eas81: FrancoFile: I knew a girl who was a 'casual' smoker.  She collected empty packs of menthol cigarettes.

She transferred regular cigs into the menthol packs; when someone tried to bum a smoke from her, they'd see the menthol pack and then say "no thanks".

Back in the day when I was broke everyone used to smoke lights so I would smoke menthols then everyone moved to smoking menthols so I moved to lights would get the same response.

/Smokes lights
//When out and have to bum one will smoke anything
///beggers can't be choosers.

Heh i used to keep two packs on me in college, Mine and my bum pack. The bum pack was the cheapest menthols I could find. And hardly anybody ever bummed 'em from me. That pack would last for weeks sometimes. Saved a ton of money from the moochers this way.

If he keeps them in a humidor they would probably be alright.

What I was thinking.

My wife smokes menthols, so I'm really getting a cough out of these replies.

//she doesn't smoke in the house or my car. Usually.
///couldn't you just light up a regular and put a Hall's cough drop in your mouth?

Menthols are amazing. I'm not a big smoker (more a toker) and my wife and i pick wild mint to use for tea... Fun fact -- grinding a bit of dried mint into your smoke mix makes it freaking keen menthol. Screw smokeing a regualar with a cough drop -- its like smokeing the cough drop itself. Its like sucking in a nice icey minty blast.

Menthol joints are the best. Barring that mixing your weed with cherry flavored cigars is also keen. I'm drying bear berry and willow bark and red osier dogwood bark (from new green stems not old gross rough stuff.) to try adding to my smokeing mix... Cause why not right? Native americans smoked allot more jazz than tobacco... Blueberry leaves -- they would boil their tobacco with blueberry leaves to make filler...

And as for stale smokes... Take your smoke be it cigs or cigars and set them on a high shelf in the bathroom. Have a hot shower. Like really long and really hot. shave your balls, bang your lady whatever. Long and hot. The steam will revitalize your smokes.

I quit for the summer... i felt some time off would be not a bad thing... Didn't have a problem quitting cold turkey -- but then its easy when you have no contact with the outside world...

Heck, in the immediate aftermath of WW2, American cigarettes were the de facto currency of Europe.  He probably has a good memory.

/Have cut back A LOT.  Going to make concerted effort to quit...soon.

ecig, man. Learn to refill they carts yourself.

Me too as of recently.  They went over $7 a pack and that's my limit.  I'm down to 1/2 a pack from a pack a day.  I just need the real thing in the morning with my coffee, and at night with a cocktail.  I'll get there though.

Maybe switch to little cigars.  The idea being to move the addiction onto something else.

Or do this:

The idea is to quit all together, and I like to play tennis.  Nothing against running, but I need to be doing something while running around.

Classic addict behavior X 10 million.

Every smoker has a couple of emergency heaters stuck in a drawer in his house and office 'just in case'.

Including me.

I thought cigarettes CAUSE cancer?  How come this guy didn't die already of cancer?
Huh? Huh??

Just like my grandfather who smoked until he was 70, and quit when he said "I'm not
paying no g** d*** 75 cents a pack for cigarettes!  He lived to be 99 years old without
any cancer.
Unless you are genetically predisposed for cancer, cigarettes DO NOT cause cancer!
