Ciggarette prices are unbelievable! The gov. keeps raising the tax. I wonder how that's all working out in New York at,  15 a pack the last I heard. NY is the 2nd highest in the world. Canada is the highest at 20 a pack last I heard a couple of years ago. There are alot of people that cannot afford these prices. a pack a day habbit is alot, what about the 2-3 pack a day habbit people. If they cant quit and dont have the cash what are people going to do? I wouldn't want to be around any of them when their niccoteene fit kicks in!

Hi Jackie, I'm a smoker, and used to smoke cigarettes, but now the prices are £10.00 per pack here, phew !
So now I roll my own, and it is much cheaper and I smoke less as well, which is a good thing.
We have very high taxes over here as well. Products go up , but our wages never do. ; (

Agreed!
Some see space as the void and time as a constant when neither is true.

Well, the wages better go up soon, or people will be dancing in the streets. I normally smoke alot less, but now cigs are a form of tension reliever for me so I smoke more now than ever. I will try the niccorette gum out.

I guess everyone is in the same boat, just gotta get through it, till things get a little easier. Where theres a will theres a way.

Yeah, packaging does this to fool the eye. Like chip bags half empty.

Good Morning!

I dont like to think about what goes on behind the scenes. Do you know of any good veggie dishes ? I'm sure there are many, I like veggie lasana by Stoffers, not bad for frozen.

Ok, got a credit score of 800, and still turned down for a small loan, I don't get it! I thought all you need is a decent credit core to get a loan from a bank, I'm confused. No wonder our economy sks! I wonder if this happens to alot of people???

Will have to do research on this subject. And what banks are fraudulent, so I never go there for a loan again.
