This is the capsule some cigarettes had in the filter that would let you turn it menthol if you squeezed it.

Those were the best when they came out, but they swapped the tobacco to some real stale shit, probably because that little ball wiped out any other taste you’d have

You just unlocked a repressed memory from the 90s. I now distinctly remember getting ahold of a leaky glow stick at Skate City. It was all fun and games making my skin and t-shirt glow until I ate some pizza with a tiny remnant on my fingers. That taste. That horrible glowstick taste. I can remember it clearly now. Stuck around for days. I can't imagine getting a direct dose to the mouth.

To an extent. They use to be actual cigarettes with the tobacco wrapped in clove-flavored paper. These were banned in the US.

So, to get around it they wrap them in compressed tobacco and are sold as cigarillos, which are still legal. But not the same for sure.

Menthol is a local anesthetic. That's why it's included in cigarettes. Makes it seem like they aren't as harsh as "non-menthol" cigarettes because your throat has been numbed.

Smoked maybe 1-2 cigs a day for a couple years before getting into vaping. I was full on ripping clouds like Thomas the train with an rda for years, then discovered zyn pouches. Eventually quit vape in favor of zyn pouches which then escalated into about a pack a day. Not only was that expensive, it gave me stomach issues/gerd. I quit back in February, cold turkey.

I like using the American Spirit method for this by mixing some dried mint leaves with my weed.

There's a few other common seasonings that taste pretty good mixed with weed. My favorite is adding a pinch of rubbed sage as not only does it have a really nice flavor but it also seems to mildly potentiate the calming part of the weed high. Stuff like basil or oregano gives it an interesting flavor too but I personally find them kinda meh.

Step 1-all: Don't buy cigarettes.

It sounds dumb, but that was how I stopped.

If someone handed me one in a social setting, I would smoke it, if I had access to one, I would smoke it. However, it takes a conscious effort to purchase cigarettes. You have to say words.

So, I focused on that. Just don't make that choice, no matter what.

If an addiction doesn't have fuel, it starves.

That's what worked for me.

Camel twists were my jam. Those were special occasion cigarettes. So good.

Wow, memory unlocked. I used to smoke those occasionally when I had the money for them. Luckily I’m a former smoker now

Why is it being displayed on a flaccid micropenis tip?

i quit smoking 2 days ago but god those are so fucking good, i couldn’t smoke regular cigarettes after smoking menthol bc it didn’t give that same throat feeling like menthols do.

Just realized I'm coming up on 5 years myself. Until then, I was smoking half a pack of crushes a day, and was afraid I'd never get myself to actually quit. After that, I occasionally slipped up and smoked when drinking, but always threw the pack away in the morning. Now I haven't touched alcohol or cigarettes since COVID started, and I generally feel sooo much better.

That first week is definitely the worst though. Nicotine lozenges and skipping caffeine made it easier. Good luck to you.

Im 28 days clean from smoking Newport menthols. I started around the time when Covid started. This last year I was smoking about half a pack a day. By far my longest quitting streak in the almost 3 years I’ve been smoking and I’m hoping there isn’t another attempt to quit.

u/Dr_Dang Nov 29 '22

28 days is huge, congrats! Learning to recognize/anticipate triggers and avoid relapses was a big part for me early on. Not wanting to have to go through full blown withdrawal again really helped.

Have you noticed your sense of smell change? I became a supersmeller after I quit lol

I used to love this option occasionally when I was a smoker. I liked Camels and would smoke the Crush, then moved on to American Spirit when I got up to a pack a day. I took forever to kick the habit and it's been about 6 years. I still want one every single day, just know it won't make me feel good anymore.

12 years for me! Pretty crazy to think about. The first two years were hard but the rest has been smooth sailing. Can’t believe I ever smoked.

Keep it up! I quit for 7 years and started smoking again a year ago. Trying to quit again now but it almost seems harder this time. Those mango-flavored Juuls are what helped me last time but apparently they don’t exist anymore because… kids?

DO NOT pop these outside of the cigarette, They will permanently stain whatever they get on. My old roommate did on our grey granite countertop and that crap stained to top. It seemingly seeped into the stone.. we tried everything to no avail. Anyways smoking is disgusting so don't do that either coming from a Former smoker of Marb Reds

u/Ill-Technology1873 Nov 28 '22

Granite is porous, so would have ultimately been stained regardless

u/chromeVidrio Nov 28 '22

Thats exactly why it stained. It won’t permanently stain whatever.

u/Flossthief Nov 29 '22

Best way to consume these is

Smoke 8% of the cigarette and then pop this menthol ball so you get all that menthol in the last part of the cigarette

u/ParaphrasesUnfairly Nov 29 '22

Hell yeah, that last 92% is a real zinger

Ahhh Camel Crush Bolds. I don’t smoke anymore but I’d get these all time time. Would change your smoke to menthol at any time, I would do it near the end so I had a minty taste after.

Back in college, i smoke "menthol cigarettes" for a year without knowing that you have to squeeze it first. Always complain the "menthol" is just a scam. LoL

Why did you stick it to an anime tentacle-penis?

u/LawAndUsername Nov 29 '22

Man I tried some of these when they came out. Or at least when some came out. Early 2000s.

I was obviously not 18.

I miss underage smoking. Felt sooooo cool.

Really happy I quit a decade later, don’t smoke kids it’s fucking stupid. No one starts as adults really so I’m directing it at them.

u/Repulsive-Fun-7703 Nov 29 '22

These things in my opinion taste horrible! They give a nice crunch when eating your cigarette but as someone who eats a pack a day it gets over bearing.

u/Timmerdogg Nov 29 '22

Can they sell Camel crush in places that it's illegal to sell menthol cigarettes? Like it's not menthol...yet
