I smoked one a day for a summer, then a pack a week for an autumn, then a pack a day for the whole winter then my throat started feeling funny and I stopped buying them without even thinking about it really. Never had any cravings whatsoever, just quit CT after a year with no problems whatsoever. Now if I try and smoke one the taste disgusts me and I can't finish it. When people smoke around me I tend to try and avoid them until they're finished w their cig cause the smell is really offputting. While smoking them I fucking loved them though and constantly looked forward to one
I've been at it for a month now. Probabaly smoke a small pack or 2 every week- roughly. I have started to noticed it's not as good as the first week- losing that initial pleasure from when I started. Menthal smokes feel more rough compared to when I started now.

Addiction has already settled in. I get intruding thoughts ( cravings ). If I push them aside I can usually wait
been smoking for 7 years since I was 13. My first job was stressing me out so my manager offered me a cigarette and I took it and everything went down from there. I smonk unfiltered luckies and camels if I can get my hands on some filter-less camels. There really is nothing like staring out at the sky or a sunset or the moon while taking a long drag off a cigarette.

when you quit, remember the addiction is not about nico nico nicotine but about the meditation moment that you need to replace something with, you may not even die younger due smoking but you will stink and have a flu more often and 9001 other issues so I recommend quitting already, it's ofcourse not that bad to smoke one pack a year and being an tobacco autist than smoke two packs daily

I switched to pipe tobacco last month after 13 years of cigarettes..Was spending 7-8$ every 3-4 days for a pack of cigarettes but I spent $7 on a bag of tobacco around 5 weeks ago and still have over a third of it left..I've only had 2 cigarettes since switching and will only use cigs when I'm not at home from now on

Classic gif. Anyway, my cigarette story is that I've never smoked and the ones i've met that do usually want to stop or change to a vaporisator. I once asked a smoker why he smoked. His answer: to feel how it felt before he started the habit.
>17 yo feggit
>girl I fell for was smoking at the time
>wanted to connect with her so I started to go on smokes with her during breaks in school
>5 years later and I finnaly stoped smoking

It might look cool and aesthetic but it's a really expensive and bad habit... don't pick it up, people usually don't enjoy presence of someone who smells like an ashtray.
True.. but the other things kinda suck. Smell for example or the cost. Also your vocal cords and teeth ain't gonna restore.

They only heal if you don't smoke.
A cigarette's worth of tabacco fucks up your lungs for a long while.
its so fucking anoying was a smoker and quit because of the fucking coofing and money smoke a pack a day thats 135 euros a month thats serious money serious money
Whole family smokes. I never did. Always hated being around it. Smelling it, being exposed to it. Suddenly around 30 smoking was a huge turn on for me. Women who smoked always stood out. Hated the smell, hated the kissing and tasting it, yet somehow still couldn't get over the fact that I loved them for the habit. Vape was the best thing to ever happen. No nasty flavor, no lingering smells, and I still get high from fetishizing smoking.

I will never smoke, and will never vape.

New pipe smoker here. I didn't know there was a learning curve to it and am having the damnedest time getting the thing to light and stay lit.

Got any tips? I don't know how Gandalf makes it look so easy.
it seems most people in this thread are a lot young
not gonna advise you to stop smoking since you do whatever you want with your life but try to keep it low or you will soon be smoking a pack a day like me and besides fucking your lungs its expensive
yep. i smoke two cigs per day and its what i would recommend. you can cut down yourself.

