Sorry, just read this thread, coming in late. Interesting to see the split of opinions. I used to smoke american spirits, because that's what the cool kids did. Couldn't tell you the last time I smoked a cigarette. Now I either feel like shit, or get a dumb buzz and then feel like shit. I smoke cigars on occasion, pretty much just when they're offered to me. I don't pretend to have a well-developed smoke palate. My parents both smoked until the late 90s, my father still does. When my younger sibs catch him, you'd think he'd committed treason. They're disgusted. They've even cried. The anti-smoking sentiment in this country is incredibly strong... I'm split on smoking bans. I dislike smelling like smoke, but I like freedom. People who occasionally smoke cigarettes usually don't get the cool points.
