Re: GOODBYE, MARLBORO MAN Cigarettes In Australia Will Soon Have To Be Sold In Identical Packs
I smoked for thirty years and just quit two years ago.

What a huge waste of time money and effort smoking was, so glad it's gone from my life. The cost of smoking to society is enormouns and all that profit goes to fucking rich white pricks that DO NOT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOU, YOUR HEALTH, AND YOUR FAMILY. There are centuries of generational wealth attached to this death industry.

Smokers feel so defensive about all of this, because they feel so dumb and ripped of that they are hooked on that shit and don't have the guts to get off it.

Revolutionary and rebellious smokers standing up for civil and commercial right???? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha (wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz - sorry bit of emphasema from the smokes). Give me a fuckin' break.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23343731


you're coming across as a bit of a dick. Smoking isn't illegal so anyone who wants to smoke is allowed to do so as long as you're not in a pub/club, too close to shopping centre, at the beach, in your car or anywhere else lol. So you give me a break.. P.S congrats on quitting just don't act all mighty.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26532270


Like most long time smokers, I hated smoking for years before I was finally able to kick it. I'm not acting high and mighty, I just suggest that you spend some time like I do in respiratry wards of hospitals. Nearly everyone in them is there because of smokes. Tabacco has been exploited for centuries by a collection of extremely wealthy families to the detriment of billions. If you really want to strike a blow against the powers that be, start by kicking the habit.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23343731


I agree with everything you are saying. I'm actually cutting down at the moment getting ready to quit. But i will never give other smokers a hard time because i know what its like.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26532270


Thx. I'm not giving smokers a hard time BTW. I know what it is like. I tried many times for years to stop and always failed. The last time worked but I know I have irreparable lung damage (too late, see). And what did I actually get for that? Good times? Ha ha ha.

they should ban cigarettes all together, they are a cash cow for the goverments of this world and make the poor sick and addicted... the chemicals in them make marijuana look like a herbal health potion

it's crazy how they ate still allowed to be made and sold to the public...

imagine if they sold the chemicals in a beef patty at McDonalds or in a ice cream your kid eats, they would be pulled of the shelf immediately

so wtf!

this reasoning applies to many things. so lets all wear vegan clothes, exercise like sheep, and avoid everything that could possibly do us harm. big pharma, non- 'organic' food (yeah, how do you know for sure when you cant trust anyone?) cycle everywhere on a vegan bike and wear rubber gloves and a mask to avoid inhaling and ingesting any particulates

stop worrying about everyone and trying to ban things

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27667491



It's not the bleeding obvious, man. Where exactly have you found out about the names of the families that control all of that shit? When they started? How they've kept it going? Etc etc. You never hear about that side of things. Who are the real shareholders in this death industry?

You only have to realise in the depths of your mind, with total honesty, how fucking idiotic smoking is - then you'll be free of it very quickly.

Not preaching, just saying. And the thread is fair game, mate.

Your "reasoning" is wrong. Smoking has absolutely no health benefit of any kind whatsoever, never. Nearly all of patients in respiratory clinics are there because of smoking. Nearly all lung cancer is smoking-related.

This is not a question of the "nanny state" (which I also despise; hell, I'm on GLP, right).

Imagine that heroin addicts wanted their drug legalised, along with the free market "right" to buy it OTC in colourful packages, with cool images printed thereon.

Some deal, only tabacco is already legal, and heroin is way less harmful.

It's not about supporting the corporations, but more - in the case of austalia anyway - about supporting the government through insane taxes.

The same pack of cigarettes that cost $20 in australia, cost $1 in China. The same company sells them, marlboro.

Where's that big differential going? Not to marlboro.

A few years back my friend bought back a pack of cigs from Egypt with a pic of a guy in a hospital bed on oxygen.

If people want to smoke they are going to smoke no matter what kinds of pics you put on the package. I saw a guy smoking out of his tracheotomy hole.

Tks :-). International Cigarette Prices - Do you want to know how much the cigarettes cost before you travel to a foreign country or state? Here [link to www.cigaretteprices.net] you can find international cigarette prices from all over the world. The prices are for a 20 piece pack of Marlboro (taxes included). Usually the price of similar brands like Camel, Pall Mall, Winston, Prince, Lucky Strike and Chesterfield are about the same.

What a huge waste of time money and effort smoking was, so glad it's gone from my life. The cost of smoking to society is enormouns and all that profit goes to fucking rich white pricks that DO NOT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOU, YOUR HEALTH, AND YOUR FAMILY. There are centuries of generational wealth attached to this death industry.
