I smoked just occasionally when I was in college. I always went for the menthol kind because they tasted better. I also liked the ones marketed to women, like Eve and Virginia Slims. It would take me a couple of months to get through a pack -- that's how infrequent it was. I never got hooked, thank goodness.
I have thought about trying the e-cigarettes, since you can get them without nicotine and they produce water vapor. But the initial kits are kind of expensive and so are the refills. I might go to one of those "vaping" places and see how I like it.
