    Neither food, nor drink but this seemed the most appropriate place for it.

    For those of you that smoke luckies, what is a good substitute brand? I'm in dire need of a decent substitute as, whilst I'm away from Uni, there's a distinct lack of newsagents, supermarkets etc. around home that sell these beauties. I'm considering just reverting back to rollies for a while.

    (And before anyone suggests them, I'm no fan of Marlboro Lights... sorry)

    I just bought a packet today! I usually smoke those, rollies, Marlboro reds or lights, Camel (the cream ones, the blue ones are disgusting) or Pall Mall (but only the orange ones are decent, they are so cheap though!)...or maybe try Mayfair. They don't taste as good but are of similar strength...

    Marlboro Reds is what I would switch to if unavailable

    Marlboro Reds are my current substitute but I'm still not majorly won over. Might give Pall Mall or Mayfair a try, but if they're as dirty as I imagine them to be, I think I'd rather go with rollies. I only fork out for luckies cos they're so much nicer than everything else I've ever smoked. Never tried Camels but I know they're generally pretty rare and I've never seen them around here so that's a non-starter.

    Buy a 10 pack of Mayfair or something. Pall Mall orange ones are pretty hard to find and red are pretty ****, don't taste of anything. So yeah, rollies.

    Benson & Hedges is okay.
    Caballero's are relatively cheap and come in big packs. I enjoy their taste anyway.

    Otherwise I stick to good ol' dutch shag (rolling tobacco): Van Nelle, Javaanse Jongens. You do know that they make Lucky Strike rolling tobacco too?

    I didn't. I haven't seen it over in England. I doubt we get it here. I never see unfiltered luckies over here, for example, like they have in America and other other countries. Apparantly Lucky Strike filters are much more popular on the continent than over here though so it doesn't really surprise me...

    I've found a few places that sell silvers. They're not even that close by though... and I much prefer reds.

    I tried watermelon ice cream a few days ago. I wasn't very impressed. Just thought I'd let you know.

    P.S. Smoking is dirt - especially roll-ups. Sort it out! :p:

    Haha, yeah I have no problem finding them in Cardiff. My local offy about a 30 second walk away from my house sells them. I'm just stuck in a fairly isolated part of the North of England for the summer (too expensive to live at my student house over summer ya see...) and all everyone seems to smoke is Richmond and Marlboros.

    If I were you, id try Dunhill or Camel (Cream) although rolling your own is always more satisfying!
