Attention Smokers

Is it possible for some people to not be addicted to smoking?
I occasionally smoke once in a while. How easy is it to get addicted?

Re: Attention Smokers

Its definitely possible to smoke and not get addicted. To know if your addicted or not just think about this: Are you smoking because you like the way it feels/tastes/smells, or out of habit. If its habit, then its possible (and likely) you're addicted.

Re: Attention Smokers

At this point I know I'm not addicted. Cause last time I smoked was 6 months ago.
I guess what I'm trying to ask is how long/intensity does a person needs to continued smoking to become addicted. Like a pack a month would that ever cause addiction?

Re: Attention Smokers

It depends on the person and a million other factors. Pretty much if you smoke in any regular manner it will increase your chances in getting addicted. I smoked in high school for a couple years, mostly just going to and from work and on work breaks, but when i quit I simply stopped because I didn't want to anymore and didn't have any problem quitting. Was I addicted? In my opinion no. I only did it because I liked the feeling, it was a nice way to relieve stress, but I was never like jones'ing for one, nor would get like irritable if I didn't have one. It really just depends.

Even though I miss it sometimes, I know its just so bad for you and don't do it anymore, or if I do, its like one or two cigarettes a year bumming one from a friend.

I'm the same way. I smoke about a pack a month, but right now I haven't had a cigarette in 4 days and I don't want one whatsoever. I've never been addicted to any drugs either, except for opiates.
