    Ok, I do smoke, but not for the usual reasons. i smoke because I want to become addicted. Strange right? well I am a wannabe writer and one of the best things I think being a writer includes is new experiences. With each one I can write more. Only in this case, the goal is to...

    I grew up in a non-smoking household

    Why I Smoke

    A lot of people have tried to get me to smoke. Friends, family, even my personal trainer at the gym. I have thought about it, tried it for a week (with difficulty), but in the end I tell them I dont want to give up. Why? Because I enjoy it! Yeah sometimes its a boredom thing but...

    I Am A Smoker

    I started smoking officially at the age of 11. At fist it wasn't that often like a cigarette a day. I had issues and no one to talk to so I started up the habit. I have now been smoking for almost 28 yrs. I don't think I'll ever quit as I do enjoy it. I tend to stay relaxed and...

    Yeah

    I have quit smoking for 8-10 times in last 6 years , sometimes for couple of days or week and sometimes for whole month. But I could not succeed so far. I still smoke 12 - 15 cigarettes every day. Is it too much ?

    I started smoking when I was 14, and then quit for 6 1/2 years when I was 21 and had my first child. I started up again about 4 years ago now, and I feel so bad that I did. When I quit the first time, it was like a gift from God; I mean, my last cigarette was when my water...

    Sometimes I Wish I Could Quit.

    I think about cutting down, or quitting all together, quite a bit.  I'm afraid of getting cancer or some other, irreversible, smoking-related illness.  However, that doesn't seem to be enough to make me quit. The fact of the matter is, independent of the addiction...

    Since I Was 17

    I tried my first cigarette a couple of days after I graduated high school. I'd never even taken a puff up to that point--in fact, when I was growing up I was always on my mom to quit smoking. I played volleyball, ran track, and played softball, so smoking was a no-no. But I was...

    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.

    Slowly inhale as the smoke takes over my lungs.

    I feel every part of my body relax. Every stress from the day escapes with every exhale. Calmness surfaces and for a moment nothing will bother me.

    EVER. Cigarettes are just too nasty for me, they smell horrid and the odor of them gets everywhere. In your clothes, in your house, in your own body and skin. But I am a smoker of many other things. I smoke a lot of marijuana. I won't lie, I like my weed. But usually I only...
