Americans give up smoking due to tobacco tax increase

A survey conducted by pharmaceutical giant Glaxo Smith Kline, which makes nicotine-substitute chewing gum Nicorette, showed that raising taxes on cigarettes in the US pushed 72 percent of smokers to make an attempt to quit.

If you live in the US, do you still smoke or the higher tobacco prices don't affect you?

I do not smoke because smoking will give you lung cancer. It has nothing to do with the cost. Its really very simple, if you have a death wish, Smoke. If you enjoy living, do not smoke.

Yeah, pretty much. Co-worker just buried her 45 year old husband. She's described all the stages in detail to me. You'd be nuts to smoke. Cancer sticks are literally what they are.

I smoke a briar pipe and the tobacco went up maybe 2 USD. A bag will last me about a month so it doesn't really affect me.

Occasionally I smoke cigars, and that is a noticible increase. About 2-3 USD a cigar depending on the type. I did start smoking fewer cigars.

If Obama can quit,,,,or can he?
He surley can afford it, or the new taxes he is going to impose on the less unfortunate

Ahhh....the lost art of proper grammer and punctuation.
I hope Obama makes cigarettes 15.00 a pack. I don't give a **** about the tobacco taxes. Nor do I give a **** about the taxes on the tobacco products that I personally smoke. It is a self-indulgence; not a necessity.

I can afford a lot more tobacco now at its current slightly-higher price than I could when gas (a necessity) was over 4.00 a gallon.
