Question: When do people usually take up smoking in karachi?

If you smoke, please tell us when you started, if you dont, then let us know about people in your surroundings.

Personally, i started this habit back in college, for no other reason than digestive help (that was my official excuse). Mostly though, i was just tired of everybody asking me when i had started smoking when i didn’t and eventually gave into it.

Whats your story?

    i dont see any charm/use of smoking. or maybe i’m yet to have a heartbreak. i did smoked a couple of times though. one of them was at the height of abt 12000ft right infront of the killer mountian, nanga parbat; sitting on a wooden bench in a camp fire at Fairy Meadows.
    ppl around me r mostly non-smokers, maybe thats a reason of me being the same. one of my friend started smoking during his short stint in a night-shift job. his colleagues smoked coz they think it helps them stay up and awake during the length of night and most importantly concentrate on their work. thanxfully he quit that job and with that smoking as well.

    Well, I started smoking at age 15 under the urgings of peers, I didn’t know how to inhale and the first time I did I almost passed out. The second time was a little better, the third time I was hooked for life. Few experiences are as rewarding.

    In the ensuing 55 years I calculate that I’ve smoked over 600,000 cigarettes without the slightest ill effects. So you can see why I have little patience with the kind of ass—- who claims smelling it is deadly, just because the “authorities” say so.
    The authorities are self-serving liars, numbskulls!

    Actually, I tried smoking, drinking, smoking weed, etc (except heroine, cocaine, etc), but I was never addicted ever to any of these. You call it self-control or what?

    I won’t let weed or drinks pass by now, but i can go without them for months

    I started when I was 16 or 17
    In fact I had my first one well before that
    Then it was kind of “Show Off” but after 10 years I’m still stuck with the thing
    Though I never smoked weed took any drugs but that doesn’t make it any good, does it?

    hmmm, I started in 1997, when i was a college student. The reason was that i had been enchanted by all those ‘heroes’ and ‘cool guys’ and how Clint Eastwood would literally chew on a cigarette… ah silly me! Another reason for starting the smoking ritual was my friends who influenced me to start this habit.
    I stayed away from cigarettes for more than seven years before taking up the habit again in 2007. No stopping me since then.
    I belong to a group of people known as ‘Software Engineers’ and a HUGE ratio of them consume a large amount of tobacco on hourly basis, the reason might be a highly demanding nature of job and staying late at office for an extended period of time.
