What brand of cigarettes do you smoke?

I like Malboro light if I can afford them, but I'll settle for Richmond Superkings.

    How much do you pay for cigarettes?

    Marlboro Lights...
    and when I was living in the States Parliaments as well. I really like the filter on them- the way it's recessed into the cigarette. But I haven't seen them in the UK. Oh well.

    Alex, cigarettes here are about twice as expensive as in the US. I was paying about 3 bucks a pack this summer, and here you pay 4 pounds 40 for a pack of Marlboro (which is about $6.60). They do sell them in packs of ten though which are half the price and very cute. I'm in love with the cute boxes of 10... I'll miss them when I leave here <IMG alt="image" SRC="frown.gif" border="0">

    Emabassy when I can afford them. Lambert's when I'm skint.

    When I'm at work I usually smoke rollies and therefore I've almost always got a pouch of Cutters Choice.

    Used to smoke B&H, but switch to Drum light (rolling baccy) when i started getting it duty free.
    3 months later i can't stand the taste of ciggarettes, they just taste dry and thick.

    The advantage of this is I'm not smoking so much when i drive : rolling a ciggy while driving down the motorway takes more guts then i have. Theres a difference between "bad for my health" and "instantly terminal".

    It does mean that smoking becomes a little more of a ritual (pulling and unfolding the paper, getting the amount of tobbacco just right etc) which means i enjoy them a little more. Also makes J's much easier to roll.

    What can i say? If there's an tricky and long winded way of going about something quite simple i'll always find a good reason to take it <IMG alt="image" SRC="smile.gif" border="0">

    I'm definitely with you on that Drum Mild thing - rollies rule. I can't physically smoke ciggies now cos they're too big and make me feel sick. Was sitting in a pub chatting to some bloke recently and as i was pissed i accepted a fag he offered me. Totally gave myself away as a rolling regular. Guy noticed almost immediately that i was uncomfortable smoking it. Euch.

    I started off smoking marlboro medium in Brussels, have smoked B & H, Sovereign, B & H Superkings and Royals at different points.

    At the moment, I'm on DuMaurier Kings as they're nearly as yummy as British ciggies, but my fave's still B & H *homesick sigh*

    Never really been a smoker, don't see the point in it to be honest.
    ..but if I'm pissed I always end up smoking my mates fags! Why is this!?!
    ..and I don't mind the occasional joint now and then.. <IMG alt="image" SRC="wink.gif" border="0">

    Marlboro Reds and nothing else, I'm fairly picky about what I smoke unless I'm hammered.

    I also have an irrational hatred of Lambert & Butler for some reason.

    I don't smoke, but i've heard of B & H and Marlboro lights for between £1 and £2 a pack of 20 in certain circles <IMG alt="image" SRC="wink.gif" border="0">

    My old man used to work for P&O Cruises on the ships and he's come back evry two weeks for one day and bring as many fags as he could with him. The price depended where he bough them. Isreal was the cheapest though he rarely went there, at 200 for £3. Which is 30 pence per pack of 20. Then Gibralter was the next cheapest at £6 i think, and then Spain.

    He alway bought backB&H or Red Marlboro or these horrible things called Ducados. I used to make a packet at college selling them for £2.

    What pisses me off is that the Bensons are made here in Southampton by the biggest ciggerette producer in the world, BAT. They then get shipped out to Israel and are almost £4 cheaper per 20 there than they are here. Takes the piss doesn't it.

    My old man recently quit though so I can't get 'em any more. <IMG alt="image" SRC="frown.gif" border="0">
