Hi all. I know this community has been pretty quiet lately, but I think you guys are awesome. I'm glad that a community like this even exists. It's just a shame that it's not more active :(

Anyway, I just wanted to share my little story of how I "came out" to my boyfriend. He's a smoker himself, but I didn't pick up smoking until pretty recently. So far, he's the only one who really knows.

I tried vainly to hide it from him. I guess I didn't really expect him to get after me about it, but I figured he might at least tease me.
He didn't.
I asked if it was ok for me to go outside for a minute. He said "sure" and I hid a cigarette and my cheap lighter in one hand.
I stood on his porch, fumbled with the lighter in the dark. I couldn't close the door all the way.
His roommate had his window open. He was watching Family Guy.
I took a drag, and aside from Peter Griffin, it was quiet.

I came back.
"Everything ok?" he said.
"Yeah....Don't yell at me"
He didn't understand until the next morning -- I left my pack next to my purse when I'd pulled out my meds.
We parted ways, him to go to work, me to go home. I blasted the A/C, trying desperately to cool down my car, when I heard a knock on my window.
"Give me one of your cigarettes. I don't have anymore of mine."

Welcome to the world of back and forth bumming of cigarettes. And actually, that's a pretty cool reaction overall.

Haha, thanks :p

He's generally very cool and accepting, but I still sometimes get shy with him even though I should know better by now.

I've been with my husband for over six years now, and I'm still that way sometimes. Although he's VERY anti-smoking.

Thank you.

I think it's been around 2 months. My mother found out and she was pissed. She realized it's beyond her control, but at the same time, she made sure to give me a piece of her mind. Other than that, either no one's noticed, or they just haven't said anything.
One issue I've run into is that the college I'm going to this semester is a 100% tobacco free campus, so that's fun...lol
