Yeah cigarettes suck! Tied it twice, just for the hell of it, and decided to never try them again. Terrible taste, smell, and way too harsh for my liking. Hookah is by far the better choice...

Decent pipes and cigars can be nice if you know how to smoke properly. Forget inhaling as it should all be about taste anyway.
Not true, man. You can find some astonishingly high-quality, super-premium cigarettes on the market. And you'll pay through the nose for them, too. Nat Sherman is probably the most common brand in that category.

I wish I NEVER started smoking when I was younger, I did it to try to fit in ... It is very addicting and hard to quit! I tried countless times! Finally I quit ... 29Sept06 and won't ever pick up another cigarette again!

DON'T Start, it is a terrible habit and wayyyy to convenient to smoke. It makes you feel terrible and even though you feel like shyt, you still do it (ADDICTION!)

when i smoked and when i smoked menthol cigs i smoke marlboro smoothes. those thing tasted like you where smoking a candy cane. those actually tasted good. the down side was after smoking them for a while you would wake up hacking.

I've never inhaled a cig... too sketchy. I'm not looking for a buzz.

American Spirit Menthols would be what i would smoke if i was a smoker.

used to smoke camel filter, gives me a quicker buzz, but after a while it'll start slowin you down, i felt the difference cuz i sometimes jog... had stopped for a while, but smoked a couple yesterday since im all out of shisha and it was my last final exam >,<

overall, if you have hookah, you shouldnt even think about cigs

Default Re: Cigarettes

you dont smoke them for the thick smoke. you smoke them because the nicotine delivery is a big amount in a short period of time.

i dont smoke cigarettes, only have a few times in my life. After the 3rd time they get much less harsh. However they never made me feel really good because of personality. I just happen to be one of the lucky ones who doesn't get hit by stress or bad days or any of that. The worst part, and probably the main reason i hate cigarettes is because it makes your fingers smell like complete and utter garbage and i cant stand that smell.

Can't smoke anything American anymore aside from shisha.

The addiction is the high nicotine and the convenience of smoking (you can light up a cig at break, in th car, wherever) Even though it made me feel like shyt .. I still found myself waking up and having my morning cigarette, it was the most disgusting habit and is a nasty product! I am sooo glad I finally quit after smoking for 20 years ... I look back at it now and think I was an idiot!

Hookah, I would not consider myself addicted to it ... for instance last night, I had a stressful day ... after work when I got home I was working on ZVTs computer (crashed HD) and watching some TV. I got some new shisha I can't wait to try! It would have been the perfect time to setup the hookah, I didn't setup the hookah though, because I got involved in what I was doing. I enjoy hookah when I want to, not when my body tells me to.

If I still smoked cigarettes, I probably would have smoked about 10 that evening, outta boredom of waiting for files to load or drivers to download ...

Point is ... cigarettes are VERY addicting and NASTY!
Hookah is enjoyable and a treat and not addicting to me .. my opinion

I've been smoking cigarettes for 5 years now and I consider myself a professional quitter. I think I've tried 12 times i got 3 months the last time but i had 2 family members and a really close friend die in a month and just picked them up again. I've been going for 6 months now and i hate it but I am addicted. I'll try again at some point but in my industry, not smoking is weird.

i always knew i needed to quit smoking cig. the two things that did it for me where, when i use to live in michigan i could play a full game of basketball with my friends no problem, then i moved to south carolina where all my new friends smoked cigs so i started smoking even more and on a more regular basis. but this past december i went home for the holidays and me and my friends went up to the YMCA to play a pickup game and i couldn't even last like the first 5 points in a one on one game. and thats what did it for me.

and the fact that my mom found out and was like i am not mad because i know your 18 i am just disappointed (you know what its like, you rather your parents be so pissed off at you. then say they are disappointed, that just drives the knife through the heart)

I feel bad when my parents smell that I was smoking cigars or see me smoking shisha, because they dont say much anymore but they give this dissappointed look. But in the end I dont give a shit because I like smoking
For some reason though they said they would kill me if I smoked cigarettes
