I smoke roll ups. I buy a 12 and a half gramm packet of tobacco every 2 days.
I have 2 babies in the house and only smoke outside, out the laundry room window or when I am taking the dog a walk.
My partner does likewise. We are light smokers, mid 30s in age.
We started this about 10 years ago, we used to smoke a 20 pack a day, each.
When I spoke a ciggy from a packet, it is WAY to strong...I just cant smoke a ciggy from a packet.
A roll up is very light, the brand I smoke is Golden Virgina Gold
This is what I smoke:
My Grandmother lived till she was 88 and SWORE blind rolling tobacco was the way to go, this is why my partner and I smoke roll ups. We use filter
tips also. Good ones.
I know a lot of people who smoke "roll your own" and a lot of them are way into their 60s and 70s.
My own father is 67 smokes a pouch "As above" a day. He walks 20 miles a day and is a VERY fit man.
He also swears by hand rolling.
People, like my other Grandmother, who died from smoking Benson and Hedges here in the UK died from lung cancer. My own mother is in her early 50s and
smokes Regal 20 packs, she has emphazima *BADLY*.
I am no expert, but it sure looks like handrolling, using your own filters is a damn sight better than packs.
Just my 2c
