I was just looking at the sites. Smoker's Outlet, Little Brown Smoke Shop, Pipes and Cigars.
I roll my own. I guess I have smoked about 150,000 hand rolled cigarettes. Mostly Tops, Bugler, Kite. Withe the tax increase I am going to have to be clever to avoid paying a bundle.
Two blends from D&R Tobacco remain shags. They are Ryback and Three Sails. Ryback is like Drum and Three sails is like Bali Shag (Red).
Anyway, for this month the credit card is maxed out. But will order some soon. I like hand rolled cigarettes. Take care.

Quit smoking or quit breathing.

Thanks for the info , op. As an amateur student of natural/holistic remedies I have come across a lot of information about , well everything really. I've spent tens of thousands of hours reading about herbs. I tell you this because what I have learned could save your life. Do a google search on Niacin. There are two kinds. The most common is non-flush Niacin. You don't want that. You want the regular kind. It is called Niacin and it has a flushing effect on the body. Literally, like when someone is embarassed or turned on or even sunburn there is a red tone to the skin if you are a lighter skinned person. This herb repairs lung damage, mate. It reverses what you have done to them within a four to six month period. U2u me if you would like more info about how to use it. I got the info from a book and it is illegal I think to post the author's Niacin remedy. Ask me about the dosage and the milligrams if you are interested. Niacin is a very potent herb and you can get sick if you take too much of it.
Also the Native Americans used to smoke something called Mullein. They used to smoke it mixed in with their tobacco. It has healing affects on the pulmonary system through increasing blood flow through the capillaries and it does something to those little hairs on your lungs so they don't get coated in tar. Tobacco was not as deadly when mixed with Mullein. I theorize that the Native Americans were less affected by the harmful effects of tobacco because of the mullein. Mullein can be taken in capsule form. The most potent form is made by the company Nature's Sunshine Products. (I do not work for NSP or make any money whatsoever from their company) And mullein will repare your lungs just the way Niacin will but it's safer. It will just take longer. The reason I've studied so much about it is because I am also a smoker. And when I am able to there is also something else I enjoy smoking. Which is why I know the little bit that I do about this stuff. To limit the damage that I'm doing. Hope that helps you, bro. And good job with quitting. Admirable.
