How much does a pack of cigarets cost? I've never been to the states before, so I have no idea.

Haha it's over $10 for a pack in the UK. AND it cost me $120 to fill my car with gas last night.

I can't wait to move to America this year! I'm SO fed up with being ripped off in the UK.

02-02-2007, 08:14 AM
yeh about $4, but you also make less in America than in the UK. so it's a trade off. And about the accent, I'm a girl and I had the same experience...Girls go nuts over you! And guys think you're easy. Something about accents in America.

my advice would be on the way here to pick up a carton (if you're a smoker like me) at a gas station or a 711 - it's way cheaper than getting them at a grocery store or something, no matter if you buy them by carton or pack. anyway if you have some left over you can take them back to the UK =D

cigarettes are so goddamn cheap in taiwan, they sell for like $1.50 a pack. when I flew back here i went to the duty free shops in taiwan and bought 6 cartons of reds for $72. you have no idea how much i did not want to buy cigarettes after i finished those. it was like i had gotten them for free.

toolisbomb
02-02-2007, 12:51 PM
i smoke marlboro reds so a carton of those at a gas station/711 are about $35, although it depends on what brand you buy.

The thing is, if you're European and speak English, chances are, you speak it with a British accent anyway.

Just get free packs in the smokers tent. Between myself and my friends(3), we got around 12 pack. Just fill out the little card with your info or BS, and they hand it over. If you ask for 2 or so they kick them down. Or just say you have a friend that is 18-20, and cant get to the smokers tent, since its in the beer garden(21+).

Free natural american spirit is fucking awesome. I will be using and abusing this service very nicely....
Do they offer varieties or just the blues or something? I wanna get me some perique blend action on!

GTI_GRL
02-25-2007, 11:31 PM
they had at least 8 different kinds, lights, menth, special blends, unfiltered, etc...... The better blends are gone early, so get there quick. On Sunday of last year they were handing out packs w/o filling out the card, or offering 3+ pack. When we went in the evening on sunday, it was down to unfiltered (i think), and a couple of other not so popular styles.

Coachella wins so hard. They better do it this year, it will save me buying a carton of them on the way in.

So theres only 1 accent in Britain. Nice 1 i hardly see a spaniard speaking in a thick geordie accent.

I think they should be playing the movie "Thank you for Smoking" during Coachella. $5 - $10 for a pack of cigarettes? I would think that most of you hipsters on a budget would wise up and quit the filthy habit.

Having been subject to second hand smoke in bars and clubs over the last 18 years, I never could (nor will) understand the appeal. Coachella allowing a tobacco company to hand out cigarettes is so stupid. I bet nothing could be more refreshing on a 105 degree day at Coachella than a cigarette...

I buy mine from the internet and I think they come from the Ukraine, been doing it for a few years now and it's wonderful. 3 Cartons at a time. It comes out to about 1.80 a pack. $57 for 3 cartons we get marlboro lights. They rock at that price but I don't know if it's legal or not.

Be aware that you are in smug southern california. If you smoke in the beer garden people will start to bitch about your smoke. Just bring pot and make everyone happy.

smug southern california? hey buddy, just so you know, our smugness is slowly infiltrating the rest of the country (a la the bans in NYC, the proposed ban on smoking in restaurants in SIN CITY itself las vegas...which even though that hasn't been "officially officially" sanctioned, i hear most restaurants are voluntarily banning it anyway).

HAHAHA!!! =p (seriously... i absolutely hate cigarette smoke, but i do feel sorry for you folkswho have fewer and fewer places to enjoy your vice).

we have a smoking plan in ireland. no smoking in any public bars, restaurants - anywhere pretty much. but ya can smoke on the street ok.
as a smoker, its wonderful! i love it. I can now go out on a friday night and instead of smokin 40 cigs, ill only smoke 5-10 cos its too damn cold to go outside and smoke.
smoking bans rule! everywhere should have them

nic_ball
02-27-2007, 02:26 AM
lol
i recently gave up smoking but find it difficult when i go out drinking not to have a smoke!! i usually give in to the temptation on a one night stand type basis, after all, fags are bad!!
but if there was a smoking ban like the one we're getting in july i'd have no choice but to not smoke.
