This makes me miss seeing people smoke though I'm glad I quit.

I love stuff like this! All the subtle little tells your body has that gives itself away - fascinating.

Looking back to a lot of people that held their cigarettes in certain ways, that chart does ring true!

I usually hate cigarette smoke. The other day, I walked outside my apartment and smelled cigarette smoke and became nostalgic. I associate that smell with going to the California State Fair and concerts - pre-2020 activities that are greatly missed.

I have had adult onset asthma since I was about 50 (exposed to 2nd hand smoke too many years at the office).  Tobacco smoke just shuts down my lungs.  During my single years, I could not even date a guy who smoked.

Opposite here.  I could never kiss a man who Didn't smoke.  The thought of stale human breath rather than smoky breath was creepy.

My late husband said he learned to hold his cigarette with the ash cupped inside that way in the military where it was done to hide it when outdoors but not allowed.

I have a picture of my grandparents in which Grandpa was holding a cigarette. He was holding it between his index and middle finger near the top knuckle (closest to fingertips) with his hand open. After looking at that chart I can’t tell if he’s an A or an F. He looks tense in the photo (he was at home, still recovering from a deadly chemical explosion on a ship that killed his coworker).

My parents didn't smoke. I bet if they did smoke, I never would have (rebellion).  But I sure did love smoking, up until I realized i was caught.

I hate being caught!
