Tried it when I was 9. Wasn't much fun. Haven't really since apart from a few social cigars. Oh the peer pressure.

By 'tried' - do you mean have your first puff or smoke habitually?

To be honest, I was 8
But I only took a few puffs out of curiosity (I nicked one of my dad's cigarrettes), hated it, and haven't gone near them since. I really really hate smoking, and I'm quite glad I did it because it put me off for life.

pure nicotine dependence
I mean, why do people start in the first place if they know what it can do.

Smoking in front of dying people, you're so considerate.
It wasn't a general hospital

I don't know? When i was young we all knew that 'smoking was bad for your health' but i don't think it was as publicised as it is now.
I wish to god i'd never tried it, though!

Peer pressure, curiousity, (false) rumours like it can help you lose weight.

BTW, I'm really pleased to see so many people saying they've never tried it. You guys rock! Keep up the good work

If we exclude all the asides that are peer pressure, the glamorous nature of smoking etc. I guess people smoke because there are no discernible negative effects for a long time.

Yeah i still think a lot of it's peer pressure - there aren't many people that go "Hey, I wonder what it's like to smoke, I'll just pop to the shops and get get some cigs to try out."
I want to see a celebrity "quit-smoking-bootcamp-style" programme on TV. I'd love to see Britney Spears and Nadia from BB in there. What could it be called?

I started because I was depressed and messed up and thought I wouldn't live past 16 anyway, so cancer wasn't a concern then. I can't speak for people in general though...

I've never smoked anything before, but I had a dream that I was smoking a cigarette. It had the worst taste and smell. (Yes I do smell things in my dreams.) I thought I would puke.
