Ultimately after postponing this post for abt a semester , i think i am now ready to write the post . I was afraid abt what people will think about me after i write this post … but know to think abt it i dont give a damn , and i am really cool being a smoker and as Skp said “If you smoke you will get lung cancer unless u rant abt it ” .So here goes :-
When i was in 6th-7th i used to think why people are so crazy for gettin some smoke out of their mouth . And me being really “Sudhrahua”-types believed that i would never get into such things . Then when i was in 10th , had the same thinking but also came to know why people actually do it , now i had really decided that i wont even touch it . But one fine day , during my vacation after AIEEE and IIT , my friend called me up and asked me whether i could accompany him to Mehdipatnam . I agreed and we reached Mpatnam , there we bought some veggies etc . After that we went to a Pani-Puri bandi and after that he went to the pan shop got two Gold flakes ( chota ) , and asked me to try it . I refused instantly .
Friend:- “U are a bitch !! Mummy ka ladla beta hai tu , ja bournvita pi ” ( you are mamas boy go drink bournvita)
Me:- ” Y are u angry ,man ?? I will never touch that stuff”
Friend:-”Meri dosti ke liye ek puff maar le phir dekh lena” ( Smoke a single puff for sake of my friendship ? )
After this senti dialouge i had to smoke a puff , and u guys wont belive it i didnt choke . And no smoke came out , i was dissapointed . I tried again and again , but all in vain . Alas i finished the whole cig , i didnt feel anythin and thought that the whole ciggrate thing was crap .
Semester 3 : Same place , Mehdipatnam bus stop , this time with a college friend . After completing our shopping , we were waitin at the bustop and suddenly ,
Friend:- ” Did u ever try cig ?? “
Me:- ” Nopes man ! Dont wanna try either” ( i lied )
Friend:- ” I have started smokin , my friend introduced this lovely thing to me durin summer , wanna try one ?? “
He gave me a lighted cig ( i didnt know how to light a cig then ) , i tried smokin and he was amazed that i didn’t choke . I told him that i am not feeling any different. Then he asked me to take the smoke into the lungs and keep it there for a moment . I did that for some puffs and i was feeling a bit dizzy , but i really like it . After that there was no looking back . I promised my self that i wont smoke more than 2 ciggs/week . But then the rate increased from 2/week-> 4/week to 1/day . And i was smoking a cigg daily , and during some night out 4-5/day. I on my part have never forced anyone to smoke and neither will i commit such a thing .
Some interesting things which i experienced :-
1. I had once smoked around 10 suttas and i was feeling Smokey . My lips were dry and the taste of everything changed to something carbonish . But still i didn’t get high i dunno why .
2.I smoked 2 ciggrates in a closed bathroom , and when i got out i was barely able to walk .
3. I tried the traditional beedi , i smoked arnd 6-7 beedi’s in one day . The taste sux though
4. I tried out cigar once , didnt have a good experince , i nearly vommited .
5. I have tried Marlbora , wills (classic|regular|mint| .. ) and ofcourse the most famous Gold flake .
But frankly speakin 1cigg/day is way under control , even then i left sutta after december and then now i rarely smoke . Nowadays i smoke abt 2-3 ciggs/month . Cool aint it .
I wrote this post so that next time some batch-mate sees me smokin i wont be afraid to do so and yeah as skp said i dont want to have a lung cancer .
lastly i want to say HOLD THE CIGARRETE DONT LET IT HOLD U ( by SMR ).
