Re: Have you ever...

  • Sadly, I once was a smoker.  I know, it's totally gross and I am so glad that I don't do it anymore.  

    I really hate the fact that I smoked for a period of my life.  For whatever reason, I am always embarrassed to admit I was a smoker.

  • I used to do it back in my young and foolish days when I would go out to a bar.  I never went out and bought cigarettes- just bummed them off of other people.  I quit when I found out I was pregnant with DD and haven't had a desire do it since.  I have smoked tobacco in a hookah few times since though (not while pregnant, of course).  I've literally only done that about a half dozen times though.  I won't rule out ever doing that again, but I can't see it being more than a once a year, at the very most, thing.

    I know what a hookah is, but what's the benefit (or draw, I guess) of using a hookah as opposed to smoking a regular cigarette?

    The hookha is more of a social thing.  There's a bar we go to once in a blue moon and they have couches and comfy chairs and you order a hookha to share with everyone at your table.  They give you each a little plastic tip so that you don't have to share your germs, but you pass it around.  They also flavor the tobacco- a popular one is apple.  It's fun for a laid back evening with friends.  And you go home smelling like fruit, not cigarettes.  It's still bad for you, but it's all in how often you do it.

    Hmmm. Interesting.  Thanks for explaining.
