Turn On or Turn Off? Guys That Smoke

I've never been all that into smoking. Not only is it addictive, hard to quit, unhealthy and proven to cause conditions such as lung cancer and asthma, I can't stand a smoker's stale breath. Who wants to kiss that? That's why I think it's such a turn off to see a guy light up a cigarette.


That's just my opinion though. What do you think about guys who smoke? Is it a turn on or a turn off?

Hmm, I smoke although not as much as I used to. My first couple bf's were smokers (I didn't smoke then) and it never bothered me. I kinda associated it with the whole bad boy image @ the time. It's not really a turn on for me now but it doesn't bug me. I hate smoke indoors though and I don't let anyone smoke around my son so if a guy insisted on lighting up inside or around him he'd be gone.

A bit of both for me first bf was a smoker and while I didn't like the smell, I still associated it with the arousal I felt when I kissed him and so for a while afterwards I would get turned-on by the smell of smoke, even though i hated it , or even just watching a guy light up.

Huge HUGE turn off, its a deal breaker with me. My father and grandfather both died of lung cancer because they smoked. Nothing sexy about seeing a man reduced to bones with IV's hooked up looking at his wife and four daughters wishing he had just put that cigarette down, wishing he could walk them down the aisle one day, wishing just one more minute.........

Being a smoker is a dating requirement for me. As is being eastern european, but to a lesser extent.

Huge turn off. Plus, I have some lung issues, so I could never live with a smoker again (I say again, because my mom smoked while I was growing up...possibly why I have some lung issues today!)

Definite turn-off. Yellow teeth, bad breath, shortened lifespan, increased chances of racking up the medical bills when he gets older, not to mention air pollution... smokers are way, way more trouble than they're worth.

Haha, everytime I went to his house, I made my last boyfriend brush his teeth before I'd let his mouth anywhere near me xD Smoking is gross -- but I'm alright with it as a once-or-twice-a-month stress reducer.

I have quit for a while now, and I wouldn't want to date someone who smokes just because I wouldn't want to be around it due to temptation! But I don't judge anyone who wants to do it...

It's my number one turn off. A deal breaker to be sure. My current beau used to smoke, but quit the day he met me and has never gone back.

Viewing several lung cancer surgeries made it a deal-breaker for me to even be associated with people who smoke. Sorry, it's my air too and polluted enough as it is.

A bit of both. My first kiss was with a smoker, and it was a bloody amazing kiss and I remember him smelling a bit smoky (and I know this sounds disgusting) but he tasted a bit smoky, if that's possible to be a positive thing - so I suppose the fond memories are kind of a turn on. But, the gross teeth and hands are definitely a turn off.

Gross! Why would I want to be with someone who wasted so much money and didn't care about their health? That's just dumb.

I don't mind the smoking. I'm always around someone that's smoking. I've never kissed a smoker though. Not a cigarette smoker anyway.

Omg my guy smokes... and He hid it from me from months.... then I guess one night he forgot to hide it and I tried to bribe him to quick smoking.... needless to say all the kisses in the world didn't change his mind... He thinks its sexy... and that he looks like James Dean.... He wishes!

its mostly a turn off. i don't mind the guy who has the occasional cigarette when drinking or when really stressed- i've been known to do the same. i don't want to date a chain smoker. that being said- i wouldn't not date a guy who smoked, if he had everything else going for him- but i would make it clear before i begin a serious relationship that its a habit that needs to be quit!
