Are there any smokers on here? How much are cigarettes where you are?

I'm just wondering, my husband and I bought ours until they went over $6 a pack. He smokes 2 packs a day and I smoke a pack every 2 days. Do the math, that's $470 a month, easy, sometimes more, we now spend less than $100 per MONTH and neither of us smoke any less!

  • Well if we buy Pall-malls here they are about $4 a pack. But we only buy packs for our car. We do the whole roll your own, we can buy enough tobacco and filters for about a week for $12! And since my fiancee stays at home, and I only take 4 cigs to work, the rolling works for us. I just quit a little over a week ago though, since we are TTC baby 2 and I already suspect that i have. But I think since I quit he has been smoking more LOL!

  • We started rolling our own also, tubes are $2 per carton and I order tobacco online. My last order was $72 and that was for the whole month including an $8 delivery charge from UPS. If interested, I'll give you the site where I order mine.

  • My husband and I both smoke a pack a day. Ours cost about 35 dollars a carton, in MO. We would love to be able to quit, but it definately is very hard to quit. I wish the hypnotist that came around last year would come back and have the group sessions again. Last year they had 3 in neighboring towns but we couldn't make it to any of them.

  • Here in TN my DH only buys the "buy one get one free" deals when he smokes, and so it usually ends up costing about 5-6$ for two packs. Regular cigarettes are anywhere from 4-6 dollars each. They just raised our tobacco tax here so it might not be that cheap for long even. . .

  • I stopped smoking years ago, but last week I bought my brother a pack of camel special lights here in Pennsylvania, they were $5.75. I used to smoke Capris's (skinny old lady cigarettes) and they were always more expensive so I asked just out curiosity how much a pack costs and the lady said they were $7.50, I am so glad I quit smoking.
