    Only time I like a tab is when I'm speeding. Doesn't make me a bad person...

    wonder how many people would be supporting the changes if they were alcohol related, only buy 2 pints etc.

    They will never be banned. You can get a box of 20 lambert in Gibraltar for exactly £1.

    They are circa £10 in this country. Too much tax is made off them

    Which is fair enough but you have remember whilst its still legal in the rest of the world more so europe you have a problem. I do think it wiĺl decline naturaĺly anyway (with a nudge here n there from the state) that theres no need for a ban any time soon

    New packaging is pretty suave; makes me feel cooler when I buy them.

  11. When Australia changed to clear packaging it had an impact on the smoking rate. It won't stop everyone, but it will have an impact.

  14. I don't think they should be banned, despite my similar job to you. The fact I smoked from age 14 to 31 may have something to do with that.

    I think they should limit where you can buy them to traditional tobacconists which aren't open at unsociable hours though. None in super markets, garages, off licences, or newsagents etc. Basically just make it a chore to get them.

    I often think that there must be a sweet spot where there is an "acceptable" level of smoking that stops it being a massive drain on resources. Never gotten around to modelling it.

    The outcome is the same though.

    Demand exists
    If prohibition exists, illegal trade will exist

    Its exactly the same as all illegal drugs, whether they be tablets, powders, herbs or liquids.

    Why ban it? It isn't allowed in public buildings. If people are daft enough to smoke then let them...?
     
  19. Demand is going down in the western world. You're right in what you're saying, there will always be a demand, I can see the smoking rate dropping to below 10% over the next 20 years or so though. It's less socially acceptable and is expensive as fuck, less people start now. Current smokers will either quit (for health reasons or financial) or die off.

    Seen the price of a gram of coke man? I couldn't afford a coke habit and my job is half decent.
