Why Start?

I don't see any reason to smoke once, when once just risks potentially twice, and three times, and so on. I'm slightly asthmatic already, and I don't need to give my lungs anything else to deal with. My dad smokes, and the amount of money, and the amount of worry it causes loved ones, simply isn't worth it. I understand people who are already stuck...I don't have anything against them or anything like that...I just don't want to take the risk of even trying it in the first place myself...

Smart thinking. I smoke on occasion, and thankfully, I'm pretty self-disciplined and don't have an addictive personality, so I keep my smoking to a minimum. I only smoke cigars and hookah sometimes. I've smoked cigarettes before, but I think they're nasty. Thankfully, cigars aren't nearly as addictive as cigarettes because you don't inhale all that nicotine. I know I probably never should have started in the first place, but it's a relaxing hobby to have every once in a while.

I agree with you in that personally i think smoking isnt a good idea,ive tried it once i think most people have,but then again its about personal choice im sure people who do smoke would like to smoke without people constantly telling them of the risks involved,im sure they know already.

I would agree. I took 2 drags off one once, said this is kinda dumb and never tried it again. Really you are missing nothing.
