Sorry i was not trying to start anything i just think it's all BS i just over heard someone the other day saying someone they know was able to get SS because alcoholism is " a disease"
well then why is smoking not a disease ???? but its not and even if it were id be saying it was BS too. So now all they do is push hate on people who do smoke and keep raising the tax on it as well
Since 1998, governments at all levels have collected more than $444 BILLION in cigarette taxes and payments from smokers.
The government per-pack profit from cigarettes in 2011 was $3.68 (or 66 percent of the cost of a pack of cigarettes); more than ten times the profit of R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company
Adult smokers make up about 19 percent of the population, yet smokers as a group are the only ones singled out for more and more "sin" taxes.
Cigarette tax increase proposals are made frequently - usually to fund new or expanded government programs
Me nor my wife drinks, never had the urge to do so, yes i smoke cigarette's but i have the common courtesy to not smoke around people who don't or have quit
Again sorry for the rant and not trying to piss anyone off
