When and why did you start? How much do you smoke? Do you want to quit now? Does it bother you that it is bad for health? Does lack of freedom have anything to do with starting to smoke? It's a trend I've seen amongst my friends. Is it perceived as cool to smoke? For the non-smokers: Do you hate it? Do you wish to strangle people who smoke around you? Why don't you smoke anyway(if there are reasons other than health)? Also....I'm confused as to whether smoking in public places is banned. If it is, is it being enforced anywhere? Just something I've always been curious about. My own answers: No, I don't smoke. I do think that lack of freedom might be a factor in a lot of people starting to smoke. I also think it IS perceived as cool to smoke though I'm really not sure why. As a non-smoker: I don't hate it. It does bother me when people smoke around me but I don't too big a deal out of it....and I don't nag them. and I don't smoke because my dad used to be a chain smoker and mum used to give him hell over it sometimes. He still smokes though not as much as he used to so he still gets hell but perhaps just the fourth depth instead of the ninth.
