I don't count 50 as old, but I don't see why you'd be concerned with getting hooked at that age either. Unless you plan on living another 50 years, you likely won't have a bit of a problem with smoking. |
Now, what the other poster said is true: It is possible for some people to smoke now and then and not get hooked. But at core, a smoking addiction is a chicken-and-egg proposition--if you like smoking, it's difficult to avoid getting hooked, and if you're hooked it's difficult to not enjoy your habit. Imagine tasting a commonly-available dish for the first time and realizing that you love it, and each time you try it after that it seems to taste even better. How likely are you to decide to give it up for good? How likely are you to want to do so?
In the end, people become addicted smokers because smoking gives them real pleasure, and smoking becomes even more pleasurable once you're hooked. I'd have fun with my fetish if I were you, but the choice is obviously yours.
: I'm 50+ and have had a smoking fetish since I
: can remember...But am a non smoker. I had a
: girl friend a while back who gave me smokey
: kisses which I enjoyed alot, but never
: picked up a cigarette myself. Recently I
: got a ride from a hot co-work (much younger
: than me) who is a long time smoker. My car
: was being repaired and she gave me a lift to
: pick it up after work. I wanted to see her
: smoke in the car, but she was being polite
: and didn't light up. I was in such a frenzy
: to see her smoke, that I finally grabed her
: purse and said "I need a
: cigarette". She said "You don't
: smoke!" I quickly explained I was
: stessed out from work and needed one...I lit
: up (and she quickly followed) and was able
: to successfully inhale...and I enjoyed it!
: (But got real dizzy) She was amazed but
: cautioned me about inhaling and that I would
: get addicted. Since then she has given me
: cigarettes on the sly and we have smoked
: together at lunch until the point she bought
: me a pack and I have been closet smoking
: ever since. I think I'm addicted, but am
: unsure if its a full fledged physical
: addiction or just the thrill of acting it
: out after all these years of fantasizing
: about it. I enjoy it, especially watching
: myself exhale volumes of smoke, but am
: wondering should I quit now?
