    Roll-up Cigarettes
    I have been smoking roll-ups for about three years now. I find that I don't have any breathing problems or heart problems so I was wondering if manufactured cigarettes have something in them that make you ill, compared to roll-ups which are just tobacco and paper.

    I think it is common knowledge that cigarettes manufactured, especially the 'lites' have more addetives to make you addicted. I'm certain that the regular cigarettes have addetives also, but they don't seem to be as strong to me because I don't have to smoke too many. I tried to stop so switched to lites and they made me smoke more as it seemed I was not getting the 'smoke' value I needed even though they did not taste as good. Now, for change, I even smoke a good cigar now and then. I got rid of alcohol 25 years ago, but I can't and won't leave them cigs alone, got to have one (well two) vices and I won't tell you what the other is.

    I may only be 18 and I probably don't have a lot of "Life experience" but yes as far as I know taylor made ciagrrettes do have more chemicals in them than rollies. I'm not saying rollies are good for you and I wouldn't say that at all. Rollies are definitely not good for you. Smokings not good never has been and never will be. But if you enjoy it why stop. You only live once live life to the full and remember have fun with whatever you do.

    When I roll my own I tend to not take as big a drag, and smoke less of the cigarette. Maybe that's why you aret noticing any effects. However, maybe you haven't smoked long enough to have breating problems. I've been a smoker for 15 years and I'm just starting to wish I had never started. A great medicine to quit is called chantix, its working for me so far

    You are young and have a lot of years left in you. You are better off quitting.

    Apart from the additive issue also with rollups if you use thin or super thin papers, you are not inhaling as much or if any heavy paper smoke as you do with medium weight papers that are used in manufactured cigarettes

    My grandfather died from emphazema in 1972. He smoked roll ups for over 50 years. Back then cigarettes didn't have as many of the additives that they have now. I think roll ups have less additives than the hundreds of additives that cigarettes have but that could still be in the hundreds
    I heard that Golden Virginia and American Spirit are the most natural tobacco there is.
