7383 Hello_There_____ "Only at parties" "Eh when I'm walking someplace far" "The nicotine boosts my marijuana high" "It makes me look casual when im nervous" "There's still a few left, im not smoking a pack a day" "I haven't been smoking for that long, a few years won't hurt"
2628 mckulty My first job as a kid was in tobacco. Handling it all day causes a buildup of thick black "gum" all over hands and exposed areas. Nobody knew at the time but the gum serves as a transdermal patch, delivering 2 or 3 packs worth of nicotine into my 13 year-old's bloodstream. No surprise then, that most of the people who worked in tobacco also smoked heavily in the off season. Took me 40 years to quit.
3857 amrw224 I actually went up until I was 18 never smoking a cigarette. Then on my 18th birthday I bought a pack. That was that. What's really stupid is I actually got sick from it at first and essentially forced myself to get over that so I could continue smoking. So, yeah. Grade A dingus over here.
1624 Aksi_Gu I was trying to impress a girl. Bought some cigarettes, tried them with her. Nothing happend. Except I ended up with a 20-a-day habit for 13 years, while she never took to it...
3966 ridoy_13 I realized it was a great way to make friends. See someone attractive? "Can I bum a smoke/do you have a lighter?" At a party - bored? Take a smoke break. Want to meet new people? Go outside to where they all hang out. Want to procrastinate? Go outside for "just one cigarette." At my school, the designated cigarette spots always had at least a few people there, who eventually became my friends, so it was always a social chilling spot. And once these people BECOME your friends, well.. you're all doing it, it's hard to get away.
778 Anti_Social_ I worked at a gas station for a few years right after highschool. Curiosity got to me being surrounded by cigarette packs behind the coubter. Plus only the smokers were allowed to go outside for a break every hour. The non-smokers only got a fifteen in the break room twice a shift. Those two things combined had me try one. The feeling was damn good so I got hooked.
128 underthecat Would have adamantly denied it at the time, but I definitely started because I wanted to be cool. Or, more specifically, I didn't want to look uncool when someone offered me a smoke. Then I started working at a restaurant and that just sealed the deal.
641 Splatmaster42G First firefight in Afghanistan had just ended. I'd done well, covered my sector, returned fire, but one guy near me got hit in the armor. Right in the middle of the chest. He was fine, but that put my mortality in perspective in a tearing hurry. I had been in country a couple weeks. Was pretty sure I wasn't getting out. My hands wouldn't stop shaking, so I bummed a cigarette. That cig felt better than sex. Immediate calm, counteracted the adrenalin withdrawel. I was smoking two packs a day when i left 9 months later. Moved to vaping a few years later, but haven't kicked the habit.
1550 harshwordshurtmyskin Everyone in my family smoked grew up thinking it was normal so i started when i was 14 wish i never did.
805 M00NL0VE I had a panic attack in the parking lot of my high school and an older guy offered me one and told me it would help me calm down. It did, and I started smoking them after every panic attack from that point on. I had crippling anxiety and a tendency for addiction, even at that age, so I smoked a lot. I knew I was in trouble when I would start getting anxiety as a result of *not* having one too. I quit 12 days ago, after 15 years.
3089 ResistencePlea For some reason when I read this I thought you meant smoking meat and was getting ready to share and got all excited. EDIT: Holy shit! A lot of you apparently want to hear about how I started smoking meats. It's not really that interesting of a story, but here it is. Pretty much, for Father's Day a couple years ago, I'm thinking 2014 maybe, my mom and I bought my dad a Big Green Egg (One of these bad boys! http://biggreenegg.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/eggs-family-seven-800x420-1.jpg). I suppose when we bought it, it was really a gift to the whole family because we would be getting such delicious meats from now on, but it also turned into a small hobby of mine and a big hobby of my fathers. Anyway, we got him the Egg for Father's day and some guys came out a couple weeks later and set up as it's actually quite large. From there on, my dad and I have made everything from pork shoulder to brisket to turkey and oh my goodness is it the best meat you will ever eat. Every now and then we'll try some new recipes but we're on break due to winter right now. Trying to stretch this out because it's not exactly a long story but yeah, that's how my dad and I started smoking meats. If you can afford a and are willing to put the time into smoking meats, trust me, do it, it's so freaking good!
1535 JoeGrinstead Pot smokers of Reddit "Smoke what"
240 RTGSky Friends smoked. I turned 18. I wanted to flex my rights so I bought my first pack, that’s where I went wrong
86 Tayl_tsundere A cute stock boy at the produce shop I worked at handed me one on New Years Eve while we were working and everyone else was enjoying the event we had to celebrate (I was cashier on staff because I was 17 and he was 20, everyone else was 30+) - I didn’t know if I was supposed to light the filtered side or the non-filtered side... never really hung around with smokers prior... so I took it and put it in my purse and said “thanks!” (I was also trying to avoid the embarrassing coughing by not smoking it) He thought it was weird that I saved it for later but when I got home I decided to walk to the park and smoke it myself to see what it was like. Ended up a pack a day-ish for 4 or so years. Quit October 2016!
83 your_comments_say I was 13, it wasn't illegal. I didn't know any better and likely wouldn't have cared because of buzzes. Planned to stop when the buzzes did. I did not.
183 BeloKure I was offered a cigarette and i said fuck it why not.
459 AmishRhino Saw all these other guys in bootcamp get a break, the rest of us had to keep working Screw that, started smoking, got up to 2.5 packs of Marlboro reds a day till I quit cold turkey 2 years later. Felt a shit ton better and could taste how great (or shitty) food was. Loved smoking, if someday I’m diagnosed with something terminal? I’m starting up again. No substitute for a coffee and a cigarette first thing in the morning. Don’t start kids.
61 cptnslw I was a college student living in NYC. I saw a bunch of kids outside of class doing it all the time. I was suffering from anxiety and depression and thought it would be a good way to self medicate. Walked into a bodega one day and bought a pack. That was that. Do yourself a favor. Don’t start.
