Topic: Cigarette Smoking?
Posted By: Phonebook Eater
Subject: Cigarette Smoking?
Date Posted: 17 Jul 2011 at 12:23pm
Thought it would be an interesting topic. Do you smoke? Did you ever try smoking? Do you have a cigarette every now and then? If you do smoke, do you like it? or you wish to quit?

or are you perhaps one of those anti-smoking characters, and you think doing it is wrong not only for health reasons, but also for moral ones? Now that they are heavy anti smoking laws , especially in the United States, do you think that they will still be people who smoke years and years from now?

I personally do smoke, and I don't think it should be anything to freak out about, and it is IMO one of the little pleasures that make some moments more enjoyable. But I am trying to quit, since I'm about to move to America, and I'm only 17, thus I can't buy any.

Oh well...I�ll have to admit that I�ve fallen back into my old smoking habit during this last half year (damn it), but there has been 4-5 years before that where I didn�t smoke regularly. Only the occasional pack of cigarettes at a party (damn alcohol is treacherous). I smoked every day from I was 17 until I was around 28-29. It�s usually during stressful periods of my life that I smoke. I suffer from Astma though, so I�m trying hard not to smoke. I�m sure I�ll get the will power to quit soon.

I don't smoke and don't intend on doing it any time soon.

However, I'm not morally opposed to smoking, and I can't stand all of the legislation (especially here in America) that's being enforced. If somebody wants to smoke, that's their choice and they should have the right to do it IMO. Smoking is not for me, but it's not my job (or anyone's job) to trample on people who enjoy it.

I never have, I don't plan on ever doing so.  I don't have a problem with other people smoking around me, it doesn't bother me like it used to, but it's not something I'm interested in doing.

I tried it once when I was a teen. I didn't like it. I didn't give in to peer pressure, because I didn't give a crap about my classmates and what they thought back in school, and I was not afraid to say that I found it a disgusting experience.

I don't smoke now, and I don't intend on starting to smoke ever. I have no problem with other people smoking - that's none of my business.

For 34 years now. Really, I can't believe it's been that long. I started inhaling when I was 12 but actually tried cigarettes when I was 8. Craziness! Oh yeah, I thought I was cool. I have quit three times for six months and did for six weeks about a year ago. For me, I find it harder and crave more as time goes on. Not a good sign.
 
When I started it was known that smoking wasn't good for you but in recent years with all the studies showcasing all the implications on health and economics I'm somewhat baffled why anyone would start. Somewhat, meaning I understand the tempatation, curiosity, pier pressure and other psychological reasonings, justifications, excuses.
 
Phonebook, all I can say is, "QUIT" now as your very young and probably haven't been smoking long. It does get  harder as times goes on.

That's exactly what I'm doing. I have been smoking for a little bit, but not too much, averagely a few a day, so I'm not addicted thank god.

Smoked for 34 years but gave up on New Year's Eve 2008.

Had enough of the people that wouldn't let me have a fag (yes, that's what we call them in England) while enjoying a pint of ale.

I used to frequent the local clubs a fair bit when I was single a few years back but gave that up too, I'd much rather inhale smoke than smell another humans body odour Dead

I'm a happy smoker! Thumbs Up  But only roll ups and cigars. I hate the taste (and the concept) of all the extra chemicals put in 'proper' ciggarettes. If I choose to smoke and enjoy smoking I think I have a right to know EXACTLY what I'm inhaling, so it's the pure, Indian style, expensive stuff for me. I you're going to enjoy a smoke, smoke the good stuff, not the mass marketed crap, that's what I say. Puff away...

I do smoke but I try to smoke less because of the money. Last 2 days I only like 4 cigarettes. I will keep smoking at parties, but this will save up like 5 tot 10 euros per week.

Only had the occasional "social" cigarette, like when drinking (and only rarely) or if I was out with a group/friend who smoked.
Pretty sure I've had a cigg like 5 or 6 times in my whole life.

