Hey all,

I have found something that works wonderfully for practicing cigg magic, as well as performing. They are "quit smoking" cigarettes that look exactly like a real cigg, but there's no tobacco, it's one big filter. That means it's durable and will last for months! It will get too dirty to perform with way before it even bends or breaks....

You can get them at any major place that sells a large variety of ciggs. Let me know what you guys think....

Thanks,

Matt

Casual,


No problem -- Enjoy! I remember before I discovered these, I would wrap clear tape around regular ciggs to increase durability -- that works too!


Glad I could help,


Matt!

I picked up a pack of these some time ago. Another good thing is they're minty fresh!
You can also use "puffer" cigarettes. They're those joke store cigarettes where you blow in the end and a puff of powder comes out the other end that resembles smoke.

Try some white heat shrink tubing. John Cornelius mentions it in a set of his lecture notes, for cig manipulation.

If you still prefer using regular cigs and want them to be more durable then you should roll them yourself.
double or even triple roll them.what I mean by this is use more cig papers for one cigarette. that will make them more durable and this is also recommended when you practice different lit cigarette eating material.

If you're serious and want to use what the pros use, you can drop $20 for a durable, realistic wooden cigarette, hand-crafted by John Rogers over at http://woodencigars.com/

The cigs come in different lengths, both lit and unlit models.

I understand Alan , but the cigs beeing made out of wood doesn't it make it difficult for them to stick to your tongue when practicing tongueing?
