SO I smoke occasionally but not because I crave them but because I enjoy them from time to time. Through cigs I have met girls, passed the time while driving, stayed awake while driving and just relaxed before exams. I went to Italy and didnt smoke for a ten days. I smoke about a pack per week. Does this make me an addict

smoking - nasty & addictive
A pack a week hmmm I would say yes but then again you went 10 days not smoking. How did you feel those 10 days. I would say I'm not an addicted. I smoke not even a pack a year. lol My husband is like you and smoke about a pack a week give or take and he says he is addicted. He's even tried to quit a couple of times.

There were a few times that I was drinking that I wasnt drunk but I knew a cig would get me there. But during the day there was too much going on for me to even think about it. Often when I drink a cig gives me the little push that I need to take me to that next levek...even though somtimes its a bad level to be on..but i wouldnt say it was hard at all.

If you don't crave them, then i would say you aren't addicted. But if you feel like you need that pack per week, then I would say that maybe you are. I smoke a cig almost every day, but just one, for the same reasons that you do, but I don't NEED that cig. I guess the NEEDINESS is when your addictd.

can't go by the crave angle tho cuz when I smoke one it is because i am craving it and i don't even smoke a pack a year.

Smoking is really a addiction and not easy to quit all of sudden
