How to smoke fewer cigarettes

This reminds me of the old joke about how to drink fewer glasses of wine a day — get a bigger glass.

"It's wacky, but it works!"

Basically a way to extend your cigarette breaks…

Wasn't the hypocrisy obvious when a woman smoked those and kept telling the man in her life that size doesn't matter?

When these, and the 100mm cigarettes, first came out there was an uproar from health experts.
Until the tobacco companies demonstrated that they contained the same amount of tobacco as regular filtered cigarettes. The 100s were just packed much more loosely (so much that more than once I demonstrated to friends that it was possible to bend them 180º without breaking the papers).
These 120mm ones just had a much smaller diameter tube.

I wonder if they were less safe than standard size cigarettes. I'm pretty sure that the tobacco at the front of a cigarette is less toxic than the stuff near the butt because the toxins build up as smoke passes through.