Naww, I don't smoke weed anymore but I basically just treat it like smoking weed out of a pipe except taking really small hits with a lighter, giving myself a good 30-45 second break before taking another hit...Instead of taking 15 or so puffs off a cigarette once an hour I just take 5 small hits off the pipe every 30-45 minutes and don't really see a reason too try and keep it lit
Fuck I smoked Candian Classic Silvers for years. They were rough.
Get a corncob, if you're using a churchwarden or something memey. They're like $5. Mind how you tamp the tobacco; you should be able to inhale through it (unlit) pretty easily. You should have the bowl of the pipe half filled or so. Try to get it decently dry, you can do prelights to dry it out a little before your actual light. You will need to keep pulling on it now and then to keep it lit, but once you get into the groove you will understand better how to keep an ember going. Be sure to buy pipe tobacco, not just loose tobacco for handrolling cigarettes. Use matches over lighters; lighters can damage your pipe, unless you have a specific one or know what you're doing, and it's easier to put a match into the bowl and you won't inhale butane shit. Just be sure to let the striker portion of the match burn for a second before you use it.
You fucking idiot.

but hey at least i got to watch every episode of the Monogatari Series
also stopped smoking afterwards and i now drink even less than before
I was in highschool in the upper western corner of Washington State, very close to the canadian border.
My highschool wasn't more than about 200 kids.
I was an awkward kid from a nice gated community but somehow at 16 I found myself dating a redneck girl from an alcoholic whitetrash family.
She had 5 brothers, 4 older and they were the typical 6-pack abs cig smoking ne'er do wells. They were a few years older so I was afraid of them, especially since there were four of them. The little brother was something of a storm trooper for the clan, they'd send him out to steal fish from the nets that the natives set in the channels - shit like that.
Anyway, we were 16 and 15 and the brothers were 17-20. Well, every-fucking-one smoked at least a pack or two a day, smoking cigs was basically their passtime.

I remember sitting in their 1991 geo metro hatchback with the windows rolled completely up in the winter, smashed between two of her older brothers in the back seat - everyone smoking camel turkish golds. "A cig hotbox" they called it.

lots of fun stories with that hillbilly family, but they are the reason I started smoking as a teen. Later gave it up when I moved abroad.
Now i'm 36 and I don't smoke, but I do take huge bong rips.

I'll always remember turkish golds and sitting in that geo metro hotboxed by nicotine.

It's just a bad deal all-round. In hindsight it really did give me nothing and only took a toll on my wallet and health.

If I was you I'd quit while I still could, as much enjoyment as smoking provides you'll realize one day that you don't even get anything out of the nicotine due to tolerance and all you're doing is killing yourself slowly

But do what you want, idc
fucks your tastebuds too
Like other anon said, corncob is the way to go for beginners. Personally I always packed using 3 layer method, did a charring light for 3-5 seconds, let it go mostly out, then did the 'final' light with another few seconds. Lighting took longer and was more unreliable when I used matches so I usually used a butane lighter and was just careful not to burn my tobacco. Practice makes perfect.
One more thing, a rule that always worked for me when tamping was 'sipping' the pipe should take about as much effort as sipping soda through a straw.
9 seconds.

Be mindful of what brand tobacco you buy. Many people assume it is healthier than cigs, but the preservatives they put in pipe tobacco to keep it moist is actually much worse than cigs.
Natty pipe tobacco is pretty based though.

I have a bicuspid aortic valve so smoking really isn't the best for me.. I wish cigs weren't so harmful.
smoking is effay but fuck me it smells like shit and it doesn't even makes you high.
>it doesn't even makes you high.
correct it makes you alert, angry, and willing to work.

Weed is "nigger grass". When whites and asians do drugs they prefer nicotine, caffeine, amphetamine, and cocaine because they have some sort of brain and like to make it go faster.
i'd use caffeine at this point or cocaine.
I noticed the first bag I bought was fine, the tobacco was dry and the blend was just "regular" in a red bag..Still thought it was a bit harsh and wanted to go for a bit lighter smoke so bought the same brand but got the gold blend since it's supposed to be lighter but did notice it's moist compared to the red and not sure I like it that much
wow, a jew that gasses itself

Damn son, I wish I had more Grim Fandango to post but I don't, so ill share what I can about pipes.

When I bought my first pipe, there was a guy out the front of the shop smoking a pipe with his dog and he told me that "If you want to be a great pipe smoker, you should have started 20 years ago".

