Are You a Social Smoker

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. Do I smoke when I drink alcohol?
  2. Do I smoke with a coffee?
  3. Do most of my friends smoke, and do I smoke with them?
  4. Do I smoke while I'm waiting for something/someone?
  5. Do I buy/split a pack of cigarettes with my friends?
  6. Have I smoked 100 cigarettes or more?
  7. Do I smoke within 30 minutes of waking up?
  8. Do I smoke daily?
  9. Do I have cravings if I haven't smoked in a while?

If you answered yes to one or more of questions 1–5, you are probably a social smoker and could very likely become addicted to nicotine. Remember—a social smoker is still a smoker!

If you answered yes to one or more of questions 6–9, you are a regular smoker and you're probably addicted to nicotine.
