Iv been trying to get my mom to quit, becuse of course smoking is bad for you, and they are to expinsive to buy and keep up with the habit, these are the reasons why I'm glad I dont smoke, because of so many reasons they stink and there can cause health problems, and they take up all your extra money, but I defintly think that the price of cigarettes is getting really ridiculous, Iv seen how much they cost and I hear others complaining about the cost of those things, I mean why are they charging so much for cigarettes and dose the fact that the price is so high make you want to quit even more??

We just bought a couple of cartons of cigs. I can't believe how expensive they are. I have decided that its time....you know, when you plan the whole quitting process. I quit for over 2 years and then the Hurricane hit and my mom lived with me. So it was done. Since then I haven't fully had the urge to quit again utnil now.

i have something to worry about, if the price is so high that many somker can't afford it, some of them may be possible to make money in illegal way which will result in serious social problem. so i think it is unwise to rise the price so high in order to make somkers quit.

they should quit even though they knew the price is skyrocketing. What reason to take those things if they cause so many harms. Encourage them to chew gums.
