<font color='#0000FF'>I have voted as non smoker,  which is true except for a very brief dabble about 25 years ago when still at school.  My Mother soon put a stop to it and I am very glad she did.
 
  Now instead of all those fivers going up in smoke I go on dive holidays, I couldn't bo both

ex smoker. But...In my old dive club there was a theory which went "alcohol prepares you for the effects of narcosis, whilst smoking gets you used to managing on less oxygen. Therefore divers should do both as often as possible."  
 Mind you, judging from the average physique they also believed "lots of blubber protects you from the cold".

Part time smoker.  


Not in the house
Not in front of the kids
Not in front of the wife

Keeps me on about 30 a week. Quit for two years once then a very bad day got me on them again.

I enjoy them thats the problem.

<font color='#0000FF'>No not counting as it was only 1 or two anyway.  
  but if you want me to say Ex then OK, but I have voted already.  That probably makes me feel very proud then.

<font color='#0000FF'>I am one of the very few non-smokers that has never tried one (incidentally so is Ian) but am now rather glad considering the job I do where you get to see the consequences of smoking.

<font color='#FF0000'>Hay Susan where is your local. I just can't resist a girl that can't say no.

Me x smoker but only cose I dont like it no more.
But if you like it do it. Any way who needs the stress of giving up it can contribute to diving  problems.
