I just got a new car, and I noticed some oddities about it. Specifically, there are no ashtrays or lighters. There's a pseudo-ashtray/mini-cupholder in the front, and a power outlet instead of the lighter. Since I do smoke while driving, this is a bit of an inconvenience. But anyways.

For those of you who smoke, a few questions. Do you smoke all the way to the filter? Or toss it halfway? Does anyone smoke halfway then save the rest? When smoking in a car, will you flick the butt or use the ashtray? I generally will flick out the window on an open highway, no cars nearby. In town or in heavy traffic I use the ashtray. If you're standing outside smoking, and there's an ashtray nearby, will you bother stubbing out the butt or just toss it on the ground/in the street?

For those of you who no longer smoke, how are you doing? It's a month into the New Year, how are those resolutions coming along?

I do. Smoke halfway and save the rest, that is. I probably only smoke like a pack every two weeks though.

Yeah, I'm down to about a pack a week, and that's smoking full cigs. I could just quit outright, but it gives me something to do while I'm driving.

Relighting a half cigarette is like putting some 4 hour old coffee in the microwave. It works, but the effect isn't worth the effort over getting a fresh one.

I smoke the entire thing or else consider it 'done' when I snuff it out. Don't smoke in the car often and when I do I find a place for the butt other than the window. I'm pretty anal about that -- I'll drop a cigarette and step it out, then pick up the butt and throw it in a trash can if an ashtray isn't available. I dislike seeing drifts of discared butts as much as any nonsmoker.

I hardly smoke in my car - I think it smells hideously -, but if I do, I toss the butts out of my window. This in contrary to..

I will walk a bit to throw it in a bin.

When I was a two pack a day man I smoked non-stop in my car. I used the ashtray. Had to dump the thing at least twice a week though. I smoked em down to spun plastic filter, burning my fingers to a nice calous. On the street, I had mastered the "cool" flick, end over end in to the gutter, or a sub-basement utility vent in the sidewalk.

I, however, no longer smoke. I quit. Ha ha, fookers. I made it.

Of course, now I chew tobacco like a mo fo. meh. :\

I can land buts in an ashtray from about 10 yards away. Unless of course, the still burning part detaches like a MIRV and spoils the trajectory.

I also roll lit ciggerettes down my hand like poker chips when I'm bored. When I was in the USAF I played more than one game of Cigeretter Chicken where two people press their forearms together from teh elbow to the wrist and then someone drops a lit ciggerette in the meeting place of the two arms. First one to pull away looses $10. Made a lot of money and a few tasteful scars that way.

Used to be a 3/4 pack a day smoker. I don't know what kept me from smoking those last 5 to go ahead and make it a full pack a day. Anyways, I have to agree with Jophiel on the lighting up a half smoked cigarette thing. At that point the taste is terrible, it tasted like I was licking the bottom of the ashtray. (That is just my assumption of what I think an ashtray would taste like. Just don't want you to think I run around licking ashtrays.)

Let's see. As for the rest of the questions:

-Always out the window and never in the car's ashtray (I am a bad person)

-If there is a receptacle nearby I would use it.

-And whether out the window, in the receptacle, or on the ground, I always made sure it was completely out first.

But that is all behind me. I went "Cold Turkey" about 11 months ago and feel great about it. I find it much easier this way than with previous attempts at quitting by "cutting back" and avoiding the situations where I would normally smoke. And I found that by not avoiding the cigarette exposure it is much easier to get past the desires the next time. I still stand next to my smoking friends, I still sit in the smokey bar, etc. It makes me stronger to be around it and still able to say "No"

Whatever happened to the Who Is Strongest contest? If you are going to re-take up smoking, why bother to even trying quiting? All you do is piss off your SO while you are cranky from a lack of nicotene.

It doesn't make sense to me.

I don't usually smoke the whole thing anymore. I smoke just enough to get my nic. fix, and then toss it. I never relight a cig.

I smoke in my car, but rarely since I only live about 6 minutes from work. I don't smoke in my house though, and standing around outside to smoke is a real drag in the winter (no garage or anything to shield the wind), so there is another reason I don't finish them.

I keep saying I'm going to quit, but my god, it's so hard.

Most of my pot smoking was done via a pipe made of the finest oven baked plasticenne complete with faucet filter screen from the dorm kitchen sink. Classy! Smiley: grin

We also occassionally used the famous paper towel tube with aluminum foil. Trust me, actually using a metal one hitter was like dinner at the Ritz in my dorm room.

Usually a 1 hitter. looks like a bat, and has a "dugout" you can store extra herbals in :)

As for me, I've been into these new papers called "Maize" they're made from corn! yum

Ohhhhhh, okay. I've just always called them one-hitters. Not that I would know anything about any of this. Nope. Not me.

Honest.

