    when the cost is high, it will lead to consider quiting cigarette. eg... myself and my brother both quite smoking when they increased the cigarette to 20/-. It is really NOT worth it....

    How the cigarettes can be lit at both ends. At one end government wants to ban the smoking , In the other end it wants to gain income from it . It is also a miracle in Asia .
