      Hi Members,

      I am just wondering from smokers how much your paying in your area for a pack of smokes. I know in Chicago its the highest tax in the country. Not to mention liquor taxes.

      A pack of smokes in Chicago costs 9-10 bucks! I usually have to travel out of the county to find them cheaper.

      When buying a drink now in some bars...there is a tax! Buying a cocktail for 12 bucks.... will now cost 12 bucks and change. I'm not sure if anywhere in the country anyone is taxed on a drink. In fact i think that is illegal. Businesses are trying to absorb the liquor tax and charging the customer.

      Interested to hear what people are paying....i might just have to move!!!

      Nahh don't move Lips, here's some info for you

      http://www.ryocigarette.com/

      You can roll your own or do the "Injection Method) (I do have the equipment for both) and they also have the electric cigaretts.

      I usually buy (across the border) at a local cigar shop tobacco by the pound and the tubes are $2.50 each for 200. I can usually get 3 cartons out of $47.50 but the "Blend" as not quite the quality of Camel/Marlboro however, for that "Fix" it's good.

      If I bought Camel/Marlboro I'd be spending my previous amount for just 1 carton.

      There's a bit of trickery also going on. Before, they had Cheyenne Cigarettes. With a change of paper, they became "Little Cigars" and thus, they cost $3 a pack (Not including tax) instead of $4.59 a pack.

      Hi lipstick,
      maybe you want to move over here to europe, im not a smoker but my hubby is and here in portugal you can buy a pack of cigarettes for around 3.50 euros (around $4.50 i think).
      As for alcohol(more my specialiality) you can get a  beer for around 2.50 and cocktails for around 5.00 if you steer clear of the touristy bars.

      Yup cigs are getting really expensive and they are going up $1.00 a pack again on 9/1/09.  This is a federal tax I understand.  I have a friend who gets them for me at the military base so I am now paying $3.60/pack for generic USA Gold.  In regular stores they are $5.00 and change.

      As to liquor, I tend bar and every drink is taxed, but the tax is included in the price where I work.  So no pennies lol.  Also beer prices are going up soon here too.

      Where will it stop?

      People, I just QUIT smoking after 35 yrs. And I loved to smoke, I was Marlboro reds, then went to Newports for 10 yrs.  Well I did the CHANTIX, THIS IS THE ONE YOU CAN STILL SMOKE ON IT. I did the 30 day starter pack, costs $120 I know, and you need a prescription. Got it from my Dentist, yes dentist. I went 5 days and that was it, all I needed and after 35 yrs I can smell like perfume not smoke.  The prices going up so high is what got me, when you add up the amt of $ in a wk you spend on this bad habit then you'll get pissed and say enough!! I am spending money on something that is not tangible I cant eat it or see it after I smoke it it's gone money down the drain.

      Hey lucky, good going there, but in truth the money for smoking could be said for gambling. You get "something" but unless you win in gambling, you get "nothing"

      I think that for most, a "Helping Hand" be it some group, or item to help quit is effective, though I have heard cold-turkey is the most reliable method.

      I think I'll wait

      Added for Taadaaa and others "Possible" benefit.

      100mm extra long roller (I need to get a new one.

      The "injector" It was on sale at the website I posted Cost was $20 with $8.95 shipping.

      Has been a good tool and is heavy duty steel.

      jump up again,  2 months or so ago it's at $5.75.  Now, $6.25 for a box of Marlboro in California.  I consider buying tobaco with rolling paper and roll it up to save some money >:( >:(

      I know TAAADAAA, I am in California too!!  I smoke menthol so I can't roll those myself.  I did come across a web site that sells seeds, they had all kinds of flavored tobacco seeds.  They say tobacco can grow anywhere and it takes about 6 plants and 4-6 weeks to make a carton!!!!!  I am going to try it at least once!!!  lol

      Here in Ohio i think its about the norm.

      A pack of marlboro's are 6.10 a pack..that includes the tax.

      I usually just go to sportsbars and the drinks are very reasonable. About 2.50 for a bottle of budlight.

      I do like the draft prices during happy hour and all Ohio sporting events on TV. You can get a 24 oz. draft for 2.25 during thoses times.
