    I'm not really addicted - I don't crave them at all during the day, or have a need for them in normal circumstances. I just like in stressful situations.

    Maybe it's because my parents don't smoke, and it'd be really noticeable if I smoked on my own.

    You smoked in moderation for a short period of time. But smoking in moderation for a long time will lead to addiction. This is followed by a development of tolerance, and an increase in the amount of smoking, and then the smoker is no longer smoking "moderately"

    What you're saying is smoking for a short period of time may not cause addiction. Duration, frequancy, and amount are all important factors.
    I was actually a year long smoker... everyday! During 2007, but quit. Now I just do it moderately.

    But to be honest, people shouldn't go into these stuff. Just go gym if you need a cig and being healthy is always better. :cool:

    You still smoke but think you've quit? Just like most smokers I know. 'I'm only having one because I'm pissed off at the moment'. Addiction.

    How does that work for you :p:

    "I smoked for a year and quit- not I only smoke moderately"

    You realize that you haven't really quit yet, right?

    To tell you the truth I dont smoke a lot!! I smoke on a Saturday or a weekend. Not on a daily routine! You may have never even tried it and are stating your reasons without trying it.

    But, I used to be the same before I did all this!! :p: lol

    Well, I've smoked socially for a few years. Not much at all really, until I spent a year abroad and wound up smoking about 60 a week for over 6 months. I'd smoke in my room by myself and I'd smoke when I went out for a drink. I got a bit fed up with smoking in my room, it smelled and it made me feel a bit sick. So I just sort of stopped and had a few on night out. I went from smoking daily to smoking two or three times a week. Since I've been back in the UK I've not smoked at all, it's been 4 months. I'm not even interested and doubt I'll bother again.

    I smoked a hell of a lot at times in France, but I just sort of figured.. when in rome.

    I smoked for 3 years. Quitting itself wasn't so difficult, but the experience has been somewhat like a recovering alcoholic's, specifically when a person or people around me are smoking I get this feeling that I should be having one with them. While I was quitting this urge was very powerful at times, but now I can resist it. Not great when both your parents are smokers. But hell, on a night out I'll have one occasionally.

    Depends on how much you smoke, when you smoke...etc! You wont be addicted if you've smoked for a few months...its okay to smoke in moderation - like anything else!
    No, its never ever good to smoke. Smoking in moderation may be better than smoking 40 a day but that doesn't make it ok.

    yhh i don't find it addictive. luckily one of the main things is the price of it so i dont bother buying it anymore although i do smoke whenever offered one by friends. i can easily see how someone can get addicted but i just dont really feel the urge to smoke.

    Why should you make it 'ok'? Its someones personal decision if they want to smoke or not!:p:

    There is absolutely no good side to smoking. Bad taste, bad smell, addictive, cancer, heart disease, stained skin etc and the so called relief is actually just a sign of the bodies dependence on smoking - that its needed just to feel normal.

    Just go gym if you need a cig ...
    What?

    Back on topic: I smoke very occasionally & don't feel addicted, but, then again, these sorts of things are rarely a matter of conscious feeling.
