They're actually thinner than a cigarette. They taste fine too. Only problems is they go out if you don't take a drag regularly. That's why we see Buk light them again and again at his readings because he waits too long before he takes another drag.They actually look thicker in the picture, like kingsized or something.
well, beedies don't have cut-tobacco inside as cigarettes do. They consist of the leave being rolled. That's all. No additives or anything.... non-tobacco ...
Try an Indian market if you have any in your area.These are a lot more difficult to find anywhere
than I had previously thought.
I agree. This was obviously written by someone that has never smoked. I need to count it some time, but it is probably closer to 20 times for a regular and probably 28 for those people that smoke the 100's..."Smokers puff on a bidi cigarette approximately 28 times as opposed to 9 puffs on a regular cigarette" though. What smoker only takes nine hits per cigarette? None I've ever known (except maybe when drunk and you forget that you lit it).
Me too. And I still believe Bidi's are nicotine free, at least until I can get it verified.Interesting. I thought that bidis were nicotine free.
The beedi "cigarette" IS just 1 single tobacco leave. A "natural" cigarette.And I still believe Bidi's are nicotine free, at least until I can get it verified.
As far as I know Bidi's are not made out of tobacco leaves so how can they contain nicotine?
Actually, as a cigarette smoker, on average, I take between 7-12 drags on each cig. Most of these are taken at work as I try to have a two-three minute refuge from the latest cluster-fuck I need to solve. I've also regularly taken 5-6 drags and hit the road.I don't buy that "Smokers puff on a bidi cigarette approximately 28 times as opposed to 9 puffs on a regular cigarette" though. What smoker only takes nine hits per cigarette? None I've ever known (except maybe when drunk and you forget that you lit it).
After reading this, I had to try for myself! Bill, I'm right with ya, it took me 13, however if I really wanted to I could have taken one last drag off of what was left making 14. Prior to trying this I would have said 15-20. I know a guy at work who always seems to smoke his marlboro light in under 60 seconds everytime! It's an exaggeration, however the dudes quick, so I'm putting him on the project. I'm really curious to see how many it takes him.I checked mine yesterday and it was 14. Of course, I drive all day, so I can smoke 'em down to the end....
