Welcome to our little home on the web. Here is where you will find my guides to saving money and smoking better tobacco. I want to show you the world of rolling your own cigarettes that can be both enjoyable and very affordable.
The first thing most people think of when it comes to rolling your own tobacco is that the cigarette will not be as good as my normal brand, it is messy, and it is probaly not worth the money I save. Well if that is how you think, you could not be further from the truth!
You see the truth is, that if you know what you are doing and what products to use then you can make your own cigaretts that are both more enjoyable to smoke and at a fraction of the cost. I am talking about huge savings. I currently pay $9.00 a carton for my smokes. Yes you heard that right, .90 cents a pack.
I smoked Marlboro Reds and then Marlboro Lights for about 15 years. Once they got up to over $6.00 bucks a pack I had to change my brand to Paul Mall because they are only $4.25 per pack. I really never liked the flavor of the Paul Mall's but it was a sacrafice I had to make if I was going to be able to afford my habbit.
After about 2 yrs of smoking Pall Malls, one day I decided there has to be a better alternative. I began researching rolling your own cigarettes and after quite a bit of trial and error I found some very good products at very low prices. I now spend less in a month on smokes than I did in a week when buying name brand cigs.
I am making this site to share my experiences and help other smokers find out what I did and save money. Not only are the my home rolled cigarettes much cheaper, they are also a very high quality, great smoke. They do not contain nearly as many chemicals as name brands, and just a few weeks after smoking them I can honestly say I feel better.
When I smoke brand name cigarettes now, they give me a headache. I swear it must be the chemicals they use in them. I also do not get heavy chest pains in the morning anymore if I smoke a lot the prior night. I am telling you if you are not rolling your own smokes you are missing out on good smoke and a ton of extra cash in your pocket!
I am going to tell you everything you need to know to roll your own smokes and help you find the right tobacco for you based on what you like. I will give you the steps you need to take to find that perfect combination and show you the same products and stores I use myself to roll my smokes.
The Secret to Rolling Cheap Cigarettes
This is easy, just buy Pipe Tobacco instead of Cigarette Tobacco. The reason why is taxes. The Tax on cig tobacco is really high and you can avoid this buy buying pipe tobacco usually for around 7 to 10 dollars for a 6 to 8oz bag.
Some of my favorite brands of pipe tobacco for rolling in no particular order are
- Criss Cross
- Gambler Tobacco
- OHM Tobacco
I also find that using Premier brand tubes gives me the best tasting and easiest to inject cig.
You can find these at low prices online at stores like bnbtobacco.com Just Look under Pipe Tobacco on the menu. I recommend the Top-O-Matic Injector if you don't have a tube injector for RYO.
