If I had a penny for everytime I have had that said to me, Id be rich! I was at a meeting today, and truthfully I have not been smoking much round other people in work so far its been more of a private thing. But today, I was just "I need a cigarette!!!"
So I asked one of the team where the smoking room was and I was directed followed closely by "God Louise, I never knew you smoked!" So I usually then explain how my sisters introduced me to it and how I got into it. I just find it rather amusing to behold peoples reactions.
If I were suddenly to become a vegitarian, nobody would notice or care, yet, when they find out you have become a smoker its such a different reaction. I actually quite like being different. It sets me apart from a non-smoker like I have an extra somethign in my life they dont.
I know the risks and all, but sometimes they are so easy to overlook.
Oh my God! Do you smoke? This was my first response ever to my girl friend. I just want to say her sorry because i wasn't aware of her habit. Since, i have decided to quit smoking. I will convience here to quit smoking too.
