives you that relaxed feeling I need to find other things to occupy my time and cut down smoking

    and on throughout my life. I first started when I was around 16 or 17 after years of seeing my mother smoke. I didn't really enjoy it then so I stopped and started again when I was in my early 20s. I did it a little longer the second time around but stopped again because I still...

    I hate being a smoker,

    actually. I don't like to set bad examples so I don't do it in front of my daughter nor do I do it in the hous, so even if it is storm and snow is five feet deep, I sneak outside instead. But I should say I enjoy the scent of smoke in my lungs. Guess I will freeze.
