Is that what is making them more delicious than usual?


I have yet to find any plastic in my cigarettes but I'll keep an eye open. I'm in NYC (in case you're trying to pin down where the cigarettes with plastic bits are found).

There is a multi million black market trade in Australia where people try to bring tabaco into the country.
Its possible you smoke sigarets, thats contaminated with plastic, herbicides and hell knows what else. They make the packages, paper and filters in Australia and make a lot of money, mostly Asian gangs.

Now, how do I know that? Saw a TV serie called Borderpatrol Australia a few days back.
Good reason to stop smoking....

so about 10 months or so ago, one of my friends tore apart a filter off a camel infused and found a little blue bead. then started tearing apart other filters and didnt find them.

we figured it had something to do with the flavor in the cig. but decided that, if we were already smoking, a little plastic bead wouldn't hurt us anymore than say the rat poison in it.

but i have since quit..the hardest 3 months of my life...combined with quitting smoking other things, and cutting back on drinking, it's hard to do all of that at the same time. but made it thru...go me!

but back to topic, here in the states i have found them, but only in camel brand.

I can't recall ever finding any plastic in a cigarette when I smoked but I always found it odd that every once in a while I'd light a cigarette and it would taste like chemicals. I always put those ones out and would smoke a different one.

it looks like this is a common problem, I think this needs to be investigated more, as to what the plastics are. If you find some please put them aside in a baggie and if possible find out what they are if you have the resources available.

That's cool! Guess I'll keep that container of nicotine lozenges I used to quit smoking handy just in case.


It may be possible to reduce lethality by blocking the cytokine storm with nicotine. There are numerous means of administering nicotine and research will need to be done to determine which if any of these approaches is effective in the treatment of severe cases of the current H1N1 flu. Smoking as a source of nicotine is probably unwise, because the other toxic components compromise the immune system and make it more vulnerable to flu infection.

I'm pretty sure plastic is the least of my worries when in comes to my smokes.

A little thing called Benzene and Cyanide are much deadly.

BUT heres something I heard also on ATS, apparently the fluid deposited on the lungs can help prevent infection if you smoke, as the virus cant latch on as easily so I have heard. You can be prone to getting illnesses yes but I am talking in regards to specifically h1n1, I highly reccomend the electronic cigarettes as they have no tar, or chemicals besides nicotine.

I smoke as it reduced the inflamation on my intestines due to my celiac disease.

I rip open several cigs a day (don't ask why
) and I have so far not found plastic inside. But over the years it seems the "cut" has become much rougher making me wonder sometimes if they really care what they put in the cigs at the factories (like weeds and other non-tobacco plants)
