    NOTE: I know that smoking is terrible for you, I've heard it all before from everyone that isn't smoking so please don't flame this thread with anti-smoking arguments, it's obnoxious

    I've been smoking for a while now and for the most part I enjoy it, but the thing really kills me about it is the amount of money I give to these companies that I could give a fuck about. The 7 dollars a pack for American Spirits (not used in animal testing btw, one of the few brands that doesn't) really kills my wallet.

    I just wanted to know if there was any alternatives to buying these big brand capitalist death sticks.
    thanks in advance. :D
    (and growing my own tobacco isn't really an option)

    Don't they have those electric ones, it's worth looking into maybe if it's costing you so much. I heard however that there is some controversy behind them, you may also want to research that too. If that doesn't float your boat id say cut back on the Cigs by getting a Hukkah for home-smoking, and/ or pre rolling cigs for when you go out, you'll save a ton and you wont be supporting the big boys and all the shit they put in it.


    hope this helps... Nick.

    Stop smoking. That's the alternative. The only argument that convicted me to stop smoking is because i knew i was funding the multinationals i hate. And we all know that cigarette compagnies are the worst multinationals and the biggest liars. (watch the documentary "TOBACCO - THE CONSPIRATION")

    But if you really don't want to stop smoking, then buy indian cigarettes. Those are tax free and WAAAYYY cheaper. In canada you can get a cartoon of 200 cigarettes for 10$-15$ and multinational cigarettes like Export A sells for like 75$

    Also when buying cigarettes don't forget that over 75% of the price is taxes that goes right in the pocket of the government. You are funding the 2 things you hate the most.

    I don't smoke, but i've heard that you can often get some less capitalistic companies tobacco if you roll it yourself. Often you can get from homegrowers and everything.
    - It's still a lot of money right into the pockets of the state, so it's best if you can find some home-growers or something and buy it from them. I don't know how many grow their own, it's not like with weed (which i don't smoke either) because it's legal.

    I started smoking cigarettes a while ago, but sparingly, around twice a week. As much as I hate funding multinational companies, they're still cheap, around a dollar for a pack of Gauloise cigarettes, but I've been smoking an Argile (Arg-eelé) (AKA a hookah) for a couple of years which is very common around here, it has an alluring taste/smell to it but it damages your health way more than a cigarette, it is said that one puff is equal to around a packet of cigarettes.

    Anyway, I could suggest an Argile which would limit you from buying from corporations since packs are pretty large or you can get your own, tobacco is pretty cheap for it 3$ or so for a pack (dunno about prices abroad), tastes better, nice for late-night visits, and fun to prepare.

    i havent had a smoke in about a year and how ever long ago december was. i woke up one morning hung over as fuck and said i was never smoking another smoke ever again. and boom never have to this day! pretty much people gotta realise that they have the power to fight their brain. i say fight your brain since thats pretty much what you need to do. when trying to quite you cant lisen to that little fucker. ghe will make up reasons and excuses to smoke but you just gotta stay strong and tell him to shut the fuck up. then ussuly i would get anxiety and cold sweats and all that as punishment from my brain bujt eventualy i won and i dont smoke. people just gotta stop being bitches and not lisen to what their brain tells them. after that you have total control of what your doing

    Agreed. Cigarettes are meaningless deathsticks. Stop paying for your own death. And this guy only looks cool because i imagine that he is smoking some ganja :ecouteurs: this guy is just trying way to hard to look cool :ecouteurs:

    Exactly and even worse, he probably wears white socks every day. That can't be healthy.

    Yup. And it has been proven by serious scientific studies that weed is less damagable for health than cigarettes or alcohol.

    Hmm, I've been thinking about this a lot myself. I really really wish that there was a good alternative to cigarettes. I don't smoke much right now, just socially, so I guess I'll just not get started until I have a good alternative. :p

    I smoked for seven years so i feel you're pain. I just couldn't lie to myself anymore. You're giving yourself cancer. Not to mention, incresing likelihood of hypertension, obesity, diabetes, sexual dysfunction, ans a number of other illnesses. How much do you wanna pay to get sick and die early? I think the course of action is clear.

    What if you smoke both? Lol.

    Yeh, I've been trying to quit for forever. It's really hard. Especially when you've been smoking around a pack a day since 14. Makes quitting cold turkey like chinese water torture or some shit.

    Don't you have anything like snus? That you put under your upper lip. I've heard it's a swedish thing but it sounds strange to me if it wouldn't exist everywhere. It's not healthy at all but better then cigarettes. Still shitty companies but you can buy ingredients and put it together yourself wich is much cheaper.

    not only is smoking disgusting, it is also disrespectful to others. mothers i see smoking while pushing a baby cart, or driving with children makes me want to knock them out, not to mention people who smoke in doors and make everyone in their vicinity smell like smoke. Or p[eople in my apartment complex who smoke and it all comes into my apratment, :p it is so gross. If you want to pay big tobacco to slowly kill you go for it, but have a little respect for those around.
