A Cigarette - What is your style of smoking a cigarette?

Fortunately for me, I have been able to quit smoking now. But while I was a smoker, I used to smoke a cigarette till its butt. I notice that many smokers do not smoke till the butt and throw away the cigarette when they have finished it only half. Then I also know of some smokers who light a cigarette, have 5-6 puffs, and then extinguish and keep it for future use. What is your style? Do you smoke completely or throw away incomplete or keep incomplete one for having at a later time?

dear ranjeetkolarkar, you have left one point in smoking habit. About 10 years before I was working in an organisation where my boss used to take out cigrettee from the packet, keep it for sometime in his hand, inhale the raw cigrettee and again keep it back into cigrettee packet. I never saw him smoking other than this. But he was doing it for a long time. One day I asked him why did he do like that. He told that he was chain smoker and wanted to quit the habit but could not do. But today I do not smoke and inhale the taste through nose. Like this smokers are also there. Thanks. Have a nice day.

hi navtech... i really missed out on one category of smokers. i think it is a good idea to use the method you have mentioned for giving up smoking. Thanks for the response.

Hi ranjeetkolarkar I know what you mean. My husband does that. And he has been a smoker for a long time. It worries me that he does that. I really wish he could stop smoking. But you have to want to quit to really stop smoking.

I smoke and I hate it, I used to smoke till the butt, but lately I have been smoking only part of it, I get half way through and think to myself that this is disgusting and so I throw it out.

I smoked for 16 years. I quit June first this year. Yeah! My man smokes about 3/4 of his cig and then butts out. I would smoke right to the butt. They are so expensive I am not wasting one red cent of it. HEHE I used to think that people who only smoke 5 or 6 puffs were so rich they could afford to throw away their smokes. But I am reall addicted and smoked over a pack a day. So I hoarded mine.

I no longer smoke, either. I quit many years ago. But, yes, I smoked the whole thing all the way to the butt. I enjoyed every puff that I smoked, but I knew it was bad for me so I quit. Even though I enjoyed smoking, I don't miss it a bit now.
