As a teenager I was anti-smoking. I knew it was bad. It smelt and I did not want it around me, i kept telling my mom that she would die from it (more than once per day) Then my dad died and i startet to smoke? funny eh? made new friends, stopped playing football and just smoking cigarettes in the breaks.. what a life.

It is in my opinion a form of self harm, as are drinking too much and eating to much. I think a lot of people don't want to see the relationship between them and the similarity's because they can't perceive something that they personally do as self harm.

i guess it could be viewed as a form of self harm. personally i am hoping that if i take it up, it'll help me stop self mutilating. but i'm still figuring out how to take it up without my parents finding out because i know they'll kick me out.

Nope, I don't think of it as self harm any more than eating greasy food, tanning ,using my cell while pumping gas....

Best Answer

I actually started smoking as another form of self-harm, along with my cutting, and eating problems, and drinking, and pills, and sex. I do all these things knowing they hurt me, but when I do these things I can get out of my own head, and I can stop thinking. So yes, people do use it as self-harm.

Best Answer

It can be. I feel many times that I smoke to hurt myself but part of me wants to quit before it actually works. lol the self harm cutters that talk about taking up smoking instead..I wondered before if I took up self cutting if that would make me stop smoking.
