While I agree with some of the previous replies that 10 is "unacceptably" young for parental sanctioned smoking, I understand that our perspectives are shaped by our own experiences. From earlier posts, it seems that MarlboroRedGuy started smoking at 9 and did so with the assistance of an adult family member. Having started at 12 myself, (with plenty of company at the time) I've always assumed that many 12 year-olds would enjoy it just like I had. Although smoking at 12 was only marginally socially acceptable in the 80's when I started, (and much less so today) it was fairly common. So as I said, I think MarlboroRedGuy is just drawing from his own personal experience. I think we're all here to share our experiences. I'm certainly not here to judge anyone.
