Hey! [Dec. 8th, 2013|01:16 pm]
the community for those who smoke and LIKE IT


Hey I just found this community a few days ago and read through many of the entries. I have to say, I already love this community! I started smoking when I was 17 and have been smoking for a year or so. I realized, though, that this journal has been pretty dead.

No matter, I have something to share, to whoever might come across this entry. All my smoker friends told me about the stories of their first cigarettes and how they hacked and coughed at the first puff. When I tried mine, I expected myself to too. However, the smoke went down smooth (my first ciggie was a Marlboro Menthol anyway). I didn't cough, not even a little. It was like my body already accepted that this day would come.

For my first cigarette, I didn't inhale. I was a little nervous and couldn't concentrate on listening to my friend's instructions on how to inhale. After finishing the first one, I wasn't proud of myself. I had to do it right. Thus I bummed another immediately off my friend, and then smoked it right this time. This was no coughing. I assumed that my mind and body were ready to accept the smoke without any hesitation (I've been wanting to try smoking for a while then). Anyone with similar experiences?

I smoke cigars mostly, so inhaling isn't normally necessary, but I knew I'd like them because I always liked the smell (despite ppl making fun of it my whole life). I have a cigarette once in a while, which also seems unusual.

maybe just inhaling that first one prepared you for the "real" smoke. inhaling can be nice too though, I know we're all supposed to hate second hand smoke and I don't enjoy catching wads of it in my "smoke free" building, but the occasional whiff outdoors is pleasant to me.

Interesting story. When I started 61/2 years ago, I thought it'd involve more hacking and coughing when I begun, except that surprisingly I got used to smoking pretty quick. I decided then to keep it as an infrequent, non-daily habit(and also considering in my head that cigs are an ever increasing in cost product due to the fact lawmakers love to tax the living f outta it), and have maintained that low rate of smoking to this day.

I think it only took me about a few weeks to get used to what smoking was like, for whatever reason.