(Actually, for the record, I stopped smoking cigarettes long ago. I do, however, enjoy cigars when I can. Macanudo Maduros in various sizes are my day-to-day choice.)

I do pretty much the whole range, I have a flat glass bowl, a metal pipe with lid (my travel bowl), a 30-inch clear glass bong and a pack of Zig-zags in my room. Considering everyone I live with smokes and tokes, our place is constantly filled with smoke. Collectively we have around 6 or 7 large bongs, 2 small bongs, and about 2 dozen pipes of various size, shape and paterials.

I realize my nice new car is going to smell, but it really doesn't bother me. Neither does relighting cigs (or nuking 15-hour coffee for that matter). I tend to keep the window(s) open when smoking a cigarette, and will vent a window to blow a hit out.

I generally smoke 1 and a half packs a day, though I am up to two packs a day now. Strange how you smoke more when you are unemployed. Gotta find a job soon, the old bank account is looking pretty slim.

I always smoke the whole cig, nothing pisses me off more than to see a half finsished cig in an ashtray. No way in hell could I re-light one that had been put out. That is just disgusting. I do have a friend however, who gets his nic fix because of you half smokers. He will collect and re-roll all those halfies. Disgusting bastard.

Out the window usually. And if I am outside, I'll use a tray if it's close, if not it gets stomped out.

Best played if you are drunk. I've made over $100 at a time, and have the scars as bragging rights.

When I was a regular head, all of the above. Me and my friend had an assorted collection of everything in our trailer. My favorite was a little homemade bong I had, that was quickly dubbed "Black Death." It was made from a two foot long shoot of bamboo, both ends open, wrapped up with electrical tape with a bowl scavenged from an old STP metal/glass pipe that I had.

Nowadays though, I roll.

To those who flick out the window...How many times does it come back in? No, I didn't just do this, but thought I did since the window is a bit smaller. But I have, a few times. Once a burning butt blew back in, landed between my back and the seat, then rolled down to my ass. That was scary.

A friend of mine at university used to stub cigarettes out on his scrotum. Just for sh*ts and giggles. I kid you not.

I had quit for a couple months, but then I went to England over Christmas. I quit again as soon as I got back. I'm too weak to not have a cigarette there. Everyone there smokes, everywhere. It's far too tempting to be able to have a cigarette and a cup of coffee in a restaurant after a big meal. Jesus, I'm only human.

Lol, damn you Totem.

That'll teach me to let a thread go a whole day with out reading it.

Honestly, I'd say I smoke about a pack a year. Just because I can.

I moved to VA from CA, so you could imagine my shock when I went into a restaurant and people were smoking.

Smoking became less fun when the threat of my Mother driving by my place and catching me, then stopping so slap my butt stopped being an issue.

Used to smoke a lot, years ago. 6 teenage friends, 4 of which had jobs, 0 had any rent to pay=a lot of beer and cigs and weed.

Eventually, we all had at least one pipe and one bong named after us or by us. I was the last to join the group, so by the time I had gotten there, they had;

Pipes:

Hurricane - twisty cloud colored pipe, with carb.

Gumby - Named after one of my buddies, nice green pipe, with carb

Oh sh*t! - Some kind of mini-vacuum they attached a metal bowl to, light it, flip the switch, and... Oh sh*t! *cough*..

Bongs:

Puffalufagus - Big purple bong, about a foot high

Green Lantern - See through green bong, they'd put ice in the chamber, then a green glow stick. Mostly at night :)

Joey- 6 foot bong we named after our friend Joey, the biggest pothead we ever knew. He moved to Humbolt CA.

McGeyver - Sprite bottle, tin foil bowl, straw mouth piece. /shrug, it worked.

I know I'm forgetting a couple, but hey, what do you expect? Smoked a lot back then.

Later on they added the pipe "Skeeter" to the collection.

I was the first to stop, then my friend James stopped and joined the Army, Gumby was next to stop, he joined the Airforce, Gumby's brother Chris stopped, is now in the process of joining the Airforce, but I hear he has started smoking again.

Come to think of it, I'm the only one out of the bunch that hasn't joined any of our Armed forces.

Did you know, that if can read music, and join the army, and are good enough to get in the "Army Choir", you start out as an E3?

Was tempting.

To the OP, when I smoke, it's usually all the way down, but I find that it's a bit too much for me if I smoke it down all the way since I rarely smoke.

Smoking and driving? No way. I seriously get light headed still with one Cig.

I like the smell of Black & Milds, I guess they are like mini-cigars?

I think there is one in my car, for the aroma :)

As my breaks during the work day only last as long as my cig does, I usually smoke down to the filter at work. At home I am a social smoker, only smoking as much as my friends.

Can't stand saving a cig for later. A re-light is a terrible thing.

In my car, I will usually toss the butt out the window unless there is a coke can in one of the cupholders, then it goes in there. I never use my ashtray, as that is reserved for loose change.
