I so wish I had never picked up that first one! Now I am really trying to quit, and haven't been able to yet. I was just wondering how many of us are in the same boat.

(This should probably be a poll, but I don't know how to do that).

I socially smoke sometimes when I drink alcohol.

The weird thing is I find it super smelly and disgusting but when I have a few drinks I want a cigarette. But I rarely drink so I don't think it's a big deal.

My dad smoked. I hated the smell. Not for me. Thankfully he quit! (20 years ago!)

I'm a recreational smoker.  I smoke only when I drink which is almost never

I was a stress smoker from age 16-18. I stopped when I got pregnant and before I started back again I witnessed my grandpa develop cancer and die from it (he was a smoker). I haven't picked up a cigarette since.

Yes I started when I was 18, more so becuase it was "cool".....I smoked on and off....but I can quit cold turkey.  Now i rarely have a cigarette unless I'm drinking socially.
