About my smoking:
25 year old Female from San Diego, California, United States
First time I smoked I was 13 when I began to smoke butts I found on the ground. Eventually, I graduated to snagging unattended packs on neighborhood patios and finding them from older kids. It wasn't until later in High school that it became an engrained, die-hard habit.
Funny enough, I used to torment my mom in attempt to get her to quit smoking after a "say no" program early on in school. I would throw her individual smokes over the fence, but she climbed over and was able to easily retrieve them. That's why the next time I tossed them in the dumpster, but only after breaking each & every one! Better believe she tried retrieving those, too!
