smoking?

Postby mummyzz » Fri Mar 15, 2013 4:25 pm

Just an idea that came to me.

How many people here have had parents that smoked, including smoking whilst pregnant, lived in a smoky environment, and or smoked themselves.

I thought it might throw up some interesting statistics and make for some interesting reading

In my case. My parents have always smoked, even whilst pregnant.
I smoked for 10 years from age 21 to 31.

I was also always around smokers.

My mum smoked (not sure if she did with pregnancy)
My nan and grandad who i stayed with very often were chain smokers (nan on 50 a day!) :yikes:
All visitors smoked, always smoke around.

Mum gave up when i was a teenager, grandparents cut down.

Back then smokin was a social thing and you couldnt go anywhere without people lighting and in public like buses, resturants etc.

Then soon as it was said that smokin is a severe health risk changes began but by then i was addicted to nicotine myself and so i have had a battle with it ever since :roll:

Neither of myparents smoked.

I smoked from 14 to 41 then had hypnotherapy and have never smoked since.

I'm 53 now and just a whif of smoke makes me heave, yuk!

Hi mummyz

What an interesting look at things I like these kind of posts as I like to see if we have any common factors amongst us. Here's my smoking info:

Parents smoked from a very early age quite heavily.
Not sure if my mum smoked while pregnant - I think she did but not as many as before.
My maternal granddad smoked a lot too and I stayed at their house a lot over my childhood.
All my aunties and uncles smoked so family parties were basically a room filled with smoke and vol au vonts lol.
My OH now smokes as do a lot of our friends/his family.

I don't smoke and it has never appealed to me to do so.

Like Lisa I have been around smokers a lot growing up and still am to a certain extent.

My dad smoked, but quit when I was 16. His parents, who looked after me when I was young, also smoked back then, and apparently I was always getting coughs and colds.

My mother smoked when I was younger and insisted on smoking in the car even though it made me sick. I know she smoked though out Pg. I would never had married someone who smokes, so little exposure to smoking in adult life. :-?

My parents never smoked and so as a child I wasn't exposed to it, but as a teenager I smoked (didn't last long, I hated it!) and was around heavy smokers which continued up until around my 30s.

Can't stand the smell of it now bleuuu!
