PLEASURE WARNING: Quitting smoking now significantly reduces your feelings of pleasure.
I just got back from vacation and while roaming around, I picked up a few cartons of my favorite brand, Marlboro Smooth 100's. Around where I live, I was having trouble finding anyplace selling these cigarettes that weren't older than 6 months, so I switched back to my second favorite cigarettes, Marlboro Red 100's. I happened to stop at a discount store at one my destinations and there they were. I've already finished a carton and they're exactly how I remember them.
I started smoking with Newport Box 100s around twenty years ago. After about 14 years, I tried Marlboro Red 100's for the first time and made the switch. I found Marlboro Red's much smoother and I really liked the flavor. Since Marlboro Red's are a much lighter cigarette than Newport, I found myself smoking a lot more which was a significant benefit. After about a year, I started to miss the menthol and went back to Newports. Frankly, I love the feeling of the smoke deep in my lungs and with Newport being so strong, I smoked fewer Newports than I had Marlboro Red's. So I switched back to Marlboro Reds. With Marlboro Smooth 100's, I have the best of both worlds, plenty of rich thick smoke and menthol freshness.
