    I once bought a packet of cigarettes when I was about 18.
    I smoked 3 or 4, found the effects of smoking so unpleasant, that I threw the rest away and have never smoked since.

    Strangely, my 23andMe Health Traits state that "if a Smoker, Likely to Smoke More".

    Yep, the first few cigarettes are awful. I'll freely admit that perceived peer pressure made me persist. Everybody smoked, so did I.

    Now about your avatar and smoking ... :-)

    Once in the all greens. We were goddam guerillaz scouting the deep forests against make believe bogey men. I stumbled upon it, so I just had to. I felt like Frodo. No Bilbo.

    No, no! It's the question itself. I grew up with all those smokers in american films and commercials, got sticked to it, but now have to face ( with the usual delay ) overall smokers discrimination.

    I've made it a life mantra to sample the common vices, but the impetus to follow them through simply wasn't there. That includes smoking. I've probably smoked a couple of cigarettes in my entire lifetime (including shisha).

    Smoking is more and more frowned upon here. That's why I have no intention of giving up. I only smoke about 5 cigarettes per day and I try to make sure that when I do smoke, that it's in external doorways and thoroughfares.
