This thread reminds me...under the creek bridge on the family farm, eight years old...big brother says, "Take this, breathe it in & blow it out like this."
I gagged, choked & thought I was gonna puke. I was hooked. Smoked a pack-a-day from age 10 to 36. Kids' stuff. I am now >5 years tobacco-free. I still may find myself in a situation where I think I might like a smoke, but I then remember the agony of those first 5 days of trying to break the addiction to nicotine and I'm grateful to never have to suffer a withdrawl like that again. Ex-junkie talk. Breathe deep, breathe in the life.