I laughed at the time but I know now that he meant that it can be really tricky in the begining, and you will take some time to figure out how to pack it, how to light it, how to keep it lit, how to pick the right tobaccos for what you like, and how to pick the right pipe for your needs.

All the other advice people have given is great (though take all advice with a grain of salt, even mine), and pipe smoking is the cheapest way to smoke, but at the end of the day you just have to try it and work it out for yourself.

My first year or so I had a lot of trouble and ended up wasting a lot of tobacco and far too many matches, untill one day things started to just sort of "click". Now I love collecting pipes and if it wasn't for the nights I spent with some good booze and a pipe out in my backyard I would have gone insane during lockdown.

Yup, I'm still a smoker inside.
You probably just have ulcers
Try Canadian chug smokes. The lights are like regular Canadian smokes, and the regulars are like huffing on a bead blaster. $35/carton for the menthols though, which are like inhaling a cool winter breeze. I'd post a picture of smokes, but it's not a .gif so I guess I'm not allowed to upload it.

Hmm. I kinda will someday probably lol. I would like to check out some reserves too, and try Goose Canadians. I hear indians got some goodies and you don't see dying people on the box- which by the way should be banned, it's disgusting and harassment

>Stated smoking out of boredom. I was repeatedly stuck in Vienna working on a temporary basis and everything was closed at the end of the day. Bought smokes from a vending machine because it was novel and I needed something to do in the evenings as I walked about. There was no internet available (just AOL) and I didn't speak German. Seemed to fill the void and it was relaxing and they were cheap (about $2/pack equivalent price) - I quit after a couple of years because a couple of puffs was enough to be relaxed and throwing away a mostly unused smoke seemed wasteful and I didn't like the smell on my hands when I ate.

Poor folk buy pipe tobacco for rolling cigs, it's really nasty. It's rare you find a good tasting brand that packs a cig well.

I really want a fucking cigarette right now. I made a pact with myself to only smoke twice per year on Christmas and on my birthday which are roughly 6 months apart. Sounds fair to me. 6 months 'till my next indulgence.

What's your poison of choice, fellas?
>American Spirit - Dark Green
I can't be fucked to drive out of state or county for Luckys but I might for my new pact.
Love it actually. Daily smoking is not doable for me after some days. I buy and smoke over a period of a couple days and then be done with it for a while.

Except for my 6 months in Japan. Cigs were 400 Yen, which is in the 3 something euro/dollar range. Loved smoking in Japan. Smoking inside establishments and on my balcony (not allowed, cat and mouse game with the building manager) were peak smoking aesthetic.

was able to do a marathon fine while smoking cigs and weed daily

With cigs now in the 7.70 euro range and realizing its not nice after a while of smoking, I decided I wont buy any starting this year, except during LSD trips.

The little breaks every 1-2 hours were nice, but get soulless after a while. More fun with friends.

Did some messed up and borderline junkie things when I was younger and didnt want to buy a pack tho holy shit.

Honestly I've found that smoking the tobacco from a pipe even unfiltered tastes better than pretty much any cig I've ever had..Also bonus points for not making your fingers smell..I used to have a habit of washing my hands with soap and rinsing my mouth out with water after every cig but when using a pipe I don't do anything after smoking (cept maybe take a drink of something nearby)

You can do it, too. Break free from that mental prison.
How long does it take to quit? I smoked for 2 months straight. Haven't smoked in 2 days and I'm constantly thinking about a smoke, how ever I am noticing a steady reduction in urges.

Has anyone quit successfully? Did you eventually stop caring for nicotine and re wire your brain back to what it was?

How long did it take for you?
When I switched from cigarettes to vaping, I realized pretty fast that it's not nicotine that my body craves but the ritual of dropping everything you're doing at the moment and just to remove yourself from reality for 5 minutes.

