Growing up my mom was married to a guy who had a daughter much older than i was. Both my mom and my step dad smoked, and one day i asked my "older sister" why people smoked. She told me it was because they drank the wine during church. I believed this till i was probably 12.

My mom used to smoke,and I'd see her ash into the ash tray. One day I got curious and asked her if there was a button on the cigarette that makes the ash fall off. She told me yes but you can't see it. I believed this till about age 10!

When I was about 3, me and my grandparents took a train trip through Canada. We were sitting in about the middle of the train car and the front of the car was the smoking area. I looked up and saw smoke and stood up screaming :The train is on fire! The train is on fire!" Boy did that get a laugh. The college girls put out their cigs and asked me to join them. So I played Barbies with them for a few hours :)

I used to believe that people who resolved to quit smoking "cold turkey" as a New Year's resolution chose the timing because of all the cold turkey left over from Christmas.

My friend used to tell me that if you crossed a cigarrete lying on the road, you will become a smoker when you get older. And they only way to prevent it, is to spit on the cigarrete you cross.

I still remember spitting on the road whenever I stepped over a cigarrete. I hated becoming a smoker.

I used to think the cigarettes that had speckly brown butts instead of white ones had extra salty flavoring on them, like pretzels or something.

When I was young, one day, my father was smoking, and I realized maybe the fire is not only burning on the cigar but also burning in my father's brain, because the smoke coming out from my father's nostrils. So I splash a glass of water on my father's head. My father is so surprised that he couldn't believe what I did. And finally, he beat me resolutely...

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.

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!

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.

No one in my household smoked when I was little, but when my aunts and uncles would come over at Christmas, they would smoke in the house. I thought that they ate the cigarette because they were putting it up to their mouths and it got shorter and shorter. I guess I never considered the smoke they blew out!!!

When I was little, all the grownups smoked. My uncle told me that when the cigarrette burned down to the filter, it would explode. I hung around waiting for this to happen, but it never did.

When I was younger I thought secondhand smoking was when you couldn't afford your own cigarettes so you bummed them off of someone else...

When I was about 2 years old, I not only believed that my father ate the cigarettes he smoked, but I also decided to do so myself. As you can imagine, eating tobacco is very harmful to a toddler, and this whole fiasco resulted in a trip to the hospital and a stomack pumping.
