Well, I did try smoking cigarettes, cigar and cloves. None of them stuck. Out of them all, I liked the cloves the best and did smoke it a bit through the first year of college with a group of friends but after returning for my second year, I stopped smoking cloves. Never smoked anything else since. I tried many other stuff but none of them bit me. The only thing I am addicted to is sweets. I believe it is hereditary. I was adopted as a baby and when I met my bio dad, he informed me that my mother was an addict and smoked like a chimney. I never told my boys about her and viola. Both started smoking early in their high school years and are still smoking today. They told me they just picked up the butts from friends and started smoking as if they were supposed to. Nobody in my adoptive family nor my husband’s family smoked. Just them. Then I found out my bio mother smoked. Definitely hereditary. My bio-dad also tried during his college years but nothing ever stuck – just like me. He also has a sweet tooth – like me. Genetics is fascinating especially when you are adopted and unknowingly acquired habits of the biological family. Well, Liz here has parents who don’t smoke. Hopefully, that will work in her favor.
