Well, I've been thinking a lot about smoking and shiz.
My theory is that it skips a generation. My proof of this is my dad has never smoked but his father did and my step dad has never smoked and his mother and father did. I'm not sure about my mother but she doesn't smoke at all. I smoke a lot and I put this down to my parents not smoking as it seems to have be glamorised by my grandparents smoking in front of me as a child and my parents looking down upon it.

So my question to the pit is, do you smoke? If so, do your parents smoke?

I think this should bring up some interesting results...Poll coming soon.

i don't believe there is a correlation at all

There may be a correlation. I know my cousins smoke and their parents don't.

Oh and I just noticed the last poll option is dumb.

No, there most likely isn't at all.
I smoke, parents smoke, grandparents smoke etc.
My mate smokes, his parents smoke, his grandparents don't.
My other mate smokes, his parents don't, his grandparents don't.

There isn't a correlation at all. It's different for different people, nor should it really make sense that there's a correlation.

I think TS has it backwards--kids growing up in a house with parents who smoke are much more likely to become smokers themselves.


That could be a possibility, I must admit. I just want to find out about this. I find it interesting who is more likely to do it.

On one side my grandparents smoke, and all their children except my dad smoke.
On the other side my grandparents didn't smoke, and none of their children smoke.

None of my immediate cousins or my brother and sisters smoke (all though my brother does chew).

I think its a generational (real word?) thing, I think (at least in United States of America) that less people are smoking with every generation. I know this is different in other parts of the world from going to a very diverse university. I find less Americans (at least in the 18-22 age and going to university) smoke, while Asians and Indians have a much, much higher percentage of smokers.

Exactly the question I was going to make

No tobacco, yes weed

no one in my family smokes weed (mother's family, my father's family is full of addicts)

My grandmother used to smoke cigarette and 2 of my uncles smoke.

Generally I did mean tobacco, however the weed question does add a whole new dimension to the thread.

Just depends on the person, my big brother doesn't smoke but me and my little brother do.
#16
Oddly, I smoke. My dad didn't, my grandpa did and my great grandpa didn't. (on my dad's side)

My mom smokes, and her parents didn't. Literally everyone from her generation in the family does though.
#18
My mom's side pretty much all smoke, (or did until they died/were put on oxygen) and the only person on my dad's side that smoked was my dad, and he quit at least a decade ago. My sister smokes, my mom has almost completely quit in the last month, and I have never smoked a cigarette in my life, but I do smoke weed regularly.

My parents stopped smoking before I was born. My grandpa died younger than he should have from smoking. Seeing him in the hospital like that before he died ensured that I'd never smoke ever.

Ok, additional question to the original topic. What, in your opinion has influenced you to smoke or not smoke?

My grandmother on my mother's side smokes, and one of my numerous aunts smokes. That's it. Don't know of anyone else in my immediate family smoking.
When some stranger on the internet says it is so, it must be so.

One of my aunts has been very sick for a long time because of smoking. She can hardly breathe. I would never want to go through that.

Basically what Element just said.

My grandparents used to smoke, my dad smokes, my mom used to smoke, but hasn't smoked for years and years.

I don't smoke. I tried it once, and I could not get the taste out of my throat, it was there for a couple of months.

Parents smoked for a long time plus my friends. Peer pressure, basically.

this and the poll does have two identical options!

My Mom does not smoke but my Dad does. I don't smoke cigs but one of my brothers does. My brother is more in line with my dad and I'm more in line with my Mom.

But everybody at one point in their life has smoked weed in my family.

There are 3 things that kept me from smoking:

1)My parents never seemed to enjoy it when I was a child, and they constantly bitched when they weren't allowed to smoke somewhere.
2)My friends when I was a teenager all smoked and every day someone would ask me if they could borrow $5 for a pack of cigs, bitch when I refused, and bitch for the rest of the day because they didn't have any.
3)Watching my grandmother in the hospital with pretty much every respiratory problem related to smoking short of actual cancer.
