They stopped selling 10 packs here, which were 3.50 so now you can only but 20 packs for 7 quid, which is crap for party smokers like me.

"Everybody hates smokers." I dont. I dont have a problem with them in the slightest. In fact, most of my close friends smoke. And even though I smoke sometimes, my girlfriend doesnt, and SHE doesnt even hate smokers.

God damn generalisatons. They're ALL wrong. Twisted Evil

From the article: Because smokers tend to die earlier than nonsmokers, they do not consume as much health care in old age or draw on Social Security as much as nonsmokers do. Leaving aside Social Security savings, a 1997 study in The New England Journal of Medicine concluded that total health care spending would go up, not down, if everyone stopped smoking.

See? See? We're doing you a favor, for f*ck's sake.

7 is like, what, 14 in the U.S.A.? Christ. I'd be smoking things my dog wouldn't eat if they were that pricey here.

This has always been my point when debating this topic with the Health Nazis. Smokers are efficient when it comes to death. The statistics used in promoting the health risks in second hand smoke are unadulterated bullshit, and when faced with the true facts HN's resort to "it's about the kids". HA! They are fucking their kids! When we smokers die, and nobody else takes up the habit, who will pay for all these government programs that have been financed on the backs of we the smokers. Their kids will. Show me an "entitlement program" that has been decommissioned. Show me one that has stayed within it's original scope. Show me one that has been cost effective and not increased by at least 5% a year. Ha ha ha! It's for the kids!


End of rant. I'm out of breath. Shocked
