Okay I will admit that this smoking is not healthy for me in the least little bit. But it is an addiction etc. Anyhow this is for those that smoke. The cost is getting higher here in the states. Minnesota is not so bad as opposed to many other states in the cost of smokes. But I smoke 2 packs a day so I always look for the special promos the cigarette companies oput out. I usually get the Camel buy 2 get 1 free or the Marlboro buy 2 get 1 free. It saves a lot of money. But then I also use my comp cash play on my card to get a free carton from the casino ever so often saving me over $42. Do you smokers get the bargain promo packs or stick to your one brand all the time? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Hey I just sent you a PM about this subject, check it out and good luck. A penny saved is a penney earned. Hey them pennies add up and then you can take them to the casino. Did any one ever tell you that smoking was bad for your health?

I just recently quit smoking, so I do know how it is. Its been about 7 months smoke free for me. I miss it though, and there are times its tempting to light up. I am not going to. I made a promise to my mom for Mothers day to be a non-smoker. That was my gift to her, so that is my incentive to not smoke. Good luck with that other thing, I didn't want to post that info for everyone to read, you don't want them to run out before you get yours. I got a coupon and gave it to my son.

Sure glad I quit. lol The law is now in effect here in IL that no smoking in public places. I can already see that it's affecting the bars cause usually they are packed and now I only see a few cars/trucks in the parking lots.

I tried to persuade my husband to buy the bargain promo packs too but he wasn't having it. He told me the other day he was quitting, and I just nodded and said "ahuh" LOL

2 packs a day?? Oh no, I hope you can at least cut down. Don't want to see you sick:( It takes me about a week to smoke a pack. So I'm a light smoker. I buy the generics they are about 2.50 a pack.

I smoke the same all the time. But I do get coupons once in a while. I don't smoke that much anymore......a pack every other day or sometimes every three days.

I'm a smoker too, Grandpa Bob, and I know it's not healthy either but so far I've been unable to quit. I think I'm just not ready yet either, like you said. Here in Pennsylvania my brand - Virginia Slims Luxury Ultra-Light 120's Non-Menthol - cost about $4.50 per pack. I get coupons through the mail for $5.00 of a carton, $2 off 3 packs, and $1 off one pack every couple months, which helps, plus about once a year they send me an order form where I can send in my UPC codes and get a coupon for a FREE carton for every 200 and a $10 off a carton for every 70. You can order up to 6 cartons, which is a great deal. They haven't had the promo packs for my brand for years so I really appreciate the coupons! Annie

Yes, thats true that smoking will give unhealthy benefit to all person and not even a little bit but a big bit. For me, and searching about it and knowing the physical effect of smoking. And smoking is a very dangerous to our health specially to our lung. And if we are new to smoking, we didn't notice the effect of smoking to our body and if the times come, and it is notice that our body is polluted of what we called a nicotine and even we have a cancer to lung. Maybe smoking have some benefit but mostly there are some disadvantage in our health.

I smoke... and yeah, I admit, it's not healthy. Even though it's really expensive, I don't switch brands. My husband and I buy 2 packs everyday and it's about $7. I've smoked Marlboro Lights for... Oh my goodness, 12 years now! Lol. Doesn't seem like I'm old enough to have smoked for 12 years. Anyways. I have smoked other brands, but not because of price. It was because I was out and bummed one from a friend. =P

Addiction to smoking really costs high. Aside from the high price per stick, your health will be at stake,too. It will greatly affects your health. And you might suffer from minor to major deseases as a result of heavy and continuous smoking.
