I decided to abandon Marlboro

I decided to abandon Marlboro. It was a quick decision for me because I smoked them for 3 years. I decided to do this because I noticed that when smoked, Camel burns slower than Marlboro. In general I love Marlboro because it has a good taste but this thing that they burn too fast makes me angry. Every time when I smoke my cigarette with my friend that smokes Camel I feel very angry because I’m the first who finishes the cigarette. Is there somebody that maybe knows some good alternative to Marlboro, some cigarettes that burns slower? Not Camel because I don’t like their taste.

Hahaha, I understand you

Hahaha, I understand you perfectly! The same thing happened to me! I was smoking only Marlboro Reds for some years until I was told about Camel Filters. I love these cigarettes very much, I smoked them for a very long time, however they are my nr. 2. My favorite brand is Lucky Strikes. Anyway, I would rather choose Camel than Marlboro so to me you're making a very good decision. Even though Lucky Strikes is my preferable I do have every now and then a Camel cigarette.

Thank you man, I don't really

Thank you man, I don't really know why but I have never thought about Lucky Strikes, I think that these days I'm going to buy a pack and to try them out. Do you really think that they are good alternative for Marlboro? I also don't really know why but I really doubt that Lucky Strikes are the ones that I'm looking for, I mean - their tastes have to be soooo very different, but oh well, that's just my opinion, my expectations upon them. Maybe you didn't get me right, I really like Marlboro - I like these cigarettes taste, how it smell and how I feel smoking them, my problem is they just burn waaay faster than they should, I guess. Occasionally I have to smoke 2 cigarettes in a row. I want to know if there are some cigarettes that taste alike Marlboro Reds...

If you’re looking for

If you’re looking for something that burns slower, from my experience I can recommend you Seneca Reds. I noticed that they burn slower than Marlboros and I know this because I love Marlboro too. But if you love Marlboro so much you can try to change to 100’s Marlboro red. Just try them and I’m almost sure that you’re going to love them as much as you loved the normal ones, I think this will be the best option for you. Why to change your favorite cigs when you can change just their size and the problem is solved. Just think about this one more time if you really want to change them. Hope I helped you! Greetings

I never smoked Marlboro but I

I never smoked Marlboro but I often hear people complaining about this brand. I don't know how good Marlboro is and how slow it burns because I've never smoked Marlboro. I do smoke Camel and only Camel and I've heard people saying that my cigarettes are burning slower than theirs. Now I see that you even wrote about it. Maybe it's only me but I've never hear someone complaining about Camel. Personally for me these are the best cigarettes ever and I'm sure that you will say the same thing if you will finally try Camel once. "Besides the fact that Camel burns slower it even has a better taste."

Note! I'm a Camel fan but these are not my words! I've heard them from people who were smoking Marlboro and then as you, abandoned it and switched to Camel.

ThescalTaiv, I think you should try Camel one more time and reconsider your choice. I really doubt that Luckies are better than Camel, no offense.

You've got it so wrong! Of

You've got it so wrong! Of course, it is only your decision but I wouldn't abandon Marlboro for nothing in this world! I cannot understand why you are saying that Marlboro burns faster than other cigarettes, for example Camel. It all depends on how you smoke. I have a friend that smokes really fast and it doesn't matter what cigarette he's smoking (especially 100's) he always finishes his cigarette before I do (even though I smoke Marlboro which burns "faster"). I honestly can't think of a Marlboro alternative and all the thing with the faster and slower burning depends only on the way you are smoking. I really would do as Monvill said: try to switch to 100's if you cannot get enough from one cigarette. A lot of people who cannot get enough from one cigarette are smoking 100's.

Yeah, this is a similar story

Yeah, this is a similar story to mine since I have also abandoned Marlboro cigarettes as a matter of fact they are not the same cigarettes they used to be. I’ve been loyal to my Marlboro Reds cigarettes for more than a decade but this new Marlboro red they are selling in my country is far no the same reds cigarettes as they once were and I once enjoyed for so many years now. I’ve decided that since they are changing these cigarettes it is now time to say good bye and change the brand completely. Years ago I have smoked ML Reds and now I’ve tried several different brands and in the end I understood that I will return to my old buddy. Marlboro company lowered tar and nicotine levels and added some kind of a wrap around the filter which only changed the flavor and made it a lighter cigarette tweaking the blend. I cannot enjoy lighter cigarettes anymore and since Marlboro Red is the strongest Marlboro I cannot enjoy it anymore. I’ve abandoned Marlboro for about one year (it’s been a year since I don’t smoke these cigarettes) but it feels like it was only yesterday. I still remember the taste of their “good” and old cigarettes. Too bad those days are over. I’m just happy that at least for now there still are some normal full flavored cigarettes otherwise I would go nuts! Sincerely, I still miss my reds cigarettes, I’ve even wrote the company a letter but eh… who would change a big thing for a small person like me.
