I started smoking cause it was forbidden fruit and most of my "cool" friends did it. I lived comunally in the late 70's and we would buy a large tin of tobacco with the groceries and veerybody, except 1 of seven plus people, smoked from it. When it was empty, we'd buy another. However, the communal tin was a tobacco from Amsterdam, fine cut lengthwise and had to be handrolled. It had about 1/3 the poisons in regular cigarettes. to this day that's all I smoke(d). I still roll my own but with a hand held machine and a filter tube. I hate TM's so am out of luck when out of tobacco. I have to do a tour of convenience stores and tobacco shops to find it. The hand rolling cuts down on the volumn of cigarettes I smoke because if talking on phone or driving, one cannot disengage two hands to accomplish the task. I smoke about one pack a week. I do smoke more when stressed. My son brings it to my attention, Ma, you just had one."So, I'm stressed make me another." He hates rolling my cigarettes and will delay as long as possible. I told him if he doesn't complete his truck driving school program, I am going for it, Transport truck driving, and he'll have to sit in the passanger's seat and roll my cigarettes. He's motivated. I find the cigareete helps me focus, calms me down, it's like a "mini vacation"from it all. I quit drinking, I quit men, I tell them all, just leave me my rollies, nobody is perfect, ps. I learned to stay out of gambling parlours also, it was looking to be another disaster. As soon as I was down $100.00 bucks, I said, no more.
