    Tobacco

    Do you use any form of tobacco?
    Cigarettes, cigars, chew, etc.

    I am curious...

    I smoke, I know it's bad for me, and I am not quitting.

    Fair enough. I'm not advocating either side.

    But, I'm just wondering:
    How do you feel about higher taxes on tobacco? Do you feel taken advantage of?

    I don't like it for purely selfish reasons. I think if you are going to do sin taxes, you need to tax all sins equally.

    Re: Tobacco

    No tobacco products usage for me, and I believe the tobacco tax raises to be silly and foolish.

    In the UK you can no longer smoke indoors so as far as im concerned nobody should ever bother me again about it.If i was fat random people wouldnt come up and complain about what im "doing to my body" so leave me alone.

    Re: Tobacco

    Yeah I smoke on and off, for the past 15 years.

    I'm not bothered by the tax hike but hear a lot of romanticising the past lower prices by some. I agree with others about sin taxes, if you tax one, you should tax all, and possibly even open up some other markets, such as marijuana.
    I'm what Willis was talkin' bout.

    Re: Tobacco

    I smoke off and on, mostly on though. The sin tax sucks and is simply the government telling me what is best for me.

    I've been known to enjoy a fine cigar on occasion.

    Re: Tobacco

    I smoke, but only about a pack a week, so not much
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?
