Getting Bored? Just Look In The Mirror! [May. 24th, 2015|07:53 pm]

Over the years, as I matured in my passion for smoking, at times I began to think "Is that all there is?". I mean you puff, you inhale and then you exhale. Sure it feels great, especially after a long time without a smoke, but as with anything else the human animal can get bored.

Now, if you've read my thread about re-breathing your own exhaled smoke you can easily see where that occasional boredom has led me. That very special ritual is probably a bit too adventurous for many of you smokers, but here's one that any smoker of any experience level can whole-heartedly enjoy.

As with so many problems, sometimes we just need to look in the mirror to see who needs to make changes. And, for the smoking fetishists among us, smoking is no exception to this rule. If you're getting bored with smoking, something you love so much, just spice it up a bit. Wait until you're all alone so you won't be self-conscious and get that hand-held mirror from the bathroom.

Sit down where you're most comfortable and light up your favorite smoke. Be sure the area is well lit. Hold up the mirror, oh so close to your face, so you can watch yourself taking a large puff. Now, this next step is important. Don't just inhale as usual, but slowly open your mouth so you can see your mouthful of creamy, delicious smoke. Watch how it undulates in cascading waves over your tongue. Savor the smooth taste. You begin to realize just how beautiful it really is, and how little you were aware of it before. Suddenly, you know in your heart that you can't resist it ... it's calling you!

So, now for the best part. Slowly, and I mean very slowly, inhale the creamy smoke as you watch it all travel so fluidly down and into your anxious lungs. It's very difficult for me to convey just how dramatic and sensual this can be. It's like a river of clouds flowing downhill to where it has always been meant to be. Hold the smoke for about a second. Then, once again slowly, watch as you steadily exhale. Notice how thick it is - how gorgeous the cloudy flow looks against your pursed lips. Most importantly, listen closely to what your body is telling you. Unlike all those countless normal daily drags, this one feels heavenly!

P.S. I almost forgot! If you first lean your head way back with the mirror over you you'll find the smoke will stay neatly nested in your mouth much more easily since it's actually heavier than air. Plus, this gives you more time to gaze at it in the mirror before sending it down where it truly belongs.

Enjoying The Wonders Of Smoke Re-breathing! [May. 23rd, 2015|04:57 pm]

I'm sure we've all noticed that non-inhaled cigarette smoke smells harsh and can even sting the eyes, while inhaled smoke tends to be soft, smooth and even sweet-smelling by comparison when it is exhaled - especially mentholated smoke. C'mon, you know you've re-breathed your own exhaled smoke from time to time when no one was looking. It was wonderful - right?! Maybe you French-inhaled it as it left your mouth. It didn't sting the nose as it would when you French-inhale a mouthfull of uninhaled smoke - right?

This is because an amazing change occurs when tobacco smoke is processed through your lungs. I'm not referring to the amazing, pleasurable feelings you immediately experience but, rather, how the characteristics of the smoke itself are beautifully transformed by your magical lungs! The smoke is filtered somewhat as your lungs absorb much of the smoke's ingredients (those great feelings). The smoke is also humidified by the lung's ever-present moisture. And, finally, the smoke exits the lungs with a high concentration of carbon dioxide.

When you combine the filtering, humidifying and carbon dioxide effects you now have a soft, silky-smooth and much sweeter smelling smoke that is unbelievably pleasurable to re-breath in and out - over and over again with no urge to cough. It's really that gentle. But, it's impossible to do by trying to chase your smoke as it disperses into the room. Ha! No, my friend. You must devise a set-up, something simple, to contain the smoke so you can continue to re-breathe it continuously until it needs to be replenished with another one, two, three puffs, etc.

If you're creative you can certainly design your own smoke hood. I devised a very simple, cheap and easy to make set-up utilizing a ball cap, opaque gallon milk jug and some cloth. I cut off the bottom and Gorilla-taped the jug to the cap's brim. I then made a hole on the side of the jug which I use to insert a long cigarette holder through to my lips (a long straw of the correct diameter also works). Then I made a circle of stretchy cloth, about 8 inches wide to seal around the jug and then to the ball cap down to my chin. The cloth, and the areas where the cloth doesn't seal tightly, allow sufficient oxygen flow so you don't need to "come up for air". This way you get plenty of air in the smoke, but the smoke is able to become delightfully thick and, in all honesty, is a major physical turn-on for me. You determine the smoke thickness by how many drags you choose to exhale into your smoke hood.

Now, c'mon, really think about this. As you inhale the 2nd or 3rd drag, you are also inhaling the trapped smoke from previous drags! This gives your lungs an incredibly pleasurable full feeling - I mean really full! Can you imagine now how this would feel in your lungs?! Re-breathing in this manner can truly become for you what is has for me - an exhilarating and physically stimulating thrill. You don't have to hold anything. You simply sit back comfortably, body and arms resting peacefully, as the dense, soothing smoke fills you beyond your wildest dreams. Just puff and breathe slowly - puff and breathe - puff and breathe. God, it's so amazing!! By the way, if you choose to use one hand for something else, well, that's for you to decide. So, to all you adventurous smokers out there, have an amazing time with your smoke hood!! I hope I've helped some of you to enrich your smoking life. If you do give this a try, I'd love to hear if it provided intense pleasure for you as it has for me.

