I am a smoker, and have tried to stop on a few occasions. I never give up trying to give up
That said, I do believe a total ban on cigarettes is in the offing. When I go to purchase cigarettes in the UK now we cannot see them at the counter (its like that in most stores now). They are kept behind a shutter or "under the counter".
They have been rumors in parliament that they want to push for all cigarette packets to have no colored packaging. Many want all cigarette packets to be plain white, or cream colored.
I believe there is a serious drive to push cigarettes out of the UK altogether.
The question I am wondering is, when will they try to introduce this legeslation? And what will be the ramifications on civil liberties and the public backlash.
I know I get a little grumpy if I dont have a cig, imagine 500,000? Grumpy smokers!
