    for NON-smokers...

    can you tell if a guy smokes when you kiss.

    I'm trying to quit smoking, been a heavy smoker and now trying to kick off the habit. I'm taking it slow though, for the past 2 months now im on a 1-stick a day and most of the time none. Hopefully one day I wouldnt even miss it.

    Incidentally, I'm currently dating a guy who's never been a smoker, and he dont like being around with anybody who does.
    I only smoke when I'm at the office and always do my mouthcare routine If I did.

    I wonder though, can you really tell if the guy you are kissing smoke hours before you kissed.
    I never got any complaints with my guy but I wonder if he is just being nice or just avoiding the topic.

    Can you really tell?

    Absolutely.

    Smokers stink.

    It's in their hair, clothes, their carpets, cars...everything.

    I can smell most smokers as far away as 10 feet; some heavy smokers, even further.

    No "Real Jock" would ever smoke.

    My mom has emphysema and is on oxygen. She is the ONLY one of her group of peers that hasn't already died from lung cancer. She's lucky: she's just tied to oxygen.

    The folks who never said anything were simply being nice. I guarantee that you stink.

    Yea...
    The truth is even if you don't smoke all day
    your BF will still be able to tell

    Just think of it as one more incentive to get rid of the filthy habit

    chunckystuff, Be easy on the guy! I belonged to golds gym and some guys are puffing on the way out. So don't tell him that all jocks are alike.

    But yes, non smokers can smell a smoker right away!

    It can be a turn off unless he will tolerate it.

    Congrats on kicking the bad habit. After you are smoke free for some time you will join the ranks of us non-smokers that can smell the smokers around us.

    Again congrats and keep up the hard work.

    Well I agree with Chucky, except I would have phrased it differently..

    I would say most realjocks shouldn't smoke if they subscribe to living life in a healthful way (which is the goal isn't it?)

    With what we know today, I can't imagine anyone wanting to smoke cigarettes. Noone will ever smoke in my house!!

    Having said that, my bf smoked after we got involved, did it outside and it wasn't an issue. Back in the beginning, I don't remember smelling any smoke, but considering the exuberant energy filled person that hit him.... I probably wouldn't have noticed it.
    Today he doesn't smoke. I DO notice others who have, its like Chucky says.. on their breath, in their clothes and hair and it isn't positive, especially if I'm meeting them for the first time.

    So to answer your question... I'd quit, but in the meantime, talk to the guy your dating and never smoke around him, period.

    I used to do toxicology tests for nicotine. It takes three days after you stop smoking for the nicotine to be undetectable in your serum and seven days before it completely leaves your body. You will desire cigarettes for at least that long. I used to smoke many years ago and I still desire a cigarette every once a while. Nicotine is one of the most addictive drugs out there, illicit or legal. My partner smokes about three cigarettes a day but always outside so I do not have to smell it in the house but I can still smell it on his breath hours after he has smoked. Good luck, but I think the best way to stop is cold turkey.

    chuckystud is spot on right. and sorry, his phrasing is appropriate.

    smoker's do stink. a neighbor of mine (smoker) gave me a cool cotton shirt when he moved. i could not get that cigarette smell out of it, no matter how many times i washed/bleached it. ended up tossing it.

    if you care about your health, why would you put poison in your body? my grandmother died a relatively young woman from emphysema. it was a waste.

    and a big part of sex is someone's scent. if they reek, then i can't be close to them. i don't want to touch them. and i don't want to be in the same room as a smoker because they smell so bad. sorry i'm harsh, but it's the truth.

    but, karlaban. you should be commended. you are kicking the habit. good for you. keep it up. icon_biggrin.gif

    Having grown up with a smoker, I'm particularly sensitive to the smell.

    One guy I dated managed to keep his smoking a secret. I just didn't catch a single whiff of it around him. I didn't find out he smoked until we were in bed and I was giving him head. That's when I tasted it.

    So while most smokers are easily detectable, some aren't. There are two gals at the office who smoke, and I know when they've just come inside from smoking because you can smell it from 10 feet away for about 15 minutes after they've stopped.

    It's true. It's the air that comes from the lungs that smells of smoke, and that's not something that can be concealed with mints or mouthwash.

