    Ok i know cigs are bad and what not but shit happens so get over it...

    Ok i've been smoking for a while and have been thinking about quiting but never get around to actually quiting:D I generally smoke marlboro red or winston red. The Local price in my are is roughly around

    For winston $3.80 or 2.80 Euros
    For Marlboro Red's $4.90 or 3.60 Euros
    These prices are local store prices with the local gov. tax included.

    I smoke around a pack aday and lately i noticed it's been hitting my pocket even harder as im a college student so the other day i was walking around the local markets and i saw a dude selling cigs on the street (Yea i know bad idea) but anyways i approached him and saw that he was selling Red's and winstons but another brand caught my eye. Rockets 40's The blue pack. It's a pack of 40 Cigs and the price per pack is $3.00 or 2.20 Euros so i bought 2 packs and went on my way.

    Now that im trying these out they arent so bad. I get more ciggys i pay less i get my nicotine crave and actually shell out less then usual and since they don't really rival Winston or marlboro in the amount of nicotine per cig im thinking i can actually slowly begin quiting little by little.

    What do you guys do? Im sure most dudes/Dudettes here smoke so im just an average guy on a average budget and i found this to be a good solution to my nicotine crave. Basically im saving a tad bit of money and in the long run i have a higher chance of quiting....:D

    Sign up to the Marlboro site with as many names you can and get their coupons. I have 3 names signed up and get about $12 off a carton every month.

    Every dollar counts when you're just smoking away the money, literally..

    Plus they do mail you some nice incentives like lighters, ash trays, domino's, cards, shirts, etc.
