Start with a pouch then, just to be sure. But in the day I rolled them and gobbled them down with no filter and a Marlboro Red tasted like a Pyramid
in comparison. Obama’s tax all tobacco policy killed them because no one was dropping $50 a can. But that super thin shag cut versus the fluff cut
of cheap tobacco was the game changer. Even McClintock was a shag cut (although wider) back then. About the same as American Spirit.
The Bali Shag blue always had a Virginia blend to keep it from being as dank as Drum. You can eventually become the tobacco equivalent of a wine snob
rolling your own and while I tried to avoid it, Bali Shag just kicked all ass hands down.
I was smoking in a smoking area at a
Hotel once, above me was a balcony
Also designated as a smoking area,
Beyond me was a covered pool i
Observed butts and burnholes
Where people on the balcony had
Been flicking them down there.
Even as a smoker i was disgusted at this,
Actually especially so!
I quit for a long time but went back to occasional smoking. I was oscillating between one cigarette a day to about 4.
Anyway about a month ago I had a scare because I went to play tennis and I had a little more trouble breathing than usual. It was obvious I had a
chest cold or something Of course I was fearing the current SARS-CoV-2 but after a month nothing really changed. Anyway during that time I
quit smoking for the most part. Recently I smoked a few days lightly but yesterday I had 3 or so and it brought back that feeling in my chest. Anyway
I'm not messing around man, I heard even light smoking or second hand smoke really compromises your lungs ability to fight off an infection.. Now is
not the time to smoke!
Oh I know this feeling, we'd be out smoking at work on break with one of those tall ash tray things right there.. I would constantly yell at people
who were just walking by it and flicking their smoke on the ground right next to it.. This is while we are being told our smoking rights were going
to be taken away to a smoke free property..
This right here is just plain straight up laziness and p***ed me off so much..
I just got over a pretty bad chest cold, body aches, slight fever.. It's impossible to not have the thought of the virus in the back of your head
lol.. I took it as every other cold I've had in my life. Lot's of fluid, vit c, nice hot soup, plenty of rest and sweating it out with sweats and a
sweatshirt on. Feel much better today but I'll admit smoking doesn't help in a tennis match
LOL that is a good way to keep em, had to do that at my last job when I was buying packs still, same few people who said they were quitting always
asking, heck some made more money than me.. Keep one with about 3 or 4 in there and always had a full pack in my lunchbox..
