    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...

    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. :/

    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.

    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.

    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...
