    I have four relatives

    that have died from smoking to much. I told them to stop and they didn't because they were addicted and it killed them. So I vowed I would never smoke and I never have and I never will.

    When I was younger, I used to see my father

    smoke. I used to watch him blow smoke in the air. I thought it was cool.He used to leave his cigarette packs all over and my mom would go off on him for that and for smoking in the house. One day, I saw he left one on the couch and I took one out and I pretended to smoke. I took...

    I keep a single cigarette on top of the

    refrigerator. Having it there makes it easier not to smoke, as I know that if anything were to happen, at least I have that one cigarette I can still smoke. This cigarette is reserved for a very, very, happy or special occasion, as a celebratory, or as a self rewarding measure...

    When I walk through a parking lot sometimes

    I'll smell cigarette smoke and when I do it feels dirty. It's like as soon as I breathe in the smoke from the cigarette there's no getting it out and it will slowly contaminate my life until I die

    I honestly have been thinking about doing it.

    I just want to smoke the electric ones that don't make you sick. Most likely I won't end up smoking tho.

    I have never smoked a cigarette.

    I don't have the time or money to keep up with such a habit. Life is already short, don't make it shorter with smoking cigarettes. There are better ways of "relieving stress".

    My dad smokes, which

    for some reason, when I was in high school a lot of kids gave me crap about that like asking, "Oh isn't your dad like a chain smoker or something" While I don't think he smokes that much I don't know why it's any of your business what my dad does, and it sure as hell doesn't...

    It gives your house and clothes

    that nice ashtray scent, like an old taxi cab. Had a roommate that smoked like a chimney. One day we cleaned the inside surfaces of the windows with an old but clean white t-shirt. One window soiled the t-shirt so it looked like it had been used on the floor. Grossed my...

    But I almost did, however this was not an

    Let me tell you something now.

    Call me a reform smoker if you want. I'm a fired up about this one. There's no smoke without fire . Well I've got the fire, but not the smoke. Yes I used to be a big smoker. I had my first taste of tobacco at just 8 years old. I've smoked tea leaves from a tin, with a lettuce...

    I remember the date. But not how many days.

    That's good right? "10 days quit" "37 days quit". I'm to the point where it's "Let's see December, January, Feb,....like 4 months?" It's inspiring.

    I have 5 brothers and my father!

    But no one of them smoke, which I'm really happy about it! I did try to smoke when I was 14 but I never like it! Which I'm really grateful.

    People smoke because they're stressed.

    I binge eat. Both can cause chronic illnesses, but food tastes better. :)

    I quit smoking exactly one month ago.

    and for the first 3 weeks, it was like I never smoked. I didnt want it. I didn't gain weight. I didn't get irritated. But this last week I've been LOSING MY MIND. I want nothing more than to smoke so I compensate with food and have gained 10lbs in one week. I'm seriously about...

    I have never tried smoking,

    nor do I want to either. I don't mind the smell of it (when it's fresh) and I don't judge others who do, but I personally won't. I view my body as sacred and as a temple, I think it would be disrespecting my religious beliefs if I did smoke. I don't drink either actually.

    Never have and never will.

    My mother smoked until this past year when her husband had a massive heart attack. I think it's a nasty habit that's very dirty and unhealthy.

    and alcahol ive done in my life, the popular habbit of smoking tobacco never appealed to me. I just dont see why anyone would want to smoke cigarettes. U cant get high or drunk off of them, and they cause harm. Even when i was giving into peer pressure and all that stuff, i...

    but the act of smoking itself is GROSS. It's just weird to inhale smoke intentionally into your lungs.
