    My grandfather died at a young age with an

    oxygen tube hooked up to him. In the fifth grade he made me promise I would never smoke, so I haven't.

    That excuse "life's so short

    so you might as well smoke" do they ever consider that life is so short because they smoke?

    Both my parents and my sister smoke

    and I think it's just disgusting. I can't imagine me, spending money on harmful substances which I just... burn.

    Cigarrettes have always bothered me,

    I never understood why people in my generation who have been raised and taught about all the reason's that cigarettes are bad for you, would start smoking. It is one of my only and most powerful turn offs.

    God, smoking seems AWFUL.

    I have never smoked, but I know people who do smoke, and I can't even imagine what it's like. I read an article from someone who said something like, "I told myself for eight years that I could stop at any time I wanted to before I realized that I was addicted to it." That's...

    My father was a pretty heavy smoker

    since the time he was a teen. A few years ago, he died from lung cancer. It was a slow painful death that i wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. I never had any interest in smoking, but watching a once strong man wither away from cancer, has put me off ever considering starting...

    I had experimented with cigarettes to see

    if I am addicted to it. Yuck I do not like the smell and taste of it. I can taste a lot of chemicals in the cigarettes. Now I had found out I am allergic to smoke from cigarettes. I would started to cough up. I am glad I do not smoke.

    Feeding myself a cigarette isn't on my mind.

    When you actually have to lite a paper with herbs of any kind and suck on the filter to inhale chemicals and feed your lungs with smoke.... NO THANK YOU. I value my life too much to not feed it poison....on purpose.

    And if I'm being honest smoking is a huge turn

    off for me. I don't mind if you smoke as a lot of my friends/family do but I couldn't ever date a smoker. Sorry I know it's harsh but that's the one thing I won't back down on.

    I never have and never will smoke.

    It's hard to even spend time around those who do, as I have very weak lungs and can't breathe when around smoke. Unfortunately, I have a friend who recently decided to pick up this habit. I couldn't go anywhere with her without her having to smoke. It got incredibly annoying. I...

    I started smoking when I was about sixteen

    and I smoked all the way through military service but stopped when I was about twenty six. Since then I smoked a cigar at the birth of each of my first two children but not for my third and haven't smoked since and can't say I'm sorry about that.

    both smoked and for a while around me until as a baby I had to go to the hospital for breathing problems so my mom did her best to avoid smoking around me like at a open window, as if that did anything, or out the car window. I couldn't stand the smell then and still can't I...

    I don't get why people smoke,

    your basically committing suicide the very slow way. Smoking kills you from the inside out.

    Used to. Never going to again.

    It feels nice when it calms you down, especially if you're seriously pissed off. But in the long run...is it worth it?
