  • Well, I suppose it would depend on how badly you thought you needed it. There are going to be those who say...to hell with that because its too expensive and others who hang on because....well, its worth it to them. It just depends on what your currency is. I am glad I don't drink or smoke or play the lotto compulsively, but those damn rx drugs are going up too...LOL!

  • I wish they would cost that much where I live so my husband would stop smoking. Only certain areas make the cost go up, like in New York it cost $10 I think for a pack. I think smoking is stupid, there is no purpose for it. This may sound stupid (I am so against drugs) but at least weed does something for people, it gets cancer patients to eat! Alcohol is good for thinning out your blood but what does ciggies do for people? Not a thing, so glad they are starting to go up in cost!

  • I say addiction...how many "metabolically challenged" people have you seen at fast food establishments or Dairy Queen as opposed to the salad bar? How many "health nuts" have you seen smoking outside the doctor's office/hospital as opposed to the gym?

    Americans are generally a lazy group who have a lot of difficulty with staving off immediate gratification! Americans don't want to work hard to get what they want...from food to careers. They all wish they could take a magic pill to lose weight, and be Vice President within 6 months of starting a job.

  • Salad bar can be more dangerous to your waist line then fast food place.
