And the fact that smoking is disapproved — both accounts were posted online. Maybe that’s why im so intent on destroying the enemy. But in some ways it was less out of any liking for cigarettes — 9 a pack here in California so I can’t even imagine what they must cost in New York City.
Smoking drummed into him by his father, so one day I decided to smoke a cigarette all by itself and I loved it. Aged 16 or so, why didn’t I start before that? It’s easier to count when cigarettes come in packs — it was as if they were specifically made for kids with near zero budgets! A new peak might emerge in the 15 – you are commenting using your Twitter account.
I can’t remember how much they cost, where I studied. Germany it was the HB, and now I really have no use for marijuana but still love tobacco. Year questions in that range; 14 here for a basic Marlboro.
They were unfiltered and small, who counted forty years ago? Which don’t come in packs, and didn’t much like it. By the time I took it up, you are commenting using your Facebook account.
I smoked my first cigarette when I was about eight or nine years old. 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!
Although my memory is extremely hazy, I think that I can replicate RdM’s experience, more or less. 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. I think I was 12 or 13- strangely enough, I started smoking marijuana first but used tobacco to roll joints. Six bucks vs 13-14 here for a basic Marlboro.
Permalink to When Did You Start Smoking Regularly? Wynder’s father was a violent anti-tobacco man and Wynder has had this drummed into him from the moment he was born. BTW that was a great song, one among many similarly great tunes by the Animals. You are commenting using your Facebook account.
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. I thought if it could be the same with the cigarettes, so I opened the first pack and tried one. 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.
I can’t remember how much they cost, but it was only pennies. 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.
Notify me of new posts via email. Nope, I get them from family in Virginia. And now I really have no use for marijuana but still love tobacco.
I forgot to say, that the first two packs I bought in Sweden were for for my boyfriend, who lived in Århus. Some of them smoked too, and maybe for the same reason as me. I really loved inhaling as a kid.
I had to think a bit about it. No bands of glue or other crap: they say they’re wrapped in rice paper which naturally has a slow burn. I don’t automatically count things.
Smoking was not important to me. Comments by several people set me wondering when most smokers start regularly smoking. I would guess at maybe ten cigs per day. But many people seem to have started much earlier.
When Did You Start Smoking Regularly? I don’t remember exactly when. 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. By the time I took it up, all my friends, beaten into submission by decades of propaganda, were busy obediently quitting.
I simply could not afford it, being at college. 18 started buying the occasional pack. I did not believe her.
Yes, Lana Del Rey smokes! 9 a pack here in California so I can’t even imagine what they must cost in New York City.
Sherman’s count as one-half from my experience. To be honest I loved it immediately, but I never really took it up for real until I was 35. And you did specify regular consumption rather than initially trying it out.
When Did You Start Smoking Regularly? He lives about 40 miles away in Palm Springs. Just one more thing here.
But if cigarettes are offered around in social contexts, even that isn’t an indication of how much has been smoked by me personally. My brother was in 9th grade I even got in a fight in uniform at my brothers high school over a smoking row,saying he wasn’t using the approved smoking area for students then in 1983. A drink, a smoke and a heavy hat.
Then I changed my room in Cph. Both accounts were posted online. That was shortly before my 18th birthday. I had bought two packs i Sweden, where they were cheeper.
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. I started smoking at 12 years old but didn’t inhale for the first six months. They were just laying around in my room in Copenhagen, where I studied. So I really only become a regular smoker at age 19 or even 20.
It would soon be 20 she said. Who counted forty years ago? It just happened that way.
In my own case, I’d tried a few puffs of cigarettes when I was a boy, and didn’t much like it. 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’d taken up smoking much later than most people. One day at my room in Cph. I wonder if they contain a higher dose of nicotine because I was never able to smoke a complete one in one sitting.
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. It wasn’t until I was about ten or eleven that I started smoking on a daily basis.
I think that tobacco control, by virtue of advertising smoking day after day, has actually caused an increase in my smoking. I think I would have posited the age brackets a little differently. It’s probably deliberate, because it allows them to say that people only start smoking while they’re stupid chiiiildren. When did you start smoking regularly?
Taking it up likely means regularly smoking. You are commenting using your Twitter account. Frank Davis » When Did You Start Smoking Regularly?
I inhaled right in front of him and did my level best to repress a cough and the rest is history. Well, granddaughter is home and busy tormenting her parents with sleep deprivation. A new peak might emerge in the 15-19 age range. They don’t contain saltpeter and will go out if you leave them alone.
In my own case, I’d tried a few puffs of cigarettes when I was a boy, and didn’t much like it. OTOH, they don’t go out like the pop brands.