No need to go into the health factors and price since we know about that, but never did anything for me. Maybe because I was always relaxed? Like I never had the "need" for one or got a good feeling from it. At best a cigg was just....neutral.

Don't have a problem with others smoking, big believer of to each their own. I even let em smoke in my car which is a huge no no for my parents, and brother.

Don't know about other countries but the smoking regulation here in the US has gotten insane, especially in NJ it's pretty much a state wide indoor ban (even bars) and some public places even have banned it! Ridic.

Thumbs Up

Another reason is that I'm just not interested in smelling like crap. There are some brands that I've kind of started to like the smell of, partly because they remind me of the atmosphere on a lot of club gigs (in the days before the strict laws), but most smokers smell hideous when they come back from their break.

I know it's an incredibly tough thing to kick, good friends of mine have occasionally broken down and more or less admitted to me it's just flat out addiction and they often hate it.

I tried one once and didn't like it.  I used to get really nasty headaches when I would go to family parties or sports banquets when I was a kid and I made the connection that it was because of the cigarette smoke, so it was a habit that I never really had any interest in.  I did try smoking a cigarette once when I was bowling with my brother-in-law and fortunately I didn't care for it.  I used to hate going to restaurants and bars and bowling alleys and walking out reaking of smoke.  I am also really glad that smoking has been banned.

If bar owners want to allow it in their bar, they should have the right to do so... I know barkeepers who are not allowed to smoke in THEIR OWN bar for example.

I do believe in a lot of instances the bans are good, I mean smokers talk about their rights but what about people not wanting to breathe smoke? It HAS gone a bit far though in the US with the laws.

Also Scott is right about the smell. My good friend smokes like a chimney and gave me a jacket once to keep, (was moving out) and had to wash that thing like 3 times. The actual fibers were part smoke I thinkLOL
Since I hated clubs I went to bars at Uni and often came home to the displeasure of my roommates, smelling like a giant cigg. I almost never did either, that was just from being there.
The smoke filled bar just has an epic atmosphere though!

Yeah there is a certain rock�n�roll vibe about smoking isn�t there. Mot�rhead gigs haven�t been the same since the ban.
Roc�k�n�roll is sleaze, it�s filth, it�s not caring about your health, drinking two bottles of whiskey and smoking 40 smokes each day. Rock�n�roll is not thinking about tomorrow. So yeah I�m biased about thisWacko

If you don't want to breathe smoke, you just don't go to pubs where people are allowed to smoke. There are pubs where the owners and people who go there want to smoke. Luckily there still are some pubs where you can smoke.

Used to smoke a pack of heavy cigarettes daily from 18 till 30. Been without for 10 years now though I beg the occasional cigarette when I'm amongst my few smoking friends.

I'm very glad it's forbidden in restaurants, but the ban in bars is a bit too much regularization-meddling.
One should be free to choose his poison (well, at least if you don't expect social healthcare to pay for you cancer treatment)

Yes, exactly. To be frank, a lot of people are just being selfish...there ARE other people on Earth that maybe don't want to be around but the laws have gone too far. I'm ok with restaurants and that jazz, but the bans in bars, clubs etc is too far.
Especially outside places! My campus had a smoking ban, as do a few amusement parks I've been to.
If you are outside banning smoking just seems ridiculousConfused

I don't smoke because I don't like wasting money. But I like to do this occasionally, damn relaxing activity I must say. I don't really give a damn about what other people do with their lives so I'm far from criticizing them for smoking, as long as they're doing it outside - the secondary smoke smells like shit.

As a smoker, how much would you say you enjoy it? I mean most smokers I know love it, but almost as many also want to quit constantly (or say they should) and often feel bad about doing it. I've always wondered how much is enjoyment/habit. Or maybe they are the same?

I enjoy smoking if I don�t smoke too much. Smoking too much/too many is a habit more than a pleasure. Smoking few can be a pleasure. The problem with smoking is that it�s only really a pleasure if you are addicted (the nicotine extinquising the burning want in your chest). So to get any pleasure out of it you do have to smoke everyday, or at least often. If too long pass between smokes, they actually taste bad and you get a dizzy feeling instead of a relaxing one.
 
