    Hi , all like topic says I'm here to meet whoever I can I plan to be pretty active and love joining new website's and forums and learning how many things there are still out there I.never really even paid enough attention too to realize how much I'm missing. So I welcome all opinions ideas whatever I wrote a little about myself on my profile and I hope to find some interesting ideas , hopefully meet some great ppl, and get some good suggestions on how to possibly make some extra money. One thing i just did that is probably so easy i feel stupid for being so close minded before. I have just started making my own cigarettes, and wish I had done it years ago, it's only been about 3 weeks and I can feel the money savings. I was smoking atleast a pack to 2 a day and in philly especially with the brand new city tax it was about 9bucks a pack give or take the store of brand I smoked Newport's and mavericks. I am unable to work and do what I know and have done my whole life which was dif types of construction I even had a company before and all but now I'm in lingo waiting for my ssi disability to be approved and start collecting and get my big retro check and the lawyers I have say its a definite case I should have it in about 6 months but I don't know what to do until then and even after I enjoy working or anything that makes me money I have a done alot of different types of sales and credit card processing before but can't walk around anymore or be on my feet long so I've been searching the web and wound up here. Anyway as i was saying im amazed im saving roughly 15 bucks a day as compared too now i spend maybe $1.50 a pack at most to make cigarettes i actually like more and taste better and its almost therapeutic making them with the machine I got on Craig's list for ten bucks new they are $40 to $50, and I can experiment with diff flavors of tobacco and tubes. Tubes they call the empty cigarettes with no tobacco in them which are under 3$ for 250 of them n about $20 for a lb. Of tobacco which is almost 2 cartons worth. I'd really like to sell em to friends and ppl in the neighborhood for 5 a pack or do loosies like all the corner stores do n get a buck a smoke I'd do like 2 for a buck but it would make money but have to always be around and not much money and isn't legal even tho the corner stores all open their packs n sell singles but anyway point is I was so close minded and spent thousands and thousands over the years just because I never decided to learn about it and made false judgements but I joined a forum about it and in a day of reading it I have and never will buy a common brand premade cigarette again I now laugh at ppl who do probably they think like I used too which was just how I always pictured it but for some reason i always looked at it as "cheap" , or maybe lower class or just grouped it in a bad way for some reason and man was I wrong. That was just an example of what I mean I want to learn about something I don't know about and something that could be more useful than best brand tobacco if that saved me so much money I'm sure there are other things like this ad me thing I have on my phone u don't make much but its still money I wouldn't have otherwise I'm figuring alot of dif things like that or one site I take surveys for if I did alot of that stuff n learned about all of it I could make a few extra bucks and kill sometime and get to learn as a noob again all over on a new website forum. I'm not expecting to become rich just enjoy reading and learning and instead of spending money if I make even a few bucks I'm haplh.
    OK sorry that was so long thanks if anyone read the whole thing I just wanted to say who I was and why I'm here as closely as I could for people that may want to try to help me. I look forward to meeting every body and I'm happy to be here and thank you for having me I plan to be active tho so I'll be looking forward to any replies or statements to my first post thanks everyone.

    bit of advice, as the blackhatter above said a great big wall of endless text is hurtful on the eyes. if you have lots of questions then ask a few at a time over several posts and people will help you, i for one saw that lot of text and just didn't bother so i have no idea what you want as i am not going to strain my eyes trying to read that.

    A lot of nice information around, but don't get too caught up. Action is still king :) had the same problem at the beginning.
