NOT SINCE 2003

Question Of The Week, 7-24-17

Do you smoke?

I started smoking at age 15 and had my last cigarette at age 57, just 15 minutes before my first heart attack.

No, I tried for a week when I was at uni, but never inhaled and hated it, and haven't since.


I started smoking when I was 13 and quit when I was 50. At that time I was smoking 2 packs a day and would wake up just to smoke. Quitting was super hard for me and it took several months before I felt some relief but it is so worth it now. 

I smoked for a year or so in my mid twenties, stopped when I became pregnant and never picked it up again. The hubs stopped at the same time.

Never! Neither has The Golfer 😊 Odd ones out.

Haven't had one in years, miss them every day

I was a three pack a day smoker but quit in 1976 when I spent 3 weeks in a hospital on happy drugs recovering from botched surgery. Seemed like a good time to quit. Everyone in my cancer support group is a former smoker. 

Just a little in college when I was so insecure. Thankfully I grew up!

Ditto what Tabor said.

No, never. I just didn't get the point. I was lookout for a few girls who tried it behind the sports shed at school and saw them get red faced, coughing and vomiting and just didn't see why anyone would voluntarily do this to themselves. I had smoking parents and many adults throughout my childhood were smokers too, so I knew it was something one would get used to, but I still never wished or felt the need to try. and have you seen the cost of smokes these days? Here in Australia?

I have to wonder how anyone can afford to smoke these days.

Was persuaded to try one when I started work but hated it. Nearly choked me. My dad smoked all his life & I hated the smell of it. It's lovely now you can go to public places & not have to move seats or suffer with the smoke.

No, I don't smoke


No, not anymore....I used to, and I enjoyed smoking when I did.

I'm not a "born-again-giver-upperer"...and I don't go around lecturing people about the pitfalls...the do's and don'ts.

I don't like seeing it being taken up by our young folk. Enough information has been given and is given out about the hazards for us to make up our own minds, but people make their own choices. It's not my place to make their choices for them. Rightfully, they can turn around and tell me to mind my own business.

The cost of cigarettes these days is through the roof. I don't know how anyone can afford them. I sure as hell couldn't. 

Tried it as a teenager, but never inhaled so never got hooked. However, I do enjoy the aroma of a good cigar.

I used to. Gave up a few weeks ago. Don't miss them. I have a good laugh at the woman who uses ecigarrettes.


I did for years, but finally quit 14 years ago! So glad it no longer controls me, but now other folks smoking bugs me alot
