If you smoke, pick up a pack of American Spirits.

This morning I woke up to another email from him with the pictures. Then just as I was walking into the shop the phone rang and it was him. Son of a bitch I was ready to flip out!

We talked for about 30 mins and the conversation never got heated, thankfully. I explained to him that if I was in his shoes, I'd want the seller to make it right, so that's what I want to do. We went back and forth on a couple issues and eventually I ended by telling him I'd give him a full refund. He said he'd check it out again tomorrow morning before work and see if he thinks he can fix it and let me know at lunchtime. I'm thinking his guilt kicked in.

To be 100% honest, the pictures he sent don't look right. I truly feel he's doing a switch and bait on me, but there's not much I can do. I cant really prove he's trying to **** me so I have to just let it be. Unless I want to jeopardize my feedback/top rated seller status over this. Worst case scenario I'm out $150 for the freight, but I already called my guy today and fought the charge. He said best he could do is give me a $50 credit toward the next shipment and I told him if I don't get back the $150 from this one that there wont be another one.

Live and learn. I just sold another hood today and after this one I'll never sell another. lol

You idiot. Are you even 18? How long have you been smoking? I guarantee you don't have the experience on the subject that I do. I used to chief two+ packs a day like a ******* pro. Your opinion is bullshit and unfounded. If you knew anything about cigarettes, you would HATE American Spirits for the following reasons:

1. They do not pull properly
2. They taste like utter ****
3. They leave one with a "full" feeling (I used to get a similar feeling from Camel Blues)
4. They take forever to burn
5. They don't have any chemicals (see #2)

American Spirits are cigarettes designed for and marketed to people who do not know good cigarettes. If you want my recommendations as to what you should start smoking if you wanted to get into the hobby, I'd HIGHLY recommend Camel Turkish Silver. It's a smooth cigarette, comparable to a Turkish Royal but without that oil aftertaste. The design of the cigarette itself also looks really cool.

I'm not partial to Camels. I used to smoke mad Parliaments in my coke days (for reasons few here will understand) and I've been known to dabble in a few other brands when my choice cigarette wasn't available (Turkish Silvers are a limited-market).

I know cigarettes, you do not. **** you. If you want to start smoking like a ******* pro, smoke two packs of Turkish Silvers, two packs of Turkish Golds and two packs of Turkish Royals. Then, throw a bunch of each in a bag, pick one randomly, light it and see if you can tell which it is without looking at the paper.

Honestly, I think you're too late in the game. Don't bother starting, it won't help get you laid.

I smoke American Spirits and they have been my only brand for 10 years. I have never smoked more than 5-7 cigarettes a day, and on the occasions when I have quit for a few months or a year, I never went through withdrawls. I believe because they are organic and additive free that they do not addict you in the same way that other brands do, as that has been my experience. When I smoked camels I was up to nearly a pack a day. I did not notice a taste difference.

You can't tell the difference between once blend of tobacco and another? Are you sure?

Tried a couple different kinds, just like these. That's the only reason.

Oh, and you're right, I don't smoke, they were given to me. I just happen to like them.

I am so sick and ******* tired of hearing about our former governor right now. Even NPR can't resist the temptation.

Yes, he knocked up the maid. He's ******* Arnold for crying out loud. He can knock up Chuck Norris for all I care.

**** yeah, I have a chance to get out of that hell hole of a job I currently have. A local Lexus dealer, Tom Williams is interested in me, and I'm going to talk to the guys tomorrow. A high end Lexus dealer probably pays their techs a bit higher than most shops. We shall see, I'm not holding my breath or keeping high hopes, but it would be nice. They must treat their people right, since most of their techs have been with them a long time.

I like cigs that burn slowly, it keeps me from lighting up another one back to back. I was smoking Djarum clove cigs for years and I would smoke one in the time it took everyone else to smoke 2-3 normal cigs. Recently I got tired of them though...I couldn't taste the menthol anymore. Now I'm onto Marlboro Smooth menthol...and trying to cut back even more. A pack lasts me 2-3 days.

I started off smoking Marlboro milds, then went to Newports and eventually ended up settling on Marlboro reds for the last 7-8 years. In between those ones I've tried Parliament, Camel, Salem and a few others when I had no choice.

According to my quit smoking app it says I've been smoke free for 250 days and I've saved over $1700 since. At this point I know I'll never go back and it feels good to know.

You ******s should try getting some willpower before you end up on a oxygen tank 24/7. **** that. I'm glad I kicked that garbage habit.

I've been smoke free for the past four weeks but before I quit I went wild and tried a bunch of different kinds I'd never tried before. It was pretty fun. I liked Marlboro Skylines (and would recommend them) for their slight menthol taste.

ON QUITTING: I feel GREAT. I haven't experienced any of the symptoms of withdrawal except for good breath. Do I miss it? **** yeah. Is my bankroll fatter? Nah, 'cause I used my gas card to buy packs. Will I go back to it? Only if I start dating a girl who smokes. It's been good proving to myself that I can quit though.

**** yeah man! Don't be one of those people that quit for 2 months and say "ohh well, at least i didnt have any for those 2 months and I wont smoke as much as I used to". Once you get away from it don't ever go back.

I quit once before for probably 4 months, maybe a little longer. Gradually I bummed one here and there, then before you know it I was back to a pack a day. So I know it can happen.

Now I'm in the market for a vaporizer so I can get the smoke out of my lungs 100%. A joint here and there is fine, but I'd like to replace the bowl pack with a pocket vaporizer or something alike.

I don't understand how you can stomach smoking pot. I HATE the smell. I think it smells way worse than stale cigarettes and spoiled beer.

Also, I need to PM you about some parts that I need. Look for that, ya bia bia.
