Social Smoker? What is that?


I get a kick out of the profile choices concerning smoking and drinking. Almost everyone who smokes show that they are a "social smoker" - myself included. But really, what the heck is a social smoker? A person that only smokes when they go out? Or anytime they are around people (maybe just to piss everyone off)? I suppose there are those who do that, but I've never known anyone that does. Let's face it, people who smoke are smokers. They do it all the time, even when no one is around!

The other choice for smokers is "heavy smoker". I've seen a few people that were honest enough to choose this one. I'm not sure if I'm a heavy smoker or not. I'd like to think I'm not, but I'm not sure how many cigarettes a day you have to smoke to be considered a heavy smoker. Well, I gave myself the benifit of the doubt and decided I wasn't a "heavy smoker", so I must be a "social smoker". Right?

When I saw the "heavy drinker" choice I laughed. Who is going to admit it if they are a heavy drinker? I'm pretty sure that's not on anyone's list of desirable qualities when looking for a partner.

I have seen one person who has chosen "heavy drinker" though. I wonder if it was a mistake, or if the person was being brutaly honest. Now that I think about it, it was in a woman's profile, so it may have been a clever ploy. What man wouldn't be attracted to a woman that you don't have to ply with liquor because she does it all by herself. Heh, you women are a sneaky bunch!

Tango, I do actually know a few genuine social smoker, they are people who tend to only smoke when having a few drinks while out on the town with friends, which amounts to less than a pack a month and smoked all at the one time, personnally I am such a smoker of cigars, very rare but I do enjoy them on occasion.....although it is not uncommon for a social smoker to become one of us a heavy smoker who just doesn't want to admit that they are hooked.

Ladies and Gentleman we all know us Pack a Day smokers are NOT in fact social smokers, and we we select it for one reason and one reason only, we ourselves do not wish to admit to the public let alone ourselves, that we have lost control, and the words 'heavy smoker' bring dread to our hearts.

I am one of the few horrendously heavy smokers in the world who has been advised by medical professionals to NOT QUIT SMOKING they believe the shock to my system of attempting to do so, could kill me more readily than the high risk of Cancer, Bloodclots and heart disease.

I state truthfully, that the last time I attempted to Quit smoking, I had a luxurious Ambulance ride, followed by a 3 day hospital admittance on Oxygen, My condition did not begin to stabilise until an hour after I managed to sneak out of the ward on the pretense of wondering where my husband had got too and bod a smoke off a visitor who was hanging out by the cafeteria having a fag!

it is the same situation here sexy, are even outdoor areas where smoking is prohibited, you get used to it though.....my problem is the moment I have no smokes at all even if I wanted one, I start to stress lol...

apparently I have a high stress life, Doctors have told me I have to reduce the stress as at the moment its the smokes doing that....lol problem with that is if I could remove those things that stress me, don't they think I would be doing that by now....

OMG boney is trying to interfere with my typing Urgh that Tongue in my ear!

now back on track

They reckon if I can reduce my stress even by half and reduce the amount I smoke, it wouldn't be so bad lol.....

I have tried to quit smoking (before the docs told me that wasn't actually a good idea for me) by keeping a full unopened pack in the house, and simply forcing myself to go without, I didn't do to bad I managed 18 hours (but then I must admit I wasn't so heavy a smoker back then either), but then our flat mate open the pack and raided it....if its open I just got to have one!

Social smoking isn't that smoking socially? Enjoying a cigarette with in the company of other people. Of course here in South Australia with it's liberal cannabis laws it can also include smoking of another substance which is illegal in many places (it is too long of a topic to fill up Tango's blog but fuck it I will anyway) now where was I? Yeah dolphins. I smoke socially and anti socially just to piss off reformed smokers and see their lips quiver as i drag on a cigarette and have to excuse themselves from the room and stop that quasi-hysterical rant they preach about how much better they are now they have stopped smoking. Sometimes i give up smoking just so i too can irritate the crap out of people I have never met before who are enjoying one of the few legal vices left for them. I am currently teetotal which i do now and then because drinking becomes boring. No I'll change that one I used to drink to save the kiddies from alcohol but stopped when I found out they were making it faster than i could drink it all and save the kiddies. Now hurry up and give me my fucking Nobel prize for humanitarian services because I have wrote a fucking great acceptance speech.
