Default Are you a smoker?

This guy uses a vacuum to suck 400 cigarettes of smoke through water to suspend the tar, then boils it down to show what is left...pretty amazing, and filthy.

I think I'll quit tomorrow.

Nasty. Glad I haven't smoked in years (minus the occasional one, i guess... probably at half a pack a year now)

I'm a hookah smoker and love it. I know it's not a healthy "hobby" by any means, but to me it's much better than ciggs. Very relaxing and enjoyable. I'm a member of HookahForum and spend my time there when I'm not browsing around here.
Smoked ciggs somewhat in college, usually just when drinking, but have not smoked them in about a year. It's funny when I smoked I didn't mind the smell or other people smoking around me, but now don't even want to be around it (which is good I guess, just kinda funny).

I am lucky when it comes to cigarettes. I tried it as a kid but it would make me nauseous. It turns out that when my mother was pregnant with me she stopped smoking and could not be around it, this was before the days when women were told to stop smoking during pregnancy. I was also the only one of my siblings that did not smoke, so I guess I was destined to not smoke. I did smoke weed when I was younger but it's been over 15 years since I stopped.

Dad quit smoking some years ago, and after a while he realized he didn't like Mom's cooking any more. Mom quit a few weeks later and discovered she didn't like her cooking either.

Your senses change when you're not exposed to smoke for a while.

I smoke. Luckily though, I have a herd of tiny unicorns living in my lungs. They eat up all the tar and poop it out as rainbows. My wife says I am delusional, but I think she's just jealous of my lung unicorns.

You should breed them and sell them. There would be quite a market for that.

You can't contain a lung unicorn. If they are not free to roam they die. Their carcasses are eaten up by the pancreas sharks who, coincidentally poop tar.

Well, I have been breeding my liver nymphs who eat alcohol and excrete water for a year now and am getting ready to bring them to market. Thought maybe we could a package deal. Ah well.
