    Also straights are better for you. they are cleaner
    I've always referred to straights as the pre packaged Marlboro type cigarette, which are definitely not better for you.

    I think they are, they come with in built filters remember, plus you smoke less of them on average. Remember i have smoked them all, for ten years, and so yes i do think i know what i am talking about!!

    Not starting at all is much cheaper.

    Can't see the point in starting the way things are now. When I started the tax was much lower and you could smoke almost everywhere. You could smoke on the bus, you could smoke on the train, you could smoke inside pubs, clubs and gigs. You could smoke at work and if you went round to someone's house it'd be impolite for them not to whip out an ashtray and let you smoke there too.
    You're paying a huge wedge of tax for the privilege of making a social leper of yourself.
    This.

    Well, it is much better not to start at all. That said, if you want to start I would go and buy a pack of Golden Virginia rolling tobacco (12.5g should be enough), some rizla's and filter tips which will cost you about £6.50 in all. I like GV as it's got a nice sweet taste to it and it's not too harsh on your throat. It is also far cheaper then buying straights which will save you money in the long term. If it's your first time smoking, you probably won't like your first smoke but give it 4-5 and you'll get more used to it. Don't worry about the rolling problem, it took me quite a while to get the hang of it but I got there in the end and now I don't really think about it. Although you can by a machine to roll it for you, I would just get used to practising rolling it as it is a real pain to have to carry round a machine with you everywhere you go! Hope this has been useful, but before you start I really do hope you do think about how smoking might impact your life and really considering if smoking is worth it.

    haha what? with rolling tobacco you're supposed to buy filters anyway, also have you ever opened up a straight? there's like 3x more tobacco in it, also, the paper part of a straight has a specific amount of chemicals to ensure the cigarette doesn't go out, rolling cigs often go out if I don't drag on them for say 30 seconds or more.

    You also smoke less if you're smoking 'rollies' as you have to roll one every time you want one as apposed to just opening a pack and nipping outside

    For a new smoker, is it best to start with rolling tobacco or buy manufactured ones? Also which brand is best? Please don't talk about the health impacts of it.

    Why have you decided to take up smoking though? What are the benefits in your eyes? Like honestly, everyone I know who smokes is trying to quit. It's not cool anymore, everyone knows it's gross so I'm just curious why?

    If you're so set on starting the bad habbit, why don't you just start with one of those vapour things that have nicotine in them. Same hit, lower health risk

    Straights are the more expensive option, I’m more of a casual smoker and only smoker and only smoke rollies when I’m stressed out and need a fag. But if you’re a full time smoker, tobacco, I’m crap at rolling but they’re still smokable 😂
