What are you doing when you run out of cigarettes???

Hey everybody, just out of curiosity I would like to ask you what do you do when you run out of cigarettes? I mean it can happen anywhere at any time, maybe they are finished when you are at work or at night when all shops are closed or you just can’t leave your house for one or another reason? I just like to know how other people react when this is happening, do you ask other people to give you one? Or you just wait peacefully until you can buy a new pack? Maybe it sounds strange to you but it’s interesting for me.  Personally, I never have been in such situations because I always got more packs of cigarettes in my bag when I’m leaving the house to work and at home I always have more than 5 packs. I just can’t imagine what I would do in case if such a thing happens. Any opinions upon this?

Hey Edwards, saw your post

Hey Edwards, saw your post and I was interested in your answer "what are you doing when you run out of smokes?" but I see you never have a such problem. Exactly as you, I was wondering what other people are doing in these cases because I have never ran out of cigarettes too. I'm always carrying 2 packs with me, whenever I'm leaving the house I check if there are two packs - one pack that I'm smoking during the day and the other pack is for when I'm done smoking the other pack, and I always have at least one carton at home.

 

However, I remember a similar situation: I never ran out of cigarettes but I ran out of the lighter, I mean that one time it broke and the other time the gas finished. Lucky me, both times I was with my friends and it wasn't a problem, anyway I think that if your lighter broke it's not as a big problem as running out of cigarettes. However, if you're all alone and you really cannot find any fire somewhere then you can have 10 packs of cigarettes and it's useless :D

Well, I try to avoid such

Well, I try to avoid such situation, even so - it happens. It very rarely happens but eh... I always have 2 lighters on me, if I have fewer than 5-10 cigarettes then I grab a new pack and the open pack I leave at home. However, someone up there really would like to see me suffering and it happened when I ran out my cigarettes and I had no money with me at the same time. Well man, that wasn't funny. I was craving so much for a cigarette. I just started to deal with no cigarettes. Anyway, I remember the first cigarette after that situation. Oh man, that was pure satisfaction. Like when you have your first cigarette in the morning but as twice as enjoyable. After that I was even more prudent about having either money, either two packs with me. If you would like to see how that is feeling then just get on an airplane that flies for 5+ hours. I never been in such situations but my friend does and he said that he was about to light up one in the toilette. No smoking ain't fun.

"if I have fewer than 5-10

"if I have fewer than 5-10 cigarettes then I grab a new pack and the open pack I leave at home." I also do this and I never forget about it because I always leave my cigarettes near my house keys and it's impossible to forget. Sometimes, when I know that I will be out for a longer period of time, I do the same thing as Fire Man, I'll just grab 2 packs of cigarettes and I know for sure that it will be enough for that day. I can't remember the last time when I ran out of cigarettes but I do know that it happened and it was such a horrible feeling. I was ready to do almost everything for a smoke :D

in my opinion it's good thing that you have a back up lighter Purple Swanson, I should do that, but at least I should keep a book of matches in my car. btw I have a pack of cigarettes in the car for those "black days" in such cases and it is there for more than half a year. I keep forgetting about it but I'm sure that if I'll ran out of cigarettes I will remember :D

You guys are ready for

You guys are ready for cigarettes deficiency apocalypse as I can see. I never paid attention to what I'm doing when I run out of cigarettes, I guess that's because I never just "run out" in situations where I can't replenish my smokes. I always have some money with me, I can't imagine leaving my house without my wallet. So each time when I had my last smoke I just go to any tobacco shop and buy my cigarettes. Forgetting or misplacing my cigarettes is another matter but whenever it happens (even though it rarely happens) I do the same thing when I can't find the open pack - go and buy a new one. I just got used to this simple method and I cannot remember the last time when I was without a smoke and I could not replenish my smokes. I don't know but I just hate people who are always running out of cigarettes and ask them from others. I guess this is the reason why I'm always trying NOT to be in such situations.

I’ve became a smoker not so

I’ve became a smoker not so long ago (only 4 years) and in all this time I haven’t run out of cigarettes yet, thanks god. I just make sure that there are always cigarettes near me. Even though I don’t smoke for such a long time I don’t know what I would do if I would run out of cigarettes and there are not a single shop open near me. Anyhow, there’s always a tobacco shop working 24/7 near my house and I always can buy them. I’m buying them during the night and during the day. Moreover, I always make sure to pick up another pack. I don’t have 2 cigarettes packs with me, but if I see that there remains only 5 or less cigarettes then I can take the next one. Anyway, now you’ve just made me even more aware of not running out of my cigs, it would be a really ugly situation if I even ran out and I’m talking seriously now. I really enjoy my cigarettes, without them my life would be a mess (and not so funny). I wish none of you to run out of cigarettes. Good luck with that and take care!

If you never been without

If you never been without cigs, I commend your management style. I been smoking for a few decades and it happens to me at the very worst times. Imagine running out of cigs and money and then having a nic fit. It ain't fun.