P.S. Unless you're a very experienced smoker, please take this one step at a time. One puff at first, and then don't take another until the device is essentially empty. In short order you'll know if a 2nd, 3rd puff or more is right for you. Make sure the ash will fall onto something fire-safe. The important thing is to completely relax your body and your breathing, and just allow yourself to melt into the smoke cloud. This is a very special time that lasts for just a few minutes, so take full advantage. A recliner can be perfect for this relaxing ritual, but use whatever works best for you.

smoking in (*almost) as much indoor paradise as you'll find anymore, aka Las Vegas [Mar. 27th, 2015|02:37 pm]
the community for those who smoke and LIKE IT

*- Meaning there are some non-ban places left in states without statewide bans, but that such places are getting rarer to find. And usually, bigger cities and college towns have passed bar smoking bans, with some limited exceptions here and there.

Anyway for more populated cities, it's getting rarer to find populated cities and states with sensible laws not prohibiting smoking in bars and other adult-only establishments(I.e. Indiana), or sometimes areas with almost no restrictions(I.e. the Northern Kentucky counties south of Cincinnati). And of course in ban areas, sometimes you'll run into a rare 'smokeasy' that doesn't enforce a bar smoking ban.

That said, Las Vegas was awesome! I think I only spotted a handful of bars along the Strip that were no smoking, and the majority of bar and casino areas still allowed smoking, which was a throwback to the mid-2000s but fun. Cigarettes aren't expensive, and I even saw at least one casino(forget which one) which had people walking around selling cigs. :) Even their airport has indoor lounges where you can smoke post-security(not to mention slot machines on top, and I'm very little into that OTOH), which is VERY RARE for any airport to have nowadays. And so great, when you're getting annoyed by the stress of being in an aiport. I wish more parts of the country were still as smoker-friendly, but hopefully I'll return to Vegas one of these days. I know it's unfortunately getting bad in more and more places(heck, New Orleans shockingly just passed a bar and casino ban, though there is talk about amending it for their casinos), but hopefully I'll get to Vegas several more times before that might be gone, for all I know.

Just spotted this and thought ide add a little input.

To anybody who is debating whether to go to an electronic smoke forget it!. Last year I gave in to the hype and bought myself a liquid rechargeable one. eventually after a couple of months I even preferred the taste, Plus I saved I nice bit of money. really windy outside? No problem my freind and if for some reason you care non smokers will no longer complain about the cloud of smoke following you were ever you go.

Wasent long until it started to leak and ran out of battery in times of need. So I was sat outside having a couple of beers one night when it began to leak giving me a very nauseating feeling. So I whipped out my emergency pack and slowly lit a smoke and it was amazing there's something mentally a classic ciggarette can do that any crappy imitation will never produce. Haha although I did throw into the river and it gave a satisfying splash.

A Brief Rant [Dec. 20th, 2013|12:19 pm]
the community for those who smoke and LIKE IT

leather_lungs
Even though this community has been pretty dead for quite a while I thought I would articulate and post some thoughts that have been running through my head the last few days. I have been attending a series of day-long workshops this week and have come in contact with several people who have expressed surprise and only lightly muffled scorn upon learning that I am an unrepentant smoker. Almost as annoying are the three smokers in their twenties who have thought it appropriate to tell me that at my age (I'm 43) I "Need to quit soon before it's too late" and have professed their intention to quit before they hit 40.

You Smoke?

Yes, I smoke. Every day, from the moment I turn off my alarm to right before turning out the light to go to sleep, I deliberately inhale massive amounts of toxic cigarette smoke into the darkest depths of my corrupted lungs. I don't stop there, either. Oh, no, I hold the poisonous gasses in my lungs several seconds so my poor addicted body can absorb even more oxygen-displacing carbon monoxide and brain-stimulating nicotine while yet another layer of carcinogenic tar coats my delicate alveoli. If that wasn't enough, I smoke 40+ high tar and nicotine cigarettes a day. I have done this deliberate self destructive thing for 32 years.

Why? Because I enjoy it. When I was 11 years old and had succeeded n beating my lungs into submission, I finished the pack of cigarettes I had purchased from a vending machine (It only cost a buck!) and told myself that now that I knew what smoking was like I wouldn't continue. After all, why would I want to keep doing something that was so bad for me. A day later I bought another pack of cigarettes and haven't looked back. I knew I was headed for physical and psychological addiction. I knew that I was headed for decreased stamina, a "smokers cough" and all the other nasty stuff my teachers had described to me in such vivid detail. I also knew that, in time, lung cancer, heart disease, and emphysema were possible results of my decision to continue smoking. Now, more than 50 pack years later, I am still smoking and have no desire to quit. No, I don't have the stamina I would have if I had never smoked or had smoked less; but smoking has never prevented me from engaging in any physical activity I wanted. Yes, when I don't smoke for a while I get a slight cough (More of a throat clearing) as my lungs try to get rid of the mucus they have secreted in a futile attempt to fend of the damage I have inflicted. It is annoying and I put an end to it by lighting another cigarette as soon as I can. Chronic sinusitis exacerbated by smoking gives me an impressive morning hack fest and I have to muster all the raw lung power I can to clear the crap out so I can breath without rattling. I can live with all that and intend to as long as I can.

