Ok pit, I turn to you 'cause this is really driving me mad. It shouldn't be driving me this mad but it is.

Since last week, I've started learnign how to roll cigarettes (money problems)

Ehm..I know what to do, how to do it, but here's the problem.

Sometimes the rolling won't work.

At times, I put the baccy in, etc, and start rolling, it rolls beautifully, no problem, close it (still learning this bit properly) but a nice smokeable cigarette comes out.

Other times, and this really annoys me, I start rolling, doing the exact same f*cking movement a before and..nothing. the paper sticks together, my fingers slip fro the paper, for some reason it starts wrapping itself around the filter, and it just won't work, driving me mad.

This seems to happen mostly when my hand are cold..but it's wore when I've just washed my hands. For some reason, after I've washed my hands, rolling is absolutely impossible.

Any advice please?

it's because your hands are smoother after washing them, and drier in the cold (humidity and that.)

Crinkle your paper to ****, get it really crease-y, then unfold it and straighten it out. It seems strange, but it adds grip and makes it much easier to roll.

When I have to, I use a rolling machine because I can't roll. But I know it's not as good because it packs the baccy too tightly.

I have the same issue, it's just all about practice. I also got a rolling machine, for £2. It's not too bad and uses less tobacco.

Practice.

Also dry your hands and if you rizzlas even get slightly wet get rid of them because it will lose the stick. You can make them work if you lick them enough but it's more likely to come apart.

Practice makes perfect. To get better grip on them lick your rolling fingers and then dry them off a bit on your jeans and the lack of grease on your fingers will help you do it better. I still occasionally **** rollies up 4 years on.

I work with a girl that does that, it's nasty. She's always got this plastic container with her that's stained black from having tobacco in it, plus her fingers are stained darker as well.

Practice. Also if your fingers are a bit damp and they touch the glue then the two sides will stick together before you want them to.

To do this you just flip the rollie over then you normally would then the glue sticks to the first bit of paper and you can burn the excess off to reduce how much paper is in your spliff, really easy and looks fancy.

To the OP if you have a big bag of sugar and a spare pack of rollies practice rolling sugar, I know it sounds stupid but if you can learn to roll sugar you wont have any problems rolling anything. You will end up being able to roll cigs that are nice and tight burn evenly and stay lit perfectly.

Zig Zag are terrible! The ones I use never, ever, ever stick. I just use the papers that come with the baccy.

My friends (here in Itay believe it or not) used to do when we were smoking joints. We called it the "bandiera", whih means flag.

Rizla are the best. Blues especially. Your hands need to be bone dry when doing it, make sure there's no lumps in the 'baccy. I roll because they taste better than 'straights'.

Blues barely smoke for me, they keep going out. I prefer reds. I don't like corner-cuts. They taste better and they're a lot cheaper.

Amber leaf skins are probably the cheapest, considering they come with the baccy Otherwise, Greens.

Or if you wanna drop down a level, Gold Leaf Reds are basically green just without the cut-away anyway.
Cutter's, reds/greens and extra slims are the way forward.

When it comes to papers, yes I'm a fan of blue rizlas. Although I find them harder to roll than the ones my sister used, which are bravo. But I hate them.

If it costs under £3.50 for skins and baccy, of course it's gonna be terrible

Marlboro Golds and Lucky Strike blues are my cigarettes of choice when I'm not rolling (Saturday nights and stuff..and always soon if I don't get the hang of this rolling biz

Lucky strike are horrible! I bought my first pack of them the other week, and it was like smoking Fibreglass. I quite like Chesterfields, though.

Lucky Strike got a few good mentions, one in Beverly Hills cop at the beginning and the other, in an episode of Smart Guy.

Other than that, they blow, if I'm going to give my self cancer, and not get stoned, then Marlboro Red is my choice of death.

As for rolling proper cigarettes and, not that other stuff, not since I was 19.

It happens, i usually find it impossible to roll when i'm really drunk or high. Then again, i find it difficult to do just about anything when i'm in that state.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

If you end up being completely hopeless at rolling, just take a cigarette and trace it. Its time consuming but if all else fails...

Sometimes you can't get papers here for months, I've used all sorts of stuff for doobz, like tampon wrappers...lol, they work pretty good and you can do a big one, just have to keep them a bit wet. In Jamaica they use brown paper bags and do huge ones that catch on fire. Best is a cigar leaf but that's expensive
