I smoke on occasion, but have never become addicted.

Like others here, I enjoy the occasional cigar -- I also have taken up the pipe, as it provides a cooler, cleaner smoke than many other methods. It also allows me to smoke just the amount of tobacco I wish, since pipes go out very quickly if not tended -- so if I just want a few puffs, I can do that without waste.

I smoke only socially, and until recently only outdoors. This means that I only smoke when it's warm out -- glad I'm not addicted, or the Minnesota winters would be a killer... Other than outside, I smoke once a month when I meet with a writer's club: they all smoke cigars, and I find it intollerable unless I join them. This is analogous to listening to someone else eat cereal: it's only bothersome if you aren't eating. :)

I support smoking bans in restaurants: I'd rather taste my food than my neighbors sidestream smoke. However, the smoking ban in bars is amusing -- you can sit on a stool and kill your liver, but don't dare light up a smoke! (Of course, I know it's for the employees). I don't typically smoke in bars anyway, for most have voluntary bans on cigar and pipe use -- so it doesn't affect me; still funny though. :-P
