    Dr Pepper and Diet Dr Pepper (I don't want too much sugar, so I mix it up a bit). I take care of my father who has a brain injury during the day and I'm getting my masters degree at night. In between I chase my one year old son around pretty much nonstop. Basically the days are long and boring and I get jack **** for sleep at night.

    No comparison at all.

Tax that and they'll find another way around it.
    Reality contradicts your claims. Smoking tobacco has gone down drastically. When I was a kid, nearly every adult smoked, and plenty of kids too. Now, most do not.


    I've noticed a lot more young people smoking in recent years than was the case about a decade ago... wonder if it has anything to do with the societal demonization of tobacco, leading it to be one of those "alluring taboo" items.
    What you've noticed is contrary to what is known - the % of teens who smoke is lower than the % of adults who smoke. Goshin, I know you're a smart guy, so I know that you know that this whole "I noticed" ploy your wrote isn't worth the paper it's written on



    Bottom line... it isn't government's business to make healthy decisions FOR me. If it were, they'd send me a menu every week and tell me that was what I had to eat. You want that?
    Bottom line is that it is the govts job, and they're doing an excellent job when it comes to reducing the # of people who smoke tobacco

    Is that due to the price of cigarettes or increased awareness and social hatred of smoking?

    No, govt is not there to ensure the liberty of all. It is not there to ensure the liberty of rapists.

    A combination of factors, but IMO, the increased awareness and social stigma are in large part due to govt efforts to reduce smoking

    I don't think it has anything to do with the taxes, though.
