    Question Use to or Used to

    Is it proper to say "Did you use to smoke?" or Did you used to smoke? As far as I know the first from is the correct one. Please advise.

    The first is correct, but the second, though incorrect, is sometimes seen in print.

    Used you to smoke? is also correct, but it's not heard much nowadays.
