A collection from my students:
Cigarettes are a part of my identity
Something to do with my hands
My cigarette is my best friend
Something to pass the time
Smoking helps me to think
It might be painful to quit
It looks good in my hand
To keep old friendships
Something to touch
Being experienced
Being grown up
A big f__k you
Being tough
Self image
Adventure
Important
Attractive
Security
Identity
Reward
Macho
Love
To handle stress
Companionship
Rebelliousness
Independence
Peer pressure
It calms me
Masculinity
Excitement
Femininity
Relaxation
Reliability
Power
Fun
I like the taste
I enjoy smoking
I’m afraid to stop
To satisfy boredom
My partner smokes
Something to suck on
To keep my relationship
Something I can manipulate
I smoke instead of eating so much
