Anybody in yuropa collecting the warning images that they put on the packs few years ago? I'm wondering if I'm still missing any, I'll post photos if anyone's willing to compare.
There were times when I would smoke more just to not miss out, because at first it seemed like they would keep changing them. But now I haven't seen new ones for about a year almost, which makes buying cigarettes less fun.

Yeah, I'm collecting them. It's infantile but I'm doing it as a joke because I find this whole anti-smoking project even more infantile when EU has way more serious problems to deal with. Yeah, we won't do anything about economy but at least we'll put warning images on cigarette packs.

DIY ejuice and rebuildable atomizers with a mod is is the way to go. Coils cost less than $0.01 and juice is about $0.35 per 100 mL at 6 mg nicotine. For around $100 I have enough supplies to last 5 years at 15 mL a day.

Smoked 20 a day for 4 years, ruined my skin, my health, my lungs and my teeth, 3 years after quitting and doing an intensive excercise routine I'm still no where near as fit as I was before starting

Also wasted approximately 12k buying all those cigarettes, money that could have been used for far more enjoyable and/or useful things

Don't smoke, it doesn't make you look cool no matter how cool Humphrey Bogart looks doing it, and it will make every element of your life harder to manage

I've probably smoked 3 or 2 cigs per day on average for more than a decade (started in high-school), and I don't notice any changes that you mention, but I'm regularly lifting weights and go for long hikes. The only thing is that I'll feel a "tingling" sensation in my lungs after a night of heavy drinking and smoking, although it won't happen if I rehydrate before going to sleep.
I don't see anything wrong with smoking a cigarette in the evening, or in the morning along with coffee. It's a simple pleasure, there doesn't have to be anything more to it. But I also can't imagine consistently smoking a whole pack a day, I did that only once or twice when I was out drinking the whole night and it felt like shit.

If you can keep it moderate go ahead and enjoy it for what it is, the issue is most people are incapable of doing so, Cigarettes are about as addictive as Heroin and at least around here the things that tend to introduce people into smoking also tend to lead to heavy or continual smoking

Smoking a small amount like you do will absolutely do damage but not anywhere near as quickly as it does in a heavy smoker obviously, I didn't really "feel" effects for the 1st year and a bit but the damage was still occuring
Also consider that you're taking regular excercise which most people don't do, the mood and health uplift from excercise will outweigh the negative effect of mild tobacco use by enough that by compared to the average sedintary non-smoker you might look and feel better, but don't lose sight of the fact that you are making a trade off between the small pleasure of a cigarette with coffee and the inevitable health drawbacks, whatever they will happen to be in your case

And yeah a cigarette leaning against a railing looking out to sea or sat with a beer hiding from the rain outside a bar while waiting on the bus were the best, but the mornings short of breath and the social drawbacks made it not worth

>>10412
There is nothing spooked about disliking tobacco, its harm to buzz ratio is absurdly high, it smells awful and it is massively bad for your health
Smoking doesn't make someone a bad person but it is objectively bad for them, I am not making a moral judgement on your smoking, but don't blow off legitimate concern as le spooks

Anon, you're a poet.
But as you point out, it's not worth it.
I used to smoke,then I took up boxing. It's hard to box and smoke. After working on the heavy bag for a couple of minutes you feel like you want to leave your lungs behind on the floor.
A good trick to quit any bad habit is substitution.
Give yourself a different treat, instead of smoking.
I had a drive down to Brighton for work the other day. It was getting to twilight . Before starting to head back to London, instead of having a smoke looking out to sea I had a bag of chips.

used to be a heavy smoker, it was pall malls because they are the cheapest you can get without being totally disgusting. Moved on to juul but I was spending like $60 a week on pods so I finally got an E-cig kit and it's saved me a ton of money. I really do missing smoking actual tobacco but I can't even do it anymore. It makes me feel sick and the last time I did it I only go through a quarter of the cig. Hoping to eventually get bored of the e-cig and move on from this addiction

Depends on how I'm feeling, but my go to is Peter Stokkebye No. 93 "Amsterdam Shag" (pic related). I also enjoy Drum or better yet: Bali Shag.

For prerolls my two favorites are American Spirit blacks (don't care for the other spirits) and Turkish Royals. If I'm broke and still want prerolls for some reason I'll get Camel 99s. Occasionally I'll crave menthol and buy a pack of Newport 100s like the inner city lumpenprole I am.

I can't smoke weed anymore cause it would probably launch me onto a psychotic episode again. Pretty sad tbh, it was really fun when it didn't fuck me up.

