Well the price went up!
Does this want me to want to quit smoking? No.
I'm sure that its going to want to make more people stop smoking and you probably wonder why it hasn't stopped me. Even if I couldn't afford to buy a whole carton I would still buy enough cigarettes with what money I did have. Besides if the price of cigarettes can go up then my income/salary should go up to (although it doesn't always work that way).
Of course it makes me wonder just how much they are going to continue to raise the price of cigarettes and what are the people that can't afford it going to do. Not everyone can stop "cold turkey" and a lot of people don't want to stop at all but if they can't afford to buy them then what are they going to do?

It's A New Year and I'm Still A Smoker!
For the past month I have been able to have a good supply of cigarettes and for that I am very thankful. I get real cranky and irritable when I don't have any cigarettes! I even don't mind when they don't have the specific kind I want - as long as they have the brand I want.
I got on the bus today and a woman asked me if I smoked because she smelled it on me - which I find strange because me and this woman have taken the same bus for months now and this is the first time that she has brought it up. Guess she couldn't smell it on me all the other times that I smoked. She said that she gave up smoking years ago. She said she just suddenly decided to quit and that was that.
