Which is true for you?

a) I have never smoked.
b) I have smoked once or twice in my life.
c) I smoke only a couple of times a year.
d) I smoke at parties
e) I smoke a couple of cigarettes a week
f) I smoke a couple of cigarettes a day
g) I smoke 10-20 cigarettes a day
h) I smoke like a chimney

I tend to hover between e) and d) and most of my friends hover between d) and f)... though I have one or two friends who are definitely g).

I'm wondering if there will be a big difference here between the North Americans and others.

I've never smoked, nor do I see myself picking it up in the future.

I'm a b, but my partner who doesn't work is an h. It's a frequent source of fights that he just burns all my money.

Can we have an "I", for none of the above? :)

Wouldn't an I be more like either an A or B?

I'm an H.

Naw. I'm an "I". I hovered between G and H for 15 years but now I never smoke. It's all or nothing for this lady....

A

I've never smoked (apart from involuntary passive smoking from the fumes created by selfish people around me).

b. As soon as my friends and I turned 18, we'd buy a pack of smokes when we'd go out and smoke them all at Perkins restaurant. One right after another.

That lasted for about 2 months, till our fascination with smoking was quite fulfilled and we decided never to do it again. Thankfully it was just that easy. I know its tough for some.

I'm a 'G'
Although I do roll my own with filters which in my nicotine strained mind equates to 5-10 'straights'.

b. I smoked a few in highschool. to try. and to understand. just bumbed them off other people. However I use to do my homework at a waffle house so I probably inhaled an equivalent of a pack a week in second hand smoke(back when non-smoking sections were a joke at best). It's nice that most of the resturants here now are going non-smokeing. I wish 90% would go valinterily so that the state gov would stay out.

I hope nobody starts wingeing about smokers and smoking in public. Everyone knows smoking is harmless and makes you look way cooler than your non smoker mates.

Its the only reason I smoke ;oP

And besides, if you can't smoke in a restaurant you just eat more, get fat and get heart disease anyway.

Thankfully i am alergic to cigratte smoke - in first year college where all your peers consider it as a brotherhood/macho thing i was sick of refusing the stick everytime someone passes it :) .

Alcohol? - its a whole other story :)

I quit smoking a year or two ago. Now I only smoke at webmasterworld conferences -'strue! It's the only time I'm away from my spouse long enough to stick one in my face and not get busted.

B

I think I almost hurled. Good thing to, because I have a slightly addictive personality. Plus, I have asthma.

I'm a BG (not a Bee Gee, which is something altogether more sinister). I smoked 10-20/day for a number of years, until I met my wife. She refused to date a smoker, so I quit. Her beautiful face literally saved my life.

I'm a survivor but I'm reaching my low
But I'm not ready to die

I'm here for the kiss of life
I'm here for the kiss of life
Just give me the kiss of life

I - I was an H for a looong time. Incredibly foolish to have ever given up A status. All or nothing for me too on many things. (That can have a pretty potent upside though.)

I stopped 18 months ago, and never craved for one anymore. My desk is much cleaner now, too.

I quit 3 years ago. I used to smoke about 22 cigs a day, the Marlboro/Marlboro Lite range.

edit to add:
I quit with [quitnet.com...]
