When I was younger I beleived that when you grew up, you smoked (probably because all of the adult around me did). I used to worry that I wouldn't know how to do it or that I wouldn't know how to hold a cigarette!
I was told that there is nothing good about smoking tobacco. Thus, it did not appear to me that smoking mildly relaxes and alters mood, neither did I know about the addictive potential. Thus, I thought that people smoke because they either do not know that it is bad for you, or alternatively that they are inherently evil, and consequently do things that are bad.
I used to beleive that intead of sucking on chewing tobacco, I beleived you stuffed it up your nose lol XD The reason for me beleiving that is lost to time.
Whenever I saw somebody smoking I just assumed that they were eating a Lollypop.
When I was about 9, I read in a book (the Ramona Quimby books for those who remember those) about a girl who in order to get her dad to stop smoking made all these signs describing the dangers of smoking (such as fires, black lungs, etc) and put them all over the house. I thought I could do that with my parents since they both smoked. I put signs on their bedroom door, under my dad's razor, and in their bathrobe pockets. All these years later I never found out what they thought about all that, but it didn't work since they both still smoke 2-3 packs a day.
My Dad is a chain smoker and he used to do a lot of fishing, using maggots as bait. I used to think that his yellow smokers fingers were from picking up the maggots and putting them on the hook!
when i was younger, i thought that when you smoked you just held it in your mouth. i assumed that the taste and smell were what people liked. i had no idea about nicotine. haha i believed this untill one day when i was "smoking" and my older friend corrected me...
one day i saw beetlejuice the movie, and the lady smokes through her throat or something like that so then i thought that when you smoked you smoked through your throat...
Me and my sister used to think that only men could smoke and one day we were at the grocery store and we were SO appalled when we saw a lady smoking.
I believed that only well-off people could buy cigarettes, and poor people who smoked spent their time scouring the streets for cigarette butts to get a couple of drags from
I used to believe that people who smoked had a chimney in there throught and that is how they produced the smoke!
I used to think that dope fiends smoked the glue like stuff sold in model shops, after it had dried into a hard mass.
When I was little, about six or seven, my best girlfriend and I would pick up cigarette butts off the ground and if they had lipstick on them, we would light them and smoke them, believing that women didn't have germs but men did so the lipstick meant they were safe.
I only ever saw men smoke, so I thought that only men smoked.
When i was a kid, I used to believe cigarette smoke could make you fly.
I used to think that inside a cigarette there are four or five filters in a row that are burnt when smoking. (The tobacco shelfs at shops had transparent bags of filters for roll-your-own cigarettes.) I used to think that people roll their own cigarettes so that they can adjust the lenght of the cigarette by choosing how many filters they use.
For some reason, I thought that all people who smoked pipes were ugly and very bad (like child-killer bad). Maybe this was instilled by movies? Not sure, but it was scary.
I used to believe that when you could smoke on a cigarette even if the smoke didn't come out. only experienced smokers knew how to make the smoke come out, and the people who let the cigarette hang out of their mouth weren't experienced enough. I never knew why they put fire to it, and i never made the connection that that was where the smoke came from. I learned that when I was about seven
i used to think that only men smoked (probably cos my dad does but mum doesn't and never has). this made me think that if a women ever did smoke she would go to hell (i also used to be a strong believer in heaven and hell and was scared beyond changing my pants that i would go to hell if i did even one thing naughty) anyway when i went to my mums friends house once i saw her smoking (i was about 5 at the time) so i just said 'No!!! you're going to go to hell when u die!' mum and her friend laughed at me and being 17 myself now i realise that women can smoke. i smoke myself as well, and im not that worried about going to hell anymore!
I used to believe it was necessary to blow to smoke a cigarett.
