that other thread got me thinking, every day I see so many people that smoke, doesn?t bother me if that?s what you want to do but I just curious to why they started, in this day in age everyone knows what can come of long term smoking, and to start takes a conscious choice, so I?m asking, what did you start smoking

Can't rightly say, seemed to just happen. I do have an addictive personality, that can't help things. Quit over a year ago though after close to ten years, was up to two packs a day toward the end. Best thing I've ever done for myself.

I don't smoke tobacco, but I started smoking marijuana/hashish when I spent a summer in Amsterdam. Keep doing it because I like it...

Because when I was 16 and hanging out drinking beers and consuming other substances with friends at a public park at 3am, it was cool.

I assume you're talking about tobacco, in which case I started smoking because all my friends did it and I was already 18 so I figured "why not?"
If you're talking about maryjane I'd list the same reasons but I'm much happier with maryjane than cigarettes ;)

It's a shame that teenagers have enough control to ruin their lives, but because they're teens they lack the foresight to see how it will. Smoking, getting pregnant, etc. all these fall into that category. My brother started when he was 16 and he's 29 now. My cousins came over one summer and he got the idea from them. The last thing on a 16 year old's mind is how something like smoking is going to affect their health 10 years or 20 years down the line, so they just start. Sucks. I'll go ape sh*t if my kids ever think about it.

Once again you are following me to different threads throwing personal attacks for absolutely no reason. I do not understand your anger... grow up.

I know exactly when and why I started..

I started while I was attending Ohio State University in 1990.

I was smoking lot of Mary Jane and I wanted to extend the buzz.. Then I got hooked.. I stopped smoking pot, but still smoking cigs

Do you have a mental disorder or do you actually think this is humorous?

It was a harmless joke, which I think anybody here would have made to anybody else.

Because all my friends were smoking. Peer pressure.
I will stop though when I get married, if that ever happens.

Unlikely (stopping I mean!) - why not start now...?

Some may perceive it that way, but when it's never-ending one tends to sense an on-going pattern occurring...
Powermac, I'll ask you once: just stop. I don't care if you have some kind of grudge against me but there's really no need for your actions.

Not unlikely, I will put down $10 grand that I will stop if I get married. Reason being, now I only have myself to care about and I don't really give a shite. However, if I ever get married I will be responsible for others.

I'm sorry, have we ever conducted business before? I don't seem to recall selling anything to you... Seeing as this is the case, your comment is not only unjustified but uncalled for. You must really get off on this or something. Don't you have anything better to do with your time? Go read a book or something. Might I suggest the Bible?

We'll see how unjustified and how uncalled for my comments are in the coming days...

I've asked you to stop once, I'd prefer not to have to ask again. You can end this at any time...
