what im surprised no one has mentioned yet is why dont you switch to a brand that is trying to get a piece of SB's market share. Most of SB's competitors are more reasonably priced. Layalina kinda looks like starbuzz in the tin...and their black grape is freekin awesome! JM's has tried to mimic some of starbuzz's flavors (blue mist, citrus mist) and has gotten some rave reviews.

you dont have to make a drastic switch, just one that makes a little more sense in the wallet.

well i guess the whole lying to my gf would be a problem...so i think im just gonna brain wash her to bring her into the nakhla light. and i will definately introduce her to some other flavors and hopefully we can break the attachment to SB. AF is also a good choice because it gives off good smoke and no buzz.


but thanks for all the help guys! one thing about this place is youre GUARENTEED a response.

JM's is a pretty good alternative, and has much fewer stems than SB.

Ahh the ole give em what they want until you formulate a full proof plan routine. I'd say just tell your girlfriend the truth, you don't want to support her high priced habits if you can't enjoy them with her. Offer some alternatives such as - Al Fakher, Certain Nakhla with something in the base to mellow it out, your c***, getting the cheaper "knock off" brands of starbuzz [skyzz skybuzz]. When she refuses these things and gets angry at you, revert back to the ole give em what they want until you formulate a full proof plan routine, and try again later.

I can't believe this hasn't been suggested yet, but:

1) Show her a few websites that sell SB
2) Tell her to pick the site and flavor(s) she likes
3) Tell her to take out her own damn credit card and buy it
4) ...
5) Hope you get to at least sleep on the couch


Seriously though, I'll bet her tastes would change a bit if she had to pay for it!
[EDIT: Dammit - jonz got it in while I was typing, lol!



As an alternative, you could try bringing in some JMs - it's considerably less expensive.

You can't get a decent deal on SB for two reasons: 1) It's sugary, fake tasting crap so it's objective value is about zero. 2) Lots of people love sugary, fake tasting crap proving that you can't lose money under estimating the public's tastes so the incentive for the retailers and SB is keep on ripping you off.

I'd say you have three sensible, yes I know love is not sensible, choices:
1) Teach your girl friend to smoke in such a way that getting a buzz just doesn't happen no matter what you smoke. That is what I do and it works.
2) Get a girl friend with better tastes or one that will pay for her own SB.
3) Get her to try stuff that is actually worth smoking. One way to do that is to mix in washed, candied crap with good stuff and reduce the crap component with with time so as to ween her off it.
