This is a question Your first cigarette

To be honest, inhaling the fumes from some burning leaves isn't the most natural thing in the world.
Tell us about the first time. Where, when, and who were you trying to show off to?

Or, if you've never tried a cigarette, tell us something interesting on the subject of smoking.

Personally, I've never ever smoked a cigarette. Lung damage from pneumonia put me off.

As ever, I did it backwards
I know many people who smoke and who disliked their first cigarette- one chap I know was even lavishly sick and yet now enjoys 20 a day.

I had my first and only cigarette (a Marlboro medium for the record) at 13. It was amazing- a long drag got parts of my brain responding in ways they hadn't done before. I had a slight feeling of lightheadedness but otherwise I felt ridiculously good.

Why then, do I not smoke like a chimney? Well, I was so unsettled by how good that cheeky snout was, that I left it there and then. I wasn't so much worried about my health (13 year olds don't die do they?) but even in 1994 tobacco was expensive and I suspected I'd go broke.

I've made up for it with too much booze, and a period of heady amphetamine and acid use as well so my early attempts at preservation fell over soon enough.

Length? Not a king size one in this case.
