    I'm a heavy smoker, 20 a day, give or take.

    I was wondering if a lot of people at Uni smoke or if the majority were zealous people who hated smoking.

    Or yano, somewhere in between?

    Depends on your circle of friends really. There are some people who smoke, some people who aren't bothered and some people who are really self-righteous about it all.

    Probably a fairly normal cross section of society at most universities.

    In my experience though, there is a class element to it. The working classes smoke a fair bit, the lower middle classes abhor it and the upper-middle and above classes smoke as much as the working classes.

    That sounds about right really.

    I've a friend who grabs peoples **** out their mouths and rips them up if she sees them smoking, she's also been known to rip up whole packets. Needless to say when I'm a poor student, if she tries it again I'll rip up her face :p:

    I think you'll meet plenty of smokers. I have to say I'm really not bothered if someone chooses to smoke. I don't. Although, very rarely, when I'm drunk I will because it heightens my mood
