Union Station Chicago, $16.00 a pack.
I smoked Camel, loved them but you cannot get them in the UK anymore.
Now a packet of Marlborro Red is £12 I suppose about $14.
I keep saying I am going to give up, then someone lectures me on the subject! Nothing will keep me smoking like being told not too!
I smoked cigarettes for 15 years and quit 40 years ago. Was up to 3 packs a day. I quit because of severe bronchitis. I remember waking up every day and hacking up brown sh*** for about a week or so after I quit.
I think it depends on how much. I smoked way too much.
WOW!! That is 'spendy'
Have never smoked. Don't know anyone who smokes apart from my next door neighbour .. who's a chain smoker :/
It's a stupid habit. I smelled bad, my teeth were yellow, I hated the smell and I flicked ashes all over. I used the patch to quit. I'm glad that I did.
I'm small and smoked 2 packs a day when I was a smoker. Heavy chronic bronchitis. When I went to 1 pack I felt healthy. Problem is....Never could stay at one pack.
I really despise people who want to tell other people how they should live. Smokers have been treated really badly IMO and it's legal. I have always been all about freedom, as long as you're not violating someone else's rights. The sheer audacity of pot smokers I know expecting me to jump on their freedom train, after the way I've been treated for wanting to smoke cigarettes disgusts me.
I use 'snus' which is a Swedish form of tobacco you put under your lip (currently, there is no research showing any negative effects of this product, yet it is under attack by the EU). I can go months without it and only use it as a form of "relaxation product".
During summer, I will smoke a few ciggies because I like to have one as I ponder on life or chill with my mates.
To me, tobacco is a fantastic product that, if you are a mental adult with no issues, won't kill you and that probably is less dangerous than Coke and Skittles. Here in Europe, there is a serious "War on Tobacco" going on and I actually think it might be completely illegalised in the future.
Smoking kills, but so does guardianship.
I quit smoking 2 years ago. Glad I did. But I still hangout with my friends when they smoke. I hate the reputation smokers have. Who's business is it if someone wants to chief a lung dart?
The problem is that it's hard to smoke cigarettes without violating someone else's rights. Smoke travels through the air. That said, as long as I (or my kids) don't have to go through the smoke, please feel free to smoke. Smoke in your own home or outside, just don't do it where I pay people to prepare my food.
I smoke a cigar or a pipe less than 3 times a year. Once my sick wife dies I going to smoke my pipe a 3 times a week or so.
gosh .. a lot of smokers and ex smokers here. seems odd, when you live in a country which doesn't have many of either.
You used nicorette for three years, any side effects? I'm on round two of trying to kick nicotine. Tried for about a month, a year and a half ago. I may be wrong, but the gum seemed to irritate my mouth a bit, seems to be doing so now.
I didn't notice any. I tried the patches but had some skin irritation.
Tried a lower dose of the gum? I think I started on 4s but changed down to 2s. no mouth problems.
I used to chew but it made my sensitive tummy ache too much. Smoked a few ciggies, pipes, and cigars back in the day as well.
But I'm old now and am a confirmed teetotaler. No tobacco, alcohol, or less than legal stuff for me for the rest of my life.

Taken the pledge huh?
I too am old, but I can't abandon the demon grape.
What's a tummy? ( )
