Fucking Cigarettes & E-Cigarettes Jun. 25th, 2012 @ 02:36 PM Reply

So recently in Illinois there's a new price increase on cigarettes. They've already gone up $1, and they're supposed to be up to about $7.50 A PACK soon. I mean, fuck...it's even $6 for a pack of Pyramids.

Instead of buying regular cigarettes, I bought 2 disposable electronic ones. They're supposed to be equal to about 2 packs and they cost $8.50, so why not?

Those e-cigarettes lasted me about 7 hours. I smoked more because I could do it indoors and it was less harsh on the lungs, so I would take puff after puff, making those little O's with the smoke. Soon the tip started flashing and I was liek "WTF man that wasn't 2 packs....or was it?"

Now I'm out $17 bucks and I have no cigarettes.

inb4 smoking is bad

I live in Illinois as well, and the most expensive cigarettes around here are American Spirits for around $6.75 including tax. DuPage County, btw.

Us NYCers have been dealing with $11 - $12 and often times more per pack on average for very close to 2 years. It's crazy. It's just better to get cigs in New Jersey or Pennsylvania, or Vermont if anyone happens to be in or near it. I've never tried out e-cigs, and I'm not sure it's worth it.

Try to cut back if you can't afford them.
I'm not saying stop... Just try to smoke less.

Jesus Christ, that's ridiculous.

As far as I'm convinced, it's not really worth it unless you get a really expensive one that you can recharge, but even then you still have to change the cartridge periodically.

cherish each cig, and make it last as long as you can.
Or reduce your intake, and maybe do that carrot method quitters try to do.

I worked in an off-licence in England when the government increased taxes on cigarettes. Packs of 10 went up by one penny, and packs of 20 went up by two pence.

Literally every smoker that came into the shop that day complained about the price increase, as if cigarettes weren't already insanely expensive to begin with.

Decades are 3 for $6 here in Missouri. Of course, nobody smokes Decades.

I pay $4.75 for a pack of Camels. They send me coupons once a month, too.

There expensive because they know you deadbeats will buy it regardless, and the tax on cigarettes are just a subtle way to get money from stupidity.

Don't get me fucking started on fuel pricing, you cheap ass petrol gluttons.

But I smoke roll ups when I fancy them anyhow, which is just straight up more satisfying.

It's fair that the worlds largest oil consumer gets a discount compared to the rest of the world. If you want cheaper oil, strike up a deal with SA and stop complaining.

I don't smoke, and that's why in the end I'll have more money than you. But seriously, they're increasing price because they're addictive and they know at least most people will continue to buy them. It's really quite an impressive thing if you can stop.
So in the end it's all just to get more money out of you.

Then... supposing a person there smokes 1 pack every 2 weeks... then thats 22$ a month... so thats 242$ a year... 2420$ for 10 years... thats not too bad, supposing you smoke a pack every 2 weeks. Im pretty sure some people more on fast food, or alcohol. Either way, they both kill you slowly.

INORITE, FUCKING NOOBS CAN'T FUCKING READ.

Hm, I've had some experience with rechargeable e-cigarettes... A friend bought a whole box and was giving them away for free. Mine had the taste of coffee. Drained it in two days. To be honest, it's a shitty alternative.

The only pro is, that you don't smell like cigarette smoke. But then again, I kinda like that smell.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend this thing. Maybe it was the quality and the more expensive ones are better.

Where the fuck do people get this bullshit. E-cigs are a great healthy alternative to cigarettes and hardly harmful at all, it's like smoking small amounts of nicotine out of a vaporizer.

If you have any concern for your health, stick to electronic cigarettes. My father switched to electronic cigarettes about a year ago and his health has drastically improved since then with no reduction to the time spent smoking.

I'd support an unbounded monthly increase on cigarette taxes, just to watch addicts become increasingly angry, then desperate, then finally overcome the addiction.

Too bad time travel doesn't exist yet. Then you smokers could go back to the 50s where your retarded, backwards habit was accepted, and cigarettes were much cheaper. Not only that but here in 2012 you'll all be dead or dying from cancer and we'd get the pleasure of seeing you suffer. Everyone would win.
