Rolling cigarettes into thin tubes for smoking is a timeless art. Nowadays, many people buy their cigarettes pre-rolled, but there is something nostalgic and gratifying about rolling your own from time to time. You can roll cigarettes yourself using a few basic items found at most tobacco shops, and the cost of buying these items isn't more than a pack of cigarettes. Also, one pack of loose tobacco will make more cigarettes one traditional pack.

  1. 1

    Fold a square of cigarette paper in half so you have a crease that makes a slight V-shape in the paper.

  2. 2

    Drop a few pinches of loose tobacco into the bottom of the crease.

  3. 3

    Place a round paper filter at one tip of the fold.

  4. 4

    Roll the paper around the filter until the paper becomes a thin tube.

  5. 5

    Lick one edge of the paper and place the other edge on the damp line, securing the two sides together.

  6. 6

    Tap the end of the cigarette with the filter on a table to pack the tobacco.

Tips and warnings

  • Use a small amount of tobacco to practice with until you get the hang of rolling.
