Default How long before lighting up again?

Just wondering how long most of you go between finishing one cigarette before lighting up another. When I can smoke, I only go about 5-10 minutes between cigarettes.

About 3 hours is as long as I can go. If the smoking light is on though, about 20-30 minutes casually between cigarettes , except morning coffee which is pure chain smoking for an hour. Newport Kings or 100's.

I try to avoid chainsmoking. In my experience, lighting up another cigarette immediately after finishing one makes the second cigarette much less enjoyable, with some exceptions. Those exceptions are,

1) Drinking. Once you're nice and tipsy, and particularly if you're drunk, it can be hard not to chainsmoke (at least for me). Each and every cigarette is about as satisfying as the first, regardless of how quickly you smoke one after another.

2) Heavy stress. Chainsmoking two or three cigarettes when under particularly heavy stress can be relieving. However, unlike above, I still find the "taste," and "experience," of subsequent cigarettes to be much less enjoyable than the first, but the calming effect can remain throughout.

3) Going a long time without a cigarette. This doesn't happen for me very often, as I don't make it a secret that I smoke, but if I have to go a while without a cigarette for some reason (i.e., 24 hours or close to 24 hours at least), I will probably chainsmoke at least two cigarettes as soon as I'm able to smoke. It's strange, because although I smoke around a pack a day, I've gone over 24 hours -- close to 48 hours -- without a cigarette and without having irresistible urges to smoke. If I think on it long enough, it's hard, but I can usually manage that window of time. As soon as I know I'm close to being able to finally have a cigarette, though, the anticipation and eagerness is overwhelming and five minutes can seem like hours, so I'll immediately light up ASAP and probably follow it with another cigarette immediately.

4) Early morning, particularly work commutes. It takes me about 30 minutes to get to my office each morning, but that is often extended due to traffic, sometimes taking me 45 minutes and in somewhat rare cases, an hour if there's a wreck or something. If my commute ends up taking longer than 30 minutes, I'll sometimes smoke two or three cigarettes in relatively quick succession. However, I've somewhat circumvented this the past couple years, as I always have a cigar or two on hand. If I hit major traffic and know it's going to be damn near an hour before I get to the office, I'll forego my morning cigarettes and light up a nice cigar instead. Get my nicotine fix and have something to pass the time while being stuck in traffic.

At work they frown upon taking too many smoke breaks so usually once every two hours or so. At university after every class so about once an hour. When I am free I smoke every 20-30 minutes so it really depends on the situation.
Last summer a couple of friends and I went on a two week holiday to Crete and I ended up smoking two packs a day at least, boozing and partying all the time really lets you go all out.

A pretty typical list, IMO.
