Come on mumsnet, how many of us are smokers? and a little about yourself, age, disposable income, history of drug/alcohol -abuse- use yadda yadda yadda...

Do you smoke around DC?

None smoker. Never even tried it.
Never done drugs.
Live comfortably. Happy with my lot.

Only when I'm on fire.

Did for a few years - mostly at work because I didn't feel the need when on holiday, then dropped it as soon as I realised I was pregnant.

Tried weed once. Boring.

hollinhurst84 Wed 20-Jul-16 00:23:33

Bunch of weird questions there. It's like one of those questionnaires which ask if you've ever felt like killing yourself amongst what is your favourite jam.

PlumDogMillionaire Wed 20-Jul-16 00:29:09

I would say they are factors relevant to smoking, aren't they?

PlumDogMillionaire Wed 20-Jul-16 00:32:00

Do we need to leave saliva for a DNA test or will fingerprints be enough?

Go easy on op just a curious mumsnetter wishing to get to know her fellow mums a bit better

Have never smoked. Could never wrap my head around people spending their money on making themselves smelly and antisocial.

Age: 35
Disposable income: loadsa money
History of drug/alcohol abuse: none existent.

Well done hollin ! None smoker, tried it as a teenager but hated it thankfully.

PlumDogMillionaire Wed 20-Jul-16 00:42:39

Thanks lobster!

its interesting the social/antisocial aspect - I know a lot of people smoke for the sociable aspect like fag breaks at work and smoking areas at pubs and bars

PlumDogMillionaire Wed 20-Jul-16 00:43:10

yes second that, good on you hollin

MarcelineTheVampire Wed 20-Jul-16 00:43:33

I do- not around DC though. Desperately need to quit as I do hate it but started again after DC as I needed a fag break once in a while.

Live comfortably and within my means.

Doinmummy Wed 20-Jul-16 00:43:38

52 , single parent , certainly not financially loaded , started when I was 35 (stupid idiot) gave up once for nearly a year , started again during a very stressful time. Hate it .

Ilovemygsd Wed 20-Jul-16 00:45:48

30, smoked 20/25 a day from young teenager until 18mth ago. Now I'm over a stone fatter, have occasional cig if I've had a drink. And a pack of 20 on my birthday... I miss smoking. Quit for health and money

Doinmummy Wed 20-Jul-16 00:46:09

It actually takes real commitment to become hooked on fags ! I remember the first one I had was foul, made me all dizzy and sicky so why the hell did I persevere ?confusedconfusedconfused

CakeNinja Wed 20-Jul-16 00:46:31

YABVVVU stamps out fag

I'm 31, smoke 20 , sometimes 30 over a week (roughly between 3-4 a day although more when I go out) plenty of disposable income, have taken drugs although wouldn't touch any nowadays.
I have 3 DC and have never smoked in the house, they have rarely seen my smoke because I tend to only do so in the evenings although they have seen me do so occasionally.
I'm not proud of smoking, although I admit to loving it. I definitely welcome how unsociable it's becoming because I wouldn't like mine to start. Hypocrite, me?! Never!

EverySongbirdSays Wed 20-Jul-16 00:48:50

35, finally managed to quit last year, regret ever starting,

Don't really drink, maybe a glass of wine once a month, last got drunk about 3 years ago.

Have done weed approx 3 times

PlumDogMillionaire Wed 20-Jul-16 00:49:03

it's so interesting to hear your situations, agreed cake - wouldn't want mine to start so maybe it's time to lead by example... Bring on the weight gain haha confused

Ellieboolou27 Wed 20-Jul-16 00:50:58

Yes, not around dc, live comfortably aged 38,no history of drug abuse but did try weed in my teens.

CatsTats Wed 20-Jul-16 00:53:55

I do, not around dc though. Stopped when I was pregnant both times then stupidly started again. I smoke outside, never done drugs and I drink about twice a year.
