I don't smoke, I made a try when I was a child and it didn't like me. So, I'm wondering: at what age did you start smoking and why? Because your friends did it or other reasons?

I don't smoke and never tried it. I don't think it may be a thing I need to do.

I started smoking when I was 15 and stopped at 17 1/2, with little problems. I smoked purely to be cool. It was a conversation starter. It created a bond where there was none. It gave me something to do when there was no one around. I'm glad I stopped and never tried it again. Sometimes at clubs, I used to see a lot of good looking women smoking and saw that guys were smoking around them and they were able to instantly spark (no pun intended) a conversation and it made me a little upset.
