Default When you started smoking did you experience FIRE

About one quarter of young people experience
the FIRE (First-Inhalation-Relaxation-
Experience), a sensation of relaxation
the first time they inhale from a
cigarette, and this sensation predicts continued
smoking. FIRE is the strongest
predictor of the progression to the loss of
autonomy and a diagnosis of tobacco dependence.
One study demonstrated that
91% of those with the FIRE
subsequently lost autonomy. FIRE appears
to be a symptom of the neurological
events that trigger addiction with the
first cigarette.

How about your first time smoking. Did you experience the FIRE?

I did and I guess the theory proves true with me - still loving it 21 years later.

I did. That was six years ago. I have been puffing away ever since.

Yes - I definitely experienced this - I searched and found a paper on FIRE and realized I was hooked much sooner than I thought I was, but as the article stated, the time between lighting up was cut in 1/2 over time to where I needed several cigarettes a day to maintain my sanity - Initially a person could actually be completely hooked from the first puff but not have a craving for days, over time, those cravings come closer and closer together, hence, the cutting in 1/2 discussed in the article the time that a smoker is able to feel normal between cigarettes - so, it's definitely an interesting idea and I believe it to be real - the article also stated that once a smoker, your brain is never the same, pretty much once addicted, always addicted.

I didnít experience any coughing or nausea with my first few cigarettes. As a matter of fact, my first drag went down easily. My cravings started after one week of smoking every day. Overall, I took to smoking quickly and easily. Iím still smoking daily after six years. I regret not having started sooner. The fire theory can explain why I got hooked as quickly as I did.

If all that means did I enjoy my first cigarette then yes. It was an ultra light menthol 100, and I smoked the whole thing. Second cigarette happened the same day, and opened up my first pack that week (Marlboro Lights, what I always wanted to smoke). But that ultra light made it easy, like cold water but breathing it.

The very first time I tried a cigarette and felt the effects of the smoke as it traveled throughout my body. It was as if my body responded immediately, filling me with a sense of relaxing euphoria. I couldn't wait to feel that same reaction again and again!
So many years later, my cigarettes are giving me the same enjoyment and pleasure. From that very first cigarette, I knew right away that I was destined to be a smoker!

That would certainly explain a lot for me. By number 3, I was already there. And I was expecting it would be difficult; in reality it was effortless.
