Have you ever smoked cloves?

I used to enjoy them (in my twenties) I smelt terrible and it was so bad on my throat

oh yeah, and i buy a pack every Dec and share them around. i barely inhale, but i like the sweet resin it leaves on your lip
@pentacorn I got better things for my lips. 😏

@DarkHeaven no doubt about it 😏😉
I tried them a few times, but couldn't inhale them. I haven't seen them since I was in college. I also tried bidis a few times; these were rolled tobacco leaves from India, tied with a little string. I used to also buy "Drum" shredded tobacco in the little pouches and roll my own cigarettes. I was never a regular smoker, however. I would buy a pack, smoke a few, then someone would ask to bum one and I would just give them the rest of the pack. I enjoyed the taste but the effect was too strong. I think the last time I smoked tobacco was at least ten years ago. I was out of town for a meeting and there was a cigar store, and being on per diem it wasn't a big deal to buy a Butera for $25.

I recently started vaping Delta-8 but I don't inhale that either as I can't tolerate it.

Djarums in the red white and black pack, not the Blacks, the regulars. For about a year on and off then I couldn't stand them anymore. I liked clove bidis better.

@MethDozer I smoked djarum blacks

@WaryWitchWandering those didn't really come out until after I was over the clove kretek thing... When I actually was buying them there was just the regular Djarums in a mostly red pack with a black and white slash graphic. Blacks and Bali Hai jusrlt atarted showing up out of nowhere I remember.

Those things are harsh!! I smoked them in my teens and tried again in my late twenties. My throat hurt like crazy!!

smiler2012 · 56-60, M
@WaryWitchWandering so what benefit where you hoping to get when you did smoke them
WaryWitchWandering · 31-35, F
@smiler2012 none. I didn’t care very much about myself back then and it was a stress relief
smiler2012 · 56-60, M
@WaryWitchWandering sorry too hear that was it a good remedy then for your stress problem

In my teens and early 20s and once at a concert in my 30s.
I have asthma so pretty much even being near someone else smoking them is a bad idea but I have partaken several dozen times.

We are talking back in the 70s when I smoked everything put in front of me.
