My dad started when he was 8. He's 58 now, and he's already had a heart attack. Still smokes, though.

I dabbled before I was legal (18, I think), but people didn't enforce the age thing like they do now. I didn't start smoking in earnest until I was 18. It was the cool thing to do among my peer group.
I quit just over 10 years ago.

I first smoked when I was 14. Didn't start smoking regularly until I was around 17.

I started smoking when I was 11 and I've been smoking ever since.

Just realized this question was here, but I already answered your question in the other question.

But no, my first cigarette was on my 18th birthday
although I did have a puff or two of a swisher before then, and I started smoking pot before then.

19
I was curious about the appeal of it all so decided to find out
it's ok but I stopped before it became a habit

I started at liiiike....12 or 13?
I started because my friends are stupid and told me smoking a cig gets you higher when you're baked. Which is retarded and f.cking wrong. I will say it definitely puts the high on a different wavelength but it doesn't get you f.cking higher...

I'd just like to say that I wouldn't call myself a "smoker."
It's been months since I've had one, and I never have more than one per... like, month.

The most frequently I used to smoke was about one pack a week. Luckily I never became addicted or anything. I enjoy having a cigarette, but smoking is not a habit I'd like to have.

I wouldn't call it higher, but it's AWESOME!

Oddly, no.

I tried it once when I was like 9 back when I lived in Germany, but I don't know what the laws are as far as smoking.

14. Worst decision of my life
10 yrs ago - Thursday 3/24/11 - 2:31:14 AM EST (GMT-5)
I tried my first when I was like 15 because I was in the rebellious "lets do illegal sh*t!!" stage of my life. It was illegal for me, so I tried it. Ive never been addicted though, and dont smoke much. Its just a stress reliever/ something I do when I drink/ to help me sleep now.

I think legal age would have been 16 and I started around 13 or 14.
10 yrs ago - Thursday 3/24/11 - 5:46:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
I started smoking when I was 14 (almost 15) and I quit when I was 31. (just over a year ago).
10 yrs ago - Thursday 3/24/11 - 7:26:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
I tried my first one at 11. I smoked casually at 14 and 15 and probably became addicted by 16.
There was a store near my house that would sell to ANYONE. 10 year old kids would ride their bike there and buy smokes.

lol @ your profile pic.
I tried smoking, but I didn't feel like I was gaining anything so I left it at that and never touched nuttin again.

14 was the age...seemed like a good idea then

I tried it at 14, when my friend was picking up snipes to start a smoking habit (GROSS). I used to swipe one or two of my mom's Marlboro Reds, then smoke a bit on them with my friend so that she would quit picking up used cigs. I didn't actually start smoking in earnest until I was about 20.

I was 14. I don't do it anymore though. So, I guess I only smoked for 2 years and I decided to quit, and I did. And I haven't smoked since.

Yes, I was 14. I started smoking because of peer pressure.
10 yrs ago - Thursday 4/14/11 - 1:44:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
I am an ex-smoker. I started smoking on the age of 14. I quitted smoking at the age of 23, now i am 25 years old. I started smoking out of curiosity.

I was a late bloomer at age 20 after someone offered me a smoke.
