    im an ex smoker and once i quit i realized how nasty it was IMO so i couldnt date someone that smoked cigarettes, i dont mind the “other” stuff so much as long as its not one of those all day every day type things.

    I couldn’t date anyone that smoked regularly, at a party every month or 2 isn’t a huge problem, but overall I find it gross to see and smell.

    Absolutely. I have an allergy to nicotine and it makes me very, very ill.

    I could not date someone who smoked cigarettes. I see way too many patients who are dying painful, awful, deaths from smoking, and I would have a really hard time accepting that someone I cared for could come to that end by choice.

    Plus it smells bad!

    I have asthma so yup. Dealbreaker. The smell of it even gives me a headache. 🙁

    @mrsbruff2b:  I’ve found that many people will claim smoking is a huge turn off or dealbreaker, but if you meet someone you truly are interested in, it won’t matter. I’m an ex-smoker, every single one of my ex-boyfriends were non-smokers and all at some point said smoking was a turnoff or dealbreaker and then still dated me while I was a smoker. 

    It’s all in how interested you are in the person. To me, being an ex-smoker, the smell of smoke disgusts me, but there are plenty of ways around having to smell it or taste it on someone else. Even when I smoked, you wouldn’t smell it on me unless i literally just finished one, I am super crazy about keeping my breath and self smelling and tasting great.

    Not a dealbreaker but definitely an issue

    @drummerbride:  Exactly.

    Hell, if it was a dealbreaker for me, I would have only had one boyfriend!

    I don’t smoke. I used to smoke occassionally in college when I was drinking or whatever, but I never felt I ‘needed’ to. I don’t really like the smell, but I don’t think someone being a smoker makes them unworthy! My Fiance smokes. I wish he would quit…he has quit twice since we’ve been together, and I bring it up from time to time, but there are worse things he could do.

    @JFay:  Exactly, Health issues are understandable and all, but Fiance always made me smoke outside when I was still a smoker, so it had no effect on his health or well-being.

    Absolutely. When I was single, I wouldn’t have anything to do with smokers so I didn’t have to deal with the ‘ahh but I like you I don’t know what to do!’

    Everything about it is just so off putting and I wouldn’t want to be with someone who does it.

    Maybe I’m the exception, but I just can’t imagine ever getting used to it. I feel like it practically chokes me to be around a smoker after he or she has gone outside to have a smoke. And this is from having had friends who smoke. I just never got used to it.

    Ah shit, I voted for the wrong one. I voted “no & I’m not a smoker” but it should have been “yes conditionally”…I don’t like cigs but I would tolerate them (while encouraging my SO to quit) but I would NOT tolerate pot at all. I hate how lazy that drug makes every single person I’ve ever known who has smoked it regularly.
