Its smell is nearly as offensive as shit. It is really awful. After smoking almost 2 packs a day for the last 8 years I'm now over a month smoke free.

They say an ex smoker is more critical of the smell than a person who has never smoked. I agree with this.
Some might say it's just as dangerous as smoking. I've had a bike for most of my adult life and plan to ride forever. I didn't want to smoke forever. I'd have way more fun riding a bike than having to focus every 3 hours or so on the next cigarette.
Even with the same or higher risk of riding a motorcycle, I'll take the risk of the bike over ciggies any day. I'm a bit baffled by all these responses. I don't smoke, but is it that bad for people?

Smoke by itself isn't bad. But smoke mixed with all sorts of chemicals and toxins, along with natural human body odors is straight up vomit-inducing.

Furthermore, secondhand smoke can affect the health of people around the smoker as well.
My mom was a full time smoker, smoked in the house and in the car constantly. I still have lung issues because of it. Started working at a drive through window and pretty much just loathe people that smoke while they go through.
For my sake, and that of those around them. One of my mother's friends never smoked, but was married for many years to smokers. She is on her second bout of lung cancer, and is probably going to die from it. I don't smoke and I don't think they smell that bad.
But my dad was a big smoker, so maybe I just got used to it growing up. I gave up smoking cigarettes ages ago but it's strange and good! I remember smoking being allowed in restaurants. Everyone used to smoke. I seem to have noticed more women smoking.
I had a couple of them flirt with me the other day but I just wasn't feeling it precisely because of the smoking. She came over and sat at my table in a barand tried talking to me.
I started to talk to her, but then she pulled out a pack and went outside, and I basically ignored her when she came back, not rudely, just nods and grins, and back to watching the band. After a few failed attempts to regain my attention, she asked my friend if we were gay.
I've stopped mid-conversation and walked away from girls when I saw the pack in their purse. Long term dating?Dating Service Commercial (Jon Lajoie)

Never date someone with the intention of changing something about them There is no intention to change them at first. But if it's apparent that I'll be with them for the long run, then they gotta at least make an effort to be healthier.
Nothing is worse than watching someone you love kill themselves slowing. If they want to carry on that's fine, but I won't be able to stand by and watch it, so I'll leave. I don't smoke, and have never smoked, and I wouldn't care. I don't really mind the smell much at all, smoke breaks sound like a good excuse to go outside and chill, I don't have enough money that she'd sponge for packs, and I don't really plan on living too long anyway.
And if my current girlfriend started smoking, I would tell her that is a dealbreaker for me and leave it up to her if she wants to continue. I cannot stand the smell. My mom still smokes every day. It's a horrible habit and sometimes smokers do not realize how selfish they can be to smoke. I prefer not to date a smoker, but if you're in the dating game for too long you may find that your standards may vary For me a lot of the time I would use it as a crutch while stressed out, it would have a noticeable calming affect and I would feel "happier".
It also pairs well and enhances your high when combined with it her drugs like alcohol. That being said it's a horrible habit.
I just wanted to point out there is a physical noticable high. I'd prefer not, but I wouldn't call it a dealbreaker. I smoke cigars every once in a while, so my stance on tobacco is not as harsh as it used to be. I smoke the occasional cigar as well, but I won't date a cigarette smoker. Smelling like a cigar once a month or so isn't the same thing as smelling and tasting like cigarettes every day all day.
I can tolerate an "occasion smoker" girlfriend. For me the biggest dealbreaking with a real smoker is that I don't want to share my life with an addict. I'd consider it a downside if a girl smokes occasionally at a party or whatever, but not a dealbreaker. I could see that. I see smoking kind of like drinking. Every once in a while is fine. Everyday is a problem. Yeah, I make a pack last about a month, only at nights or events.
It's an indulgence I budget for myself. Cigars smell way better than ciggarettes though I can't handle being around cigarettes but cigars are tolerable. I'd way rather kiss someone who just smoked a couple cigarettes than someone who just smoked a cigar. I couldn't; it would be a big deal for me and I've always felt that way. I mean, it's their choice and I wouldn't tell someone to stop, but no I really don't like spending time around people who smoke and when I was younger I lost a relative who smoked and drank a lot to throat cancer so I'm really not a fan.
Plus I struggle with the stink and the smoke aggravates my breathing terribly. Smokers get blinded to the smell, but it clings to people who smoke and if you smoke a lot it can be really foul, in some cases it's been strong enough to make me retch.

