Cigarette prices increased today in the state of Ohio. I simply cannot afford to pay six dollars for a pack of smokes these days, and I am trying to quit. It is not going well! After freaking out and snapping at my dogs, my neighbor and my boyfriend I decided to switch to hand rolled cigarettes. I am a nicotine addict, I am not proud of that fact but I am at least honest about it.I bought Gambler tobacco in a light variety today, I got a generous sized pouch of loose tobacco and a package of 36 rolling papers for $1.54 and my favorite gas station. I am hoping that I will be able to give up the bad habit easier if I am smoking something cheap and non filtered.
Maybe it is just the fact that I had not had a cigarette yet today, I actually like the flavor of Gambler light tobacco! The price is right and I should be able to get at least 50 hand rolled non filter cigarettes out of this single small package.
The flavor is better than you would get from basic full flavors. It is not as harsh, it doesn't taste like you are smoking hay. It is smooth and aromatic. For the affordable price I am very pleased with my purchase of Gambler light loose tobacco in a pouch.
What I don't like about this tobacco is easy to understand. It does have a lot of tobacco stems inside the pouch, you must sort through and remove these hard stems before rolling a smoke, or else you will have a rip in the paper or a hole in the cigarette.
My other complaint is that after smoking three non filter cigarettes I now have a big old nasty nicotine stain on two of my fingers, just from smoking three cigarettes. I have been scrubbing my hands like crazy trying to remove the unsightly stain, but that is not doing the trick. I used fingernail polish remover and a pumice stone and the stains were pretty much non existent luckily.
If you are a smoker who cannot afford to pay $6 for a pack of cigarettes but also can't or won't quit I would recommend you try out Gambler loose tobacco in any flavor. I saw they offered light, full flavor, menthol and Turkish blends. There is a Gambler tobacco to suit your needs and preferences. This tobacco is affordable, it doesn't taste bad and it sure beats spending nearly an hours wage on a cigarette! I would recommend Gambler to others, and I will keep buying this product until I can kick the nasty habit.
