    If you haven't tried it now, then don't!
    It is very addictive and it's a waist of money, a pointless habit, like most habits are!

    Say I smoke 20 cigarettes a day (on average) and I buy tailored cigarettes, not tobacco, it costs me...
    £40 (roughly)

    Tobacco is a lot cheaper though, I could buy 25g of Amber Leaf which costs the same as a deck of 20 cigarettes, and the pouch of 25g would last me a whole week, saving me roughly £30/£35.

    I started smoking at fourteen, and have been addicted ever since. Not worth trying!

    Just wondering what people's views are on this:

    I'm 22 years old and have never in my life tried tobacco in any shape or form, not even a single puff on a cigarette. It is not because of religious beliefs (my mom smokes quite a bit) but I've simply never wanted to get involved with tobacco.

    Two things I'm wondering:

    1) How many others are there out there like me? Or is it so uncommon in today's society that you're unlikely to find anyone above the age of 18 who hasn't smoked?

    2) Though smoking is generally viewed as a bad thing (at least I've gotten that impression), would you still think its weird that someone who is in their early twenties hasn't even tried it?
    I have never smoked either i've been offered both tobacco and weed but always refused personally for me it seems a pointless passtime when I could be spending my money on something that literally goes up in smoke. I've never been tempted either. My mum has never smoked in her life either although my dad and brother do daily. Don't worry about it some people like it others think it's pointless just different opinions though.

    It might seem like most people have smoked at least once in their life but that's not true. The majority of people I know are in the same boat as you.

    I've been offered tobacco countless times, but honestly I see how much those who smoke it take, and how irritable they get when they don't have a smoke - I really wouldn't see the point in doing that to myself, almost every smoker is trying to quit, only an idiot would willingly try it..

    So yeah same boat

    The only decent thing about smoking is that unlit cigarettes smell like raisins... or at least they do to me
