I have smoked Marlboro Red my entire adult life and enjoyed them. Now they make me sick, taste horribly, leave me with a dry mouth and cause diarrhea and nausea.
For a while I didnt know what was going on but then I heard: something was changed so they automatically stop burning to prevent fires. Nice one, well when some *** leaves his cigarette in his bed or anywhere else than an ashtray and kills himself that's his problem.
But what I hate most is that now the tobacco industry (at least in my country, Belgium) claims that smell and taste have remain identical. Look, smokers are fools, got ya, yeah granted but if the industry thinks we won't notice they are badly mistaken, so because friends of mine that smoke other brands feel the same I am forced to either quit or start rolling again like in the good old times.
So, just a word of advice to the industry: admit the change in taste, do something about it and then advertise that big time, because the first brand to come up with something smokeable (wichever one it is) might very well become the new number one.
