sorry, another brand question.

is it easy to find the the same brands of cigarettes as sold in the US? or brands that are comparable?  or should i plan on packing a carton or two of my brand?

(this is not an invitation for ppl to warn me of the dangers of smoking; i know all of the dangers of smoking and how socially unacceptable it has become etc)

I don’t know if the taste is the same, but the major brands are widely available.

It would have helped if you told us what brand you smoke.

I’ve always been able to find Camels and Marlboros, but they do taste a little different.

Yep Marlboro’s are everywhere… most cigs made by Philip Morris can be found throughout the world, it’s all the same with localized brands

Philip Morris makes their cigs locally, that’s why they taste differently. That’s what people say, I have no way of knowing first hand.

Methinks it’s one carton per person import rule for EU.
