Has anyone switched YOUR fav cig to less tar and less nicotine......I smoked marlboro reds and wanted to STOP smoking so I switched to marlboro lights ...... Just asking and FYI it didn't work for ME
The difference between the two is .3 mg of nicotine. Don't think it would really make a difference since you are still feeding those brain sensors. You might even need to smoke MORE of them to get the same high you are used to getting.
It probably won't work for most people - just one way to postpone the inevitable if you choose not to be addicted anymore.
Thank you for sharing
I switched to light when I smoked because I thought I was doing myself a favor smoking less tar and nicotene. I could justify my continuing to smoke by cutting them both down , and convince myself , but the fact it wasn't making any change to the damage already done . Only quitting permanently , not one puff could do that for me . Cutting down may work for some but it did not for me . I'm an All or nothing and I chose nothing . That worked .

Remember when Carltons first came out and they were so low in nicotine and tar everyone thought they'd be a great way to quit? Didn't quite turn out that way.
Yes Carlton - I bummed one off a co worker and it wasn't enough nicotine for me and I asked her why are you smoking these she said she was quitting smoking- just sharing
I smoked Marlboro ultra light regulars...wow haven’t said that in a long time...
I smoked many different brands over the years, settled on Marlboro Special Lights...or something like that, 100's and no matter what I smoked, I still smoked. I tried brands I hated but I still smoked them. It was an all or nothing thing for me. NOPE.

Yep I remember trying that several times over the 40 years that I smoked and I ended up smoking more and I definitely tried to inhale deeper to get the extra gunk into my lungs BUT thankfully we don't do that anymore YAY for Smokefree living!

Never changed the brand and shifted to light. Till the last day, smoked the same cigarette !
Last day, I bought full packet, smoked half and half packet kept in drawer ! The last cigarette I smoked was also half !
I touched that drawer after my 200 days smoke free. Then with love and hate (both) I pulled out drawer, and threw remaining half packet to trash bin outside building !
And said Good Bye !
Just remembered above, it was some six years back story. Now NOPE !
I switched to Carltons in college when a professor recommended if you're going to smoke, these have the lowest tar an nicotine. I smoked them for many years. I started switching to other light brands as the prices went up. Carlton's became real expensive. Did it make a difference? That remains to be seen.
