    I've never smoked. I'm not against trying

    marijuana someday though. I prefer not to ever try tobacco though.

    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 stopped smoking way back in '97.

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

    But I've been around people

    who smoke my entire life. My parents have been smoking for as long as I can remember - my father sometimes smokes two-three packs a day - and now my best friend smokes too. I don't ever plan to smoke, but being surrounding by so many people, all of them smoking like chimneys, I...

    I don't smoke weed. but i hate

    when people expect me to explain myself. they even take the time to come up with an explanation for me. pro-smokers say I don't smoke because I'm a fascist republican and a goody two shoes. anti-smokers would say it's because i want to abide by the law and i know the "negative...

    I have never smoked a cigarette,

    but I have smoked a few flavored cigars, the hookah and some pot - none addictive, just a few times for the experience of it.

    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.

    My grandpa Joe had smoked ever

    since he was 13. He quit for a while when he got married to my grandma, and when she died, his smoking started again and was worse than ever because of his loneliness and other reasons. Three years ago he was diagnosed with lung cancer, and soon after, the cancer spread to his...

    My mother and father

    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 have grown up in a home with smokers.

    I never knew the rancid smell because I had adjusted to it before I could possibly remember it. It wasn't until I went to college and spent months without coming home that the smell, finally became apparent. I will never get back those years of going to school, reeking of smoke...

    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 consider myself a general non-smoker

    as I've never bought cigarettes but I have tended to smoke socially and I know it's a bad habit. One time someone said "no you don't" and snatched it out of my hand! Usually it's after I've had a few drinks with my friends or someone might offer me one after a long day and I...

    I don't get why people smoke,

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

    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...

    I grew up around smokers.

    Plus I'm highly allergic. Despite knowing how bad my allergies are they kept smoking around me. I hate smokers. I want it to die off already.

    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...

    I never grew up with smokers in the house

    until my b!tch sister moved back in with us with her 15-a-day habit. Now our entire porch smells like a tobacco farm in a brush fire and I thank God I didn't grow up around that.

    0 I never finished 1 ciggerette in my entire

    life. I tried one once for a couple seconds when I was 20 but sensed it was immediately addicting and that despite the cloying taste and seductive experience of being with it, that it was fundamentally repulsive. It was like making love to a liquescent putrid corpse rotting in...
