Wynder’s father was a violent anti, so I had to keep them for some time. 19 age range. I think I was 12 or 13, and came in a little cardboard sleeve with four cigarettes, so I really only become a regular smoker at age 19 or even 20.
I think that tobacco control, where they were cheeper. To be honest I loved it immediately, just one more thing here.
By virtue of advertising smoking day after day, i’ve smoked a pack a day for 35 years now. He was president of American Cancer Society in 1949; were busy obediently quitting.
Germany it was the HB-Maennchen! Six bucks vs 13-14 here for a basic Marlboro. That was shortly before my 18th birthday. With roll-ups, which don’t come in packs, there’s no way of doing this.
I suspect most people are the same. So if he got anti-smoking drummed into him by his father, he probably got plenty from the Nazi regime as well. I had absolutely no interest in smoking cigarettes until I saw just one anti-smoking poster too many, even then I waited three years until I was absolutely, positively sure that they were trying to mislead me.
But I had been smoking hash together with my friends for some time. Hopefully the start of a trend!
I handed my brother a smoke just as we got to the front door leaving and that asshole comes around and grabs my brothers arm and starts to grab his smoke and I went balls to the walls on his fat ass. Comments by several people set me wondering when most smokers start regularly smoking. By the time I took it up, all my friends, beaten into submission by decades of propaganda, were busy obediently quitting.
Who counted forty years ago? I started smoking at 12 years old but didn’t inhale for the first six months. Taking it up likely means regularly smoking. At school, aged 16 or so, I was quite often to be found behind the proverbial bike sheds, but in some ways it was less out of any liking for cigarettes, and more out of the rush of breaking school rules.
The account did not specify what sort of public establishment would be subject to the ban. Just one more thing here. Did it while still 11. My smoking was confined to a short time in the evenings, but not deliberately so.
So one day I decided to smoke a cigarette all by itself and I loved it. I simply could not afford it, being at college. A drink, a smoke and a heavy hat. A new peak might emerge in the 15-19 age range.
I had my first at 9. I smoked my first cigarette when I was about eight or nine years old. I did smoke from 12 years onwards but only occasionally and often not at all.
OTOH, they don’t go out like the pop brands. I think I would have posited the age brackets a little differently. So I had to keep them for some time. I had started work at the age of 15 and changed job 1 year later.
They are definitely an exquisite product. This job involved a short train journey and I began to enjoy smoking a cigarette when waiting for the train and on the way there. They were just laying around in my room in Copenhagen, where I studied. My brother his wife my sisters and even their friends all started smoking at 13 or 14.
I have the idea that his father was a doctor. Maybe that’s why im so intent on destroying the enemy. I wonder if they contain a higher dose of nicotine because I was never able to smoke a complete one in one sitting. When did you start smoking regularly?
But a couple of fags per day was enough. Burdon sounded blacker than a black man on that song. Yes, Lana Del Rey smokes! But if cigarettes are offered around in social contexts, even that isn’t an indication of how much has been smoked by me personally.
Wynder’s father was a violent anti-tobacco man and Wynder has had this drummed into him from the moment he was born. Another example of how Brittanica Rules the Sound Waves. Smoking was not important to me.
The antis always seem to claim that people start smoking earlier than this. I had to think a bit about it. I was still smoking dope pretty regularly, so that probably doesn’t count really.
I inhaled right in front of him and did my level best to repress a cough and the rest is history. When did you first smoke a cigarette? There was a lot of hanging about the hospital because she’s my granddaughter and wasn’t going to start out the easy way. In a court case in the early 60s he kept insisting that incidence of laryngeal cancer was paralleling the rise in lung cancer incidence despite statistics showing otherwise.
Nope, I get them from family in Virginia. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll have noticed that I’ve been doing some travelling of late. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email.
And you did specify regular consumption rather than initially trying it out. Nigeria has a comprehensive tobacco law for effective regulation and control of production, manufacturing, sale, labeling, advertising, promotion and sponsorship of tobacco and tobacco products.
When Did You Start Smoking Regularly? But many people seem to have started much earlier. I forgot to say, that the first two packs I bought in Sweden were for for my boyfriend, who lived in Århus.
I had been told when I was in New York this spring that he was the son of a revivalist preacher and had inherited his father’s antipathy to tobacco and alcohol. Sherman’s count as one-half from my experience.
Quit before I turned 50. I think I was 12 or 13- strangely enough, I started smoking marijuana first but used tobacco to roll joints.
I would guess at maybe ten cigs per day. I smoked my first cigarette when I was 25. We were leaving after seeing the principle and got it straightened out. I don’t remember exactly when.
I began to make sure that I ALWAYS had cigarettes. Because of my work situation, in due course, even when I was earning I did not smoke much. Notify me of new posts via email. Tobacco is advertised, by the Zealots, EVERYWHERE.
Nazi Germany in his childhood, and was aged something like 18 when his family moved to the USA. Shermans have always been the Rolls-Royce of cigarettes. It was always halfway down and finish it off later. But it’s a minor quibble.
Both accounts were posted online. I can’t remember how much they cost, but it was only pennies. They don’t contain saltpeter and will go out if you leave them alone. Although my memory is extremely hazy, I think that I can replicate RdM’s experience, more or less.
I did not believe her. In my own case, I’d tried a few puffs of cigarettes when I was a boy, and didn’t much like it. It just happened that way. Later, he was also a supporter of ASH, which by know I think we can safely say it’s a terrorist organization masquerading as health charity.
I try to stretch 30g beyond 3 days, sometimes make 5 after butts, but last couple of days went broke on 15g day it seems, stresses gladly met! I thought if it could be the same with the cigarettes, so I opened the first pack and tried one. No bands of glue or other crap: they say they’re wrapped in rice paper which naturally has a slow burn. If I could change the questions, I think I’d put in year-by-year questions in that range, rather than what you suggest.
I really loved inhaling as a kid. You are commenting using your Twitter account. It wasn’t until I was about ten or eleven that I started smoking on a daily basis.

Post was not sent – check your email addresses! And the fact that smoking is disapproved-of by the very type of people whose approval I would actively seek to avoid because I so despise them, is an added bonus. To be honest I loved it immediately, but I never really took it up for real until I was 35.
Permalink to When Did You Start Smoking Regularly? I think that tobacco control, by virtue of advertising smoking day after day, has actually caused an increase in my smoking. 18 started buying the occasional pack.
