    I don't smoke, but flirted with it decades ago. I am surprised it's still popular. It's not addicting, I used a pipe for some six months then dropped it, never had any cravings.

    Instead my habit is tea which I picked up in Japan, I drink upwards of 8-10 cups or more though I quit by noon. There's a comfort in a cuppa, the ritual and such, but I can stop drinking if I need (though it makes me dull and useless). I swear I am smarter by drinking tea (meaning it makes me smarter), and it has documented health and mental benefits so that is a good reason to drink it too. I used to drink coffee but while tea really does wake you up while calming you down, coffee just wakes you up times 10 (or me at least).

    I'm pretty sure this will just make you want to smoke every time someone punches you in the nuts.

    I smoked in college as an easy way to leave parties for a 20 minutes. I haven't smoked in years.

    I have a ton of cigars and pipe tobacco that I never plan on smoking. I only time smoked when occassionally, on lunch break for an hour, and it seems that the effects of tobacco can be calming when feeling unhinged. Since the possibly one time a month, if even that.

    My parents were smokers. My brother and sister went on to be smokers. When I was 12 or 13 I tried a cigarette out of curiosity, got a headache halfway through, and never so much as thought of smoking ever again.

    I've smoked cigarettes in my younger days strictly in social situations pretty much so I could say id tried it, yet never had any desire to do so on my own beyond that point. I honestly find it gross nowadays.
