        I am a smoker. I love to smoke, I have smoked for 22 years. I can't imagine my life without smoking. I know it is bad for me, and I know I need to quit but I just don't want too. Well, now that cigarettes are going up again in cost, is this what will finally get me to quit? I tell you I can't afford much more in the taxes on Cigarettes. I live in Michigan and they are already taxing us to death on smokes. A pack of Camels cost me $5.50, and after April 1st will cost me appx $6.50
                  I seriously am thinking of quitting. Will this new rise in price make you consider quitting too? Or will it not affect you enough to make you quit?

        No way!! I'm not going to let the government control my life and my body!! >:( I've been smoking for 14 years and not planning on quitting anytime soon...not with the life I have! There is a little hope, though! I smoke Camels, too, and I get coupons from them (you can get as much as $2.00 off a pack!). Just sign up at this site:

        I've been a smoker for too long to remember and I do want to quit - not because of the price but purely for my health.  But it will be hard as I really do enjoy a smoke especially when Im gambling and more so when Im playing poker.  So if I do decide to give up it will be for me and not because they are too expensive.  Don't have too many things in life that I really enjoy but smoking is definitely one of em!  They cost £5.00 over here which is about $7.50 US

        I will definately not quit!!  I live in tennessee and the price of marlboro's went up to $5.09 per pack plus tax so about $5.79(tn tax is 9.5%).  But I really like to smoke.

        Phewwww $7.00 bucks a pack and rising? Do you smoke? Are you going to quit from the cost?  It's just so unfair that everytime someone's budget is short they hit us with the "SIN" tax.  I am not political, I just feel overtaxed on something important to me.

        yup, a pack of Marboro in California is now $5.75 at a gas station, if you buy it somewhere else it might be higher.  I really can't quit, but when I pay for cigarette at the cashier, my pocket is hurt.

        Wow~ I am really enjoying every one's posts. I think my case is very unusual since I did quit when I got pregnant with my son and even after he was born but  few months ago and I went back smoking again :'( why started again? I honestly don't know. I used to smoke only occasionally one  or two cigarettes per week but now I smoke about 4 or five cigarettes a day or so. I sometimes buy a carton at wholesale store  but usually at 7-11 store for $4.79 but if you buy two packs at the same time, I get $.70 off  so why not? but today  I found out the price and  I was shocked how much price went up at safe way store-$53.49 per carton so I went to cigarettes discount store today and bought a carton for $40.49 and hopefully it will last few months. Me too, I think I am going to quit  eventually not because of the price but seriously for my health. Having a hubby like mine who don't smoke, gamble, drink is very nerve breaking, feels bad for nothing always.
