I only smoke when I'm too drunk to know that it's a bad idea...It probably equates to a dozen or so cigarettes a year.

I can't stand the smell of cigarrets or the smoke, it just makes me cough and hence I have never attempted to smoke one. But, I do like to have the occasional cigar, not the horrible cheap thin ones but the propper ones imported from Cuba that have a really nice taste. I'm not an avid smoker though, mainly because I'm too good at losing lighters Silly

I started smoking when I was twelve, and didn't quit until I was thirty on June 21, 1980 at 4:00 pm in the afternoon PST. At that point I finished a pack and said to myself "I don't need this anymore" and that was the end of it.

I am now 58, and I have not smoked since. But my weapon of choice was L&Ms, 1-1/2 packs a day.

Right now, my house smells reasonably clean, chest Xrays look good, I can run up and down the stairs and if I really get the urge I can go and put thirty miles or so on my bicycle.

I've tried cigarettes maybe three or four times, one draw each time and I didn't notice anything good about it. The smoke tastes disgusting, the small "flash" you get wears off fast, it's highly expensive and it ruins your health.

The bad manners of some smokers also disgust me, smoking in confined spaces being the worst offence. I don't set off stink bombs in elevators or buses, so why should anyone have the right to smoke in them? Can't they wait the few minutes or even seconds until they get off?

I used to smoke those until I stopped smoking 6½ years ago. If I see a pack on a table or on a bar, I can get quite nostalgic  sigh  But happily that feeling of nostalgia only lasts a minute or two.

well...i smoke. Marlboro lights 100s. My fist cigarette was in 7th grade. it was on and off until about 9th grade, not really a bad habit until then. After that i found myself smoking almost a pack a day,which is what i do now.

Im only 19, and i know its horrible. It would be very hard for me to quit. When i need one and dont have one, i feel like im gonna loose my mind. Not to mention the cost. I buy cigarettes about everyday. So, at $4.36 a pack, lets say for about 350 days a year.....you do the math. the thing is, i would like to quit, but i dont think i can just quit cold turkey like some of you have. They are so addictive.

Yeah, in school we get video's on how they discovered smoking wasn't good for you but initially it was doctors ho were promoting it as a 'stress relief'

I am totally against smoking and would never smoke. I am also all for the smoking bans in public places ..... well maybe not in pubs.

I think the last person to quit smoking will be a doctor; maybe a nurse. I see it among my fellow students, in hospitals and so on. If you're in the medical field and decide in favour of smoking, you know what you're in for.

I'm sorry to say this, but young people who take up smoking now are just plain stupid. Try to stop now. You may well yet be young enough to avoid chronic ailments. I smoked thirty a day for about twenty years and I quit cold turkey, 27 March 2000. Except for the very occasional twinge of longing, about twice a year now, I've never looked back.

not everyone can just quit cold turkey. Ive tried it several times and the "occasional twinge of longing" is a persistent and severe fiending for me, its very hard.

Another problem....my mother, aunt, sister, and uncle all smoke and i am around them all the time. Even if i try quitting, being around smokers is enough to set off a bad craving.

I only remember Gauloises Blondes Blue, which I also liked when I was in Germany, but now that you mention the reds, I'm not sure if it was the reds or the yellows that are stronger than the regular blue Gauloises Blondes. Gauloises IMO are stronger than Marlboro Reds, and nowadays I get a little dizzy from Marlboro Reds, which is why I only smoke Marlboro Lights.

One thing you should all stay away from are Marlboro Menthol, or any kind of Menthol flavoured cigarettes. Those are disgusting, although not as much as Delta (a Costa Rican cigarette brand).

I have never smoked, and never will. Something I found quite interesting (and scary) was that when I was in Europe. Being around many more smokers than here in Canada, I actually found myself thinking "hmm, that looks like it could be good, I'd like to try that". Just shows that second hand smoke can be just as bad i suppose. scared
