Howd that happen?! Can anybody enlighten me?

Well, you're not alone, as I smoked menthols briefly in the past, but, moved back to Marlboro Red 100's, but, about a year ago, I started to get cravings for menthols, not quite sure how or why and I tried a number of menthol brands for a short time, but, then moved to the Reds, but once again, right before I got married last September, the menthol cravings came back again and after going back and forth between Newports and Reds, I decided that I would primarily smoke Reds and rotate in a few packs of Newports as a good change of pace over a couple of weeks and a number of fellow smokers I know do this from time to time, to help change things up and as one fellow smoker told me "it helps clean things up", as we all tend to inhale a little deeper on menthols.

Let us know how it goes and if you find a good mix going forward, depending on your area and what's readily available.
