Why do you smoke?

Just curious what got you started and why you choose to continue.

Nonsomkers, please don't use this as an excuse to attack smoking and those who choose to do so.

  • I started smoking at 13 because it was cool and grown up. I quit when I was 20 because it was stupid and immature, expensive, unhealthy and uncool to smell that bad all the time.

  • Smoking helps to relieve my anxiety but ultimately I smoke because I enjoy it.

  • I started smoking at sixteen when I was at parties and as I grew older, it went from a social thing to an everyday thing. I quit when I was pregnant and then the addiction found me again...lol.

    I like it and it helps with the stress and calms me down.

  • I started at about 13/14. I smoked throughout until 25. Then I quit when TTC. Then I started smoking ONLY when I drank and now almost 4 years later I still only smoke when I drink, which is maybe 2-3 times a year.

  • Congrats jenree! I smoked years ago, but hated the way people smelled at work after they smoked. So I stopped smoking at work, then I moved and didn't smoke in my house. Then I got pregnant and quit completely the moment I saw the positive sign. Now, I only smoke if I drink, but otherwise the idea of a cigarette nauseates me.

  • I started smoking when I was about 12 for a number of reasons.. it was cool, it helped eliminate some of the stress in my life at that point, etc.

    I quite for about a year when I was 16 and on the schools cross country team (running miles a day and smoking don't go well together, lol). Then when the session was over, I picked it back up..
    quit again when I was pregnant with DD, and the first day out of the hospital I picked one up because i was just so stressed out from the nurses at the hospital (long story). I tried to quit earlier this year.. was doing well, until I had to deal with going to court over issues with the ownership of my car (long story short, I bought a stolen car from a dealership, unknown to me at the time). Come winter I will again try to quit..
