I'm cheering because my son would say this to the girls he was friends with all the time.

Started about age 13. In the 50's then, it was the accepted thing to do. There where no non-smoking areas, anywhere. You could smoke any place you wanted to. A carton was about $2.50, 25 cents a pack. Everyone in my family smoked. We all ultimately quit. I quit 41 years ago, age 28, thank God.

I started when I was 13 because my older sister smoked and since she was 16 and I thought she was the most awesome person in the whole world so of course I had to be exactly like her!

I quit 10 years ago, after smoking for 18 years. DH and I wanted to have a baby and there was no way we would even talk about trying until I had quit for at least 6 months.

I don't miss it at all unless I have had way too much wine, then I do! It's my cue to put down the wine glass, when I think "yeah, a smoke would be great right about now!"
When life hands you lemons, ask for tequila and salt!

Another peer pressure victim here. Girls riding in cars, bought a pack and we each smoked one, got sick and never looked back. I was hooked at that first coffin nail. I smoked for 16 years but have not smoked for 28 now. It's quite an addiction.
Keep the Faith!! Peace and Love!!!

I started in 9th grade, because our school had a "smoking courtyard", (it was 1979), and every one hung out there at lunch. I smoked through high school, college and my 20's. My husband had to have throat surgery and he had to quit, so I quit with him, just cold turkey, and that was that. 20 years later, I've smoked here and there, mainly when I've got a drink in my hand... for some reason, when I'm holding on to a cold beer, I just crave a cigarette.

My mom ragged me for years and years about smoking, and told me I'd get lung cancer. She never smoked a day in her life. She died a couple of years ago from lung cancer. I might smoke 15 cigarettes over the course of the year still, but I don't give it a second thought. I'm 48 years old and enjoy my life