Or if I just smoke a cigarette once every few months for specific occasions? I'm not saying I wouldn't date non-smokers. I definitely did I just didn't actively pursue them but if they pursued me I didn't shut them down I just had to make sure they really didn't hold some resentment because I smoked. If they were totally fine that I smoked and didn't treat me like I was lesser than them then it was fine. It was just sort of an extra step I had to take before I could open up to them that just wasn't there with other smokers.
Yeeeep, as a dude who smokes, I'll avoid non-smokers. I enjoy smoking, I am well aware of the dangers, and I will quit at my pace. Preaching really doesn't help, and in fact makes me want to smoke twice as much out of spite.
It's going to save smokers a lot of strife and providers a lot of wasted breath. Being "ready" helped me quit. That and setting a quit date way way in advance so I didn't have to worry about it for several months.
Feb 19, I know that cigarettes are behind many of the estimated , dating bandwagon, and I'm still inexplicably attracted to cigarette smokers.
I never smoked much though and I started as an adult, so I guess I had an advantage to begin with. I also find talking to other smokers is easier because when you both go out for a smoke together it's kind of an automatic ice breaker.
Conversation flows easier when your having a smoke with someone. Just something I've always noticed. I would date non-smokers tbh as long as they're not judgmental like most of the non-smoker redditors who are so freaking delusional. But I have to say that, on average, smokers are better to keep around if you're a smoker yourself because of the social aspects of smoking, similar to how, on average, people who drink are more fun to go out with if you like to have a drink or two yourself.
We are aware it's a bad habit but everyone has there vices and we don't want to be belittled constantly. I'm not sure why but many redditors think that we smoke only to reduce our lifespan. Just the other day there was a post with someone holding their cigarette out of the car window with a sticker saying "Fuck cancer" on the car. Instantly reddit pulled out their pitchfork saying smokers cannot be against cancer.
That's how many redditors think and it's disgusting. Often they act as if they were "woke af" but in reality they cannot objectively discuss on topics. I've said just this in my other replies it's not about smoking or not smoking it's about the way you treat me. If you are going to look down your nose at me for smoking then I'm not interested, I'm not going to change because someone won't date me.
It's also very true that smokers have an easier time getting to know other smokers. It's an instant ice breaker. My current SO and I got to know each other on our smoke breaks at work conversation is just easier, matter of fact the first time he asked me out we were having a smoke!
But ya people who have never smoked don't understand why we start or why we don't just quit I'm used to it. It's not just reddit it's every where but it's fine I don't care to make people understand I just want to me left alone about my bad habit ya know. I used to smoke. And I liked it at the time, and my husband was a non smoker who dated then married me.

Even when I smoked I knew how bad it was for me and that I would eventually quit. Do you feel that way? Both my SO and I know we are going to quit soon. I know how bad it is for me but that's not what bothers me most, the main reason I want to quit is the money. When I think about how much money I've basically lit on fire I absolutely cringe. We want to buy a house once we finish school so we would rather put our money towards that.
I was a smoker for almost 20 years and quit about 7 months ago for good. I remember being pretty pissed off about a woman who wouldn't date me purely because I smoked. I mean, I knew whybut it bothered me. Now it totally makes sense. The bad breath, the constant stink on my clothes, smelly fingers.
It's just gross. I still miss it so much though. Yeah, since I grew up around smokers. The smell is more soothing than nasty, despite the health risks, but at least I know I can smoke my weed without anyone bitching about the smoke. Smell is disgusting.

I've gone out with girls that only smoked when drinking and it was still too much for me. I have a hard time being friends with smokers for the same reasons. I know I do things that are unhealthy for me, but smoking seems so much worse than that. What sort of person starts smoking when everyone knows how terrible it is? It's not cool and never has been. Nope, I can't even stand being friends with smokers because of the smell and how much it hurts my lungs being around them. I've lost all but one friend that smokes, and it's only because I see him once ever other month.
I just can't be around them. Can't be in their house, can't be in their car, can't be in the backyard. I don't want them in my house, or my car, or my backyard. When I meet new people, and they pull out a pack, well, so much for that, and stop talking to them with any interest.
What's the point of befriending someone I can't hang out with? I don't think so. I don't smoke, and second hand smoke is very unhealthy for you. Even if it wasn't unhealthy, the smell of second hand smoke is very off putting.
I used to think it was a dealbreaker, but my last girlfriend smoked occasionally, usually after drinking. She did a really really good job of getting the smell off.
I don't think it's common and it wouldn't work for me if I could smell it on her or taste it on her. It honestly shocks me to hear any majority of people saying they don't smoke. Then again, I'm fairly poor and in the south so pretty much everyone around me smokes. Yeah I could.
I smoke on and off myself so I don't have a problem with it, I'd encourage her to quit with me though. Though I have to say I kinda like smoking, it's just bad for you.

Humans have a rich history of smoking and in the moment, ignoring the long term effects, it's an enjoyable experience.
I can't stand how some people refuse to acknowledge that viewpoint on it. No, because I would constantly be reminded of the fact that cigarettes killed both of my parents when I was 28 years old, and if my partner smoked there are good odds I'd end up burying her before I got old as well.

Today is day 15 of no smoking for me, and looking back I shudder at how addicted I was to smoking and how I would prioritize it above everything else. I would argue that non smokers know just how addictive it really is, and is the reason they never started. I think that the people that underestimate how addictive nicotine is are the ones that start smoking or are already smokers and haven't tried to quit yet. The reason that a lot of people don't like cigarette smokers is that it's hard to like someone that's currently addicted to anything.

Addiction is horrible, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone, but it hurts those around the addict just as much as it hurts the addict. It's something I'm at least slightly hypocritical about. I smoke spliffs sometimes, which involves tobacco, generally from a cigarette.
But, I wouldn't date someone that smokes cigarettes as a habit. It's not a huge deal for me. I've stopped caring about superficial stuff almost entirely at this point and am just looking for someone who is reasonably healthy and is as interested in me as I am in them. Plus, there's smoking and then there's smoking - a few tabs when on the piss is a very different prospect to someone chaining 40 a day. I used to smoke myself for 9 years before I quit, half my friends are smokers.
I'm used to the smell, it doesn't bother me. So no it's not a big deal for me. Depends on frequency. I've mostly moved onto vaping, but I enjoy a cigarette when I'm drinking, and occasionally with my morning coffee.

Holy shit it turns me on so fucking hard. The smell, the way they lift it up to their lips so casually, and the way their lips part to exhale. It's the hottest thing and I will work harder to please a smoker.
