cigarette culture

In several articles in saying that smoking behavior was first there in Native American / Indians as part of the ritual worship of gods / spirits, this culture mimicked by Europeans at the time of the expedition to the American continent.
Eventually these activities into a new culture among the people of Europe and extends into their colonies around the world

in Indonesia cigarettes history of the oldest period is estimated at around 1870-1880's. at that time there is someone who feels pain in the chest due to suffering from asthma. He then put clove oil on the body of the sick. It turned out that the pain had subsided.

Based on these experiences, Djamari was then experimented with chopping into small cloves (chopped) and mix it with chopped tobacco for later in the hand-rolled into cigarettes. From the sound of cigarettes 'kemeretek' sucked at it then was born the name of 'kretek'.

clove cigarettes is being produced by Nitisemito. He made cigarettes as a cottage industry to mass-produced first time in Indonesia. In 1908 the company Nitisemito get permission from the Government of the Netherlands East Indies with brand Bal three. A year later Nitisemito began to make clove cigarettes and in cigarette is actually grown into the industry, though still a home industry worked Nitisemito and his family.

In everyday life, acknowledged or not, for some communities where smoking is vital. They do not consider cigarettes as addictive, but a lifestyle inherent in the interaction within the community. Smoking is a loyal friend who had accompanied them in a coffee shop, stay up and means of making friends. Of a cigarette being offered is not difficult to make new friends for them. Thus the function of cigarettes here as well as a medium of communication. Strange? Of course not, this is the existing reality.
