Ya I smoke. This thread is geared towards the UGers that are legally of age to smoke.
So how much does a pack or carton cost where you live? I live in Michigan (If you live in Michigan I'm sure you're aware of it. Not the fact that you live in Mi. but the tax incrreases) and our wonderful governor has pushed thru tax increases on cigarettes of $2.00 + over the last 2 years. A pack of smokes is now over $5.00. Ya I know you folks in Canada and Europe pay more than I do. However I have just reduced the cost of smokes to under $10.00 a carton. How you ask? I'll tell you how. I just bought a machine that makes smokes for $25.00. A pound of tobacco for $16.00, and a box of pre-rolled papers and filters for $2.00(Qty. of 200). A pound of tobacco is supposed to make about 500 smokes. So I figure I'm going to down around $8.00 - $9.00 a carton.
It took me about an hour to make a carton.
Anyone else do this and if so is it worth the effort for you?

I live on the border of two counties. In one, the average price is $4-5

In the other, everything starts around $8.

Holy ****! That's like 2 packs a day. You fingertips and nails on the index and middle of your dominant hand must be permanently stained.

Dial it back to half of that, if you can. That'll also reduce the time needed to make a weeks worth from 1 1/2 hrs to 45 minutes.


Or just join the military and go overseas. They don't charge the GI's tax.
That's where all the money is in tobacco.

oh my fuckign god. and i used to say i hate the souther US. you wont see anyone buying a pack that cost more than $5 here.
#25
Yeah it's pretty bad. When I'm short on money I switch to rollies which is about $17 including tally-hos and filters, which ends up making I'd say about 70+ ciggies which is pretty good.

hahaha my ex used to do that. ... and she'd get pissed at me if I snuffed it out after she left one burning in the ashtray and left the room.

The guys in the service who didn't smoke used to buy cartons and take them off-base and sell them to the black marketers for about 5 times what they bought them for. Some of them got caught and MAJOR trouble came down on them. Morons.

For a pack of 25 in Australia it's normally $11-$12, but I roll my own which normally costs about $25 for the tobacco, papers and filters but you can normally get around 130 cigarettes out of it.

Ah the advantages of living in a nation where tobacco is native...

I usually smoke American Spirits (rather expensive cigarettes by American standards). They run me about $5.25/pack in Baltimore. But I'd say the average price is floating around $4.15 here.
