Cigarette prices

How much should cigarettes cost?

This thread in inspired by seeing a Facebook post saying

It’s sad to think Westerners will never know the joy of buying individual cigarettes from corner store

Should it be possible to buy single cigarettes? I personally would love it if I could buy a single cigarette from behind the bar.

I can enjoy a maximum of three cigarettes in a night where I’m shitfaced (for me smoking is like maccy d’s, after less than 3 pints it’s horrific but after 7 pints it’s fucking great).

If I could buy a single cigarette for a stupidly high price, I’d probably do so now and then. Better than buying 20 packs right?

So I guess this is three questions

How much for a pack of 20?
Should it be possible to buy 10 packs or singles?
How much should each of these cost?

Packs of 10/20 - I think keep inflating the price as has been happening for ages, must be well over a tenner for 20’s now?
Single cigarettes - £2 each

Do you reckon smoking cigarettes will be fully obsolete at any point in human history?


#3

So many questions and he chooses to ignore them all and ask one of his own. The arrogance!

Sorry Balonz and even greater apologies to Wiggy. In this of all weeks I should be more tolerant of a thread’s authorial intent.

Found a pack with 5 left and im going to smoke them even though smoking is repulsive because boohoo im stressed


#6

surely smoking on relives stress due to the addiction? so if you’re not addicted you will just feel a bit shit afterwards

my sarcasm detector is broken today btw

A friend went to investigate tobacco farming and basically likened it to slave labour. It’s a pretty disturbing sort of thing, really.


#8

smoking will always have an appeal to some people… i think people being addicted and smoking in public will be become extremely rare tho

if you’re considering it then yes

as i assume you will have company from those who might appreciate them

A lot depends on where you will be, Christopher. Want to smoke a massive fucker for 90 minutes under a beer garden umbrella in the pouring rain while men dance the lambada with your partner indoors?


#12

Yeah they’re too expensive, they’ll increasingly be sold in greater bulk for more and more, but we’ll carry on smoking them forever because it’s enjoyable. Our governments love a good piss in the wind.


#13

this has reminded me of a foot long spl**f i once rolled on NYE

took an hour to finish the fucker

ABBA sounded fucking SICK afterwards tho


#14

How come he gets to ask his own question?


#15

Have done this many a time. Always regretted it. Like huffing on an exhaust pipe.


#16

i will be at some with a maximum of 6 other people, at least three of these will definitely not want a cigar (one of them is a baby) - the other 3 are unknowns
it is a RISKY decision

Trying to be kind to him at the moment, I see dark times ahead.


#18

Just made myself laugh in the office… nearly time to leave.

not giving babies cigars means you’ve passed part 1 of the cigar users test, well done
