When my brother and I were little, my Uncle quite smoking and told us that he did it cold turkey. My brother asked me later why cold turkey helped him quit and wondered how much he had to eat!

When my daughter was 4 she saw a men smoking while shoping with her mum. She was very confused because I (her father) was a non smoker and her mother smoked, so she believed that only women are smoking.

When I was around 9 years old I used to believe that if you were under 16 which meant you couldnt smoke, the cigerette would know, and if you were under-age would explode. I thought this is what killed so many people. No-one mentioned cancer to me.

I don't know why, but I used to believe that if you smoked and drank at the same time, you would self-ignite and blow up!I believed that until I was well into my teens!

I used to use an old trailer at my grandparents' house as a playhouse. Once my aunt came over to 'visit' and, playing hostess, I brought her an ashtray. "Oh, I don't smoke" she said. "You don't?" I asked, incredulous. I was about 3 or 4 and because my parents and many of my relatives smoked, I thought all adults smoked!

My parents were both heavy cigarette smokers when I was a kid. I always heard people say "those things'll kill ya" but I had never heard of Cancer or Emphysema before. I used to have a dream, and it was recurring, that my Mom would be lying on her back like one of those circus jugglers who juggle barrels with thier feet, but she'd be juggling this huge rolled up ball of DuMaurier cigarette packages. I used to go to the store for her and buy them and wonder all the way home how this little package can kill you. And wonder why she was sending me to get them if they were so dangerous!

I used to believe that when people smoked they must be blowing on then end, which was why it glowed red. Someone even gave me a pipe at some point and I tried blowing into that. I couldn't work out why anyone bothered it didn't seem to do anything.

A friend of mine swears that he thought that the sign on cigarette machines reading "No sales to minors" was there because people who work in a mine weren't allowed to smoke, because all the gas down in the mines would blow up.
