: One thing that makes me a little shy about
: smoking around others- even when the other
: smokers are strangers- is that I know I
: look like an amateur, almost like a 13-year
: old sneaking a parent's cigarettes. Other
: times, I just don't care, but I'm usually
: feeling a little self-conscious about that.
The funny thing is, I've never thought about this. When I'm smoking, it's like I'm in my own little world, if you know what I mean. And when I think of what other people might think if they see me smoke, I think of it more in terms of people simply seeing me smoking rather than how I might look while smoking compared to other people smoking. But I guess looking like an 'amateur' while smoking is DEFINITELY a factor to consider. After all, I've never smoked in front of another human being - ever. So I've never had anyone who could 'correct' anything I might be doing 'wrong'.
