Default Lucky Cigarette?

Hey guys, I know some of you may not know what I'm talking about, but I've met quite a few smokers who do this and I was wondering why they do. Does anybody here do this thing where you make like a "lucky cigarette" in your pack of cigs? It's like where you flip one of your cigs upside down and leave the rest right side up. I've tried googling it but all I get is results for "Lucky Strike cigarettes". I really don't understand why some people do this, I guess maybe it's to remind them that they need to go buy a new pack or something, but I just really don't know for sure.

Yeah, and also like they have this rule where like the lucky cig has to be smoked last or something. Like, if you smoke the lucky cig before you smoke any of the other cigs in the pack- then like that's some sort of bad luck. I also think maybe it's like an excuse not to give your last smoke away, like if someone bums a smoke off you and you only have that one that's upside down, u can say "I can't give you this one, this is my lucky"

i don't know where the tradition stems from, but they say you smoke the one turned upside down last and it is your "lucky" cigarette...but that is an interesting question, i wonder too from where it originated!?! Anyone on this board know?

Yes, hello there, the reason people put one cigarette in upside down is because when someone bums a smoke from them, the person asking for a smoke reaches into the pack and pulls out the upside down smoke because people don't want you touching the filters of the other cigarettes in the pack. Nobody knows where your hand has been and they don't want you touching their smokes. If you bum a smoke from someone that has an upside down cig, you are supposed to grab that one by the tobacco end BECAUSE it is upside down. It is there for you that way on purpose. If nobody bums a smoke from that pack, the owner of the pack smokes it and then flips one over on the next pack. It don't have nothing to do with luck of the draw or such nonsense. It is for sanitary reasons.

Interesting. My girl would kill if somebody laid their hands on the upside down cigarette.

From what I know back in the old days Lucky Strike supposedly would put a "lucky" cigarette in random packs, the "lucky" cig being pot laced and having some identifying mark so you'd turn it over so no one would know. Thus being a Lucky Strike, although the name actually comes from the gold rush. The pot thing is urban legend.

I see it as a tradition, although with smoking Luckies it's hard to tell which ones upside down.

It's just an old superstition gimmick. But also means that you leave it till last and if someone tries to bum a smoke from you, you can show 'em it's your last one.
