    Yeah I'm not properly addicted and sometimes I get angry that I smoke. I always smoke for a bit when I'm really social, then stop. And I hate the cough that comes with stopping.

    But then I'll start again when I'm around other smokers. I really want to just stop completely, this must be my fifth attempt. I've only smoked socially for 2.5 years or so lol.

    I'd like to say you'll be fine haha, but everything you've just said, sounds like something I must have naively said 4 years ago when I started. Now I'm on 7 a day. It's just a routine now, I hate it and yeah I get you, I get angry too. The cough is a nightmare, I have no idea why it happens. So do you have cravings at all? You sure you're a bit more than a social smoker?

    I don't have any cravings whatsoever. Only if I'm around other smokers I'll want one. That's what I'm trying to break. Wish my mates would tell me to **** off and not give me one. That way I'd learn that I'm abusing their friendship and I'd take a look in the mirror lol.

    I'm pretty sure I'm a bit more than social smoker. I've probably only smoked sober and away from friends a handful of times. I don't enjoy smoking on my own.

    I also wouldn't like to have to take smoking breaks at work

    Yeah I know what you mean, I think I have a few mates like you who I keep giving cigs to, I'll stop now haha. From what you've said you do sound like a tiny bit more than a social smoker, just be careful. When you start smoking on your own or have the slightest craving, that's when it was game over for me. Addicted.


    Why wouldn't you like to have smoking breaks at work btw?

    When you go out just don't go outside with the smokers.. no matter what! you aren't addicted to the smoking but to the social enjoyment of it so you just need to find other ways to fill that need

    I don't have any sympathy for you. There is no reason for anyone our age to be smoking with everything we have been told about smoking.

    Why?
    When people vape at like a train station, I just think I wouldn't be smoking here anyway so what's the need.

    I turned to Vaping... It saves me money and you should use the code 'STUDENT' on Totally Wicked! They have good e-cigs and the code gives you 20% off so you save loads
