    I pretended to smoke in high school for a very short time (seriously, never inhaled because I was afraid after seeing people choking) but that was it. I think it was a total of a pack and a half of cigarettes. But nothing since then and if I DID smoke, my husband would be dead because of his severe asthma. I hate smoking and I hate smoke!

    I have never personally smoked anything, nor ever wanted to.

    However, my father smoked most of his life and I regularly breathed cigarette smoke from birth to 20 years, when I moved out of my parent's home. My father quit smoking shortly after I moved out.

    My clothes smelled of cigarettes, and I had more lung issues (mostly bronchitis), colds, and general sinus trouble when I lived at my parent's home. That cleared up immediately after moving out.

    A nice cigar is a great way to spend an hour.

    Nope. Just the smell of it sends me into asthma attacks.

    I watched my grandfather die of lung cancer from smoking all his teenage and adult life. I would not wish that agony on anyone.

    I have never smoked; I couldn't get past the putrid, foul stench that only the stench of a skunk comes close to matching.

    I agree, except for the lack of asthma and it being my dad instead of grandad I feel the same way.

    I quit smoking years ago, but the cravings have never left. They get especially strong when I am out walking and pass an area where someone was recently smoking. Sometimes it takes everything in me not to run to the store, buy a pack, and light up.

    Weird; I quit over 10 years ago and after about a couple of months have never had the urge to start up again. But I only smoked around 10 ciggies a day.

    In my younger days I probably smoked one pack of cigarettes over the course of a couple of years, usually on Saturday nights when I was out "acting like the world."

    So, no, I don't smoke.

    I smoke a pipe couple of times a week if it is convenient. I don't notice any addictive qualities to tobacco. Boggles my mind when I see people standing in an alley to smoke ciggybutts in the rain. I worked with a guy who quit when a new anti-smoking rule was put in place - he did have his 30 years in.
