What did you smoke?



  • DuMaurier regular for the longest time then I went from those to DM Light, Extra Light, then Ultra Light. Then when it got too expensive I started going to the native reserve about 15 minutes away to buy bags of rollies which were $12-$15 for a carton's worth of smokes. Not exactly high quality stuff. Not long after that I gave up lighting my tobacco and started on the snus/dip/snuff.

    Started with Silk Cut filters (purple) then Marlboro lights, gaulioses blondes and if I could ever get them from abroad parliament lights and l&m lights. I also remember being able to get majors when I was at school, they used to pack a punch! Park drive too when you were low on cash.

    Disque Bleu or Gauloise Filters when I could get them, Tor Turkish or Oriental when I could afford them and Marlboro Red for the rest of the time. Before those nasty people in Brussels effectively banned them I used to love unfiltered Turkish cigarettes. Sweet Afton were nice, too, but very difficult to get. Mind you, not had a cigarette at all in about 11 years...

    A really long time i smoked "anadolu", it's a turkish-american blend which is made by jti.
    Later on it has changed into some fabricated turd. And i switched around Camel, Chesterfield red and Marlboro lights.
    edit: These were only the fabricated ones, i usually smoked ryo. Old holborn yellow, without filtertips, with ocb.
  • I've never been a regular smoker, but when I smoked it was red Luckies, red Marlboro or handrolled.
  • When I smoked cigs and had money I smoked Camel Filters and an occasional American Spirit Perique pack. Once the budget got tight I rolled or injected my own using whatever tobacco I could afford.
  • Camel Lights (Blue)

    Rolling&Pipe tobaccos, Manitou green organic, American Spirit red, Pielroja, Old Holborn blue. And I was fill the pipe with Capstan flake blue, Rattrays Brown Clunee/Red Rapparee, Samuel Gawith Best brown/Full Virginia flake/Sams flake/Skiff mixture, Sillems Black, Solani Aged Burley flake/Silver flake 660. W.O.Larsen 1864/Signature. McClelland all the Grand Orientals.
  • Red Chesterfield. If not available, then L&M red. I remember my friend, who was couple of years older than me, to occasionally speak about his old smoking habit. He had then quit, but everytime someone spoke about cigs, he said: "if you are going to smoke, smoke red Chesterfield."
  • I rotated in periods between Camel's, Lucky Strike's and Parliament's. When I went out I would treat myself to menthols of any kind, even though I never in europe found the menthol I learned to love from my school days with americans: Kools and Newports.
  • Marlboro Red, Lucky Strike Red and Gudang Garam
  • progressing as prices went up: kools...pall mall menthol...cheapest-currently exeter when i smoke. $20 a carton

    Marlboro Lights were my regular brand or Marlboro Reds when I wanted to feel like a real man.
  • @SnuffySnuff I know this is kind of stupid,however, never a fan of Reds but always was a fan of their marketing. Marlboro Man was the Man!
  • Marlboro Red, Dunhill Red, and Prince when I lived in Sweden.
  • Ha! Got back to smokes while drinking, which is often, and sticking to rollies: Amber Leaf is really lovely tobacco. Don't know if it's available outside Ireland and UK.

    @AllanH If I was rolling my own I always preferred Golden Virginia, Drum or Gauloise rolling tobacco (if I could get it). I think Amber Leaf didn't turn up until after I stopped. How does it compare to my old favourites?

    Amber Leaf is rather aromatic and little dryer and milder than Golden Virginia for example and cut is very rolling friendly. Perfect for irregular smokers like me. And you get it in those handy boxes w/skins and filters.

    I also liked Gauloise rolling tobacco but it was never regularly sold in Ireland, bought it on the continent. Other good one was German Schwarzer Krauser from Bremen and Javaanse Jongens.
  • I was a 30+ a day Bensons and Hedges man, gave up 8 years ago when my first child was born ,. managed it with no real fuss.
    Just started on my snuff journey! I see snuff as more of a hobby addiction than a nicotine one..
  • Started out on Benson and Hedges
    Then I switched to Royals
    Then I switched to Marlboro Red
    Then I switched to Marlboro Lights
    Then I switched to Golden Virginia (RYO)
    Then I switched to Amber Leaf
    Then I switched to Old Holburn
    A few weeks before I quit I switched to Drum (purposefully, because I didn't like it much)

    Now it's the pipe if tobacco is to be burnt (though I may have the odd cheap cigar). Favourite tobaccos so far are Squadron Leader, Bob's Chocolate Flake, and brown pigtail depending upon the mood at the time

    From age 16 - 25 I must've smoked every brand and type of cigarette available in the UK, before settling on Craven A's for four or five years. Then every RYO bacca going,not really fussy what I had at any given time until Nov' last year when the snuff took over. I still have 1 cig first thing in the morning but that's it apart from the very rare occasion when I help myself to a rollie from the missus' stash. It's no big deal.
  • Well, 25 years of smoking now, ive sampled almost everything....value to premium to the obscure. wish i could giv them up, but....ill get around to that one of these days.
    ROTHMANS if I want something filtered; otherwise, Camel NF and luckies.
  • willcwillc Member
    Mostly smoked Parliments but would get Camel Turkish Royal or Gold sometimes.
  • jmahesjmahes Member
    American Spirit Organic RYO
    Gauloises RYO
    Nat Sherman's MCD

    i was never a heavy smoker but from the ages of 18-25 I did like to occasionally light up

    I hope this is not considered off the topic of this thread, but I've notice that some people say that they tried RYO cigarettes, but it never satisfied them the way that commercial cigarettes did.  I wonder why that is?  I understand why e-cigs, nic patches, etc., would not completely satisfy, because they don't contain whole tobacco alkaloids.  But RYO cigs contain actual tobacco, so why would they provide less satisfaction for some people than commercial cigs?
  • @MarkM I know what you mean. I was the opposite. I found roll ups far more satisfying than factory cigs, even with skinny XL filters in.
  • Marlboro Reds. Started stealing cigs from my pops. Then I smoked for about 11 years. now, I haven't smoked in the last 5 years or so and I feel great!!

  • I rolled my own and smoked Samson, Drum, Perle Shag, Golden Virginia, Old Holborn, etc. But that was a long, long time ago. Now I only smoke cannabis, which I grow, in Colorado where it's legal.
  • @MarkM When I switched from ready-mades (US Pall Mall at the time) to rolling my own Stokkebye's and Daughters and Ryan tobaccos, I noticed a difference. The ready-mades gave me lethargy and a feeling of chest congestion, often with an unpleasant aftertaste, that went away when I switched. I attribute that to the witch's brew of additives in branded cigarettes. I still like a rollie now and again, but I won't smoke another ready-made. Yecch! I smoked various brands of them for a quarter century. Yecch!
  • MarkMMarkM Member
    @TerrapinFlyer - that "witch's brew of additives" must be part of the attraction with branded cigarettes.  I remember years ago offering some of my rollies to a smoker friend of mine, and he enjoyed them but soon found himself jonesing for what he referred to as a "real cigarette", by which he meant a Marlboro.  To me, that was like ordering Beef Wellington and wanting a Big Mac on the side, but of course I didn't say anything.
