    Treena, this isn't an illegal substance, so unless it turns into a war, I see no reason this thread is unfit.

    With that said, I WISH I WOULD HAVE NEVER STARTED!

    I smoked Marlboro lights for 10 years, but ended up switching to Winston S2's, since there was no additives, and it honestly has a smoother, better taste.

    blah blah blah...non smokers can stay out of this thread plzkthxbye.


    i smoke american spirit lights when i don't feel like rolling my own, but when i've got the time, i'm all about the bali shag halfzware. it's more than worth the time involved rolling it.
     
  6. Tim, I merely stated an opinion and I know it's not illegal, you do need to be 18 in most states to purchase them though!

    I just hope the younger kids don't think it "cool" because someone they like smokes.

    Believe me, as far as image goes, there aren't many things more "uncool" than smoking in todays age.

    I quit just over a year ago, and it was without doubt the toughest thing ive ever had to do. I was all farged up for months, anxiety attacks, nausea, and sorts of other fun stuff. I'd love to suck one back, but i couldn't be arsed to quit again. It was just way to hard.

    But i used to smoke "champion ruby" rollies, or winfield gold if i was smoking pre-rolls.

    I have different experiences (thank god).
    Before I quit I used to chain-smoke. In the first weeks after I quit, I thought I had some heart things, but this was psychosomatic it turned out. I didn't have any major problems, just some periods when I was tempted to begin again. I never used any nicotine supplements or books or sth., I just plain quit from one second to another - and this is the only way to do it IMO.

    I used patches .....i dont think i could have done it cold turkey......Though its probably the best option if you're capable of doing it. The patches were OK, but they can give you some pretty wacked out dreams.

    I was sweet for the 1st week of quitting, not a problem in the world. Then one night i was sitting at my computer transcribing a tower of power song. It was starting to p!ss me off a little, because i couldnt quite hear the bassline through the mix, then BANG, out of the blue i had an anxiety attack. It scared the sh1t out of me. I was pretty screwed up for about the next month, but after that i've never felt better.

    annnnyway ....sorry 'bout the hijack

    Marlboro Mediums for me. Smoking is a nasty habit! I've been smoking for too long. But damn it, I'm no quitter! Besides, I'm paying top dollar for my own death!!!

    :eek: i just had a dream that i bought a pack on winstons. i haven't dreamt about cigarettes in years.

    i used to smoke lots and lots, 2 1/2 to 3 packs a day, for a long long time. it's been over 10 yrs thank god since i've done that.

    marlboro I think was my favorite, although i smoked kent. i smoked kent because at my H.S. kids would always bum cigarettes like crazy. when they saw I had kents, they'd say "nahhh" and move on to the next guy. i grew accostomed to them.

    used to switch a lot too. salem, salem lights, marlboro lights, winston, whatever was new on the market, belair, parliament, true, camels.... do they even make all these brands anymore?

    anyone remember multifilter cigarettes???
     
  17. I used to roll my own. But I gave it up 6 months ago.:D

    in the end it was a few years of Winston Light 100s.

    but like Joe, I smoked Merit for years so no one would grub from me.

    I quit in Oct 2001 after 20 years of smoking. (the events of 9/11 effected me on many fronts)
