I Dont Smoke Cigarettes

    I do not understand why people continue to

    smoke cigarettes when they know they are harmful to the body. I know they can be addictive due to the nicotine but there are so many ways to deter smoking. If one would just consult with his or her doctor then I'm sure they would receive help. My grandpa used to be a heavy...

    Victim Of Second-hand Smoke All The Time...sick Of It.

    I'M A Reformed Smoker!!

    A reform smoker is as bad as a smoker. There a pain in the arse. They tell you how they gave it up. How hard it was, and so on. No I don't smoke anymore. I used to. I gave it up more than 100 times forever. This was each time. I'll tell you my story if you continue reading. I...

    I used to smoke socially.

    I had my first cigarette when I was 14. Back then I thought it was cool to smoke and I had a bit of a rebellious streak. I knew my mom would hate it if she ever found it. Well she did and was NOT happy to say the least. LOL. That didn't stop me though. I would smoke here...

    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.

    In my opinion the most unattractive thing in a

    woman is smoking! She could be the most perfect woman in the world but as soon as she sparks up a cig for me all that goes out the window!

    If you smoke I don't condemn you.

    That's not my place. I have Ehlers Dan Los syndrome so for me, smoking is a no. It's not something that temps me or might give me momentary anxiety relief. My tissues are fragile. Tobacco placed externally is a great healer in deep wounds in cattle and tough skinned animals...

    Cigarettes are disgusting! They stink! The smell stays on you. What's the point of smoking them when you are aware of the health problems they cause? I personally wouldn't want to do anything that's going to take away from my beauty ;)

    Cigarettes are gross.

    They stink. They make your whole body stink, including your clothes or anything it comes in contact with. Yuck!!!! If I smoke, it's yummy tobacco from a hookah, or whacky tobaccy. ;)

    Part 2 So I put on weight.

    Was it hard, no it was easy. Everything tasted real good. Even the food I hated. I put on 30 kilos in the next 10 years. Better to be a bit fat, than skinny and dead. As a famous actor once said , just before he died of lung cancer" Whatever you do, don't smoke "

    I have asthma. I don't like the smell.

    Don't like how it lingers on ppls clothes, hair, home etc. I have too many respiratory issues to ever consider picking up a cigarette to smoke.

    I started smoking when I was 15.

    The reason why was boys of course. I loved hanging out with the guys, it made me feel important to be the only girl. They all smoked. I developing a crush on the tall boy in our group decided the best way to get his attention was to start smoking. Not the best idea I ever had...

    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.

    and I never plan on doing so. It's bad for your health, stinks up your breath, kills your brain cells, and the lists keeps going on. I'm not interested in created another bad habit for myself I have enough flaws as it is

    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.

    I wonder how people can smoke?

    It smells disgusting and it's so bad for you. It's beyond killing you it's shutting down your body and weakening your immune system it's slowly killing you which is even worse than dying fast.
