    I tried smoking at 8.

    I started smoking every day at the age of 11 and loved it ever since. I smoked only 5-8 a day till I got 15. At 15 I got permission to smoke at home and in my room. Soon 20-30 cigarettes were my daily average. In the present I smoke 50 unfiltered ryo cigarettes on workdays and 8...

    I grew up in a house full of smokers

    and I suppose chances were pretty good that I would try it one day myself. When I was 11 I lost my mom due to her substance abuse problems and you would have thought that would have pushed me in the other direction but I suppose I went a little off the deep end. I picked up...

    I got to try it once

    when I was four. It was a bribe so that I would cooperate with my mom and her friend making me up like a girl for fun. It was the coolest thing ever! They let me puff on one, then my mom's friend taught me to inhale and they let me smoke until I was nauseated. But is made an...

    My mom and stepdad both smoked.

    One day, my stepdad caught me pretending to smoke while playing and forced me to try a real cigarette. It was horrible. I couldn't stop coughing.

    My Reel To Reel Smoking Files, 1965

    No one in the family ever told me, and as time went by, they forgot. Even when my mom found out I was smoking when I was 17, she never told me either. She probably forgot... Only people in my family will know my voice(of course), but to anyone else, there is a child's voice...

    I remember wanting to smoke

    so badly, even when I was just three or four. My mouth would water just thinking about it. I got to try it once at that age, and they let me smoke until i was sick and I didn't try it again until I was 12. But I wish my parents had let me when I was little.

    I was 9 when I tried smoking my dad's

    cigarettes... He caught me smoking and I was terrified. He asked me why am I smoking and then I answered: "I'm just making the room smell good." (I think tobacco smells good at that time... and I thought that the reason why people smoke is to smell good.) and then he told me...

    Okay, I'm here again to tell the world,

    "I love smoking cigarettes!" So does my entire family including my biggest influence, Mom! I was 13 when I decided it was time to stop fascinating over the love mom and her smoking friends shared for the ritual of lighting up, inhaling, exhaling, and the erotic-bliss-of-pure...

    It's a not a 'regular' habit

    as such, I can easily go without for a two or three days providing my day is going well and I'm not overly stressed. A pack of 20 can easily last 2 or 3 weeks in that instance. But I don't enjoy it that much cause I really cough too much ._. , my friend had taught me smoking...

    I have been smoking 3.

    5 years now. I started because i wanted to see how it was plus I kinda wanted to **** my dad off for leaving. I know probably not the best reasons but it is what it is, I like smoking now and am glad I did even if it was a silly reason.

    I was in the eighth grade

    I first became interested in smoking

    when I was 5 or 6. Didn't actually start smoking until I was 13, though; when I was a kid I didn't think of smoking as something kids could do. When I think about all those years of enjoyment I missed I wish I had started smoking sooner.
