    Because It Is Disgusting.

    I refuse to smoke.  I have smoked before, and hated it.  I cannot stand how everyone who smokes ALWAYS smells like cigarettes.  When I come home from a smoker's house, my clothes and hair reek of cigarette smoke.  It takes me days to get the scent out of...

    I Just Want To

    I smoke because I want to! I don't smoke to look cool...I'm not even sure who it would look cool to since most guys say a woman who smokes is a turn off! If anything while I'm in public I try to avoid smoking or hide when doing so! I'll only smoke around people who smoke and have...

    When I started smoking the thought

    that smoking would make me look cool never crossed my mind. I started smoking because the smokers I knew seemed to enjoy it. At first I did not understand why they liked it so much. It wasn't bad but not all that great either. Only when I started to inhale did I really start to...

    Just My Story

    I find the whole idea of smoking to look “cool” laughable. Might be that you could look at it as starting smoking to fit into a group that you think is cool, but that’s stretching the string hard even years ago. Most of the people I knew smoked because they were very young...
