Yucky yuck :O

I bought a pair of trousers on eBay - they were a bargain :D and that's where a lot of my fag money has ended up.

Anyway, as soon as I opened the packet I could smell it - fag smoke - well I'd have put them in the wash anyway 'cos I always do but *blech*

Am trying to convince myself that I didn't smell like that 'cos I smoked outdoors but have a nasty feeling I did :(

I only ever smoked outside Gemma.I even gave it a few minutes after a fag for the smell to dissipate before going back in wherever I was.I hoped.

Nah,we still had that awful pong :o

If it wasnt for that stink,I would have found it much harder to quit.

It is a truly revolting smell :mad:

You smell lush now by the way :p

Me too - and a squirt of perfume or body spray, have saved a fortune on that too since I quit, bonus!!

Am sure you're right though, makes me feel bad for stinking like that for so long :eek:

Lol, I hope I smell good!!

You're definitely right about the smell making it a bit easier to quit too - it's foul and I can really smell it on people now!!

Me too, I got a career-low 4 out of 10, Hels will probably still ace it, the boff :D

I think everyone should sit two days out to let you and Hawk draw level...

I love them too - thanks to Max!!

Lol, when I saw he put up a cigarette pic on the quiz page my first thought was " I'd never waste that much" is that sad or what?

Haha Gem brilliant comment from you :D

Doesnt that sum up what Saddos we used to be :rolleyes:

Thanks lol, am kind of embarrassed to admit it but it definitely does :eek:

Well they are 40p each!!

What a waste of money :mad:

Are you having me on???? Seriously???? Crumbs, I must have been on roll-ups for a long time!:eek:

Well they were a bit less when I smoked - they went up not long after i quit, but 20 Marlboro lights are £8 in my garage shop :eek:

And they were the cheapest I could smoke without gagging - yucky yuck!!

Strike a light, I have definitely been off the tailormades for a long time - I think they were £3 odd when I last bought them and I smoked Marlboro Lights:eek::eek::eek:

Think they were something like that back when I started.

I can remember saving a couple of days dinner money to buy fags for a "treat" sometimes too - no way could I do that now!!

Reply

We could buy them at the corner shop, 10p for one.

Reply

You could actually buy them individually???

Wow I never knew that!!

I used to get 10 menthols from a friend who worked in a shop back when I was at school but don't know anywhere that sold them by the each

Reply

Me neither! I'm trying to remember how much 10 B&H was when I started, my head says 88p but surely I have to be making that up? It was the summer before I turned 16 so that would make it 1989.

That might be right Kat :)

Am sure I paid £1.50-odd for 10 fags back when I was 13/14 and that was 1997/8

Would have been Mayfairs probably 'cos they were cheap and I could smoke their menthols without feeling like I was going to puke

Used to use my dinner money to buy them when i felt like it, so it can't have been much!!

Just before I head to bed you youngsters may not know that in the 60s/early 70s you could buy packets of 20 fags from wall mounted machines,often outside shops.This example of one many years after use,takes 3 times 10p=30p so just after decimalisation in 1971 I would say.

Some of the cigs were terribly strong,like 'Capstan Full Strength' or 'Senior Service' they were merciless on your throat I was told.

Wow really?

I can remember trying to get up courage to go just inside one of the local pubs where there was a fag machine. Never did, got them off a friend instead instead though!!

Oh and my mum went in to buy Senior Service for one of my dad's friends and got warned how strong they were :p

I remember my mum sending me to the shop to buy 10 Number 6, when I was bout 8 or 9.

Reply

They were Players No 6, Light blue, green and white striped packet. Mind you, I never started smoking until I was 22, stupid really.

Reply

Now you've lost me! Number 6? Or were they one of the versions of JPS?

Embassy?

A boy at school I *really* fancied smoked Embassys :p

Oops I'm wrong lol

Reply

They still sell Embassy now, that's what I used to smoke if they ran out of Regal.

I do like my rock, I also like my punk too.

Can't I be sandwiched between the two.

If I have to choose, probably be David Coverdale in his day, but in ll honesty I prefer dark, give me Tommy Lee any day.

What about you?

Reply

Yes, I think they toured with Alice Cooper in 2001, can't remember much of them, we're they from Newcastle?

Reply

Wow do smokers smell! I wish i had known that for the last 20+ years! :eek:
