what cigarettes do you smoke? what cigarettes do you recommend?
i'm asking this for ideas.
Best straights are obviously Marlboro reds.
Hardly inspired, but what can I say?
I'm part time though these days, nights out from about 11pm onwards.
when i was a teenage toe-rag. i'm thinking of buying a pack of ten and maybe smoking one or two a day, so i'm not spunking massive loads on fags a week. i just got the taste again recently...
i might quit when i go home.
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
trust YOU TWO PERVS to be the only ones to spot that.
trust THIS PERV to be the one who deliberately writes it...
best cigarettes ever.
i quit 3 weeks ago though stop talking about nicotine please.
I like American Spirits the bestest though
or camel for a change. all full strength, none of your "light" shite.
I want to get some clove cigarettes.
so i'll stick with the lights thanks. not that i intend on picking up the habit again.
apart from the want of clove cigarettes.
there's a guy at work who ONLY smokes cigars. he has a moustache. he's awesome.
never liked them.
tom waits mentions them in Kentucky Avenue. And he's got a packet of Old Gold on the cover of Small Change. He's my smoking mentor.
because i'm a fucking stereotype.
is what i used to smoke.
i miss them so much.
toasted not sundried
we reserve for only when it's 3am, and there are NO OTHER possible options. and you're so wasted you don't realise it's burning through your esophagus.. ?
they were the cigarrettes of my teenage years until i gave up.
plus it was fun say im going to smoke my lukcy lucky strike
oh i was young
I can't wait to be 18 so I can actually start getting different brands. I usually stick to the same brand out of some bizarre fear I wont be able to pull of even just saying the name of the other brand, and they wont sell me.
3 weeks cold turkey might be going down the drain
you'll hate yourself.
*desperatly searches for gum*
i fucking refuse to pay the ridiculous amount that is now required to inflict death upon myself. ARGHHH enjoying a slow death should not be this expensive!
over a fiver gone
so if you take say a tenner out one morning, thats half gone and in the end you have nothing to show for it!
i have a feeling when im 18 ill take it up again just because i can and im young
but for now. im being good and getting my health back a bit :]
pretty impressive to go cold turkey, if you started fairly young and on reds. don't give in.
and rehearsing what i'd say, and getting all nervous and feeling like a prick. although i oddly never got id'd.. UNTIL i was about 22! all the effing time now. it's embarassing.
decided to give up
because the place i always go to just one day id'd me.
i couldnt believe it.
probably for the best :[
with the £60 i would have spent on camels in 3 weeks. It was GREAT! plus i don't stink of smoke. and i can walk up hills without dying. awesome.
i'm smoking a cigarette right now, and if it was a choice between walking up a hill or this, i know which i'd go for.
i'd be on about 1000 a day.
except in the kitchen. my housemates (all smokers) are a bit funny about it.
i'm doing it anyway though.
i want to want to quit.
that was another thing.. i was smoking in my flat constantly... and i had to stop when my new flatmate moved in... and i rarely leave the house at the mo cos i'm buried in essays, so it's either, hang out the window, stand in the rain, or have a quick drag on my way to the corner shop. Kinda stopped enjoying it.
all my reliable non smoking friends, have just bloody started smoking. so i don't actually know anyone that doesn't smoke. as soon as i start socialising again, i'm monumentally fucked.
my best friends all still smoke. so i have to sit/stand with them when they smoke.
also giving up is a bugger for meeting boys at gigs
'sorry...have you got a lighter..'
so im healthy but single
the maccabees tried to chat me up the other week because of my zippo. ha ha. pulling power now defunct.
its true though!
the number of simply good friends ive made by offering a cigarette or lighter etc is amazing.
that will look a little strange for a newby non smoker. but hey, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!
when it used to fall out of my jeans pocket i used to tell my mum i had it to turn the end of my Kohl because it makes it not smudge.
she actually belived me.
i dont know why that just came to me
repeatedly lent my lighter to the girl from times new viking last week, at several of their shows.
i did not attempt to chat her up. fail.
if a girl ever asks to borrow a lighter and shes remotly attractive/at an obsre gig that she must have good taste in music to be at, you must chat her up! she wants to be chatted up!
i'm guessing she has good taste.
are you sure that's right?
because sometimes it really really seems like they just want a lighter.
99% of the time. they want you not the lighter :D
i've been wasting my life.
a few jonnys
and a gig ticket
and your set to gooooooo
here i come
but i'll ask a guy to borrow theirs even if i have one in my bag.
do the maths. ;)
yeah, i would've thought that, once you get past 16, everyone who smoked smoked and everyone who didn't didn't. i'm 25 now though, and still loads of people i know are drifting or have just drifted into the habit, having never smoked before in their lives.
maybe it's because it's frowned on more?
have started fairly recently because their other half smokes...which i can understand but also find silly...half of them say they dont really enoy it but find its nice and sociable with their 'boiii's'
then again between 20-23
i suspect this will be a recurring pattern. i hope not though. i have noticed a lot of 'late' starters, you're right..
this is a great insentive to give up!
i think i'd probably enjoy it
sobranie black russian
so smoking is out of the question for me.
although it's the sedentary lifestyle that will kill me, not smoking.
If I did. They're just cooler than anything else.
I'd be strolling down the street in a Westmancott suit, taking infrequent drags on my Gitanes Blondes, before catching the nonchalent gaze of the maiden sat outside le café, scarf a-billowing.
I saw one for £40
I wonder what it would be like...
They could be good for use inside night clubs etc
vogues are divine too
their really long and feel so light and clean
...or marlboro mediums when out swilling.
Lucky Strike Silver and sometimes Red if not then Marlboro Gold (never red) with the odd lean to Royals if im skint.
or any light cigarettes really. It doesent feel like you're smoking.
Silk Cuts on the other hand i'd agree with u there, but since I have cut down my throat has those hairs which burn when u smoke for the first time so harsh cigs are out of the question, I USED to smoke Black Russians... hmmmm
so my £30 a week on cigarettes has dropped to £6 :D
Smoked nearly a whole pack last night and i felt terrible when i woke up this afternoon.
the fact you say when you woke up this afternoon
my parents lived in egypt for a few years and whenever i went to visit i'd bring back as many cartons as i could fit in my suitcase. They were about £7 each! and being from outside the EU, i was shocked to move here and realise that you can't buy duty free within the EU. that's like, the best part of traveling.
under no cirumstances do u ever and I mean EVER buy Pall Mall cigarettes! U HEAR ME!
My only rule is dont go below £5 a pack, cos then you get Mayfair quality stuff. My mum smokes them and they're completely horrible. They smell of chemicals.
they taste disgusting! And I mean it, they fall to pieces, burn ur throat and even the package quality has a lot to be desired.
They are at least half the quality of say your average Richmond.
smoking nirvana is kreteks of various sorts.
You know when food tastes rubbish after brushing your teeth or using mouthwash or some of those extra strong polos.
Is there any similar effect to smoking afterward? obvs not taste, but does it make smoking less enjoyable?
my only temptation to smoke is basically to find this out.
tastes like menthols, is fine to me
like menthol but without being gay, only more hygenic.
I don't get why I don't like menthols. There like cigarettes 2.0... I just DON'T.
The wikipedia page says something weird like 80% of black american smokers smoke menthols. Pretty odd.
Iwasalightninkitten gave me my first smoke in ages that night. boy was it goooooood. then on thursday night, i had two roll-ups while trying not to watch the football. FUCK were they good!
but i, too, tend to smoke other folks fags ^5
i give cat-g cigarettes cos she usually reimburses me in some form, but as the only "proper" smoker in our "group" i am a sitting duck for "i only smoke when I'm drunk" people.
i've not even done it that often and i reimburse too. those roll-ups were more pity "if i give you these, will you shut up?" ones.
this thread was really created so i could decide what to buy, so i don't go stealing anymore :(
know many 'only smoke when drunk types', but i am virtually the only one of my friends who smokes straights and not rollies, and none of them have grasped that rollies just aren't practical for clubbing, so my cigarettes tend to all but disappear after midnight. i've actually started taking 2 packs out to compensate. i'll buy their love yet...
i was always with the 2 packs... sigh!
20p or 10p for one cigarette, when you were at school? the price depended on the quality of cigarette. good times.
does this still happen?
about a month ago, some drunk guy came up and offered my a couple of quid for one cigarette. fool.
i miss the good old days...
I manage to fund my habit by selling them to desperate 12 year olds and break time. If i buy a pack of 10 i can sell them and get myself a packet of tobacco and another 10 cigarattes to sell. and it just keeps going on and on.
Silver is my favourite colour, plus i think they taste good, more real and dirty in comparison to marlboro lights. You can actually feel the wrongness entering your lungs.
