Default Smoke Break

As an ex-smoker looking to make a comeback i'm curious to hear about new flavors or where your loyalties lie.

After moving around I settled on...



I always liked the feel of a stronger cig. What is the point of smoking a light if you can't even feel it.



Once I started taking my slight reprieve from smoking I made a deal with the devil...

So what are you puffing or chewing on? Cigars are welcome.

I smoke mostly Marlboro Menthol Lights, but I only smoke cigarettes when I'm drinking. I think they're repulsive otherwise, although I do now have more respect for people that smoke cigarettes. We all have our vices in life.

I'm more into cigars. I'll pretty much smoke any of them once. Being a broke ass college student I don't buy many of them but I enjoy most of the H. Upmann line as well as the mini Cohibas.

I've also developed somewhat of an affinity for hookah since coming to college. I really enjoy the different flavors of that tobacco so I'm considering taking up a pipe as well to smoke on occasion.

I've had some Chocolate tobacco before which I would recommend.

The hookah has a nice social atmosphere to go along with it. Grabbing one is a must for a better social activity that doesn't require booze and all the problems that come along with it.

A pipe Alex? How about a bubbler?

Damn dude... I am EXACTLY the same way... Menthol lights ONLY when I drink... otherwise I think I would puke if I smoked sober. Been smoking when I drink since I was 14... been doing that for 17 years and I NEVER, EVER once got addicted to cigarettes??? Weird...

Not weird, extremely lucky, though I am happy to be addicted to nicotine.

Well I guess I find it weird because that basically how me and all my friends started out in our teen years. We would only smoke when we drank... but then when I came home on R&R from the Navy a couple times (in my 20's) I would be hanging out with them and they were all amazed I still only smoked when I drank. They were all addicted and smoked fulltime ya know?

That is interesting, the fact that you have a military mind is definately a factor though. Do you dip?

Same. I've only been doing it for a few months but I've never once had a craving when I was sober. I can count on one hand the number I've smoked sober and it wasn't a pleasant experience.

I agree about the social aspect of hookah, that's definitely one of the things that drew me and my friends into it. We usually go once a week and just relax. Excellent atmosphere.

I'm not sure about the bubbler. I got into weed my first couple of months in college and got busted about two weeks ago. No charges have been filed yet so I took it as a sign that I should just stop. Having the bubbler around would probably tempt me too much.

Uh, no.

That means you need a better hiding spot.

What is it with you young kids and quitting at the first sign of trouble?

Haven't decided what I'm gonna do. Police only got half a gram and my pipe. I'm done at PSU for awhile. When I'm home for Thanksgiving is a different story. :thumbup:

(Reminisces about days of putting towels along the bottom of our door room door, and blowing the smoke out of a toilet paper tube stuffed with fabric softener).
