Is smoking really a turn off?
What Girls Said 67
Deal breaker. I can't date a smoker. It's bad for the person, for everyone around them aka second hand smoke, the environment, and pets. I always have pets and studies show higher chance of them developing cancer if humans smoke near them. Plus, have you ever been near them? They're always trying to get a smoke break, it's so annoying especially at work.
Sorry but complete turn off and deal breaker.
I find it gross and disgusting to do on the regular. I would only date a occasional smoker like myself. I have to amit as much as a stupid, unhealthy habit it is to have I do find something sexy about a good looking man taking a puff on a cigarette, I just don't why
It is a dirty habit and just plain gross. Your clothes smell like smoke, your car and your house do too. Your teeth are yellow and your breath smells like you just sucked ass. Used to be normal in old movies to be seen smoking, but now it is seen as something people of low intelligence and poor people do.
I don't care about the act of smoking, unless you're doing it in the presence of a child or while you're pregnant. I don't mind kissing people who smoke either.
But I don't think I'd marry someone who smoked as I don't want them to die from lung cancer.
Yeah, smoking is a no for me. I don't want to kiss someone with tobacco breath, I don't want to walk around secondhand smoking and maybe even contract lung cancer because of it, I don't want go to my house smelling like smoke or even have my house reak of smoke because i'm always hanging around someone who reaks of cigarettes.
I don't like weed but am fine with cigarettes and find it pretty sexy on the right guy (I also have enjoyed smoking in the past)
100% would not date or even hook up with someone who smoked. It’s awful for them, and for me to be around, if it ended up working out I wouldn’t want to raise my kids in a smoking household.
It is a turn off considering you can always smell it on them, especially when intimate.
I couldn't be with a smoker.
Honestly couldn’t careless. I like the smell and it’s there life not mine. More people I know vape which is another thing all on it’s own. Personally I’ve contemplated smoking to be able to deal with some issues rather then drinking or drugs which a lot of my friends use. Honestly I feel everyone has a different reason for smoking or not but as long as it’s not harming you, I don’t see why it’s a huge problem
Turn off. Can't kiss someone with a breath like that.
If he doesn't smoke that much it wouldn't be a big turn off, but if he does and he always smells like cigarettes and smokes around me (which cause me terrible migraines 😭) then yes, it really is a turn off
I don't care and I have asma. As long as they are not smoking all the damn time or in my face all rude... I'm like meh
It's absolutely filthy, thoroughly disgusting and a complete and utter turn off.
Being the daughter of a heavy smoker and being the ex smoker myself. It is a turn off. I don't really appreciate people who take pride in smoking.
Someone who is purposely destroying his health is a deal breaker to me. I can't handle the awful smell as well. It's a big turn off. It's disgusting and weak.
It's a major turn off. Not only does it stink, but it is bad for your health and even worse for the people around you.
I used to smoke myself and still occasionally do. I´ve had guys tell me they don´t like it so I made an effort to not constantly smoke around them and have some mint/wash my hands before we kiss. But None of them were like "I didn´t know you smoked, now leave"
I think on others it can look very attractive but close up it´s probably not the greatest thing. I would not mind it but if someone smelled like cigs all over it would be a turnoff just because it screams bad hygiene in general. And I would not want to be in a relationship with someone who smokes a lot but just so I don´t start again.
It is to me. It's gross and shows that you don't take care of your body.
Chewing tobacco, cigars, pipes, etc, is all gross and off putting as well.
It is a turn off for most because it smells rotten and you are inhaling cancer ☺️
They are drugs. No one want a junky 👀 sorry. There are legal only because the tobacco industry is huge. It’s been around for ages and the government isn’t trying to lose out on money.
Only immature people actually think smoking is a cool thing. It isn’t positive and there are literally no benefits. Unless you count stress relief as a benefit, but that’s why it’s better to smoke weed because it actually has healing properties and does more good than harm. But that’s just my opinion
If they smoke regularly, absolutely. It makes me personally think they're a bad decision maker and don't think about consequences. Plus it smells terrible, costs money, and impacts relationships with having to take time off to smoke
Hell no. I wouldn’t want to be with someone who can’t say no to something that will kill him.
Yes, It is. It's poison, not only it makes you look ugly, also damages your entire body and slowly kills you.
It is a turn off. It's gross, especially when they are hacking up their burnt lung juice. It stinks too. Definitely not attractive in any way
It is a turn off. Maybe not for people who are used to it, but for people who were grown up in non-smoking environments it's awful.
It's not the picture of someone smoking, that doesn't turn me off (cool character in TV shows and movies many times smoke, so I'm used to that picture) . What makes it an awful turn off is the smell, the taste and the smoke. Plus is not healthy.
I was once making out with a guy who I didn't know he smoked... It felt disgusting when we kissed. It turned me off a lot.
I love smoking after the sex. I love the hit in my mind, relaxes me.
Complete Turn Off ever kissed someone that smokes they reek. I lost Attraction to women after finding out they smoke.
Yes, you will have bad breath, and not mention it's bad for your lungs, and also I have asthma so someone smoking would make it hard for me to take a breath.

