Within the past couple of weeks, I have switched myself from smoking GPCs (Gods Perfect Cigarette... or Generic Pieces of Crap.. whichever you prefer
I had smoked those for about 15 years or so.
I ended up starting to make my own, using a brand of piping tobacco that is additive and aroma free (it's basically just pure tobacco leaf)
For the first few days, my body felt just as if I were going through MAJOR withdraws. Sweating like a pig, especially.
After the first couple days going through that (still smoking the same amount of cigarettes, mind you, just additive free at that point), I felt
INCREDIBLY better, and still do.
I firmly believe that I was going through withdrawl from the additives in the other brand. Now that I am freee from those, the cigs I make myself
(which is CONSIDERABLY cheaper, mind you lol) taste better, feel better, and seems, for lack of better words, healthier.
I know all this may sound subjective, but it's my story. Take it for what it's worth.
By the way, my wife, who is a non-smoker, finds that the cigs i smoke now (the ones im making) are EASY to tolerate and do not bother her one bit.
Whereas the others would make her feel pretty crummy if we were in a room with no way to ventilate out the smoke (I'd not smoke if that ended up
happening... would end up going outside, etc). These do not bother her at all, and she finds the smell of them pleasant and the smoke dissipates from
the air extremely fast compared to the others.
Anyhow.. There you go.
