My plan is to just switch to the E-Cigarette.
These new ones taste worse, sometimes create mini explosions in them..... if you smoke em you know those POPS!
And 1-5 of my cigarettes that are left for awhile, actually stop burning...the rest don't.......
Nearly all cigarettes sold in the U.S. are now "Fire-Safe Certified"(FSC) since it's no longer cost effective for Big Tobacco to produce both FSC and non-FSC cigarettes. On January 1, 2010 FSC laws took effect in eleven more states, bringing the total to 42 states that require all cigarettes to be FSC. This leaves Wyoming as the only state to have not yet passed FSC legislation. The FSC cigarette controversy isn't new, in fact we've been discussing the issue in our forums since the summer of '08, but many smokers are only now becoming aware of the problem. Seemingly overnight and without warning, people are noticing their cigarettes taste bad and are making them ill.

I am not buying the whole fire thing for the reason. I dont mean any bias thoughts towards anyone that knows of a fire from a cig left burning...but I am just not buying this as being the reason. I see it as being an excuse....to load the cig with more @#&*.
Hell if someone chooses to smoke tobacco...that is their choice, it grows from mother earth....let people be I say unless its really influencing harm to other people.
Yes second hand smoke does alot of damage...I am all for it not being allowed in public indoor places and I support the idea of parents not smoking in their homes or cars. But I dont worry about getting T-boned on Friday nights while driving through the city due to smokers
Little rant there
