Well we have a post about beer so...
I'm sure there are a few other cigarette smokers out there, what are you guys smoking? My favourites are Lucky Strike, with the occasional pack of Dunhills when I have a little more cash. I was at a store the other day and they didn't have luckies, so the guy suggested Vantage to me, saying it was also "an old-school smoke". I'm on my second pack and I'm still a little on the fence about them, but they have a cool filter that's bored out in the middle (Lucky Strikes don't have filters at all).
Anyway, so what are you guys smoking? And yes, I know it's bad for me. I'm 22 and I'm invincible, so there.

i smoke cloves when i drink, call me a bitch, but i love them things. i think the cloves sort of soothe your lungs so you don't cough. lots of nicotine in them too! i hate cigarettes. when i smoke them, i feel like crap. i tried smoking luckies and boy did my lungs hurt. never hurt so bad from smoking anything. i bought a pack cause they sponser my favorite F1 team (so i guess the sponsorship worked!) anyway, those sucked. i smoke cigars when i'm out working on the car on a warm day with a 6 pack of beer or when out fishing. it's nice to slowly smoke one and just chew on it, good stuff.

A tip to the "addicts" out there. My wife smokes (I never have, except for when I light up once a year to piss off the anti-smoking nazis on "Great American Smokeout Day"). Several years ago I got her to start making her own cigarettes instead of buying them at the store (locally $36-40/carton). She orders loose tobacco and filtertubes from a firm and makes her own now, using a cigarette machine, at the cost of $27 for 3 cartons. Regular or menthol terbaccy, regular or light filters.

When I smoked, it was Marlboro Ultra Lights (yeah, what's the point?) or the Special Blends here in the States. Back home in Canada it was Du Maurier ultra lights/lights or Marlboros whenever we went cross-border shopping.

Because I have a 92 mile commute to work, I used to chain smoke like a chimney. Half a pack to work and the rest of the pack on the way home. There were times when I felt so sick, I had to throw up once I got home to feel better. It was weird because I would light one up and then had to have something in my hand as I drove so I'd light up one after the other until I got to work or home.

I'll occasionally partake in a smoke once in a while but buying a pack for myself is out of the question nowadays.

I actually like to roll my own sometimes too, and it's a hell of a lot cheaper. I usually have a pack around anyway though, because I can't roll them very well at the shop when my hands are greasy. I have one of the tube machines too, but I prefer unfiltered, so I usually end up hand rolling from a pouch.

I've switched so many times I can't remember but I do remember all brands I've smoked. I switch between reg and menthol but usually stick to menthols. I used to smoke Marlboros about a year ago I switched to Camel Turkish Jades which are menthols, now I'm down to 5 Turkish Jade Lights a day, so I'm getting closer to quiting all together.

Long ago it was Newports but that made my chest hurt after a year or so.

Now it's Marlboro menthol lights but I only smoke when I drink or when I'm bout to go 99. It helps put me out quick.

Can't smoke in the mornings, gives me headaches.

I tried non-menthols and just absolutely can't smoke them. YUK.

I used to smoke ciggs for the longest time... then i quit one day after a surgery, and i've never looked back... man, i feel soooooo much better, and i'm glad that i don't smell like that anymore.

I've said it many times, but i just want to go back, and apologize to all my non-smoking friends who have had to deal with that smell on road trips, or hanging out, or whenever... its hideous. And if you are a smoker, you don't have any clue about the actual smell, because your body just doesn't notice it.

Food also tastes better to.. a nice side-benefit, especially for me, since i am really into flavorful food... hehe.

Im a marlboro red man myself.. stupid me I started smoking again.. I quit for 7 months!!! Then I started again.. I was pretty sure that I was going to end up in divorce court.. and the job I had at the time sucked in a major way.. so I was stressed out to the max.. and I lit one up... been smoking ever since..

Im actually trying to psyche myself up to quit again..

At first.. it really really sucks.. the first month is hell... then the second month get easier.. the 3rd sucked.. the fourth was ok.. and then it went pretty good up until the last few weeks of the seventh month...

my friends mom explained it to me like this..

the first year is very hard to get through.. the second years goes by pretty easily.. then the 3rd year sucks.. and the 5th year sucks.. then she went pretty good until the 7th year.. she had a really hard time that year.. but she hasnt had a problem or an urge since that 7th year... she has been smoke free for almost 25 years now...

I guess every 3rd year the urge kinda comes back to you.. until you are finally "clean" from all the poison you have put into your body...

Im going to give up this nasty habit here pretty soon.. hopefully it sticks this time around...

later

Pete, that sounds a lot like what happened to me.

A few years ago, I quit for New Year's. Used the patch. It was going great. Then around the first week of March, I left my ex-wife. Moved out. Got a new place, stressed out over divorcing/moving, started smoking again first week of April.

I don't smoke in my house or car, and I can honestly say I have never smoked more than 4-5 (cigs) a day, but I usually find myself needing that reason to leave my desk or my couch to just go outside and get some fresh air, see the sun. Of course, breathing fresh air then polluting my lungs kinda defeats the purpose, but oh well.

I'll be joining you non-smokers again soon.
