    Why Risk It? There Are No Benefits Whatsoever!

     I have never felt compelled to try it, though I have been offered. What's the point? Cancer, lung diseases, and any other bad thing you can think of. If you start smoking, then it's very difficult to stop. So why start? I'm sure you could use all that money on other things...

    Me Too...

    Its really useless. Smoking just to make yourself look cool. Many people do this just for that. I for one would only consider smoking if the climate is really really cold. It increases body heat which is very helpful IMO.

    I have never smoked but I have many friends

    and family that do. I've never been able to stand the smell of cigarette smoke so I figured that I better not try smoking them.

    I Have Never Smoked

    I have never smoked anything, however my Dad and Mom smoked and I have a brother who smokes. For some unknown reason I have always attracted women who smoke. I can't seem to lose them. With a smoker, I have found their personal hygene is not that good, when you kiss them it is...

    I Love Smokers

    I have never smoked a cigarette in my life and never will. But unlike most of you I am not an anti-smoker. In fact I think smoking is the sexiest and coolest behavior ever. I am pretty much in awe of smoking and smokers. I was raised by a chain smoking mother. She constantly...

    It's Never Occurred to Me..

    to try smoking. It makes me cough just being around someone else smoking, I can only imagine how horrible it would be if I inhaled that the smoke directly into my lungs.

    The Exception

    Both my parents smoked, both died well before they were able to see their grand daughters. From a very young age I knew that this "social status" was not for me, and with each passing year I found more and more reason why I did not want to even come close to getting on that...

    decided to go out and take a smoke, I decided to join them and have a chat but knowing if I get offered I shouldn't smoke. I was waiting from my ride because I'm 15 and can't drive and I can't walk home because it's too far. My mom told me she was here so I walked out in front...

    Sometimes I Dream That I Have

    Not once, though I have smoked tobacco with weed. I also occasionally dream that I smoke. It's a familiar thing. Sometimes I think it's just because I grew up in a family of smokers and am the only child of the family that didn't take up the habit. Other times it almost seems...

    Cancer Sticks

    for their own choices. It just wasn't something I was interested in even trying, even though my Aquarian spirit tempts me to 'try anything once'. But I didn't have to try it. My father smoked. And I guess I have always been pretty strong-willed about a lot of things. I don...

    Seen No Reason To

    I have never smoked a cigarette in my life. I have smoked a couple of cigars but only because someone had a baby and gave me one. Personally I see no sense in buying a product from a company that doesn't care if I die a horrible, lingering death while they get rich. Screw them...

    Don't Plan to

    I don't plan to either. Too much money, too many health issues and just too much hassle when you want to quit. And that's just all I can think to say about it, they're also not the most colourful things in the world either.
