I liked the Winston ads with sloguns like "I don't smoke to be like everybody else" and " If I am going to smoke, I am going to do it right" and of course "I won't settle for anything less than taste". I started with the full flavor ones but changed to Winston Lights around 1980, mainly because I liked the gold pack.

I was given my first cigarette, a Marlboro Red, by a friend I really looked up to.
So when I started buying my own it was Marlboro Reds that I bought.

It is too bad I couldn't chose two options because the great Marlboro ads just made me feel like I had made the right choice.

I really haven't settled on one particular brand yet. I alternate between, Marb Golds, Marb NXT, Camel Blues and NAS Yellow.

My parents smoked Winston Lights which I perceived as a boring brand so I went looking for something else as my brand.
A friend's father who was a cop and I really looked up to smoked Salems and I decided to go for them instead.

When I started smoking, I smoked what my friends did which was Red Marlboros, when I decided that I really liked being a smoker, I started trying different packs and after smoking Blue Camels for about a year, I tried Camel Filters and really liked them so settled on them as my brand.

I don't really know what made me buy Marlboro Gold cigarettes when I started smoking. As I enjoy smoking them I never switched to another brand.

When I was 19 I competed for the Ducati GP team which was sponsored by Marlboro. At the time I smoked Camel Blues but wearing Marlboro leathers, I felt obliged to smoke the brand that sponsored me so changed to Marlboro Reds.
Although I don't compete professionally any more, so can smoke whatever I want, I still smoke my Marlboros.

When I started smoking two years ago there was only one brand for me, Marlboro Reds just like my father. Over the years my father when asked why he smoked Marlboros, had said many times that if you decided to smoke you should smoke a real man's cigarette and these are that.

Most of my smoking friends smoked Marlboro Lights, so that was my brand when I started. In college I dated a girl who smoked Salem Lights so for the three years the relationship lasted that was what I smoked, changed to ff Salems when we broke up. For a while I smoked Camel Crush and for the last ten years or so Parliament 100's is my brand.