Well that�s my take on it.
 
For me personally there is a health issue involved too because I have astma. I usually don�t have to take medication unless I�m involved in heavy physical actitivy but in the periods where I smoke I have to take medicine everyday. So me stopping is of course a no brainer, but bad periods or episodes in my life often lures me back into the habit. Spine like a worm I guessLOL

I see.
Yeah, some good friends of mine smoke like chimneys and have both expressed how they kind of hate it, but also love it though I questioned if they just need it. They were kinda bums as well, really they owe me a decent bit from all the times I've bought them a pack. Felt bad about that but I've seen em pick up 2 or 3 pieces laying around and try to salvage a cig from it!   :( :(
Hey no shame man, I'd imagine when things are rough it must be easy to fall back on it.
Been tempted but I was afraid it would feel good, then it may be a problem.

I have nothing but negative things to say about them to be honest, I keep that to myself for the most part in a non preaching way however when I had my own car my friends couldn't smoke in it, and whenever anyone is around at my house they can't smoke except in the one designated room.  I don't give them crap for it, but they just have to go outside or wait.

I know I'm a dick for being strict... but it doesn't stop me, I get chest infections so damn easily and my parents chain smoked at me my whole childhood so I'm already pretty far down the cancer/heart disease path as it is, no need to add any fuel to the fire.

I find that most smokers in the UK are used to having to go outside to smoke in buildings and being banned from smoking in Halls Of Residence and Taxis that no one really has a problem with my approach.

Stop only if you feel like it'll make your life better. I'm done with "you'll die sooner if you smoke blah blah". I don't care. I don't really know what shit I already have fucked up in my body so... well, I don't smoke personally for two reasons - it's hella pricey and I don't take it very well. But if it made me feel good, I'd do it.

Smoked fairly heavily for 30 years. I quit so many times. Can't remember who said, "stopping smoking is easy, I've done it loads of times", but he was right.

For the last 18 months I've been using these electronic cigarettes. They don't give you the same kick but they stop the craving. Not had a fag in all that time. So I'm still addicted to nicotine, but I can breathe again and won't give myself cancer (assuming the damage hasn't already been done of course!).

So no I don't mind people smoking. I'd be a hypocrite if I did. A well shitty addiction though.

Hey you lung polluters! I have never been a smoker per se but i have been one of those bums at many a party who smokes once a few drinks have fallen down my gullet. I have always enjoyed smoking one or two when sufficiently liquored up but once i'm sober it disgusts me. Luckily i don't have the addict gene or whatever causes one to become addicted. I also have the privilege of having studied biology for years and am acutely aware of the damage smoking tobacco can cause. Did you know for example that tobacco naturally contains radioiactive isotopes of carbon that it picks up from the soil? That means you are slowly irradiating yourself. It must be stated that cigarette companies are quite aware of this addiction and add gazillions of chemicals to many brands simply to keep you addicted longer. There are chemical free varieties of course but as i stated the tobacco plant inherently contains toxins that cause long lasting damage. I have ceased my use even at the most intoxicated moments because i am regaining my singing voice after being dormant for several years. Using music as my creative outlet has helped me get my lazy ass back on a health kick. I have many friends using the e-cigarettes and even though they can hardly claim to be healthful they are certainly a lesser of the evils and can help eliminate the worst lung damage. I also have the experience of having one grandfather die of emphysema and another from lung cancer both from smoking. Watching their demise is a huge motivating factor in avoiding it all together these days. It is an insidiously horrible practice that doesn't really hit you until later. It is never too late to quit though. Studies have shown that just simply quitting will allow your body to heal itself in miraculous ways.

I just realized the thread said 'Cigarette Smoking', lol. Even so, only once in a blue moon(and to be honest I'm not even sure I'll do it anymore as I've felt way too shi**y at times on nicotine..)
