It's my personal one & it was happened in my 8th age. You can feel this as a normal story but when ever I remember this it will make me to laugh always.
My Dad is a chain-smoker. Since my childhood I loved the style of his smoking . But my mom always hate(d) his hobby & argued around million times with my dad to leave that hobby . One day evening when I returned from school, I have seen the cigarette pack in my dad's shirt which was put in anchor in hall, well nobody in hall. I reduced one from that pack & ran to back garden which was empty. Oh Idiot, I forgot the match-box. Then I went to kitchen found that & back to garden. Even I didn't know how to smoke a cigar . I just lighted the cigar & put in my mouth but I didn't know how to continue that. Suddenly I got an idea, previous day I was played with bubbles help of soap water with straw. So I tried to blew forward from the cigar like Blow out the candles in birthday.Hmm.. Nothing happened . Then tried some times but nothing as same as previous one. Then I remembered my dad's style. Got it.. Like drinking cool drinks by straw . So I tried that way. It was worked but... Almost I finished a 1/4 of cigar with a single puff. I felt that 1/4 went in to my lung . I was @ terrible situation & coughed continuously almost for 15-20 minutes & almost died . I didn't know what to do next. Then I found a tub with full water. I just pushed my face into that for a minute or two. It made me cried . Then I went to bathroom, brushed & taken bath, went to dressing room....
[After some time]
I was watching some Hindi movie in DD channel in TV but without listening. I hated cigar @ first time . I tried to sleep at early. But the incident remembered my mom's arguments with dad about cigar. While thinking after some time I got sleep . Still Her words hearing in my ears & I'm just following her way till my death. That's my first & last time I have smoked. BTW I never touched Drinks too.
My kind request Please quit your smoking at least for your mom, better half & your kids.

I started smoking because I was a very stupid 14 year old kid, unaware of the consequences and attracted by the forbidden. I'm really glad that didn't get to you.
Now it's a very difficult thing to quit smoking, just spending a day without one makes me a different and worse person. Many people say they don't understand how someone educated like me could be smoking. They always tell me to stop.
1 - The problem is, when I started, I wasn't educated enough. 2 - Once a addicted, it does not depend on the education anymore.
I really appreciate your iniciative. Hopefully, I'll manage to quit sometime.
