Am I Addicted To Smoking?

Postby matchitehew53 » Mon Oct 09, 2017 2:00 am

- Please no horrible comments or answers

Basically I've tried e-cigs a few times but never got addicted and 2 nights ago I tried a drag of my friends cigarette. Not going to lie, I coughed but I still asked for another drag. Anyway before I knew it I was begging for more. I loved it. I feel really stupid now. The next day I had a full cigarette to myself with a friend and I felt relaxed and it chilled me out. I really liked it. After that I stopped but since I've got home all that's been on my mind is cigarettes. I want one but I don't at the same time. I don't know if I'm addicted, I doubt it because my friends were having another cigarette later in the evening and I never had one but this is worrying me. I'm 15 and don't want to get into a bad smoking addiction. I enjoyed it though.. Please sensible answers?

I think I had the equivalent of one cigarette on the Friday night and on the Saturday night I had a drag of my friends and one to myself.

Don't smoke anymore and the craving will fade. Smoking is a hard dangerous road to go down. It is relaxing but it's so dangerous. I can't stress it enough. You're not addicted but it's very easy to become addicted. You liked the cigarette and it just goes from there.
Just don't keep doing it and you'll be fine. It took me five years to quit and it's a battle every day. It's really not worth it. Best of luck to you hun!

You're not exactly addicted.
But obviously, you enjoy smoking cigarettes, and you'll probably eventually be a smoker.

My main advice at this point is to keep it to a minimum until you're 18.
They have really cracked down on underaged sales of cigarettes, and it will be hard for you to buy them.
Try not to smoke every day.
When you get a pack, save them as a special treat.
When you're 18, you'll be able to smoke as much as you want.
Since you probably will become addicted eventually, it's important to really watch it now.
You don't want to get to the point where you really are craving a cigarette and can't get one.

If your friends and family are understanding and will buy cigarettes for you, then you'll be better off.
But you probably shouldn't count on that for now.
Until you're 18, try to really keep it to a minimum.
When you turn 18, you can start smoking whenever you want.

Yes, cigarettes are addicting, why do you think its so difficult to quit sometimes? Its because your body starts depending on it. Look you can't have both, you either choose this and be addicted or quit and let your body shake it off, I would suggest quitting...and honestly, stick to weed lol its way better and not addictive haha
