Hi! I have been a student here in Taipei for nearly 8 months now. I’ve already graduated from university and plan to go on to graduate school here in Taiwan at NTU. I don’t teach English and unfortunately do not have very many “foreign” friends (e.g., fellow westerners).
So what exactly is my post about?
Well, I am wondering if anyone has ever heard about people who smoke here in Taipei or Taipei county. I’m not talking about tobacco. I don’t want to go against the rules of this forum nor would I want to offend anyone here with this topic, so I won’t go into specifics. I’m just curious if it’s possible here. As I mentioned, I am not a teacher, so I am not worried about health tests nor would I be a bad influence on any young students or anything of that nature.
This is purely something personal. I enjoy getting a little intoxicated every once in a while, but quite dislike drinking alcohol.
Has anyone ever heard about “a friend of a friend” who was able to pull this off here, perhaps by just asking the right people? If I am going to continuing remaining here for another 2-4 years, I’d like to know what my options might be.
