Whatever helps, right?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought just the one pack of 'Chong' when I decided to quit tobacco after 14 years (about half my life) as a regular smoker. I guess anything that makes giving up smoking a little easier is a good thing, but don't expect a like-for-like tobacco replacement.
The taste is... different. Imagine inhaling burning horse feed. That being said, I've smoked cheap, crappy import tobacco in the past, which has probably tasted worse, but this stuff must take some serious getting used to. That being said, I guess the smoke does feel lighter and cleaner than tobacco, although that might just be auto-suggestion at work.
If you can get past the strange smell and flavour, I would warn that you'll need to look out for sharp/lumpy bits in the mix, as I found that there were a lot of twigs and the like which you need to remove before rolling, as they will otherwise tear holes through your cigarette papers.
I didn't buy another pack when I ran out. Instead, I switched solely to electronic cigarettes for a few months and then quit these too. This might work as a tobacco surrogate for some; for me, it only really helped in that it made me realise that smoking nothing seemed a preferable alternative to smoking 'Chong'.
