cigarette-fi - Page 3

post #31 of 174
I smoked for about 3 years loved Camel Turkish blend stuff and my mainstay was Lucky Strike until they discontinued filtered in the US. For a good year I smoked them unfiltered and then that's when I quit basically. I still lapse and have a stick or two every couple months, but generally I probably don't smoke more than a pack every 4 months now.

It makes it easy to stop smoking when your favorite cigs are hard to buy or stale. lol

Also, camel no.9s were surprisingly good for cigs that come in a pink box.

Surprised no-one has mentioned electronic cigarettes? I've got one somewhere, and if I knew where it was, I'd be using it right now.

As I've misplaced it over the past couple of days, I'm on 5 a day of the cheapest cigarettes I can get over the counter in the UK - Sterling Superkings Menthol

Still down from the 20 a day I was on at work, once I can find the old e-cig I'll get back to that, and cutting down strengths of nicotine liquid again.

When I was a bit younger (I'm 23 now) - say when I was 16, I used to smoke completely different stuff to my colleagues / fellow students. Most of them were smoking Lambert & Butler, Benson & Hedges... I was smoking unfiltered Capstans, Woodbines, and Senior Service. I'd be amazed if they were still legal, have to admit I've not seen them for a while!

Yeah, theres definately a case for making this thread 'Cigarette-Di'; unfortunately, the fact is tobacco smoking- and smoking pretty much anything- damges the health. I'm reluctant to get into it as a hobby- seeking out speciality cigs and/or cigars etc- for the fear of actually kidding myself I enjoy it! I'd hate to make it harder to quit than it already is...

I smoke Belmonts, but I'd do anything to get my hands on the Mild 7s.

I have to quit, smoking isn't exactly a good thing for policing in the future. :/

Marlboro Lights. I cut down a lot from how much I smoked a few years back, but I think it's about time for me to quit.

I don't smoke, but I just wanted to say that I can't understand how anyone who drinks can bash smokers. For that matter, anyone who indulges in fast food, or doesn't exercise, or etc.

We all have life choices that affect our health and at the end of the day, whatever choice may be worth it to whoever. I am posting this as I enjoy a

Corona after a hard day of work! Smoke on!

I like cigars but can't afford them.

As a very occasional cigarette smoker I prefer light cigarettes...Camel lights have been my favorite commonly available sticks but malboro lights will do in a pinch. Actually a chick at work got me started on Parliament Lights...a very mild, girly cigarette that I'm favoring right now.

I have always wanted to try 'better' cigarettes; as little as I smoke I can afford expensive ones, but the problem is that they go stale. Any tips on preserving cigarettes? I have thought maybe a nice cigarette case or maybe even ziploc bag would help. Only smoking a couple a week puts you in a minority of cigarette customers and I wish you could buy smaller packs or even individual cigarettes. With the decline in smokers I feel it's not as polite to bum smokes as it used to be.

To the inevitable thread-crappers, it's true that cigarettes are bad for you, as many enjoyable things in life are, and despite the image of the chain-smoking nicotine addict, there are people that find smoking an enjoyable pursuit. There are times in ones life--late, cold nights; the end of a long shift; sex; fishing in the rain--that are perfect for a cigarette and if you prefer not to know what you are missing, then just let us be.

Airtight in the refrigerator should do.

Put them in a ziploc bag and put the bag in the refrigerator. It will keep an unopened pack fresh for months, and an opened pack relatively fresh for a least a few weeks. You might want to throw in a couple of silica packets though, to keep moisture from forming on the tobacco.

That's one thing I hate about being a smoker in the UK; the cost is riduculous! So much tax on em.

meh as a uk smoker we live in the knowledge we pay for everything, we are the selfless givers who fund everyone elses health care and then we have a the good graces to die before we milk the system dry.

do not put tobacco in the fridge or freezer, and do not use silica packets-- this is exactly the opposite of what you want to do. tobacco likes 70% humidity to stay fresh.

the best cheap moisture source is iceberg lettuce --it has no discernable flavor or odor, and is largely water. put the cigs in a ziplock bag with a smallish leaf of the lettuce-- just make sure it does not touch the cigarettes. the lettuce will give up its water and the tobaco will absorb it-- they stay humidified, and will be fresh and smoke sloely.

just watch out for mold formation-- and don;t use too much lettuce.

Interesting tip/technique, thanks for sharing! Despite my earlier post I am tempted to aquire some speciality smokes and a way of storing them and keeping them fresh is useful knoweledge.
