I was 12 years old and was hanging out with my crew at the playground. We called ourselves the GVC+LE and though we were so cool and popular. My mom was a smoker and had a whole drawer filled with cartons, lighters ashtrays, so I took a pack and a few lighters. We each smoked a cigarette, it was so nasty but we though we looked super cool. They were long slim ones and we all thought they made us look like ladies, so stupid!!!
Flash forward 25 years later and I'm still smoking. I quit for 2 years after a 3 week stay in the hospital after my NDE, figured that would be a good time to quit. I can remember thinking about hopping out the window of the ICU and having a smoke, it was difficult but at least I was on good medication at the time.
I was 4 months away from my 3 year anniversary of quoting smoking when a childhood friend passed away. At his funeral reception at the local bar (our friends hangout) and everyone had a shot of tequila for my friend. (I had also quit drinking because it went hand in hand with smoking.) That night I smoked almost a pack of cigarettes and haven't stopped yet.
It's time to quit, I want to but I don't. The worst part of quitting was boredom, smoking gives you something to do. It's also a social thing, "the smokers corner." I'm torn about quitting...

Yep, I too was told by the fag makers that I wouldn't be a real man unless I smoked!
Been smoking for.....too long! 45 years
Rolled my own for most of that time.
I suspect us brits might be in for an ear bashing for the "fag" word LOL
