Internet people are so judgmental about alcohol. :/ It's the reverse peer-pressure effect - like how my nerdy friends rail on me for liking football because it doesn't fit in with the nerd stereotype.

It can be amusing to be around people who have been drinking, though. That's the only upside to being in my family- getting to laugh at them at parties when they're drunk and do stupid stuff. Is that mean?

But yeah, I don't see the appeal in it, either. T:

I suppose it's a good thing that I didn't get into smoking/drinking at a young age, then?

You know I would agree with you, but you're a very dull person so go away :p

Yes, it really is. Especially the former, no offence to people who do it.

Smoking, yeah. Drinking isn't as addictive, so I'm not sure it really matters when you started. :P

But then there are some people that can smoke without getting addicted, like my boyfriend. Idk how he does it.

Keyword was boyfriend Pedro. :c

Just teasing. I never understand those people that can fight the nicotine though.

Dipu, I was thinking the same thing! X)

Edit:
Woah, just posted accidentally before I finished typing the post.

Pedro, I've heard of people using electronic cigarettes to quit. Have you tried that?

I need to know how though. It's a very rare gift ;;
Like 1 out of every 7 billion people. I think I just found him too.

I used to smoke a bit when I was like 15 and then I stopped because of Parkour and martial arts. I needed my cardio to be in good shape. Wasn't hard for me to quit actually. I just stopped smoking just like that

I've been smoking for 5 years though, sadly it's not that easy for me :/

I should know the answer to this, considering almost everyone I know smokes them, but I'm fairly certain they do have trace amounts of nicotine in them. Probably not as much as the real deal, though. And they come in flavors. =D

Yeah idk how he does it either. He'll get stressed and have one cigarette and then not smoke for months because he just doesn't feel like it. Then he'll smoke a few times a week for a couple months, then quit again because it's winter and he doesn't wanna be outside anymore.

I know a couple of people who do, as well. I'm pretty sure they have different amounts of nicotine and some not at all. That's what I remember him telling me, at least. My memory is terrible, so I can't be completely sure haha.

I'm drawing at the same time as being on PC. I can't tell if it's a fakemon or just a zombie-like cat. T:

Is it the nicotine that makes you addicted, Pedro? If so, you should take the nicotine gum.

I tried those and they taste literally like crap. ;;
Like, they taste worse than cigarette :/

Yeah it is. I don't like how they taste, but they make me feel really relaxed and when I don't smoke for a couple days I get tense and dying for a cigarette. I actually managed to stop for 10 days once but then I practically snapped at people every time someone said something I didn't agree with u_u

I don't know, but they make people grumpy. My friend tried them once and he was a dick for weeks.
Then he started smoking again too >_>

Weed's actually healthier than ciggaretes, so I wouldn't be surprised if Nick was being serious.

Smoking (anything) just never appealed to me. My dad smokes like a pack a day and he always has horrible smoker's cough and all that (high blood pressure, etc,) and it makes me concerned but he has been smoking ever since he was 15 (he's over 50 now) and isn't gonna stop anytime too. Could be a reason why I don't like it and don't ever want to try it.

My mom has a problem with quitting smoking and weight - she can only work on one at a time. If she tries to quit she balloons up because she needs something to do with her hands and eating distracts her, and if she tries to lose weight she needs smoking because it's so stressful.

My dad smokes too. He's 51 right now and has been smoking since he was 19. He smokes 1.5 packs a day but he doesn't cough much because he's like a heavy worker xD
