Advantages: can roll a roll up without one
Disadvantages: none if you have nimble fingers
Whilst trying to stop smoking well at least cut down a bit, I decided to go back onto the roll ups. Roll Ups for those who are fortunate enough to have never tried smoking and hence never take up the evil habit Are hand made cigarettes that you roll yourself using tobacco and cigarette papers, and if like me you are a little inept at that then a rolling machine as well.
There are several types of cigarette papers on the market and there really isn't too much to choose between them, however I have always used Rizla papers and the green one's are my preferred type from there extensive range. There are 100 papers in each packet of papers and they are interwoven pretty much in the same way that paper towels are. They cost in the region of 22p per pack and are readily available in most good tobacconists where loose tobacco is sold. A good bargain on these papers can usually be had a most markets where a pack of 12 packets can be purchased for around a quid.
The papers are rectangular in shape with the dimensions of 7cm long and 3.5 cm, they are folded in the middle. The bottom edge of the paper has the corners trimmed which makes the cigarette easier to roll especially if you are using a rolling machine. The top edge of the paper is gummed along it's length so that on completion of rolling the gummed edge can be licked and pressed on the cigarette to complete the manufacture. The different colours of packet signify the thickness of the paper. The green ones are quite thin and you can almost see through them, but they are for their thinness quite strong which is an obvious requirement considering the possible punishment they might encounter. They burn well which is another advantage since I have purchased cheap papers which were not so good at keeping alight.
Summary: A good paper which burns well and makes a decent cigarette.
