I always thought that smoking was something you got to do when you became an adult. All adults smoked it was required!

When I was a young child, my parents constantly talked to me about drugs and how bad they were, and how they were illegal, and lumped cigarettes into that category. One day I was riding the bus to school when I saw a police officer sitting in his car, smoking a cigarette, and I wondered who was going to arrest him!

Once when i was younger (im talking 4 or 5) i saw a man smoking a cigar. my (psycho) brother told me it was actually a human finger and if i wasnt nice to the man, (who was his friends dad) the man would come and chop my finger off to smoke it(because smokings addictive and he would be wanting onother soon). i left the house with all my fingers on and told all my friends my narrow escape. once when i was at my friends house these ladies came to the door selling cigarettes.when i opened the door i nociced one of them was smoking and needless to say i screamed and slammed the door in their face

I used to think that "smoking a bowl" required a large cereal bowl sized aluminum bowl that people used like when you hyperventilate and hold your head over a bowl of steaming water or whatever. I wish someone woulda just said it's like smoking a pipe with tobacco like sherlock holmes but it's weed in there instead!

I believed until quite recently that chain smokers all got together in a group and smoked eachothers cigarettes, then passed them on in the circle.

My mom had convinced me that smoking and drinking are the worst thing in the whole world. So, when i was about 10, i overheard my sister talking to a friend and describing how she got drunk the previous Saturday (she was 17 then). I didnīt say anything but i totally freaked out. One week later, i found cigarettes on her closet. I couldnt help myself: i went straight to mum and told her my sister is becoming a tramp and soon she would die.

I used to believe that cigarettes came in different flavors, but people had to lick them to taste it. I also believed that you blew into a cigarette instead of breathing in.

I used to believe that men have to shave because they smoke cigarettes. (my dad used to smoke, mum -never!) I was surprised once seeing my non-smoking uncle shaving in the bathroom and a few days later I saw my friend's mother smoking.

I used to think that if someone was quitting smoking "cold turkey", it meant that every time they had a craving for a cigarette they would go to the fridge and eat a piece of cold turkey instead and that would make the craving go away. I figured that's why everyone said it was so hard to quit "cold turkey", because I didn't really see how eating meat could help. And I believed this until high school!

When I was 7, I thought if you started smoking and didn't stop, you would instantly get cancer and die. So when I saw my sister start smoking, I screamed and ran to my room and started crying.

I used to think all grownups smoked cuz the ones around me did. But i never wanted to smoke cuz it smelled bad. Now i'm very glad i don't have to cuz i know better and i still hate the smell.

When people smoked tobacco with the pipe, I thought that they were actually cooking up something with fire. When it was done "cooking", they would suck the pipe and "eat" some sweet-tasting, warm, gooey caramel-like substance.

When I was little I hated my mom smoking and tried hard to make her quit but she said she couldn't. I didn't believe her. Then when I was 15 I smoked to get a girl who smoked to like me. It wasn't long before I found out mom was telling the truth. I tried and tried and tried but I could not quit. I was now a nicotine addict too.

I used to believe that only men smoked cigarettes and only women drank coffee. I guess this because my dad smoked but didn't drink coffee and my mom drank coffee and didn't smoke. When my dad's (male) friend drank coffee in the morning I was preplexed.
