Making your own cigarettes at home is easy if you use a cigarette making machine. Electric options make it possible to make an entire pack in about 10 minutes. I have found, by watching the video tutorial, that it is cheaper and much more efficient to make my own at home. It is estimated that by using the pre-made tubes and bulk tobacco that the cost of a pack of cigarettes is reduced to just about $1.00 USD per pack. It was also made clear to me that the proper proportion is just over a tablespoon of loose tobacco, that has been pulled apart and rid of sticks and stems, to make a single cigarette. The process is easy, by simply tapping in the tobacco lightly and pulling a lever, a perfect cigarette is made every time.
