Smokers...whaddya smoke?
Do you change brands ever?

I went from Marlboro Reds, to Camel Lights, to a brief lung hacking affair with Chesterfields, to Marlboro Lights, to Doral Lights.

1. A hookah!
with honey or strawberry shisha tobacco. Gave up the cigarrettes 4 years ago, because they almost killed me.

2. Marlboro Mediums right now,
was lights for awhile. Before that, it was reds, with a brief run of American Spirit Filters thrown in for good measure. I also every now and again go on a roll-my-own thing in vain attempts to quit, or at least taper, and usually smoke (retch) Bugler then.

24. Marlboro mediums is the way to go
"My smoke is too harsh" says Red smoker
"My smoke is too light" says Lite smoker
"My smoke is just right" says Medium smoker

10. I feel like I should be getting paid -

I'm practically their spokesperson! :)

I could have NEVER stopped smoking cigarettes without Zyban. With Zyban, it was absolute cake. CAKE.

18. Nope.

A real bastard case of dry mouth, and a brief period of a subtle "weird" feeling. Both gone after about 2 weeks.

My personality didn't change at all either.

I have heard some people say they had problems with it - but I know a handful of people personally that feel the same as I do. It's the magic pill in my world.

7. Marlboro Reds...
I did smoke Marlboro Lights for a time, but I read that the difference between those and Reds is practically nothing...and besides, with Reds I get the cool yellow filter.

14. Ha, once I get to school in the AM...
right off the train, I light up...it's nice.

And yes, my name is a reference to Placebo, they're my favourite band, and I am definitely an obsessed fanatic. :)

Funny you should ask
I've been makin' my own at times but I usually smoke Marlboro reds.

However, I finally broke down and bought some Nicorette tonight and I'm going to start chewing it tomorrow in an attempt to cut down. I won't even try going cold turkey.

17. I went cold turkey once
After my sister told me that she and her husband were quitting too... the next time I saw them, they were both smoking up a storm! Talk about a lame excuse for me to start smoking again! Them bastids!

Ms. Frugal here, for the cost of one carton of "name brands", I can do it myself and get 4 cartons worth.

11. I gave up cigarettes but still occasionally smoke a cigar or cigarillo
But when I smoked the normal was American Spirits or for a change English Silk Cuts in the gold or Irish Majors.

21. I roll my own
I use a combo of Norwegian Shag and Virginia light tobacco. Trying some McClintock tobacco next.

Quitting smoking is easy, I've done it a million times. (stole that from Mark Twain) :)

22. Marlboro Menthol Lights for the past 7 years
I started out smoking Marlboro Reds, went to Marlboro Lights, then someone got me hooked on menthol cigs and I smoked Newport for a short period of time. After developing a nice cough from the Newports I swithched to Marlboro Menthol Light. I still cough every once in a while, but it's not near as bad as when I was smoking the Newports.

27. Cloves are nasty
I can't stand to smoke them or the smell of someone else smoking them.

33. Marlboro Ultra Light Menthol 100s
Takes the clerks in the convenience stores five minutes to find 'em. "Nope, not those. Two slots to the right! No. To the RIGHT, dammit."

I used to smoke Benson & Hedges Deluxe Ultra Light Menthol 100s but (a) they went to over $3.50 a pack, and (b) the name took too long to tell the clerk at the convenience store.
