cigarette-fi - Page 7

post #91 of 175
Thanks pcf!

My thinking is that I quit before so I can do it again, I just have to stay quit this time.

I was off them for two and a half years a few years ago but cracked at a stressful time.

If anything getting through the initial giving up will be easier this time (though still very hard) because I know for a fact I'm capable of getting through it. Just have to stay quit this time.

I don’t smoke cigarettes, but I used to smoke cigars (20 years) until they were outlawed in bars.
I do however have a passion for smoking paraphernalia.
I collect Art Deco ash trays.
Its kinda cigarette-fi?
Anybody else collect ash trays?

That reminds me of a joke I heard before:
"Giving up smoking is easy, I have done it many times!"

Hope it works this time.

Cheers!

I gave up smoking (and patches) a while back. I used to quite like Davidoffs in the red packet.


3 brands i love

 

Davidoff Lights (the one sold in india without those dirty images)

 

Dunhill Lights

 

Marlboro red ..but smoke marlboro lights due to lower tar

 

 

 

became a smoker 3 months ago...so thought might as well share my opinions.

 

contributing factors to me starting smoking:

1. Mad Men (don draper makes smoking looks cool..cant resist)

 

2. Gf (ex) ....looking at her smoking all the time.

 

3. Clubbing/partying ...smoking helps socialise with chicks.

I went a year smoke free. Went on vacation with my friends to Asia and smoked my brains out for 2 weeks (about as much as I could considering my lungs aren't used to it). Not back in NYC and smoke free. It was a great 2 weeks while it lasted.

 

Smoked a ton of Dunhills, though I did switch to Mild Sevens.

Parliament Lights for me, very smooth and mild =_= and the recessed filter is pretty nice.

Dunhill Menthols for the past 23 years

post #99 of 175

I'm an occasional smoker, 1-2 a day, down from a pack a day. Throughout the years I've gone through many brands, from Kool to Salem to Marlboro. Lately I either buy the light blue pack of American Spirit or the $1 off Camels. I tend to buy on sale, so also the Newport Reds since they are always cheap. Sometimes I roll cigarettes. If I do it's the black American Spirit, no filter. I wish that flavored cigarettes weren't outlawed though, I miss the Camel Tins that had flavors like "Warm Winter Toffee" and "Mandarin Mint." You couldn't find a better tasting cigarette.

try Dunhill lights, Nat Sherman or American spirit 100% american made..best smokes out there without all the crap found in the bigger brands!

I don't know about the rest of Asia, but I've been spending some time in China and smoking is pretty much ubiquitous here. It seems like pretty much every male over 16 smokes, and a lot of girls smoke too, but less heavily. There's literally hundreds of brands here, and I've found many of them to be superior to American cigarettes that I've tried, ie smoother and better tasting (Djarum, though is awesome and I haven't found cloves here yet.) My favorite brand so far is Suyan, it's extremely smooth and "pure" tasting. It's hard to describe, but I've never had a cigarette anything like this before. It's about $7 usd, but definitely worth it (I'm not a heavy smoker so I can afford to splurge). My second favorite would be this Korean menthol brand, I'm not sure of the name. It's technically a women's cigarette (and it's obvious since it's super, super slim). It's probably the lightest, smoothest cigarette I've ever had. In fact, it doesn't taste like a cigarette at all, more like smoking a mint leaf. A very unique experience. Anyway, if you have the chance, try a Suyan. It may be the best cigarette you've ever had.

The reason I found the Camel's I mentioned to be the best was because:

 

-They lasted forever. I would be smoking a cigarette still while my friend finished a Marlboro Red 100.

-They came in really classy tins.

-They each had great flavors, the mocha one, for instance, really had a chocolate taste without being overpowering.

 

They weren't an every day cigarette though, more of a "desert" cigarette. Sadly flavored cigarettes were banned recently so they won't be sold again. In regards to the Suyans, thanks for the recommendation, but I barely smoke enough to bother importing.

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


 

Ahhh Belmonts...activated charcoal filter. My old brands were those and American Spirits, maybe a few scant packs of Djarims too ( those dark clove ones ). I used to smoke ( 7 years ) and quit 7 or 8  months ago but then I remembered that natural tobacco is one of the best sources of vitamin B, forget which one, so I grabbed a pack of American Spirit replacementstongue_smile.gif. Here in Canada they stopped selling the American Spirits probably some stupid Trade-related thing. I get the Northfield Naturals---something like $13 a pack OUCH. Not having too many  just time to time. They DO go good with a nice espresso shot on a frosty morning. May lose interest again may not. Who cares about that. I figure from time to time it's like an inoculation against the evils of the world. All the BeePollen, AloeJuice, Spirulina, Reishi Mushrooms, PropolisHoney, H2O2 Baths, working outside, etc more than compensates for the occasional smoke.

 

 Northfields are more like a small cigar and don't have a very noticeable "kick" to them. That's the espresso :0

 

During that S.A.R.S epidemic my brother had brought back some Ciggys from China when he was teaching English there. They had some herbal blend in them and they were amazing. Only got 2 packs though .Forget the name.

Oh yeah speaking of flavored ones:  I also tried some CHOCOLATE flavored ones from China too. DEEEEEELICIOUS!!!!!!  Right Keanex?

Used to do Parliaments. Moved over to Marlboro Mediums, then Full Reds. Dropped the cowboy stance and settled on Winston Full Flavor / Lights, alternating whenever I get the chance to buy a pack. For the everyday after-meal smoke, early morning dump, and numerous coffee breaks I go with Full. Caffeine and Nicotine keeps me droning on.
