Smoking butts.

So my kitten will occasionally smoke butts, out of ashtrays, so yes, strangers. Disgusting I know. But there have been times when my kitten hasn't had the money or various other things needed to buy a pack and no one was around to bum one off of so he resorted to this. My kitten was just curious, besides say the common influenza or something is there anything particularly life threatening that can result from this? Also my kitten has always carried over a habit that he learned in his teen years, from friends, and that was to burn the filter not like black, just run a lighter over the filter to "sanitize" it. Now my kitten has always had doubts as to how much good this would do but continues to do it just to be on the safe side. Are there any benefits to this? Keep in mind the flame is only on the filter for maybe a couple of seconds

Re: Smoking butts.

The filter is made of cellulose, and when you burn it you'll definitely get a good dose of (carcinogenic) aromatic hydrocarbons. Well, you get those with the nicotine too.

But let swim ask, what is the point of smoking the filter? The ratio of nicotine to other carcinogens/tar/whatnot must be extremely low...

Re: Smoking butts.

SWIM is aware of the this practise, (not herself) but when they have collected the butts, they empty the remaining tobacco out and then with rizla papers make as such a "roll up" .... thus they never have to put the butt near their own mouths! Smoking papers are only a few pence and using this method will be better hygiene wise for SWIY! The filters on the butts could be harbouring infections such as cold sores - Herpes Simplex!! SWIM suggests getting a pack of papers and keep them for times when SWIY has no money for cigarettes! SWIM has seen this practise many times and they have been well pleased with at least being able to have a decent cigarette when funds are low!!

Stay safe!

Re: Smoking butts.

SWIM used to work in a supermarket, every morning without fail a man shown up and wondered round the car park picking tab ends up to roll into new(?) ciggarettes. It's a disgusting habit if you ask SWIM.

Re: Smoking butts.

When Sparkles was doing a detox years ago, a guy used to wander onto the psych ward and rummage through the ashtrays. One morning as he was about to put the newly rolled tab (from discarded cigarette ends) in his mouth Sparkles said..."I think it's only fair to warn you now, before you light that roll up, one of the tabs you used was mine, and I have Hep C, do you really wanna risk it?"

Glad to say he didn't, and he never got used butts outta Sparkles ashtray again, but how did he know that the other ashtrays were any better? He'd assumed I suppose? Sad that anyone is reduced to this, or emotionally unstable to the extent they're unaware of the danger?

Sparkles.

Re: Smoking butts.

SWIM too is sad to see this . she has seen it many times especially at her local pub where an elderly gentleman, is seen picking up the butts and making his own! SWIM thinks of it being like her when she was addicted to heroin, addicts do unfortunately take risks, one of sad side effects of addiction! NO she wouldn't share a needle, never has done, but she did used to share foil pipes on many occasions, to a degree same as smoking a cigarette butt???? Just a thought ....

Re: Smoking butts.

Girlie was reduced to this practice for some time, though she generally preferred to 'reroll' a cig out of the butts that were available. But she's just smoked them before too.

She doesn't see it as much different than getting a 'check' or a 'deuce' (horrible slang terms for 'can I get the last half/quarter of the cigarette you're currently smoking?'); she's done that to & from relative strangers (tho, naturally, friends are preferred).

She, in the 20+ years she's been smoking, never caught anything this way. Just because she DIDN'T doesn't mean one CAN'T, but I'd say it's *reasonably* low on the risk scale.

I should ask the doctor next time I go.

Re: Smoking butts.

swim has only taken cig butts from her fathers ashtrays, and of course only when shes really really broke... However when she does take butts swim prefers to tear them up and then reroll the tobacco inside with new rolling paper, so if you're planning on taking strangers ciggarette butts maybe you should give swims method a try

it's a little time consuming but I think it should help with any health risks you're worried about.

Re: Smoking butts.

I usually do this the morning after a party when I'm still too wired to sleep and I've run out of tobacco... Just go around all the ash trays finding dog-ends! Sometimes you get lucky and find some with weed in them ! I don't think there's much of a health risk to be honest... We're all human !

Re: Smoking butts.

when i was a kid, like in middle school we would do this. we would know which ash trays were the best, no grown up traffic, lots of butts. haven't done it in a very long time. have you ever looked into rolling tobacco, if you buy the right stuff you can smoke for very very cheap. a pack of cigs costs about 8 usd around here but i only spend 10 dollars on tobacco and 4 on papers every 3 weeks. smoke about 6 to 10 cigs a day, so its real low impact on the pocket book.

i never caught anything but always worried about getting herpes. sometimes you would get a virginia slim with old lady lipstick smeared all over, and we would pass on that.

could also try ripping them apart and then rolling the loose tobacco into a cig, that ways your not getting mouth to mouth contact with stranger.

or best yet think about quitting, ive been cutting back and really want to quit, ive just been wait until it really feels right to do, when my life is a little more stable.

This is what we mostly did.

Heh, when I was running the streets as a junkie, $10 just wasn't something I could afford. Although you could get a pouch of tobacco (w/papers inside) for about $2, so we usually did this.

When in high school, my boyfriend & I would reroll our own butts into new cigs, cuz we were either broke (so couldn't afford a new pack) or more often, fucking LAZY (didn't wanna leave the house to go to the store). *LOL*

Re: Smoking butts.

One issue with butts is that I believe there is a higher concentration of tar, and maybe other constituents and chemicals. The extra tar may make butts more likely to contribute to smoking-related disease.

And it's for exactly those reasons that I don't engage in this practice any longer. These days, if I'm out of tobacco, I'll either hit the e-cig, or just go without.

Apparently, I'm also supposed to be trying to quit smoking again tomorrow. *blink* Eek! I said I'm down to try, so long as using my e-cig doesn't count as 'smoking'. It doesn't - the goal is to stop inhaling combusted plant matter, not stop the intake of nicotine. So e-cigs, patches, gum, lozenges are all fair game. Heh.

Now I'm drifting too far off topic, so I'll sign off here...

Re: Smoking butts.

If a person must smoke a discarded cigarette, at least breaking off the filter would help with the health issues some. Some people have their lips all the way past the filter, but not that many. Once you break off the filter, it is a LOT safer than just smoking it with the filter on.
