    I Know It Is Killing Me

    I have been smoking since I was 14 years old. I would give anything to quit, I just don't have the will power. I hate that I smoke. I hate that I feel helpless to do anything about it. It is a constant battle for me. Maybe one of these, I'll have the strength to lay them down for...

    At work, the smokers congregate & inevitably,

    some guy wants the door open. As if his goal is to make non smokers with asthma choke. Yet my pastor says smoking will not send anyone to Hell. While it may be true for some, for they don't seek to harm any.. It's not true for others.. As if you refuse to breathe it in, some...

    I have never smoked a cigarette in my life

    or even tasted it. And I never will. But i have this weird dream that I keep seeing every now and then. Like just last night, perhaps for the 10th time or so. In the dream I smoke cigarettes. The surroundings and people are different but I am a chain smoker. It's a very vivid...

    my mum started smoking again

    after my brother got arrested as a way to relieve stress. She promised she wouldn't smoke again today, but now she went and bought a new packet. I just hate that she doesn't care about how I feel. She just stopped drinking, which was also to relieve stress and now I think she'll...

    So Disgusting

    I have never smoked, but being around smokers is disgusting.  When a smoker sits next to me on a bus or train, even though they aren't smoking at the time, the smell of the smoke from their clothes and skin just permeates the whole area and I feel like I'm going to puke...

    I can't stand the smell of smoke.

    My dad has been smoking around me since I was a little kid. The part that really gets to me is that he smokes inside the house and I can smell it in my room every time he does it. It really frustrates me, but he won't stop and I can't get away from it. Then the whole...

    When I first moved into my apartment,

    I Hate Smoking, but do it anyhow

    I smoke. I am a secret smoker. Never smoke in public. It smells just bad.  I can feel a negative effect of smoking on my body, but it is so difficult to stop when it is attached to emotions. Every time I need time out, I smoke. If I feel sad, I smoke. If I worry, I smoke. It is...

    I Cannot Stand It

    Growing up, both of my parents smoked. Both my sister and I had allergies and asthma. Our mother told us to lie to the doctor if she asked us if our parents smoked so our mother would not have to get a lecture about how smoke is bad for asthmatics. As if the doctor would not be...

    I tried one cigarette

    when I was 13 out of curiosity. It was possibly the most vile thing I've ever tasted, smelt and felt. How anyone can do that to themselves is beyond me.

    for a woman to smoke. It's disrespectful to their bodies and inconsiderate to others.

    My parents smoke, basically everyone around me smokes, even my crush. I don't judge anyone on why- or because they do it's their choice. I just tell them not to smoke near me because I don't like. I normally wouldn't like to date a guy who smokes, but if me and my crush did...

    I Call It The " Cancer Stick" Or " Death Stick."

    I know this is a fairly obvious way to put it, but whenever I think of cigarette smoke, I always comment by saying "I smell death in the air." I absolutely hate the smell of it! To me, breathing in that crap is like sucking off the end of a exhaust pipe on a car because that's...
