Do you think that if you have family that smoke that you are more likely to smoke yourself? I find that addiction to tobacco does tend to run in families. This could be a genetic predisposition to addiction, or it could be as a result of enviorment. My whole family smoked growing up, and when I got older it seemed to be almost second nature to me. Smoking for me has always been very comforting in times of stress. However, I know many people who do not smoke because they hated it when their family members smoked. What is your opinion based on your personal experiences?
