    When people look at me,

    they often say they can't imagine me smoking. Which is weird because, why does it matter what you look like? But yeah. I do smoke. I know it's bad for your health and all that but I like it. It makes me feel better sometimes. I have to say, it was my brothers that got me into...

    I started at the age of 15,

    everything just became too much and i just needed a way to relax and calm down. i'd always see these people smoking and looking so relaxed and chilled. Once i was really upset and stressed out, life is just so hard, so i nicked one of my dads cigs and hid in the bathroom. I lit...

    My Experiences

    i lit my first cigarette at 14. like most teenagers, i gave in to peer pressure so i could fit in, plus i got a thrill out of doing something i wasn't supposed to be doing. growing up in a very strict Catholic family made my decision to start smoking even harder, till i saw my...

    I have been smoking since I was 12 years old.

    I had tried my grand fathers pipe a few times when I was younger but the experience left me with a big headache. I have given up a few times but I ended up spending a lot more money on chocolate in a day than when I was smoking. I have come to realise that I do enjoy smoking, it...

    I'm in college and I've been smoking

    for about 4 years. Half pack of Camel Menthol Silvers a day. I've tried to quit about 5 times and can't do it. I guess I like it, but I'd like to quit again, maybe after this semester.

    I've tried to quit smoking a few times

    and always became depressed. The sadness is one of the hardest obstacles to overcome when quitting. I start smoking again and at least I have more energy, at least emotional energy, and am all right again. I think the boredom of not smoking is almost worse than the longing for...

    Smoking was an escape

    for me, because in 2012 my parents fought a lot and constantly threatened for divorce. I was also very depressed in 2012 which also brought me to smoking. I never did it to be cool. I did it to help. I started smoking when I was 12, and my New Year Resolution for 2014 is...

    I smoke. When I am stressed it appears to be a need. I wish I didn't, I started at 14, il be honest it was peer pressure. It slowly became a coping mechanism with life. I aim to quit for my health. I'm determined one day il be able to post 'I do not smoke'
