I used to smoke (big on natural substances than cigarettes). I didn't smoke just to be social or because I was addicted. I used to have really bad anxiety problems and it really helped me calm down and not go into one of my attacks. I would probably smoke around 3-4 times a week, give or take. Definitely cut down on it though. I hardly ever smoke anymore and if I do it would just be a few hits.

As far as smoking cigs, I hate it. I've picked it up for a bit but my lungs would just feel awful afterwards. I don't mind smokers, I'm so used to the smell, but I don't suggest anyone should pick up the habit.

There's a student in my class who has one of those. He started smoking it in class and there was actual smoke but you couldn't smell anything. Not even a scent they could have added like peppermint. It was just nothing. He said they work and you can just keep reusing it at you own will.

I'm not to sure about the electric one you posted though as it says without the smoke. Because smoke still comes out. O.o

It's just water vapor. That "smoke" you see is just like steam. The vapor inhaled is infused with chemicals like nicotine which makes it popular for smokers who want to 'smoke' anywhere. The vapor exhaled is just plain water vapor.

I've tried those but it just didn't feel/taste like the real thing.

I started smoking again... It's only like the odd one every week or so but it got that bad I brought a pack. I used to get the odd one every now and then and eventually brought a pack. The day I brought them I was HIGHLY stressed and smoked two and I haven't touched the pack for like three weeks. But I crave another one. I might just keep them and have one every time I get stressed or something. I won't smoke them for the fun of it because I'll end up starting smoking full time.

I used to smoke cigs, but I haven't for 2 1/2 weeks. I'm on patches, but since I couldn't afford this week I got the electronic cig, my ister is on it too. It does blow out smoke but it's not like an actual cig smoke. Just faintly there and yeah it doesn't have a smell. Just tastes mechanical. if that make sense...

I'm 20 and I've never smoked or even tried it. Of course I've felt curious about what it would be like, but I'm completely sure I will never try it for several reasons: first, singing is my biggest passion and want to keep doing that. Smoking would ruin my voice. Second, if I want to stay in good health, I don't think smoking will help me.

Be very careful, you sound very wise about all it but it's sooo easy to make excuses for having a smoke. I have a friend who started smoking recently, like a couple of months ago. Just like that. She kept making excuses, like "it's only for this period" and blahblah, but she is quite hooked now. I do know because I smoke sometimes myself, it's bad and I hate myself for it but it's also nice. Yep. Especially with wine. *hides*

I smoked the last one from that pack a few days ago. So they lasted a while plus my boyfriend had 5. I smoked 5 in 3-4 months. I have to admit they taste horrible too, but I feel relieved after. I won't be buying another packet for a while.

That is good, it sounds like you have it under control. :) 5 in 3-4 months is like... nothing. Best thing is to not some at all of course, but still.

You guys who smoke get on some medication called Champix. Its brilliant. You take the pills and it stops you from smoking, geniunely does. I did it for a week and i tried a cig and my god it was disgusting to me because of the pills. It tasted nasty and the smell was horrible too. I put it out after two puffs. I havent smoked now for about 4 months. I got mine through my GP though.

I'm a party smoker. And when I'm at a party or event, I really don't mind people smoking around me as I do it myself. But if it's normal every day I can't STAND people smoking under the rain shelter at bus stops etc. (There's a sign saying you can't). Normally I don't mind my friends smoking at Uni either. Sometimes I even join them. Weirdly enough.

One good thing about Sweden though is that you can't smoke inside at public places, like restaurants, bars, clubs etc. I do think it's disgusting when people smoke in their house/car though. Because the nicotine really clings to the walls and the smell NEVER dissapears.

Sammy: I'm happy that you found something that worked well for you! :) I'm not sure though.. I know many people are more addicted to the very "activity" in itself. For me for example, I only smoke when I'm out or with others who smoke, I don't care much for the actually nicotine.

Do you smoke?When did you try?Have you ever tried to stop smoking?.


I always curious on things, when I saw my uncle's smoking I wanted to try it, asked one of my uncle but he said it's not good for girls to smoke. So when I went to school the next day (I was in 4th grade, so I was around 9 years old), i bought a stick of cigarette, the vendor did asked me if I was the one who's going to use it, I said no its for my uncle (I lied).


So i went to the girl's cr with matches, but the thing is idk how to smoke haha. So i lit the matched first then unto the cigarette, I really have no idea how to use it so i put it on my mouth then blew it instead of inhaling. I'm telling you, its the worst thing ever haha, i cough so hard and told myself i would never try it ever.

But when I reached 2nd year (highschool), i tried it again with flavor (black bat vanilla), due to the influence of my friends haha. And my 2nd stick is wayyyy better than the first one. So i started smoking (but my family doesnt know about it), but I didn't get addicted to it and stopped smoking after a few months.

Your first cigarette is always your worst.

I guess I'm addicted. I've "quit" several times in the past... The last time I tried to quit was about 3 years ago. I lasted almost a month but as fate would have it that year I visited the Philippines for a good 2 months. It seemed everyone there smoked and many of my relatives smoked so I guess I fell back into the habit. I don't see myself quitting anytime soon. However I will promise to quit when a particular life event happens that I hope will be soon. And if there's anything anybody should know about me is that I always keep my promises.

Always.
