So, what to you guys smoke, anyway? What do you ask for at the counter? When I walk in, it's Winston box. They lay it on the counter as I walk in.

My wife smokes Marlboro Blend #27.

How 'bout you? Non-smokers may feel free to leave witty comments, but I think you're pussies.

EDIT: Also, box or soft pack?

I change it up. Marlboro and Camels mostly.

Camel Wides.

No 27s are okay, but I won't smoke anything else unless it's all they got.

Camel lights hard pack. Camel Joe got me as a kid.

Marlboro Red Box or Camel Filters.

But I only smoke about a pack a month.

Quit 11 months ago. Used to smoke Marlboro Lights.

RJ Reynolds vs Phillip Morris? I'll bet you own a Glock and a 1911, too.

I used to smoke regularly. Now it is just occasional, like when I'm drinking or go to a bar. When I do smoke I smoke Winstons.

RJR all they way here, even though I've got some pretty sweet stuff courtesy of Phillip Morris and his Marlboro miles.

camel lights. Marlboro's taste nasty to me.....like stale or something. 27's are good....but they kinda burn your throat. camel lights are the perfect combo of robust without being sharp.

Non-smokers are pussy's? We're not the one's who always have to have something in our mouths.

They don't call them pole smokers for nothing.

Is there really a difference between brands? (Taste, etc.)
Link Posted: 12/1/2007 7:31:08 PM EDT
Marlboro Menthols in a box. Usually buy them 2 cartons at a whack.

Matter of fact, I do, G17 & Springfield Loaded.

My parents are heavy smokers & they don't understand how I can switch brands like that. My siblings smoke the same brand as my parents, makes it easier to steal packs.
Link Posted: 12/1/2007 7:32:14 PM EDT
I smoked for 14 years but quit about 2 years ago.

I always preferred menthols. I was a cheapass. Basics Menthol lights.

Absolutely, IMO. Marlboros taste like shit to me and burn my tongue. Camels are pretty good, but I think Winstons are the best.

Quit smoking about 3 and a half years ago, but yes there is a difference. I smoked Camels and Marlboros, Camels had a better flavor.
Link Posted: 12/1/2007 7:34:51 PM EDT
Camel Filters for 20+ years till I had a stroke.

Switched to Marlboros.....then back to the Camels

Pipe smoker now. Much more flavor and don't inhale as much.

I was an idiot for fifteen years and mostly smoked Winstons.

Now I just enjoy BREATHING.
Link Posted: 12/1/2007 7:39:18 PM EDT
I guess I'm pretty lucky. I smoke about 1 or 2 cigarettes a week. I only get the urge sometimes in the morning if it's cold out and I'm drinking a cup of coffe, or if I'm out drinking and there are alot of smokers around.

I'll sometime go off the deep end and buy a pack of 'em about once a year, but I never finish them. I can't smoke them all. I think I'm lucky not to get hooked.

When I used to smoke - Marlborough Lights Box

2 + packs a day.

I quit about 7 yrs ago. No pussy here. I just felt smoking was the dumbest ass thing I have ever done in my life. Nothing smart about it, it just screams dumbass. Yes I used to smoke. I am not saying it screams the smoker is always a dumbass, just the habit/addiction is a dumbass thing to do.

You'll feel really manly when your circulation goes to shit and your feet start to hurt and then your toes turn black as they die from chronic circulatory failure. Circulation problems cause constant pain.


And let's not forget Pulmonary Fibrosis, emphysema, lung cancer, etc. The most benign of them is PF. My father has it. He smoked since he was a teenager until he was about 44, and he's 77 now and sleeps with supplemental oxygen every night and carries an oxygen
bottle if he does anything outside for very long. The condition only gets worse.
Odds are that he'll be unable to get out of bed in the last months of his life as he won't be
able to get enough oxygen even if on 100 percent oxygen at that time.

To lose the ability to get enough oxygen from normal breathing. What a terrible thing to do to yourself because you're too damned STUPID AND WEAK to overpower your ADDICTION and stop smoking.

I'm watching a friend of mine smoke himself to death right now. He SAYS he's quitting
but I see no difference in how many packs he's buying and smoking. His feet are
starting to hurt and he has bad circulation and his weight problem isn't helping.
He's 52 and looks almost as old as my father who's 25 years older.


Keep smoking and this is your future. I'm 42, I don't smoke, drink, or do drugs,and I look almost ten years younger than my age. The difference is my lack of these vices.

Marlboro ultra light 100's (box) about a pack a week, when I'm at work and stressin'

Used to smoke Marlboro Reds.
Haven't had a cigarrete in almost 4 years.

I remember when I first tried smoking and coughed my ass off for several minutes when I inhaled.

What would drive someone to keep doing that until they became accomplished at the task?

Sheer lunacy.

Nah...I like being able to breathe and smell things...oh, and waking up without my mouth tasting like an ashtray pretty much kicks ass.

I was a 2 pack/day Camel straights smoker for a number of years.

(Incidentally, was that the result of Marlboro red's, or lights?)

After I quit I had dreams about smoking. Chantix worked for me and I tried everything else. Also a mental image helped me more than anything. I took a pillow case, dipped it in water, then put it over a tail pipe of a car. Within minutes the pillow case was completely black. I then dipped a cigarette butt in water, then smoked the cigarette- the whole end of the butt was black. That shit, those chemicals were in my lungs, killing me slowly, taking years away from being with my wife, my family all because of an addiction, a weakness.

I've never smoked but I can see the attraction. I was thinking about starting. My plan was to start gradually by using the patch in reverse. Once I was hooked, I would really enjoy lighting up. Then I calculated what I would spend on cigarettes in one year. I'm just too cheap to pick up another bad habit.
Most of the smokers that I know have tried to quit several times and failed several times. My advice to them is that they shouldn't bother trying to quit. Then they wouldn't feel weak. Besides, self denial is over rated.

Used to smoke Natural American Spirit Periques. American Spirits are hands down the best cigarettes I've ever smoked.

Unfortunately since the Texas price hike I've gone to Winstons.

I had no problem at all after quiting. Occasional recolection of how great it was to smoke and drink. To this day I still have dreams of giving in and taking a smoke only to wake up thankfull it was only a dream. I lost a Grandfather and a Great Aunt over it. Also my Great Uncle lost a lung. just not worth it. Yes I could still die from what I did but I am hopefully reducing my chances. Plus, you stink like shit! Realy you do. Was told that after I quit.

Started with my mom's Winstons, started smoking my own Kool Filters, moved on to Marlboro Greens, decided menthol was the debil, went to Reds, and then to Camel Filters.

Back in the day I was a pussy (still am) that smoked Marlboro Light Menthols. Box, definitely box.

I quit roughly 10 years ago and haven't looked back.
