    So This Is Something I Do Now

    I never understood the stigma around smoking growing up. It didn't seem "cool" or all the other bullcrap that our teachers and counselors told us it wasn't back in grade school. I tried to never judge people for it, but I just thought it was something I'd never do. Well so now...

    Started Smoking At Age 8

    My dad was a heavy smoker, so I was always around cigarettes as a kid. One summer night my dad was smoking even more than usual and I actually got dizzy from the secondhand smoke. It made me want to try a cigarette so bad. After everyone went to bed, I took one of my dad's...

    ....and Have Loved Every Minute Of It :)

    I started 6 years ago now and have no regrets. I love smoking and it's something I wanted to do "deep-down" for years and finally gave into the desire to smoke. Now I'm hooked and not looking back.

    No Regrets.

    At one stage of my life, I was pretty anti-smoking, but like some of those people, I caved in and begun smoking. The desire to start became too much. I've social smoked several times over the last few years, usually with a drink on nights out, but I started properly a few months...

    I started smoking in my teens. I think this is the time that many people will tell you they started smoking. I was about 16 and hanging out with a friend and my sister at the time at the friend's house. She was a close friend who actually lived right across the street from us...

    Curious

    I haven't really started but sometimes lately I wonder what it's like. It seems weird to think about it because I know it's bad for you and I was against it. If you tried it do you like it and why or why not?

    Started At Eleven, Now A Little Older. :-)

    Well, I'm not sure it's a lot to say about my smoking. I started smoking cigarettes now and then when I was 11, probably because I didn't have any other way to flee from the reality. It was, I must say now, quite disgusting, having parents who drank and myself then living in a...

    Started When I Was 12

    I started smoking when I was 12. My first cigarette was a Merit 100 which is what my mom smoked so they were fairly easy to get a hold of. Even though my mom was a smoker she was adamantly opposed to me smoking. I had to be sneaky when smoking because I would be in deep trouble...

    More Regularly

    It was sometime around last year that I first smoked, I think. It was hookah, and I only did it every so often, when my friends suggested it. At the end of the school year I tried a little cigar, which I kind of enjoyed. Then, during the summer, I continued to do hookah more...
