Just curious really, I used to have a 'social' cigarette (I know that's controversial and they aren't social but that's what we called it) but the last of my smoker friends has given up today, so that made me think how many people smoke still or is it dying out like everyone says?
So did you/ do you still smoke?

I gave up over 5 years ago and obviously its one of the best things I did. And no i never touch them now and dont miss it at all,though i did put on loads of weight fter giving up which im still trying to shift.None of my friends smoke.
It's funny as I was out with Lucy (6) the other day and somehow I got talking about cigarettes and I then realised she may not know what I was talking about and as it turns out she had no idea what cigarettes were which I thought was fab as her brothers did when they were her age as there werent the smoking bans in public places then and they remember me smoking which she doesnt.

Well done for giving up.
I thought about that with my 3 yr old, he's never been around a cigarette, not that I would expect him at 3 to know what it was but I was always at my nans at his age an my mum use to say we came home stinking! I'm glad my boys aren't aware of 'fags'

I used to smoke about 15-20 a day. That was 9 years ago.
I gave up cold turkey about 8.5 years ago and since then have only had the occasional drunken cigarette or if away with the girls or something (obv when not pregnant).
I do think I'm a smoker trapped in a non smokers body but I also think that if Ned ever smoked I'd be furious so I am a huge walking contradiction I know.
Will I smoke if drunk / out with mates after this baby comes? I'd say no but it would probably be a lie.

I smoked from 13 to 21.I had my last *** in cancun airport July 2002.
I smoked before having Joshua, gave up when I found out I was pregnant. Started again socially when he was a baby, and gave up again when I found out I was pregnant with Jacob. H also gave up 2 years ago and neither of us have smoked since. A lot of my friends are still smokers though, but I think the smoking ban has had an effect on those who only smoked every now and again, as had the growing cost of cigarettes.

I've never smoked, I hate it. My friend is trying to give up now - total cold turkey since new years day. I think she is my only friend who smokes though - I can't think of any who I regularly socialise with who do.

I smoke. Never in front of Liam & never when he was a baby or I was pregnant. I stop for a few years & go back to it, which is stupid xx
