Yeah, my coworker's husband only smokes when he goes to the bar.

Occasional smokers are kind of a rare breed - I don't know how they do it, but they do exist!

oddly enough, i only smoke when two factors come into play - i'm drunk, and i'm with the soccer team.....if i'm drunk with other friends the ciggies don't even cross my mind....and one ciggarette and i'm toast - totally light headed and dizzy, two would kill me :P

yeah...I wish I could smoke occaisionally... I quit about a month and a half ago, and it's going o.k....but I get so jealous of people of who smoke. I loved smoking, ...it just got in the way of breathing...so I thought I should stop...


Nobody likes a quitter.

Yes its true because I was one. I didnt smoke at work or during the day or at home. I would have one when out with friends on the weekend or maybe mid week after meal and that was it. A single packet would last me months. The only other time I smoked was when there have been was an extremely emotional upsetting event in my life [ a family death]. And it helped. I would rather have the odd cigarette to deal with extreme stress/sorry or emotional upheaval than to drink at the time. But on other occassions I simply dont think about it. So its true, but from my experience its not that common, which is why it is usually met with sceptiscism

My father smoked all his life but my mother didnt. Married for 52 years. My dad had to stop 14 years ago. However once or twice a year she might join him out the back porch and have one with him. It was very rare. I kind of liken it to non-smoking males who enjoy a cigar at Christmas or special events.

No Im not saying its a good thing before all the anti smokers start up - Im simply answering your question is it possible to be an occassional smoker

To Hambone about reactions. - there are all sorts of different types of cigarettes with lower levels of nicotines and filters. Yes if I had an unfiltered full strength Camel I would probably puke. As would many people. Not that it matters but for the sake of topic, if you were going to have a cigarette you would go for the lightest available. Here in Australia that is 1mg of nicotine.

I had a girlfriend who only smoked when she had a drink. This was fine....until she became an alcoholic.

That's exactly it for me. As I have recently quit also.....they should have a choice of Trying to Quit or Gave it up....cuz if you are a former smoker and fall off the wagon once in awhile...them to give an honest answer you would be an occassional smoker...and if you put no, but you snuck a smoke in...you could be considered a BSer...

Dani only smokes occasionally....which to me means a pack lasts her a few days. Hell, sometimes I have two going at once. I used to live with a chic that would maybe just smoke one or two when we partied....and sometimes just take a puff off mine after sex.

So, yes. Some people smoke occasionally.

We are all gonna die one day anyhow, right?

so sorry if that seems insensitive, the way I figure it fun is inversely related to longevity, if someone has fun smoking then i say do it, otherwise, don't...

...Sure I know plenty of occasional smokers.

Well now, Ms PL, in Chuck's defense, may I say, that most likely a 10 yr old post is probably falling apart and needs to be dug up.? LOL

OT, the answer is yes. Yes it's possible, Yes, a person can have a smoke while diggin' up old posts. Or not.

I smoke something else occasionally. Once or twice a month. So perhaps the question "occasionally" isn't about tobacco.

My favorite is my coworker who will tell you she hasn't smoked in 20 years. Although she regularly bums a smoke from the guy that sits next to me when she is stressed. Apparently if don't buy them for yourself you are a non-smoker.

Same here although it would probably depend on how often drink.
