    Yeah, on about three separate occasions. It wasn't bad, but to be totally honest I wasn't sure if I was even doing it right I just decided that it wasn't worth risking all the unpleasant side effects and health concerns for something that was just a 'not bad' sensation.

    I vaguely remember having one drag on one when I was in a park and about 12. Lol.

    I've tried weed a fair few times, but on't see the attraction of ciggies, unfortunately.

    I assume from your phrasing that you are a smoker, may I ask you as to what the allures behind smoking are? I for one never saw the reasoning behind it.
    So enlighten me! you smoky devil ;D
    I'm not the OP, but I imagine that one of them is that it's pretty sexy to be referred to as a smoky devil

    Yes.
    Thought it was **** and immediately went inside and brushed my teeth about 5 times to try and get rid of the foul taste.

    Yeah, socially at parties. It's mehh. There's nothing special about it. Not good for your breath or complexion, but it can be socially awkward at times not to smoke.

    I tried it once. I didn't really see the appeal and I'm not sure if I was doing it properly tbh.

    Yes. Like many children, I was curious about it. My mum in her wisdom decided to kill the curiousity quickly. She gave me a cigarette and said breath in... I had a coughing fit for about five minutes and never toughed them again

    Nah, although I have had shisha once or twice when very drunk. My parents have successfully put me off smoking cigarettes for life, at the price of near chain-smoking and throwing thousands of pounds down the drain themselves.

    Never have and never will. Spend a fortune on something that is addictive, dirty and enormously unhealthy? No thanks! Besides, my career depends on having a large lung capacity and excellent breathing (as a woodwind teacher), so to start smoking would be detrimental to my life as well as being completely pointless. Also, my husband absolutely detests the smell, and I'm slightly asthmatic. I love the smell of cigarette smoke, curiously enough, but will never try it.

    I can't say I have, the smell is disgusting and that's enough to deter me.

    The detrimental affects to your health aren't that attractive, either! :dry:

    Nah, I passive smoke other thing but I personally wouldn't choose to smoke myself. A waste of money.

    Twice, both when drunk and both of my own accord - no peer pressure for me, just curiosity! Tbh I can't remember much about the actual smoking, seemed ok but nothing special.
