    My parents told me that they both used to smoke,
    but they said they stopped when they wanted kids.

    I remember from a young age seeing a baccy tin in my dads car and asking him about it,
    and he dismissed it as something he used for work, which I obviously took in.

    More recently I've kinda realised being a clock-fixer doesn't require a baccy tin, that he still has,
    with zigzags in his drawer, does this mean he still smokes? A part of me thinks it's just cannabis as
    I knew he used to a long time ago and recently he got arthritis and has been under lots of stress..?
    Have a look in the tin and see what is in there

    He might still smoke occcasionaly, maybe he doesn't tell you because he's embaraced by it or he doesn't want you to smoke?

    You are likley to have a better idea then anyone, if you just saw a baccy tin then that could be used for anything. Depends how old you are, but you could just sit down and talk about your concerns with him. Even if he is, it may not be the best health wise but it's not the end of the world - don't worry about it!

    I saw zigzags, I forgot to mention that 2/3 days a week he works away and overnights in hotels, so he could just smoke then? I'm gonna go downstairs and have a better look.

    And it's too late for him not wanting me to smoke, I reckon he just does it because of my Mum.

    Lots of reasons, peer pressure, interest, family/freinds smoke and then then people get addicted
    I actually know a person that smokes and they almost freak out if they do not have a smoke, I mean it is scary.
    I d rather breathe in rotting flesh then breathe in second hand smoke

    As the title suggests, as a smoker, ask me anything...
    How often do you smoke and how long have you smoked for?

    Do you have any medical conditions as a result of smoking?

    No, only if no-one else is there.

    I hate smokers!! They make you breathe in their second hand smoke which makes me so angry! I'm glad if you don't do that but 99% do from my experience.

    Would you like to quit or not?

    As I said, normally about 6 a day. Normally I have one about 30 minutes after I wake up, one about mid morning, one after lunch, one mid afternoon and one in the late afternoon and one in the evening. If I go out on an evening I might smoke 2-3 more then usual. So one about every 2 hours. I've smoked for about 4 and a half years.

    Sometimes I get a little out of breath if I'm playing sport but not really other then that.

    Will you stop smoking?

    Do you find that you cant cope if you don't smoke regularly?
