4 Ciggy Lovers and X's

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I've been thinkin about peoples smoking the past few days,

I've been smoking since i was 11, not full on but definitely over the past 3 years when i told my mum because i could do it where ever i wanted unlike my friends n not be scared my mum would catch me,

I smoke ten a day, i know a lot of people smoke a lot more than that but I am definitely addicted, yesterday we got our phone bill (phew was big, wasnt me tho <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif">) and I had one cig left, the thought that my mum wouldnt get me any cigs was like all i could think about and really worried me, n was soooooo relieved when she brought me some in with her.

Do you smoke or did u used to smoke?
HOw long have you or were u smokin g for?
How many do you or did you smoke a day?
How do you cope when u haven't got any cigs?
Do you want to quit?
Have you tried?
How was it?
Did u relapse?

etc etc.....lol, think u know the script <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Just wanted to add that when im around other people that smoke it makes me smoke loads more, because if someone else sparks up, its like i need a cig all of a sudden,

    or if im watching something on telly like eastenders n dot cottons puffing away makes me want one too, or the royle family <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/eek.gif"&gt; lol, used to chain smoke nearly all the way through that,

    if im drinking a brew i always want a cig with it, if im drinking alcohol i smoke like 40+ a night when im out <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/eek.gif">, i always want one when ive just eaten and when ive just had sex <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    If the sky that we look upon
    should tumble and fall
    or the mountains should crumble in the sea
    I won't cry, I won't cry,
    No, I won't shed a tear
    Just as long as you stand
    Stand by me

    I hate it, I don't agree with it and I dislike people I care about doing it.

    Having said that, i don't have the energy and resolve to argue with everyone about it and make them give up, so basically if someone is starting to smoke I'll get to them and try and make them see the right side of things, else if they've been smoking for a while i'll just let them kill themselves (and i know that's a fair generalisation, but really, why start to do it?)

    I don't live to work, I work to live and I live at the weekends. I'm the last of the big time drinkers.

    ok

    I smoke 5 or six a day, sometimes 10 if ive got a full day at college cos of the breaks.

    Been smoking on off for a year now, tho ive stopped right now cos of half term and just haven't been able to get any rolling baccy.

    Its quite easy to stop cos im not too addicted but i do roll around in bed at nite biting my tongue.

    I intend to quit when i leave college cos its really just socially at breaks with mates tho i do smoke alone (I like making and smoking rollups cos the art of rolling is something to be perfected and all my spliff friends smoke loads).

    i get nervous in the mornings cos i always arrive early (all the later trains wont get me in on time) and have to hang around for 20mins and smoking gives me something to do. Other wise i get diarea (sp? lol) cos of my diet probs and cos of my nervous disposition.

    anyway i stop over the holidays cos i cant get any baccy (not without trekking down town and its not really worth it) and as long as im occupied im fine.

    but the addiction is bound to grow.

    Since I was born I don't remember being around heavy smokers. That may be the reason I feel like dying around people smoking, I never try to affect their behaviour though.

    We had those smoke questions last year in school, where we were supposed to ask someone that doesn't smoke, did and is a smoker, too bad I never asked anyone.. <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/rolleyes.gif"&gt;

    And those questions that have been put forward are quite interesting =)

    Its great not being pregnant and not having to worry when u spark up a fag <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif">!
    I started when I was about 11/12 but it was purely just to be cool (very sad I no). I soon progressed onto smoking other things lmao but I think thats another topic <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif">.
    Anyway I was smoking 20 a day before I got pregnant and then all of a sudden I had to quit and man it wasnt very easy. I cant lie and say that I didnt touch a fag the whole time I was pregnant coz the truth is I had the occasional fag if I was in the pub drinking my coke (being pregnant is so unfair <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif">)!!But I did stop smoking everyday and I think that a big thing for me if I do say so myself.
    Now Im not pregnant anymore Im gonna really try not to smoke again and I think I can do it, but I no Ill always have a fag when Im out with my mates coz I love em lmao!

    I started smoking 25 years ago & I smoke between 20 & 30 a day.

    I started when I was cycling home from school with my mate & I kicked a cigarette packet & realised there were some in there (Embassy Nº1). My friend & I both had one each, coughed alot, but persevered.

    In those days cigarettes were advertised freely no-one really pushed the fact that they are so adictive & dangerous, or that they make your breath & clothes stink.

    I wasn't really bothered much until I met my first true love, he was a smoker (Marlboro) so I smoked because I was besotted with him.

    I have made few attempts at giving up, even when running a hypnosis practice & helping others give up. You can't stop unles you really want to. I always just wanted to want to, but couldn't be bothered with doing anything about it, I enjoy smoking.

    In 1999 I wanted to send my children to Stagecoach, but it was going to cost over £200 per term. I realised that I spent more on cigarettes & so I managed to get into the thinking that smoking meant that I was depriving my children of a fun and character/confidence building activity.

    One day I just wandered into the chemist & got some patches. The patches worked for the nicotine adiction, but not for the psychological adiction. I put on 4 stone in 4 months & became a monster. I was unreasonable & angry.

    During times of severe stress I have, in the past, developed bald patches, not so much that you can see, but I (and my hairdresser) know that they are there. They usually happen about 6 months after the period of stress. Well, eight months in, I was still a horrid person & fat & by now, depressed. Then I noticed the bald patch.

    I thought "fuck this for a game of monkeys" & started smoking again.

    I still carry the weight, but I will be dieting & increasing the exercise after the Chernobyl kids go back to Belarus.

    I won't try to stop smoking again until my husband is ready to join me, at least then I won't get the jealousy too.

    I had a life once, but I stopped feeding it so one day it just walked away.

    never smoked, never been tempted, never going to smoke. my parents have smoked all my life and either the smell and everything has put me off or what my mum's said has, telling me how awful it is and how she wishes how she never started and hopes i never do (she started coz of peer pressure to look cool).
    ive been offered cigarettes before, practically had them forced upon me on the ferry on the french exchange and numerous other occasions, even when drunk and ive managed to refuse them. its like if someone said "here this is a fire, walk in it"... just cant see the attraction, even when drunk, which is saying something.

    and ive been trying to get my parents to give up for ages, they're limited now to smoking in the kitchen (as a result all the white units have gone yellowy and ucky), they did once until my dad had to deal with a fatal road accident and it was too much for him (nasty and involved children... and hes a policeman btw), so he started again, so my mum ended up starting too. my dad didnt even give up when he was told he'd had a heart attack! but im still convinced they just said that to cover their backs, because of his cholesterol beiing normal and everything and his enzyme count thingy also normal suggesting it was indigestion or something... ahh well ill be quiet now.

    but i hate smoking. its horrible, i hate being around people who smoke, especially if they do it in your face, and i wouldnt go out with someone who smoked unless i feel helplessly in love with them in which case id try and help them give up.
