Hey I figured I would throw this in since I have sorely missed the absence of Gauloises and Gitanes in America; Merci cigarettes are basically what they have been replaced with, I got a pack today (blondes) and they taste very similar, they also have an unfiltered version that is similar to the darker brunes-style as well. Would be curious if you ever found a good place to buy the Gauloises though, I have looked into some of the websites and it all seems very sketchy.

I love Stokkebye. Amsterdam shag and Norweigian shag are both really good. Drum is awesome too, but very rough. Drum buzzes are awesome though.

I like to mix a little bit of Drum Perique with some lighter Stokkebye to tone down the smoke a lot, and I think my favorite so far is Norweigian/Drum Perique blend. Someone mentioned drum being rebranded as Bali Shag, but I'm fairly sure that Bali Shag is made by a different brand, although the packaging is very similar.

Dutyfreedepot.com worked for me. I did a one-time-use credit card number and funded it with $100 and ordered two cartons (Dunhill Blue lights (not the big square box) and Gauloises Blondes Lights). They came quickly for a total of $60ish. Nothing sketchy although their site is somewhat broken ("finished" checkout without asking for my card number). I ended up having to send a credit card number in an email, but the one-time-use thing meant it was safe even so. Will probably order a bunch more soon to stock up for the inevitable tax hikes/zombie apocalypse cigarette based economy.

This may be off topic but I was wondering if anyone else was like this: I told a good friend of mine that no matter what I wasn't able to be addicted to nicotine and of course said I could. We made a bet that I would smoke 3 packs of Belmont regulars in 2 weeks and if I wasn't hooked he'd give me 100 bucks. Fast forward I haven't had a cigarette nor craved one since we did this two months ago. Am I just resistant?

3 packs in 2 weeks is not smoking.

I smoked a pack of reds on Tuesday, haven't had a cigarette since. I feel fine.

I quit smoking about 8 months ago and it's one of the best decisions I ever made.

Well then you won't know if you can get addicted to nicotine or not, the answer is yes anyway but some respond to it more than others and also appreciate the psychological components.

The trick with kicking an addiction is to replace it with something else.

That's how I kicked cigarettes. Now if only I could find something to break my big black cock addiction.


Just kidding, I still smoke a pack a day. Hmm maybe that has something to do with my difficulty in seeing gains at the gym. Nah, probably not.

The self-righteousness that comes with being a former smoker is more addictive than the nicotine ever was.

I started smoking (cigarettes) at 15 years old. Gave it up at 23.

Never got back since (8 years ago). It's not hard to give it up if you really want to.
