    Do you smoke, or do you find it disgusting?

    I find it to be a disgusting habit. The smell is horrible and permeates everything. Even if someone smokes and comes indoors, all you can smell is cigarettes. And have you ever kissed a smoker? It's like kissing a penny.

    That being said, I couldn't smoke even if I wanted to. My lungs are already smurfed, so I'd never do that to myself. It makes me a bit bitter towards people who DO choose to smoke when some of us have to fight to breathe okay. And then they later need disability or lung transplants. Winds me up a bit.

    I DID try a cigarette once, though. I was drunk and curious. I didn't intend to start smoking, just wondered what it was like. And I don't feel bad that I can't smoke; it was nasty.

    I only smoke when I drink. I'm trying to quit altogether.

    Especially considering my daughter is at that age when she -knows- smoking is bad and absolutely loathes it. The maybe 2 times she's caught me, she had an absolute meltdown and went apetrout on me.

    Cigarettes are mad expensive here - upwards of $13/pack so it's not a habit that we really ought to be having.

    Ahh, good 'ol social smoking. That's how I first started. I'd still continue to say "I only smoke when I drink", even when I started smoking more. Maybe I started drinking more?! xD Either way, I smoke more now than I ever have in the past.

    I used to loathe smoking a LOT and never had cigarette until I was about 19. Then year nothing, then I somehow smoked 20-21 idk even why and now I am nonsmoker again for about 4 months, not smoking even while drinking.

    The only thing I do occasionaly (read maybe once a month) is hookah with friends but I find that more ritual than anything even though I know it's just as bad as cigarettes.

    I don't smoke. That's really expensive. I seem to be in the minority of people who don't and never have smoked, but don't find it disgusting. Not like chewing tabaccy. Now that's disgusting.

    I don't smoke often. There have been occasions where while I was drunk I was interested in smoking, but those instances (like my drinking) are few and far between.

    I have never smoked, nor do I ever intend to. Nothing about the experience appeals to me. Not the mood alteration, not the smell, not the flavor, nothing.
    My friend Delzethin is currently running a GoFundMe account to pay for some extended medical troubles he's had. He's had chronic issues and lifetime troubles that have really crippled his career opportunities, and he's trying to get enough funding to get back to a stable medical situation. If you like his content, please support his GoFundMe, or even just contribute to his Patreon.

    He can really use a hand with this, and any support you can offer is appreciated.

    This. This. This. THIS! I have asthma and my lungs collapsed when I was little, so smoking is an extremely bad idea for me all around. Doesn't help that I have allergies against it to boot. One time I was stuck in line in front of the Sprint Center and this asshat was smoking in front of me and I didn't have anywhere to smurfing go. I hate public smoking.

    No. I tell people it's for my health, but it's really because I'm cheap as smurf and don't want to spend money on them.

    Never even tried it. It was drummed into me from day 1 that it's a Very Bad Thing and whilst I can't deny some natural curiosity of the unknown, I've just never even been curious enough to do that "one quick swig of one and a splutter" that most non-smokers seem to have done. I think it just crosses that line for me between "it won't do much harm to try it once" and "you wouldn't stick your fingers in an electrical socket no matter how curious you are" in terms of whether I act on it or not.

    I don't have any particularly strong feelings about others smoking, now that it's banned in enclosed places of business such as offices, pubs, etc. Basically you're no longer forced to passive smoke if you want to socialise or work or whatever, so for me it's a thing of the past. I used to hate coming home from a night out reeking of it.
