Fire safe cigarettes? Any smokers noticed this?

If FSC is printed on your pack of cigs, I'm sure you've noticed that if you don't hit your cig it self extinguishes. When you light it again, it taste like monkeydoo. While this new law that went in effect is good for some,(if your my pill addicted MIL that falls asleep with a cig in her hand eventually burning her fingers, blankets and whatever else she's wrapped up in or sleeping on) it really pisses me off. Why are the rest of us punished for others irresponsible actions?

Since this law was passed I have cut down smoking a lot, but still go through the same amount of cigs a day. If my cig goes out, I'll ditch it and light a new one because re-lighting it taste like monkeydoo.

I've been searching without success to find the new ingredients of this fire safe cigarette. WTH?

  • Because it's just oh so easy right? Oh...let me just go throw my cigarettes out now because you said to. C'mon need to berate the woman. Yes, I have noticed this actually started like 2 months ago here and it sucks.I like to smoke my cigarette slowly...actually 1/2 of it would usually burn away before I actually hit I HAVE to hit every 10 seconds or it goes out. So I think its making me smoke more!

  • cute. anons are being cockfussers this morning.

    Quitting isn't easy while the rest of your family smokes and you can't change their ways or seclude yourself from them.

  • I talked to an American Spirit promotional guy at Sams Club. I asked the same question and he stated the there are three different places in a cigarette that they put a STARCH. He stated it is to prevent people falling asleep and catching their house on fire. I didn't know that was such a problem that the gov. needs to spend money on this.

    But check this out I asked the guy if he was giving free samples and he said it's a law that they cannot give free samples. BUT he said to follow him out to his car. I did and he gave me 4 free packs of cigs. Yeah!

  • My sister smokes, and she's upset because if she moves up here from Georgia to Pennsylvania, she's gonna quit because, like you said, "The fire safe cigarettes taste like ass." Lol. She feels so bad for my SO, who smokes, that she actually sends him cigarettes from down there!
