I'm reading John Grisham's Runaway Jury and there was oine thing in it that i found very interesting, And that was that people start to smoke when they are teenagers.
I want to know if this is really the case
so if you smoke or you have smoke please answer this question:
When did you start to smoke?

No Offence Rikard but you needed a book to tell you people start smoking in their teens? I'm just a little curious as to what got you thinking because I see it all around me and I'm sure most others also do..

I bought my first pack when I was 16 I think. I'd had the occasional smoke before that, but I didn't buy a pack until 16.

13. And I wonder how many smokers really enjoy smoking, and yet realize they are addicted to something with the potential to damage their health? I do.

Smoking is addictive and damages your health! OMG what have I done to myself...LOL

J/K

Everyone knows it's addictive and it damages their health. They may choose to ignore this or not face it but I'll bet dollars to donuts they all know it!

Do you think crack addicts enjoy crack? I sometimes wonder if they know that crack isn't good for them. Hey, this kinda ties into the point you made G'kar. I'm glad you brought this up.

Seriously though, to answer your question: all of them. There isn't a smoker alive that believes that what he is doing is good for his/her respective bodies. And honestly, most of them like it. They might not like the general concept that they smoke, but they do like actually smoking.

I never thought about it as i tend to avoid seeing people smoke (if they smoke i see it but i don't register it, its my own kind of defence system)
