No smoking in public places :roll: Yet they don't mind the taxes they get from people buying cigarettes?

They'll be taxing us for the oxygen we breathe next :finger:

How about we all give up smoking and watch the government go bankrupt? :mwahaha:

i dont think that the government are taxing smokers so they get more money, they do it so people will be like "wow, cigarettes are getting expensive, i'd better cut down"

nice concept though

So true. The taxes that smokers pay are supposed to go towards the supposed extra costs that smokers account for in the health system, but they usually end up funding some random projects.

I'm not denying that smoking is unhealthy, but I do think that the ads depicting the dangerousness of smoking are grossly overrated. I also think it's quite pathetic that people are so quick to jump on us smokers as if we're vile and disgusting :roll:

Anyway enough ranting, I faved this not just because of the concept, but because it's a damn awesome shot :)

Thank you very much :heart:

I don't deny it's unhealthy either, there's no doubting it, but they are my lungs afterall lol ..and whatever happened to choice and/or freedom? No such thing anymore!

Yeah I hate it when people jump on us too - Although I do love it when people stand sometimes and glare at me as I light a cig in the street, usually outside a shop or whatever, as if I've just shot the prime minister (no such luck) and I just blow the smoke their way lol :finger: :lmao:

I could listen to you all day! :hug:

Thanks for the :+fav: :heart:

Exactly! It's our choice to smoke. It's a shame that our freedom to do so is being taken away. Over here, in most areas smoking is banned unless it's an open area. I love smoking whenever I'm near people just to piss them off...immature maybe, but who knows when I won't be allowed to anymore. Have to make the most of it now ;)

I'm glad I'm not the only person with a similar opinion :)

And you're welcome :hug:
