Poll: How much do you smoke?

Posted by   + Show Post

There hasn't been a whole lot of group activity lately, so I thoguht I would try to encourage some with a poll. 

How much do you smoke per day?

  • Less than half a pack a day
  • Half a pack to a pack a day
  • About a pack a day
  • Between 1 and 2 packs a day
  • Around 2 packs a day
  • Between 2 and 3 packs a day
  • Between 3 and 4 packs a day
  • Between 4 and 5 packs a day
  • More than 5 packs a day
  • More than I should
  • More than I want to (I want to cut down)
  • Not as much as I would like to because... (money, being pregnant, etc)

Quoting Karla1948:

Erica, did you have a significant event that boosted your smoking?


No, not really.  I'd been in the neighborhood of 1 1/2 packs a day for many years (more on weekends, little less on weekdays).  Towards the end of last year, my smoking had started to gradually increase, and then took a larger bump up around the holidays.  I made an effort to cut back, not just to my "normal" level of about 1 1/2 packs but a little less than that even, shortly after the start of this year.  I had some degree of success in that regard for a few months.  But, my commitment to smoking a little bit less began to wear off, and smoking more a few days here and there became smoking more on most days, again gradually though.  Since I have actually taken stock of my increased smoking and acknowledged it, I just wanted to update my post here to indicate that.  Whether I will make another attempt to cut back in the near future, or just remain content where I'm at now, or continue increasing gradually, I haven't really given a great deal of thought to at this point.

1/2 pack during the week - 2 packs a day with the 2 mainly on the weekends. I can't smoke on company property so I make up for it on the weekends.
