Question Is there a way to get tobacco to burn slower?

So I've got some slow-burning paper, and what is apparently quick-burning (cheap (I was on a budget)) tobacco. I have to relight about every other drag if I drag frequently--not only a waste of flint and fluid but also causing really hot smoke. Could I be packing it too tight or too loose?

Nice place you got here, by the way.

Edit: Upon further smoking I realized that every other drag is an exaggeration.

I'm kind of confused as to what's going on. If it's going out between drags it may be too wet or too tightly packed

If it's burning up quickly,it's probably too loose or dry

Or maybe you bought tobacco thats been expanded. Think rice crispies. That stuff sucks

I'm pretty sure it is expanded. I think I read that it is somewhere... I think you posted it.

Maybe I should try packing it more loosely. Good thing I've only got 6 ounces instead of a whole pound.

Edit: Well, I have a partial solution. I plugged one end of a stick into a pen cap to create a better seal on my lips.

Edit: Turns out the paper was the problem. It burns too slowly, surrounding the cherry with unburned paper and, I would imagine, limiting air supply. A different paper works perfectly.

Smile Tried and tested method

I have been using the following method for about two years to make my cigarettes burn slower. They generally take about three times longer to burn down to the filter and I snip them with a cigar cutter when they are halfway which makes the whole smoking thing 50% cheaper for me.

(1) Boil some water in a kettle
(2) Half fill a cup with white caster sugar
(3) Fill cup with the boiling water then stir until all sugar is desolved
(4) holding the cigarette filter up, dip them in the solution right up to the bottom of the filter and keep them there for a few seconds.
(5) Lay the cigarette down on a piece of card
(6) Repeat for as many cigarettes as you want then place the card (with the cigarettes on top) on top of a radiator
(7) Allow 24 hours for them to completely dry then they are ready to smoke

You will see that the cigarette paper turns brownish after doing this, but it does not seem to effect the taste. The slow burn might make you start dragging more frequently because you think it's going out, but after a while you realise that it stays lit and you trust to dragging as normal.
