I really dislike the new firesafe cigarettes and it is getting hard to find the regular ones. They really don't taste the same. Does anyone know of a brand close to marlboro lights that still available with the fire safe treatment?

Buy your cigarettes in Virginia. They don't suffer the "Fire Safe" garbage. They are much less expensive in Virginia also.

The best thing to do is Make Your Own Cigarettes.
Extremely easy to do, cheap, and they look like commercial cigarettes [with a filter]

Actually I smoke the natural cigarettes without additives. Roll my own at home and American Spirits on the road. The tobacco companies added chemicals to cigarettes to keep them burning so you consume more. The natural ones go out if you don't take a drag on them once in a while.

They not only don't taste the same; they are dangerous!!! If you don't take a drag at about the spot they have extra paper, when you do, the fire gets long and breaks off in the middle. The people who think these things are safe obviously don't smoke and are morons!!!

PA goes fire safe on Jan 1 with a six month transition ending June 30.

F_A, I know the American Spirit people are unhappy with how the new FSC affects the taste.

Why have they required circuit breakers on extension cords so people don't burn their house down with seasonal lights or big a/c units?

If you are sober and stay awake the new safty cigarettes should give you no problem. I understand you can buy an asbestos apron to protect your clothes, enjoy.

I've had the fire fall off too for no reason and there are also more ashes. They are dangerous! I was going though a lot more cigarettes because they burn faster. I didn't think the taste was the same either and I kept coughing. Others complained of coffing too. I recently bought a cigarette machine and haven't hit on the right strength yet but they don't keep going out and I've also quit coughing.

Calli, if I recall correctly, you're from Illinois. Do what I do, take a quick trip to Indiana.

I do thank you for your concern, but I don't drink. It's something I never aquired a taste for. Living with alcholics will do that to you. If I were to have a fear, it is that people will think they are safer and not pay as much attention to what their doing. They don't go out immediately when you drop them either. Time will tell.

Hi fellow smokers.
Those new firesafe cigarettes are really not a substitute for taste. They have an awful smell. They give me a head ache and i cough from them. I like to enjoy my smokes. And this is really taking away all the pleasure from it. Is there any petition or some legal entity that is against the "firesafe" cigarettes? I meen whats next,knifes that don't cut?
Is there a legal way to buy cigarettes from Virginia or Indiana? I will pay the extra tax for them but i cant be smoking these sticks any longer.

PS i dont want to quit smoking and i wont allow anyone to say that my problem is smoking. Its my right and i will fight for it.

The fire safe cigarettes have EXTRA chemicals in them that can make you really sick. That is why they taste bad.

The Coalition for Fire-Safe Cigarettes is working to save lives and prevent injuries and devastation from cigarette-ignited fires.The Coalition is calling for manufacturers to immediately produce and market only cigarettes that adhere to an established fire safety performance standard, and is working to see that this standard is required in every state in the country.

As I understand it fire safe cigarettes become such because of the way the paper is made. It's made with small bands of thicker paper which slow down or stop the burn unless you create a draft by sucking through the cigarette. There seem to be several ways you can get around this little problem so it's not a big deal. First on the list would be to stop smoking, but we know you're not going to do that. Next idea would be to take the paper off the cigarette before you smoke it. I think that would work best if you were slightly drunk and were wearing old throw-away clothing. Another possible solution might be to soak the cigarette in liquid oxygen, that is quaranted to keep your cigarette from going out. Using that method it might be best to be totaly plastered and have a friend standing by with a fire extinguisher. On second thought it might also be good idea to first line up a good plastic surgeon. I hope this info has been of some help, have a good day and enjoy.

I like the KY best light tobacco and the light tubes, its more like the ultra lights, but maybe just a hint of stronger. Very little though if any. Regular tobacco and light tubes are lights and regular tobacco and regular tubes are regular strength
