No. That 1 cigarette will often cause you to have a life full of injury and have to quit again. About a third of smokers are genetically addicted. What we mean by that is that 1 cigarette will hook them for a long, long, time. And by hook them for a long, long time, we mean they will be addicted again, as addicted as if they had a pack of cigarettes. For the other two-thirds of smokers, they might be able to try one, but they might get addicted again. It just is not genetically programmed into them. So, the answer will be "no it is not okay to just have one. That will addict you in a bad way again."
