Default Smoking “style” revisited

There are many ways to smoke a cigarette!
How do you hold your cigarette?
When you take a drag, do you put the filter just inside your lips or does it go behind your teeth?
Do you move your head when putting the cigarette into your mouth?
Where on your lips do you place the cigarette?
Do you inhale quietly? Some ppl make a lot of sounds inhaling and exhaling.
Do you hollow your cheeks?
How do you inhale?
How long do you hold the smoke?
Mouth exhale, nose jets, multiple exhales, combo?
Which direction does the smoke go?

I generally hold my smoke right hand between index and middle finger between 2nd and third knuckle. Opposite while driving.
When I go to take a drag I usually cock my head so my mouth moves to the left.
Cigarette ends up just left of center.
Usually the filter ends up past my teeth. I hollow my cheeks for the last second.
I typically take the cigarette out with lips sealed then a moment later open my mouth for a quick, deep silent inhale.
Typically hold for 2-3 seconds then exhale quietly half the smoke through my mouth and finish with nose jets.
I tend to protrude my bottom lip so smoke ends up directed upwards.

How do you hold your cigarette?
Between index and middle finger at first knuckle
When you take a drag, do you put the filter just inside your lips or does it go behind your teeth?
Usually behind my teeth
Do you move your head when putting the cigarette into your mouth?
Not usually; I bring the cigarette up to my lips
Where on your lips do you place the cigarette?
Center
Do you inhale quietly? Some ppl make a lot of sounds inhaling and exhaling.
Quietly
Do you hollow your cheeks?
From start to finish
How do you inhale?
Slowly and deeply
How long do you hold the smoke?
At least three seconds
Mouth exhale, nose jets, multiple exhales, combo?
Typically mouth exhale with a residual or two
Which direction does the smoke go?
Typically, straight out

Just a note - when I’m sitting around smoking to concentrate on the pleasure, I’ll do all sorts of different drags, inhales, and exhales.

Default Style

I used to smoke in front of a mirror the first few weeks that I started. I wanted to look natural doing it before I
started smoking openly in public. I haven’t done this in a long time. Just like lighting up, most of what I do I do without that thinking about it. I plan to look at myself smoking in the mirror just to see what I do.
I can tell you all that I inhale deeply and usually hold it for a couple of seconds and usually have some residual smoke. I sometimes exhale through my nose. Like most habitual smokers, whatsoever I do I do because of habit.

Rita, you do things to make the cigarette habit fun and interesting. As much as I enjoy smoking, I have yet to do the stuff you do. It looks like you try make smoking something more than just a habit.

Smoking is fun! I find that varying up inhales and exhales add to the enjoyment.

How do you hold your cigarette?
Between my nails on 1st 2nd finger
When you take a drag, do you put the filter just inside your lips or does it go behind your teeth?
Usually just inside lips, but if I'm multitasking, I put my 9" brown holder in my teeth
Do you move your head when putting the cigarette into your mouth?
Not that I'm aware
Where on your lips do you place the cigarette?
In the middle, slightly to the side sometimes.
Do you inhale quietly? Some ppl make a lot of sounds inhaling and exhaling.
I do, I love the 'pop' I make as I pull my holder from my lips.
Do you hollow your cheeks?
Most of the time
How do you inhale?
Very very deep
How long do you hold the smoke?
Very long, sometimes so long my messed up lungs absorb the smoke and nothing is exhaled..lol
Mouth exhale, nose jets, multiple exhales, combo?
I always do snap inhales, french inhales. With a long brown 9" holder and long More 240, makes for quite a site.
Which direction does the smoke go? I usually blow it straight ahead. Sometimes up.

Since most of us will probably smoking for many years to come, we might as well make it as enjoyable as possible. What you are doing makes sense.

Usually in the right hand between my index and middle finger, just ‘below’ my 3rd knuckle. When I am driving, I use my left hand, holding my cigarette just like I do when using my right hand. I hold the cigarette itself about half way between the filter end and the burning (cherry) lit end.
When you take a drag, do you put the filter just inside your lips or does it go behind your teeth?
When I first light up, I place the filter far enough back in my mouth so that my teeth can slightly clench down on the filter. After that first, long drag, I usually put close to 3/4’s of the filter between my lips to prevent any smoke from escaping (and air entering) through possible air vents.
Do you move your head when putting the cigarette into your mouth?
Not usually at least I am unaware of any head movement.
Where on your lips do you place the cigarette?
About 1/2 inch from the corner of the left side of my lips with the filter slightly touching my teeth.
Do you inhale quietly? Some ppl make a lot of sounds inhaling and exhaling.
Yes, usually no sound however occasionally I will release a slight ‘swoosh’ sound.
Do you hollow your cheeks?
No.
How do you inhale?
I will often inhale with a nice snap, ‘re-inhaling’ the smoke that is in my mouth before it ‘escapes.’
How long do you hold the smoke?
Anywhere from 5 to 7 seconds - sometimes longer, depending on how long its been since my last cigarette, allowing the smoke to sit longer in my lungs to supply me with that extra bit of satisfaction.
Mouth exhale, nose jets, multiple exhales, combo?
I usually exhale from my mouth, on the left side of my lips but will occasionally release the smoke thru my nostrils - I love seeing the residual smoke escape from my lips/mouth after an especially long drag/inhale.
Which direction does the smoke go?
I usually release the smoke and exhale in a straight line from the left side of my lips/mouth.

As on ‘add on’ to this thread, I’ll occasionally look down at the pristine, all-white filter and watch as it slowly changes its color from a light shade of yellow after the first puff to eventually seeing it darken, deeper and deeper with each drag I take, knowing that the ‘smoke’ is feeding my lungs with enjoyment and pleasure. I'll usually take one last look at the filter (before crushing it out) to see just how dark it has become - a sign to me just how much pleasure I've received!!!

I do this all. The. Time. I look at the filter before and after most drags and enjoy watching it saturate to a deep yellow, brown color. If it’s not browning evenly I’ll roll the cigarette a bit in my fingers to a new position to try and even it out. I also really like watching the smoke trail out the filter after a drag but sometimes think of it as lost pleasure lol. If the filter isn’t darkened to my satisfaction I’ll chain another so I guess I use it as a dosage tracker too!
