Look, you're going to do whatever you want to do with your life, but take it from us ex-smokers, smoking is stupid. I even still have a cigarette, from time to time, and I can still tell you that I'm complete idiot for doing it
I also have friends who smoke, and they've pretty much all told me, in no uncertain terms, that if they ever had children, they would admonish them as much as humanly possible to simply never start
. Other friends I've had stopped when their children were born, understanding that there was no way to do that, while still smoking, themselves.
