    Alright, I'm in the US, where they recently implemented a tax hike on cigarette's. So in light of the fact that i would go broke still smoking, and my attempt to quit failed... I've started rolling my own. It's hella cheap, and it doesn't taste bad either! cartons are now what $40-$50? this way its about $7-$12, and even with the time it takes to roll them, its really worth it! So, are there any other Roll Your Owner's out there that can recommend any really good tobacco and/or a bad-ass injector? i am currently using a Bugler handheld injector, Peoples Taste Tobacco, and Gambler tubes. I'm kind of interested in one of the Premier Cigarette Machines, but i'm not sure if it's worth it or not. Also, what about the flavored tobacco? i'm afraid it will taste like crap. If ya have any insight on this, please share your experience!

    Cheers!

    I roll my own hash, green, and stuff, never thought about rolling your own cigs though. Does it generally work the same way? Wonder if the papers you use will be as durable as the original cig casing. BTW, where are you in the U.S.? I'm in the Midwest and haven't noticed a hike recently... [​IMG]

    Lol its different than that, you actually buy a tub of tobacco, paper tubes, and an injector. Its not like rolling a joint lol.

    And I only know this cause it's what my grandpa does, so I can't give any insight except for this.

    oh, i still hand roll my green. but for cigs, its like this; you have an injector, tubes, and tobacco. you put the tobacco in the injectors slot and place a tube on the end on the injector. you then slide the injector so the cig slides over the tobacco in it and slide it back forward and you have it.

    edit: i live in texas, maybe it's a texas only legislation, but they went from about $3 to more than $5 a pack here.

    Hey that's a neat trick.
    I just hand roll with drum tobacco & drum papers.
    Trying to quit right now.

    Also you might check into mail order smokes from indian reservations.
    I did that the last time I was trying to quit. It was the only way I could get Quest cigarettes.
    Quest is the brand with no nicotine. They taste like crap, but they definately helped me quit.

    edit: should I have said "native american reservations"? [​IMG]

    Here in Ontario, there $9.75 a pack!
    F**king robbery, but I'm still smoking premium pre-rolls.
    It's cheaper to smoke weed now, and I'm hooked on both.
    Stick with the injector, the premium machines aren't all they're cracked up to be.

    My brother did the same shit. Started rolling his own and saving money. Personally, I find more useful ways to spend my money, which is why I dont smoke, but smoke on playa!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Hope you guys aren't smoking that shit without a filter. I've never even tasted one myself, but when I was younger I can remember quite vividly, my mother scuffling through her ash tray and emptying out the little bits of tobacco out of the butts. She'd role it in a piece of brown paper bag. Smell would fill the room, but she was broke and needed her fix. When I got older I'd just empty her trays periodically, just to avoid that crazy shit. Amazingly I never saw the glamour in smoking, go figure [​IMG]

    Ya no filter but no additives... Most brands of American cigs have tons of junk added in, so less harmful IMHO... [​IMG]

    Maybe things are done differently in the UK, but over here people use small rectangular rolling papers, tobacco and a small filter. Tobacco and filter goes on paper near the edge, roll up and lick the paper edge to stick it down. (I don't smoke myself, just knew a few cheap students who did)

    travel more, and visit duty free shops. I always get a couple cartons of davidoff's or mild seven's every trip. Never seem to run out.