So, yes, I smoke. Yes, it's probably going to kill me. I can live with that.

Hey! [Dec. 8th, 2013|01:16 pm]

Hey I just found this community a few days ago and read through many of the entries. I have to say, I already love this community! I started smoking when I was 17 and have been smoking for a year or so. I realized, though, that this journal has been pretty dead.

No matter, I have something to share, to whoever might come across this entry. All my smoker friends told me about the stories of their first cigarettes and how they hacked and coughed at the first puff. When I tried mine, I expected myself to too. However, the smoke went down smooth (my first ciggie was a Marlboro Menthol anyway). I didn't cough, not even a little. It was like my body already accepted that this day would come.

For my first cigarette, I didn't inhale. I was a little nervous and couldn't concentrate on listening to my friend's instructions on how to inhale. After finishing the first one, I wasn't proud of myself. I had to do it right. Thus I bummed another immediately off my friend, and then smoked it right this time. This was no coughing. I assumed that my mind and body were ready to accept the smoke without any hesitation (I've been wanting to try smoking for a while then). Anyone with similar experiences?

Quick story about a "courteous" skunk [Aug. 20th, 2013|03:28 am]
the community for those who smoke and LIKE IT

Tonight while I was sitting out in the front for a quick smoke, I heard some faint rustling in the bushes. I didn't really pay it much mind though since my neighbor has a number of cats that roam about at night and like to come up to people and hang out in everyone's lawns. But the exact moment I was putting out my cigarette, a skunk pops out of the bushes, naturally startling me, and thus startling it, and so then it does this little maneuver and poises itself to spray me. It did take me a second to realize that it wasn't a cat since it was so dark out, but I don't think I've ever jumped up so fast in my life nor struggled so hard to open an unlocked door! lol

The thing is, I know there are skunks in my neighborhood and I've seen them (from a distance) on several occasions, especially at night, so that was kind of a lesson to me... Although, I do appreciate that the skunk was nice enough to wait until I was finished before popping out :)

Hi all. I know this community has been pretty quiet lately, but I think you guys are awesome. I'm glad that a community like this even exists. It's just a shame that it's not more active :(

Anyway, I just wanted to share my little story of how I "came out" to my boyfriend. He's a smoker himself, but I didn't pick up smoking until pretty recently. So far, he's the only one who really knows.

I tried vainly to hide it from him. I guess I didn't really expect him to get after me about it, but I figured he might at least tease me.
He didn't.
I asked if it was ok for me to go outside for a minute. He said "sure" and I hid a cigarette and my cheap lighter in one hand.
I stood on his porch, fumbled with the lighter in the dark. I couldn't close the door all the way.
His roommate had his window open. He was watching Family Guy.
I took a drag, and aside from Peter Griffin, it was quiet.

I came back.
"Everything ok?" he said.
"Yeah....Don't yell at me"
He didn't understand until the next morning -- I left my pack next to my purse when I'd pulled out my meds.
We parted ways, him to go to work, me to go home. I blasted the A/C, trying desperately to cool down my car, when I heard a knock on my window.
"Give me one of your cigarettes. I don't have anymore of mine."

doctors [Mar. 19th, 2013|11:56 am]

Hi everyone, long time no see. I hope some people are still kicking around here, and doing well. I had a little anecdote I wanted to relate...

So I just called my doctor's office about a bill I received in mail, related to my annual physical in January. The bill said I owed $20 for "Smoke Tob Cessatio". I sensed something was wrong about this as I've never asked my doctor for any advice or help related to smoking, though she does always ask me about my smoking habits, I answer honestly, and she then proceeds to lecture and badger me continually for the rest of the visit about how I must quit immediately.

Anyway, the receptionist claimed it was for "Smoking Cessation Counseling" which I apparently received from my doctor. Apparently her asking me about smoking and bullying me about it counts as counseling? Anyway I politely disagreed that I had received counseling, and she put me on hold for about 5 minutes then came back on and said that I can disregard the bill, that I was "billed in error."

This got me to thinking, about how the extreme antsmoking atmosphere that reigns nowawdays has, I think, affected our trust and rapport with our physicians. I always try to be honest with my doctor about everything in my lifestyle, but her extreme stance about smoking and this incident makes me want to just start lying about my light-to-moderate habit.

How do you all handle doctor's visits? Do you think that your physician is unreasonable about smoking, and does that affect your relationship with them?
