Does anybody get put off by a good looking girl/bloke smoking?

I can't stand people smoking whatever they look like. But that's just me. :roll: :P

I thought I better add in the following because the way I said the sentace above sounded like I don't like the actual people. What I meant was that i just don't see any reason for it. Nothing against the people themselves though.

I used to smoke, and my fella always used to say "it's so embarrasing walking down the street when your smoking, you look so un attractive" Lovely of him!
I think the people who USED to smoke are the worst people for moaning at smokers.

Doesn't really bother me to be honest, although it can't be nice kissing someone after they've had a puff?!

I personally find smoking very unattractive. Not in the way a person looks...although, when I think about it, maybe that too...but more so on their personality. I dunno...it just strikes a bad chord with me.

Looking at people when they're smoking is nice. I like looking at them. It doesn't matter what they look like. They seem to have a casual, laid-back image that I would simply die for.

On the other hand, I'm not a smoker. I quit. I agree, I am the worst moaner when it comes to smokers, but I'm not that bad. However, I do remember the good old days.

Memories... :D

Don't you miss smoking? I quit 3 months ago, and I still get the craving real bad.

Yes, I miss smoking. I haven't smoked in over a year and I miss it but i don't think about it as often now. The first few weeks were really difficult to quit, but I got there. Cigarettes now repulse me. I think I had what can only be called an overdose of nicotine. Once my body had had enough, I gagged every time I tried to smoke.

Aren't I lucky?

Yes! Very lucky! I tried to quit before, but that got no where. I was soooo close to lighting one up the other day. Ah well!

OK!! I admit it! I smoke, so shoot me now! I am in a high stress job and that isn't an excuse. But it does get me out the door for 5 minutes.
Have cut down a lot though have about 15 a day instead of 25.
Can't wait till i quit.

You have to have willpower to quit. You have to have real willpower for the first few weeks and months. If you don't, you'll never succeed. It helps if people around you know that you are trying to quit.

Hey hey! The guy`s MARRIED Mariamaria!!!!! :lol: Only joking hun! I don`t mind people who smoke, Just aslong as it`s not my Boyfriend!! He dosn`t, so that`s great. Im not a smoker either. It`s great that certain places people are not allowed to smoke in. Worst luck to be at a bus stop with a bunch of smokers!!! Good to see smokers (Sometimes) think about how us Non people feel! :)
