    I learned how to smoke when I was 18 and remember smoking a bit during college (nothing more than a few at a time).

    It was never enough that I got hooked – although, I did love that smoke ‘high’ from the first few puffs.

    I can’t remember when I stopped doing it – I think it was sometime in my mid-college years or shortly thereafter.  I probably smoked a total of 5 packs in my entire smoking life.

    It’s really hard for me to be around smoke.  We have city laws that ban smoking from inside buildings and even a new one last year that you have to be 20 ft. away from buildings.  I appreciate that so much, as a non-smoker.

    I’m not sure WHY I smoked to begin with, because I think I knew that it wasn’t ‘good’ for your body – I think it was more of a socially driven thing.  I definitely didn’t fully understand the affects of 2nd hand smoke… and the research for 3rd hand smoke is daunting as well.

    I did smoke for over 5 years. Quit cold turkey when I got pregnant with my daughter.

    I quit smoking in September but will allow myself the occasional cigarette when we go drinking. It keeps me from smoking regularly and makes it to where it’s not a forbidden fruit. Eventually I think I won’t even want them while drinking.

    I did, up until about 2 years ago. It was a deal-breaker for Darling Husband.

    @Juliepants: Knowing where you moved to I am going to say it’s totally a regional thing! Not to sound classist/judgemental but I think it’s a bit of a working class thing there. Stressful/physical jobs = need for a way to relax = smoking during breaks with everyone! 

    I don’t smoke, have never and don’t ever plan on. I have always had a hard time being around smoke!

    @Juliepants: Hey, NO judgements! I live in Scarborough…I am in no position to judge!

    @Ms. Martian: I agree. I notice the same thing when we visit FI’s family in St Thomas (lots of factory workers there)

    I’m a social smoker – at least that’s what I’m calling myself hehe. I used to smoke heavily and totally cut back last year. Now I only smoke a couple during the day and when I go out with friends, camping and when I have a few drinks.
