Smoking

Post by famicom69 » Sun Aug 30, 2009 3:29 pm

I smoke a fair few ciggies when I'm out on the town, but never at home or work. Who smokes? Who used to smoke? Who hates smoking? Who loves smoking? Anybody trying to quit? Who smokes what? Tobacco? Cannabis? Human Bones?

For better or for worse, lets talk about smoking.....

I used to smoke cannabis and cigarettes (not at the same time)
I gave up about 5 or 6 years ago, mainly due to the fact I could no longer afford it.

As it happens I'm sort of giving up at the moment - haven't bought a pack for about a week - still smoking Mrs clarance's filthy roll-ups though. Trouble is, I just enjoy it too much.

Never smoked ever - not even tried a puff , even though many of my mates did/do. Smoking really doesnt bother me , and I must admit , I do miss the smoky atmos from pubs ; they feel too 'clean' these days

I miss the smokey atmosphere of pubs, but the reason I do, is because pubs now stink of stale beer instead.

Smoking is awesome, and makes you look cool.

I had to give up though, couldn't afford it. I still enjoy smoking my lungs off while drinking (and it doesn't bother me the next day), but I don't go near pubs. Why would I? As mentioned, they stink of the unwashed masses, and I have to go out in the censoreding rain for a smoke.

Never smoked. Cant stand it. My dad used to smoke, up until he went to the doctor and what he told him made him quit there and then and hasn't smoked since. That was roughly years ago. And to this day, he wont tell us what the doctor told him but it scared the sh!t out of him enough to make quit like that.

I smoked for a while when I broke up with my ex... just gave me something to do.

I'll smoke pot if someone wants to give me some dood! But it's totally not worth paying for. My girlfriend is slightly asthmatic so I tend to avoid it these days anyway. It's way too expensive for something so pointless, and it makes your consoles turn yellow :]

I hate smoking with a passion, can't stand it at all and it pisses me off that Spaniards are completely selfish when it comes to this issue. Unfortunately smoking in public places is still allowed here so whenever I fancy having a pint with my mates or my girl I have to stand the noxious fumes.

Hmm.. I completely agree with smoking in pubs. Smoking bans in general I'm fine with.. certainly in resteraunts and all that. But if you're going to go to a bar to poison yourself with alcohol, you should probably be able to handle being poisened by cigarettes as well. Pubs are for grown ups, or they were once anyway!

Yellow consoles, the main reason I never smoke inside. A friend recently gave me some duty free Marlboro Lights, once they are gone I will stop as I have to keep an eye on the pennies from September onwards. Smoked a fair bit of pot this summer too, I enjoy a bit now and again but it's a slippery slope.