I haven't smoked in a year but I basically kept myself to an average of like 10 cigs a month, sometimes less because I could go a few weeks in a row without smoking. I never got to a point where I smoked even q full pack in a week. But I was working out during that time. However even with my moderate use I used to get headaches and I would experience some mild withdrawal symptoms (a little bit dizzy for a day or two) that alone made me stop. I am not sure if I have quit permanently yet. But I have no cravings even when I'm drunk.

Weed is beautiful once I get myself right before the point of it being uncomfortable for me. Faps are amazing, but the munchies I get is pretty fucking annoying.

bored as shit so may as well talk about my thoughts on this here cause i have a few but its pretty banal bullshit not worth bothering anybody about irl

ive been at like 4-6 cigs a day over the past few years which started after a couple years of just bumming cigs occasionally when i was at bars or pool halls. the most i will ever smoke in a day is half a pack and ill feel disgusting from it, cant imagine going thru a pack a day. i do definitely get bad cravings after like 12 hours without nicotind. its a very bad habit and i know ultimately very likely to get me very sick but for now im not trying to beat myself up over it or "try" to quit in a half-ass way. i have a weightlifting routine, eat well, have good hygiene & am generally active, which doesnt offset the damage of course, its kind of just cope, but i dont see a reason to feel especially guilty or weak because of what is in daily life a relatively minor vice.

the thing is, i do genuinely enjoy smoking most of the time. people get so up in arms and obnoxious over the idea that people might actually enjoy doing something that has been a widely popular vice for a few hundred years now.

yes, it is bad for you and you should not start smoking. yes, it is addictive and very hard to stop once you've been smoking for a while. but i did not smoke a cigarette for the first time and immediately have nicotine goblins take control of my brain and lie to me about enjoying it. it took me 2 years of smoking occasionally as a treat, like once every 2-3 weekends, to start buying packs, and i started buying them after a bad family tragedy + working an especially shit job where it gave me something to look forward to at breaks. i liked the taste of tobacco and enjoyed the ritual of having a cigarette years before i ever bought a pack, let alone was as addicted as i am now. im not saying its not a stupid thing to start doing, or that it isnt very naive and stupid for me & ppl who started in similar ways to think they could be the exception of getting addicted. no argument there.

but why do people feel like they can be so openly elitist and obnoxious to people for smoking? if youre talking to a friend or family who refuses to quit despite age or health problems, or if somebody is being inconsiderate with where they're smoking, ok yeah put pressure on them, that's one thing. but people will walk down the street and see you smoking on your break and say, to themselves or people theyre with, "thats disgusting" "idk how anyone can do that to themselves", etc. you go out for a cigarette around a new group of people and chances are someone will say "you know thats bad for you, right?" gimme a fucking break, why be such a snob about it. if i have a bad day and smoke half a pack ill feel it and it feels bad, but watching the garbage tv people watch for 10 minutes makes me feel even worse than that and i dont harass people for consuming something stupid even tho its completely normal to "binge watch XD" absolute bottom barrel television for 6 hours a day. i dont even feel the desire to demean people for it, let alone like im entitled to call you a stupid sack of shit for it, but somehow so many people feel entitled to mock and lecture you if you smoke. doesnt really bother me that much, its not a big deal, which is part of why it's odd. who fucking cares? if you see someone who cant operate without drinking or someone whos clearly tweaking, that's sad. if you see someone who is old and sick and coughing and still chainsmoking, that's sad. maybe ill be that person one day, its definitely possible and will be because of bad decisions i made. but some random yuppie saying "i dont trust smokers" to someone they just met isnt out of concern for anybodys health, for some reason its just a socially acceptable way to demean people

Ok guys so I’ve never smoked before and am thinking about trying a pipe for the first time. I’ve looked up how to tamper it, light it and all. However I’ve read you have to get some pure tobacco that tastes good.

I was just wondering what does good pipe tobacco taste like? Also if I just do it like once will I get addicted to it because the tobacco (i have reasonably high selfcontrol), or is the addiction thing overrated?

drink tea or something instead is my actual advice, but like the other anon said youre just supposed to swish around pipe tobacco and cigars in ur mouth not inhale all the way. youre not gonna fuck yourself up by just trying it, even if you like it and start doing it it will take a long time to see bad effects if youre just smoking a pipe occasionally, but if you try it and like it theres a much bigger chance youll fuck yourself by starting to smoke other shit more frequently