I smoke and I've never really worried about whether or not it turns anyone else on or off. I don't ask anyone to approve of it, nor do I seek their approval. I certainly won't have frequent alcohol drinkers telling me anything about smoking. They have no ground to stand on.
I think its a turn off most of the time. I smoke yes but I also carry smokers mints to prevent the making out with an ash tray nastiness that is such a turn off. I feel like im the only one who carries these mints. With them it be perfectly acceptable.
When I was a smoker, I had non-smoking women get with me. When I became a non-smoker, I did find the smell and the habit unpleasant to be around. The smell mostly... the ashes, the breath... yeah... I'll pass now. I guess the women that got with me when I smoked were just desperate.
In general, don't really care. Dating a smoker, preferably not and it is a turn off. There's nothing worse as a non smoker then kissing a smoker, especially if they've just had a smoke. Mid as well lick an ash tray! It's nasty! Nothing about it in any way is ever a turn on though.
Smoking is an instant and non-negotiable deal breaker.
Given what is known about smoking, a person would have to be a retard to smoke.
Yes. It is a self-destructive and expensive habit. Personal examples from my own family:
Paternal paternal great-grandfather, non-smoker, died at 102
Paternal grandfather, non-smoker, died at 96.
Father, moderate smoker, died at 62 fro cancer that started in his lungs and spread everywhere.
The first time I ever had an asthma attack was when I was 15 and was triggered by 2nd hand smoke. So, everytime I see someone smoke, it takes me back to that joyful moment.
Anyway, yeah. Major, MASSIVE turnoff!
It depends on the person. Smoking fetish is a real thing.
I am 420 friendly but not cigarettes. It just seems dirty to me. I don't mind the smell when smoking but the smell later is terrible. (like a smokers clothes or curtains)
Smoking to me is disgusting.. Its actually not just a turn off, but a deal breaker.. It demonstrates a weak personality and to me a fundamental character flaw. It shows you care nothing for your health or the health of others around you.
I am trying to cut tobacco products out of my life completely, so a woman smoking would be a little bit of a turn off for me... All of that being said let's be perfectly honest; there are far far far worse things that you can do with your health, then smoking. Especially if you are like me and only smoke one or two nights per week (three or four cigs for the week)
Honestly, for me it is. I don't care for the smell it leaves on a persons clothes, their house, car, or breath. Also the biggest reason is that it is so unhealthy and it affects others health as well.
For a nonsmoker, kissing a girl who smokes is something like kissing an ash tray! I much prefer a girl's natural breath.
It should be shutdown until the person realizes that dependacy on a object is like worshiping it. And many aren't going to have a life without cigarettes or some form of tobacco ingestion so they are worshiping it.
Some people hate some people love it some people go meh. That's just the way it is. But i ain't around anyone who hates it cause i smoke and everyone i know is meh and only a few love it. So i would say meh is most commen.
To me it's kind of like being a lot overweight. It's tolerable but then again a bad life choice and id want my partner to be healthy. Not judging anyone who smokes I'm a tobacco user myself. I'd just prefer a non smoker but wouldn't mind if she did.
Smoking is an indicator that the person is weak, and has no will power. On top of that, smokers really smell bad, and they usually toss the butts away by littering.
I can understand how some people would hate it inside their homes or car but outside of that I think they have little to complain about. If you don't like smokers, just avoid them. Someone can smoke their brains out around me and I don't even notice.
Yea, big turn off. I dont like the smell of it at all. I wouldn't want that on my clothes, in my house, car, or even taste it by kissing someone. Plus, there's the health risk.
i never found it a turnoff in girls. the only turnoff to me was cloths, cars, homes that reek of smoke
Inhaling toxic gas is a turn off, not to mention how unhygenic it is
For me yes, it's gross, it stinks and it's unhealthy. Also, I find that a cigarette held by a girl looks vulgar.
Smokeing to me is a turn off. It depends on you if you think smoking is a turn off then you go with your guts if you think smoking is good then go with that
Its completely a turn of to me, i just subconsciously get this signs like "if this person doesn't care about her life how the fuck she can take care of me!
It does kind of turn me on when girls smoke. I enjoy watching it and I don't really mind the smell. But I don't encourage anybody to do it. It's extremely unhealthy, not to mention expensive.
I would rather them not to smoke, but if they do that's not anything push me from that girl.
As a non-smoker, I can't tolerate the smell of it. A total turn off for me
Personally (as a smoker who got hooked when I was 8), I think its a disgusting habit.
I also don't know anyone who smokes "for sport" (ie; isn't addicted).
Ironically, I'm probably just as turned off by smokers as a non-smoker is, and admittedly turn myself off by smoking... (so, yes, I'm a chain smoker... lol)
I've actually given ladies the mistaken impression that I wasn't interested in them because I'd turn away, simply because I don't want to kiss someone tasting like smoke (even if they are a smoker); it's literally *the opposite* of that form of intimacy for me.
For me, if I were to kiss someone, I'd likely want to kiss them all over, so its akin to walking into someone's house w/ muddy shoes to pepper them with toxins "as an act of love".
A quick peck on the cheek in passing is a fair limitation to put on smokers... (it wipes off easy, like dog slobber) XD
