    Default Why did you start smoking?

    So a sort of spin off, I notice a lot of people say they don't understand why someone would take up the habit of smoking and I am curious too. Having tried cigarettes a few times as a teen, I couldn't think of anything that tastes worse, there is no way I could have smoked enough to become addicted because they made me vomit. So why did you start smoking/what made you keep it up? Did you like it from the beginning? I'm not starting this thread to judge smokers, just to gain some insight.

    Rebellious teen I suppose, I started smoking at 13, I jigged school all the time, I generally got up to mischief. When my mum found out she was horrified, it just made me smoke even more. I wonder if she had of said "oh well" would I have even bothered keeping it up. Surprisingly enough I didn't have my first drink until I was 23.

    Because I'm stupid!
    In all honesty, I have no idea. A friend was smoking and I just grabbed one one day and that was that.
