Is it possible to smoke in moderation?
Ever since I got to GWU, I start smoking. My first ever tobacco cigarette, although it is illegal to market them as cigarettes, is a Black, or a clove cigarette. Ever since then I’ve been smoking two or three cigarettes every week. I don’t smoke because I think it looks cool, or because I’m addicted, but because I like the taste of tobacco smoke.
That means if I do get addicted to cigarettes, nicotine patches or the “E-Cigarettes” won’t help me. I smoke for the taste, not for the nicotine.
Now, I’m actually quite afraid that I might become addicted to cigarettes. I do have ways to prevent myself from getting addicted. I’ll never buy my own cigarettes, so I can only smoke when a friend would give one to me. I also don’t inhale that much.
I might switch to cigars because they’re more difficult to come by and you can’t purposely inhale cigar smoke. That might let me enjoy the taste of tobacco, as well as prevent myself from getting addicted, or getting cancer…
Do you believe it’s possible to smoke in moderation? Or is it something that you should never do?
