I smoked cigarettes when I was younger because I did think it was cool but I stopped.
And I've smoked pot before but now that's VERY VERY VERY rare (can't remember the last time) as I dont' enjoy it anymore plus the actual act of smoking is too risky anymore.
I was 8 when my Uncle died so that's been my reason for never smoking. I've had moments where I've considered it, but his death was to tragic, his life was wasted. I just kept thinking for the long term.
No offence, but I cannot stand people who smoke pot. Once they're stoned they're just mindless idiots. I had stoned people try and shove a joint into my cat's mouth (the one in the picture) and that was also when I realised I never wanted to be like that.
Still, it's always good to see people stop smoking. Because if you leave it too late you're in for a lot of trouble! You've probably avoided that!
