It's interesting looking at the poll, i'd have expected it to be a lot closer than that. Unless people who do smoke are hesitant to vote, or don't consider their smoking to be smoking.

The way I smoke is pretty strange to my other smoking friends who really seem to need cigarettes almost every day (usually - every day). I smoke 1-2 cigarettes with my friend almost every week (school term only - she picks up my little one from school one day a week), then I don't smoke at all, then I may have one with somebody else, but I just don't smoke much on my own. Sometimes I can go months without a cigarette and then suddenly buy a pack and smoke it in 3 days, then no more for months again. They just don't have that addictive pull for me although I enjoy a nicotine hit and I keep coming back to them if I feel like it.

Once I even smoked a whole pack of 20s in one night and the next day I felt really bad and didn't want to smoke for ages after that.

It would be interesting to know the ages of voters to see if it's an age thing , you are definately not down with the kids if you smoke these days.

In the 1960s, EVERY adult, it seemed, smoked. And drank at least beer.

I have enough problems without smoking, drinking, or doing drugs to do any of those things.

I smoked a pack a day for thirty years. I quit ten years ago.

Nope, never will, and I loathe being within it's circulating presence (aversion to second-hand smoking) alongside it's malevolent putridness.
