Default When you're with other smokers

Do you feel the need to keep up with them? Say you're out drinking with some friends and one of them lights up, do you join them right away, even if you're not craving one yet or do you wait for a craving to hit?

I remember when I came to terms with me being a smoker and I'd go out, I'd light up whenever someone else did, kinda to prove that I was a smoker. I think those nights definitely helped in increasing my daily intake.

Nowadays, I feel people are the ones lighting up whenever I light up. Trying to stay up to par with me.

Yes Jason, to see someone smoke definitely triggers me to light up myself. And as heavy smokers I think we both have seen the same change. Where 6 years ago I would follow the example of someone else, now it is almost always the other way around. It happened when I ended up with a social smoking flatmate during the first Covid episode, did not take too long for him to discover the pleasure of smoking first thing in the morning, and when I now meet someone for a coffee to go or drink in the park, I see the same thing, I have a positive influence on the more hesitant smokers...

Not yet had that privilege this time round, hopefully with one of my co workers when we get back to the office.

I don't think it's a conscious thing for me, but if I'm around other smokers, I do smoke more.

Seeing others smoke is a instant trigger. When my wife lights up I light up and when I light up my wife lights up.

I am a heavy smoker, so being around other smokers doesn't have much of an effect on how much I smoke. But I agree that seeing others smoking is definitely a trigger for most smokers to light up more frequently. For some reason it is almost impossible for most smokers to see someone else smoking and not have an urge to light up themselves.

Definitely but it is not a conscious thing, seeing people light up makes me do the same.

Seeing someone spark up or smelling smoke is a massive trigger for me to spark up even if I’ve just had one

Oh yes, I might have just crushed out my previous smoke but when somebody near me lights up I automatically also reach for my cigarettes and light one.
