i've been told it's hard to quit because of the addictive drugs in it but why did you even start in the first place?
i don't smoke, but it looks really cool
I only smoke when I'm drunk
You just mean you've not smoked enough to get addicted, it's not like you're IMPERVIOUS TO NICOTINE.
can make yourself look like a twat on the internet without realising it
and the social aspect. in fact the only reason i stopped was because the mates i used to smoke with stayed in glasgow when i moved away
then i cut down dramatically and now i only do it when im with my two really good mates who both smoke (who incidentally haven't smoked in 24 hours as a new years resolution)...like galacticwotsit up there i can take it or leave it...never crave it really
Managed to keep down to when I'm drunk/with mates (which is pretty similar at the moment)
It makes me look cooler right?...right?
i only smoke when i'm working or on a night out though. never at home.
it's a good way of meeting people too. if you're in a smoking area outside a club asking for a light is always a good way to break the ice.
Then I wanted some cigarettes so I buyed some and smoked them.
Then I realised I looked cool so I didn't stop.
..because it enhances my drinking experience, not for any social reason.
you like standing in the cold smokey bit of the pub/club outside for 10 minutes per hour
Please, please tell me they're in jest.
not really, you do look fucking a when smoking, i mean all the bad gys in films do it.
Looks pretty fucking cool to me.
to balance out the stink factor?
The last guy I saw smoked like a chimney. Nastiest thing ever.
And generally makes social situations much more bearable, or escapable.
A fucktard like you could probably do with that kind of social aid.
Spent all my coins on bus fare.
What's your problem?
I've smoked whilst drunk for years and I've never felt the need to do it sober, so you're wrong.
Nah, I like to drink to escape awkward social situations instead.
and at other times it gave me something to do. I'm quite a fidgety person anyway, and sometimes can be a bit socially awlward, so it was quite nice for me to have something to do with my hands, or a reason to get up and move somewhere else in social situations. It does get you talking to people too.
Also, after a while you start to associate things like going down the pub, or admiring a beautiful view with smoking, and you find it very hard to believe they could ever be as satisfying without that cigarette in your hand. Turns out I was wrong about this, but it's quite a powerful feeling.
On shitbags and cuntrags it just makes them look even worse.
And most women too...
and then I never stopped. I don't smoke that much though, unless I'm on a night out then I can start fiending for cigarettes.
is why smoking every now and again is good. It's better if you're not used to it because it has more of an affect on you.
but it definitely gives me a headrush and enhances my drinking experience. As a general rule 2 pints and a couple of fags has more of an affect on my than say 5 pints and no fags.
now i'm addicted. i love it though.
so I could write by brilliant screenplay.
Largely because i've been at home and i don't feel the need to smoke when i'm at home. But as soon as i step out of the front door i smoke like a bastard.
I'm dreading walking to school tomorrow and not being able to have a fag on the way :(
But that's been difficult to enforce when the teachers still smoke in the carpark right at the front of the school.
How the hell would that work?
But for 2 weeks we trekked to the park at break and lunch time. Then realised that we could just carry on smoking on the rec like we used to.
the teachers had a place that only they could reach where they could sneak off to to smoke and the sixth formers were allowed out so they go out to a nearby park or into durham but all the dirty scumbag 14yr olds would huddle around the bag gate at home time desperately dragging on tabs they'd bummed from their older siblings - or those horrible charver 20somethings in cheap hatchbacks to cruise outside schoolgates trying to pick up jail bait