    I kissed a smoker once.


    That was enough.

    Karlaban,

    Good luck quitting. Don't give up - you will be happier, healthier, you're whole life will benefit. Most guys I know wouldn't even date a smoker. There are a ton of reasons for you to quit.

    I can smell the stuff on guys - and I don't like it a bit. Also, I can often spot a smoker - sometimes a sort of tired look - lines around the mouth.

    The idea is correct, everybody phrases things differently. Nobody's is correct, its their opinion.

    The question is a joke, right? It's usually obvious that someone smokes when they come within two meters. From within one meter, it's unmistakable. Once or twice I kissed one and I literally thought that he had a spoonfull of shit in his mouth.

    i'm currently dating a smoker who is hygienic and i can't tell he's a smoker. he's very clean about it, brushing his teeth, and washing after every smoke.

    if you are a slob, yes people will be able to tell. shrug.

    and no, ive never smoked nor had the urge.

    Even a smoker's cum tastes funky....well, actually, nasty!

    My dad was a smoker. It caused severe arteriosclerosis. He was always having surgeries to correct it.

    One day he fell and my mom thought he had broken a rib because there was a bump on his side.

    The xrays showed there was no broken rib....in fact, there was no rib. It was a lung cancer tumor that was growing thru his body wall. It had already "eaten" the rib that was supposed to be there.

    His lungs were totally filled with cancer. Whereas, the year before, his checkup showed him perfectly free of cancer.

    He died two weeks and a day after his diagnosis.

    P.S. I support Chucky's brutal language. It isn't going to hurt anywhere near as your bad health and medical treatments. Take the "hint"...and STOP SMOKING!!!!!!

    Unfortunately I get grossed out by smokers/dippers. I find it a horrible habit. If a guy tells me he doesn't smoke I know if he is lying, especially if I kiss him or ok close your eyes to the innocent virgins out there but I even taste it in their cum and it makes me gag. So I don't date smokers....the sad part is I'm in Europe and about everyone smokes so I'll be single for a long time or until I leave to come back to the U.S.

    well it stinks and as far as I am concenrn I just cannot enjoy kissing a smoker whilst kissing is a big thing for me. So typicaly smoker = a no go!

    That said I'll point out that any one on earth has relative(s) who died or is in medical care because of smoking so this alone should let you figure out that you'd be better off stopping.

    B

    PS: arriving in NY 4 years ago was a great relief as smoking is completely out of fashion there compared to Europe.

    I can look at a persons lips and tell that they smoke because the lips may look dark and thin then I would keep an eye out for little signs. And you can look at the skin complexion also. It is a nasty habit to have.

    My first lover was a smoker and I didn't realize how much the smell permeated our home until I was cleaning up and smelled the drapes on the window. I thought the drapes were smoking!!

    I can't bring myself to be even remotely interested in a smoker no matter how hot he is!!

    And don't take this the wrong way, but if I had to choose between an HIV positive non-smoker and a smoker and I was attracted to both; I would choose the the HIV positive guy. And I would date an HIV positive person anyway to put it out there.

    of course you can tell if someone is a smoker and its much easier these days since we are generally exposed to far less second hand smoke.

    I've handled too many estates for people who died way to early of lung cancer.

    Every smoker should have to spend time with someone who is dying of COPD

    Mindgarden suggested that the question might be a joke.

    But the fact is that most smokers can't tell that they reek of smoke, and don't notice it on other smokers. They are just so accustomed to it that it doesn't register.

    So if a smoker is asking, it's probably because he has heard that smokers smell, but hasn't himself experienced it.

    WOW guys!

    I am so glad to see a variety of people post on this.
    To Karlaban, I think you got more than you were asking for.

    I myself have just started dating someone who admitted after the 1st date (lunch, no kissing/sex) that he smokes 1-2 coffin nails/day. but was trying to quit. I told him that had I known this when he first approached me I would NOT have consented to meeting.
    He has since quit, but that was a close one! I can STILL taste it in his mouth after a few days off the poison but only faintly.... he was trying to quit before and I guess dating gave him the final incentive.

    Bottom line as everybody says; quitting is the best option.
