rolling cigarettes
    #4604506 - 08/31/05 07:01 PM (16 years, 1 month ago)

If you smoke.. do you roll your own cigarettes?
Probably only like 5% or something of smokers roll their own, based on my observations. It's usually the poor ones, like me. Or the smart ones, who don't want to contribute to the filters on the ground everywhere, or want to save money.

But seriously.. if I buy a pack of cigarettes. It's gone in 24 hours. Sometimes I can make a pack last 2 days, if I am the only one smoking them and I stretch them out. But I almost always bum out cigarettes to just about anyone who asks for one. Based on cigarette prices now (average of $4 a pack).. for someone that smokes a pack a day - that's about $1500 a year.

I've been rolling my own cigs for the past 7 or 8 months now and its done me well. $4 will buy me a pouch of american spirits that will last me 2 weeks. Plus it's just organic tobacco.. none of that cyanide, arsenic, chemical combinations in most cigarettes. One of my rolled cigarettes will burn for about 15-20 minutes (unadalturated tobacco burns slower than chemical soaked tobacco, and I roll them tight). Thus I smoke less. I will only smoke about 7 rolled cigs a day. 10 if I am chain smoking. You can't really chain smoke rolled cigarettes anyway.
Do you roll your own?
You may choose only one
Yes always
No I always buy taylor-made cigs
Sometimes I roll my own
I will probably try rolling my own after reading this

meh.. most of the people who say american spirits taste like shit are the ones that smoke either: camels, newports, or marlboro. American Spirits taste like tobacco... because that's what they are. Nothing but tobacco. I smoke the organic kind.
I know people that dont smoke, who cannot stand the smell of normal cigarette smoke. However when I smoke american spirits, they say it doesn't bother them at all.

If you would like to know what is in your 'normal' cigarettes - here is a list of the 994 chemicals they add "for flavor and even burning" to most major cigarettes- http://www.blowingsmoke.arizona.edu/web%20articles/chemicals_cigs.htm

You can buy filters for 1 cent a piece (100 for $1).

I myself don't smoke but everyone I work with does. And we work right beside a smoke shop (I mean cigar type smoke shop). When they raised the cig tax a while back by like .70 or something several people I work with started rolling their own. They didn't raise the tax on loose tabacco. The smoke shop next door gives us all deals. It is like $1.50-$2 for a bag of tabacco (don't know brands) compared to the $4-$4.50 for a pack. And the bag is equivalent to about 1.5 packs. So you get a great deal.

Great minds think alike. Rolling your own = k3y

You forgot about the countless chemicals that are not in rolling tobacco....

It's much less hazardous to your health.

i used to roll my own, but now i only smoke every once in a while. if more shops carried pouches other than tops or butler or some other shitty brand, i'd probably smoke more. i liked bali shag..

nope I didn't forget.. see my last post. I gave a link that lists all the chemicals most cigarette manufacturers put into their product.

And Smushroom.. according to my calculations.. a pouch of tobacco is equivelent to about 10 packs of cigarettes, not 1.5. My pouch comes with 50 papers (that's 2 and 1/2 packs) and I always run out of papers way before I run out of tobacco.

i'm ashamed to say i only bum people for cigs since i DON'T want to own a whole pack... i know that the second i let the idea of actualy buying a whole pack i'll be hooked (as i probably already am) and that would not benefit me in any way! i'd rather smoke weed once a day for the smoking addiction and not for the stone then smoke a pack a day!

BUT i did buy a pack of drum rolling tobbaco when i was still at the army (and maybe a couple more when i got out... for the hash, though taking bong hits with rolling tobbaco is much more harsh on the trought (SP?)
and that made sure i wouldn't smoke too much cuz it took me a while to practice how to role a good cig (i kept thinking how many joints i'd role once i get out of the army)
i thought about buying some more becouse i'm getting sick of bumming cigs but i still prefer it over starting a dependency on tobbaco
(i smoke like one cig a day... even less... though i smoke a hooka at work)

anyway rolling cigs are much better though i'm not sure health wise...

plus, bali shag had a cool reward type program with something that was actually useful.

i was going for the cooler thing, but never got there..

haha.. sounds like you already have a dependency to tobacco.
I don't know how better they are health wise. It's a wash.
On one side, you aren't inhaling 990+ chemicals, 25 of which are known cancer-causing carcinogens.
On the other side, you are smoking filterless cigarettes, so you get more tar.
But if you use filters (as stated above - 100 for $1) Then I don't see this being a problem.
Although when it's all said and done. I would rather smoke filterless organic tobacco than filtered tobacco with deadly chemicals in it.
Once you smoke pure tobacco for a while, you can taste those nasty chemicals in regular cigarettes. It's like smoking for the first time all over again.

i don't know how physicaly addicted i am but i enjoy the act of smoking too much (it relates to good things in my expiriance which is a bad thing!)

i don't know what will happen once my situation changes it can go either way...
either i start growing my own weed and won't need tobbaco
or i'll cave in and be another stupid smoker?

smoking is bad!

that's what they say. but I enjoy it, so I'm going to keep doing it :smile:
I'm not going to worry about dying over it either.
IMO if you smoke, you should enjoy it. If you smoke and worrying about dying because of it, then you should not smoke.
at least I can say I'm not inhaling cyanide, arsenic, alpha-Trimethylbenzyl Alcohol, Phenylacetic Acid and whatnot in my cigarettes.