I started with 18mg of nicotine in my vape-liquid which was absolutely fine in the beginning but already 1.5 weeks later it just felt too strong. It felt unpleasant to inhale and my body gave me the feeling of "I think it's enough" after only 3 hits. So I reduced it to 12mg and everything was fine again. Took another 3 weeks and the thing started all over again. In the end it only took 5 months to go from 18mg to 3mg and I didn't do it because I wanted to, I did it because my body told me to do it.
And if your body starts to reject the daily nicotine dose all by itself, then no, there is no NICOTINE-addiction going on.

You're addicted to the 5 minutes of peace and of course you'll only take them in a socially acceptable manner:
>Guys, I have to take my mind away from this work-stuff for 5 minutes, brb
and you're fired.
>Guys, I'll have a quick smoke, brb
that's OK.

nicotine is addictive substance. but yes, that moment of serenity along with the smoke is also really nice, after a meal or when things in your day are going rough.

I don't ever want to touch a vape lulz. they smell bad im and i can't even handle that much, i'd probably throw up.

I recently got back into smoking but probably will quit soon, anyway here's my story on how I started. It happened 1 year ago around this time

>she's a smoker
>make nothing of it
>drink alcohol and have fun all night
>go to her place

>"can I have one of those?"
>"sure, didn't know you smoked"
>"I'don't, just wanted to try one"
>enjoy a smoke after sex
>start smoking regularly after that
>break up with girl
>still smoking
>quit cold turkey after 6 months
as an american, probably the single biggest piece of culture shock in japan for me was that EVERYONE smokes. in bars, restaurants, wherever. obviously we have smokers here but it's basically not allowed indoors anywhere except your home.

>takes me under her whore wing, go to parties for the first time and get glammed up and into feminine clothing/styles.
>on eve on 21st birthday decide to smoke one of her fancy spiced cigs, some euro brand. Just for the heck of it. Wanted to feel grown, and kinda hoped it would deepen my silly baby voice. (Never did, lol)
>Smoked that cig and ended up puking, it was too strong and I puffed too quickly.
>Decide to pick up a variety at the gas station, menthols and cloved. Decide I like the really minty menthols and the cloves are nice but never smoke the whole things at one go.

good job you big dumb fucking idiot
t. been smoking for 12 years
Is there a way to smoke cigarettes without getting thoroughly addicted?
If I smoke 3 cigarettes a week, for example, will I be able to quit whenever I want? If not, what about 1 or 2 cigarettes a week?
Try Belmonts, they're expensive but taste way better than pall malls and classics.
This is the only comfy smoking aesthetic. Smoking should be outright illegal for women.

I stopped but fuck sometimes i really miss that first drag.

sit on your porch in autumn at 3am and smoke you really have time to enjoy it.
What are you guys thoughts on American Spirit full flavor (light blue pack?)

It's hard for me to find this brand but this seems interesting enough that I want to try it.

Also, should I get cigs or RYO?

>>Med school stress
>>Nicotine boost during study only
>>Pack could last 3 months, trying to not make it a habbit
>noooo I must decorate some terms
>aaaaah save me I'm going insane
>never smoked before
>get job

>eventually wonder whats so appealing about smoking
>go to gas station and nervously buy lighter and pack of winston lights
>drive to a park & light up
>smoke a few other times to relax or just try different cigs
>stopped smoking because Im an alkie & I don't need another vice
what is this from?
since you have smoked for 2 months and not 2 years thats a good starting point. If you want to kick this in the butt right now I suggest going on the patch now and quit smoking cold turkey. If you don't succeed no problem keep trying.

For me it took 5 years to quit. I smoked 1-2 cigs a day for a few years but went up to half a pack a day during a rough time in my life. I decided to quite and I took up vaping, which i do not recommend and you will vape way more nicotine than you ever smoked. I then switched to lozenges/gum which are easier to moderate but but once again still alot of nicotine a day and no real plan to cut down/quit. Finally I switched to patches which are great since the nicotine hit is provided steadily throughout the day instead on in big jumps like other methods.
