Why start smoking?

So, why did you start smoking?

My mom is 61 and has been smoking since she was 12, she said she started smoking because it was the "cool" thing to do.  She said when her mother caught her and her 7 siblings smoking, she made them each eat a cigarette...My mom said it was so disgusting every one was throwing up and got sick...However everyone of them smoke to this day.

What are the positives of smoking? 

For those of you who say you quit every time you become pregnant, why would you start smoking again if you were able to refrain for 9 months?

I started when I was a teen because I was an idiot who thought it looked tough. I quit in my early twenties.

no positives. i started when i was 16 and i did it to fit in. everyone else was doing it. i quit when i got pregnant but started again because i felt stressed. total bullshit. i have since quit and even tried a cigarette a few months ago just to see if i would still like it (dumg, i know) but it was fucking horrible and i almost threw up. i can say with confidence that i will never smoke again.

I tried clove cigarettes at 18 and loved the taste. After I smoked them for awhile, I started getting sick of the very strong flavor but I still wanted to smoke. So I moved to menthols. There's not really a positive to smoking other than it scratches an itch.

2 moms liked this

I experimented with it at 13-15. Then went to college at 18 and everyone smoked cloves at the parties, so I started doing that. Then me and my bf (now DH) were smoking cloves so regularly, we figured it'd be cheaper to switch to cigs. That was 15 years ago. We are now 10 days smoke-free.

I started bc my friend was smoking. Her and i had just walked in on my then bf hooking up with some girl so I lit up right there like I had been smoking for years lol. I was 17 at the time. I smoked for five years and just recently quit a little over a month ago.

There are no positives other than they tastecreally good after eating or if you're super stressed. It's a dirty habit.

It calms my nerves. The taste. The way it feels blowing the smoke out.
