    No no no, do not smoke. Hate smoking. Anakin doesn't smoke, otherwise I would not have even started anything with him in the first place! lol Yeesh, just don't like it at all.

    Have you ever tried it? As in, did it for a while but then fell out of the habit?

    Or have you just never been attracted to it at all?

    No I never tried it or was attracted to it at all. My dad smoked but never in the house, my mum wouldn't let him. I just always thought it was a filthy habit. After knowing so many people that do smoke and have issues with their health, keeping their teeth clean etc Of course I was never going to try. Why try something that you know is addictive anyway?

    In saying that, I'm not one of those people who thinks smoking should be banned etc. I think people who do smoke and are addicted should be respected, I don't like some of the laws that are enforced in Scotland for example. I think it goes a bit too far. Smoking is an addiction and it does make some people happy. Though it is not for me personally, I would not be one to deny anyone the habit that they walked into and want to continue. A lot of people smoke here in Belgium actually compared to the UK, I was rather shocked actually. Anakin's family, for example, I think almost everyone smokes, just he doesn't cause, like me, he thinks it's a bad habit and a waste of money. In my family, the only one who smoked were my brother and dad, though they did it sporadically, not every day. Though I think both have quit completely now. My brother certainly, though I can never tell with my dad.

    I have tried smoking... Not really very hard lol. I think I have a problem with inhaling cause I can't breath through my nose very well. Anyway I have tried a few cigarettes, even marijuana but both didn't have effect on me so I just didn't see what the big deal was. It could be that it didn't have effect cause I can't inhale very well. Anyway I just wanted to try to see what the big deal was, cause I still thought it was a waste of money and I prefer to be healthy lol.

    I think it's a disgusting habit. But if people want to shorten their lifespan, I won't try to stop them.

    I detest smoking 'cause of the smell.

    'course, I'm only 18, so I'm a wee bit prejudiced ;)

    I don't smoke. My mother, step father, and brother all smoke. After moving away, and not being around smokers for over year, anytime I get near someone who is or near things that came from a person who is I notice the horrible smell right away. I can't believe I used to smell like that.

    >.>

    I think its a pointless habit. Not only is it detrimental to one's health, but it is also very unattractive. I don't understand why anyone would start up with it.

    Some people find it attractive, and apparently it works as a stress relief in some cases. Honestly though, there are better smelling things you could smoke to relieve stress.

    Indeed, or a non-smoker who could pair up with a smoker. If Anakin smoked, that would be it, quit or else lol I think my mum did that with my dad when they first met, he gave it up but after about 10 years he started it on the sly again, like she didn't know lol The stink was most apparent lol

    If someone I knew was going to start smoking, I'd suggest they start smoking Clove-Cigarettes. Their second hand smoke at least smells half-decent.

    I think that within a relationship scenario; smoking is pretty much common ground if both people smoke. It's not even considered in the proceedings of the relationship - the relationship carries on as 'normal'.

    Although, of course, if one person smokes and the other doesn't - it can cause a major tear in the contours of the relationship. Some people live with it - others, like Padmé; wouldn't stand for it.

    I enjoy a cig or 2 when I'm out drinking, but otherwise, no, I'm not a smoker.

    I used to smoke regulary when I was younger, now I fall back on the habit when there is a lot on my mind.
