    My mom always told me

    that she'd kill me if I ever started smoking. My mom smokes, so some people have said that my mom is being hypocritical for saying that, but I don't see it that way. I see it as my mom looking out for me because she knows how bad smoking can be, and how hard it is to quit.

    In grade 8 I thought I was cool

    because I smoked but then my parents found out and my dad forced me to keep smoking cigerettes over and over until I threw up. It was terrible but I never smoked again haha

    I Have Never Smoked

    I hate the smell and never want to be around it. The scent tends to stay on smoker's clothes and is unpleasant to me. I have never and would never date a smoker.

    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...

    People Who Smoke Smell and I'm Tired of People Who Claim I Smoke (and I Certainly Don't Smell)

    People who smoke smell.  I am very much against smoking.  In the twenties, thirties, forties, and fifties it was fashionable to smoke; people considered it to be sophisticated.  The boom is gone.  People who smoke are offensive if they don't consider others...

    My mother was a two pack a day smoker

    until I was almost into my double digits. Her constant need to smoke kept her outside because my dad refused to let her smoke in the house because me and my siblings were still small. So she was never really around at the beginning of my childhood and it started for a rough...

    I am starting to notice

    that an alarming amount of people I know are smoking weed. I remember when I was little that nobody I knew smoked. And we agreed that smoking and breaking the law was bad. Having sex wasn't really a good thing to us either. But now things are extremely different. This is about...

    I always get disappointed

    when I see attractive people smoking. With girls I think, "aw, that's sad, she's way too good looking to ruin it by smoking!" And with guys it's like "damn. My entire daydream has dependent upon the assumption that you didn't smoke, and now you've just ruined it. Hope you didn't...

    Do Not, Will Not, And Will Never!

    Smoking is something I just can't stand. As an outside looking in I see no reason to smoke to begin with. It isn't cool, there are not potential "high" benefits as far as I can see, and the cigarettes themselves are disgusting especially down on a chemical level. I know lots of...

    I don't really get why people smoke,

    but whatever, it's their lives, their owns choices, their own decisions, their own actions. Buuuut what I hurts is when somehow you care about does that. My best friend tends to smoke casually... And I hate it, that's why I've told her about it as given her some advice but like...

    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.

    If you do that is your choice.

    But, don't expect me to hangout with you. I value my lungs. I don't like the smell. I don't want to be around it. I will respect your choice. I will just keep my distance for my own health.

    I don't smoke. I hate it actually.

    I lost two good friends and a family member because of cancer. Smoking is dangerous and I hope all people who smoke stop that one day.

    I am glad that I don't addicted to cigarette.

    I had tried it. I had cough up. So I said to myself "No more trying smoking again."

    I used to smoke for about a year

    and then I got the strength to quit- one of the hardest things I've had to do. What a physical and mental struggle. Cheers to anyone else who has been able to stop this nasty addiction.

    I stopped smoking way back in '97.

    Best thing I ever did (apart from quitting the booze three years later).
