    Because it makes me fly away from reality land for those 5minutes. Infact, I'm going to have a bedtime ciggie, cya.

    I certainly did not start to fit in as all my friends smoked throughout secondary school and I only started when I was 19 and at college. I had just recently been dumped and was depressed and wanted to try something new to help cope - smoking was it. Apparantly it's a fairly common scenario to start smoking under a stressful situation, not good as I've always gone back to it in times of need. Haven't smoked for the last month though so I'm not exactly heavily addicted.

    I would say the only time I really enjoy smoking is when I'm drunk. The rest of the time it's more of a habit.

    I started 3 or 4 years ago. I have consistently had 2 or 3 a day since then. Because I'm an absolute monster.

    We basically needed to bring tobacco to have a share of the weed. But we foolishly bought cigarettes (d'oh!), and we didn't have them. So we didn't want to put the cigarettes to waste.

    You may be thinking I was just trying to be cool. Let me guarantee you, I probably was.

    Well I'd been a social [drunk] smoker for a few months (only smoked when I was drinking), and then I had a god awful day with my rents/ school/ work or whatever so came home, stole a fag and that was it, I was hooked :s
    The only reason I haven't quit is because I don't want to get on that road of quitting-starting-quitting-starting, so I'm saving up until I have a good excuse (like getting pregnant) to quit and then giving up for good
    It's a good way to escape though - 5 mins of peace, with only yourself and to think about what's happened since your last and what you have got to do before your next. Me time.

    PS She looks like a mix of Rhianna and Cassie just to let u kno so it was worth it.

    My mum and dad have / had smoked for most of their lives and certainly all of mine (up until last year when my dad quit) so I'd seen them smoking so many times when I was little that I figured it must be 'normal' and that mum and dad wouldn't do it if it was bad for them. :sigh: So, I tried it and unfortunately I liked it, so here we are, five years later and I'm hooked.
