I don’t smoke. Never have. That’s to say I occasionally smoked a cigarette here or there (usually not while sober), and I have smoked the odd after diner cigar. But in effect I don’t smoke.
But when people ask me and I tell them that I tried to start smoking but never managed, they all react in the same semi-shocked way. They all think it’s silly, strange and stupid to want to start smoking. So I ask them why they started smoking and why that wasn’t silly, strange and stupid.
Don’t take it out on me. Not my fault I don’t like the taste.
