Thread Name: BS: Smoking cigarettes
Subject: RE: BS: Smoking cigarettes
The price of a packet of cigarettes is a lot more than money, it's the effect on the quality of life of both the smoker and anyone who is around them, most of which the determined smoker refuses to believe. It is not just a case of what an individual choses to do to themselves but the impact of their choice may effectively remove choice from all around them. I am not being moralistic or holier than thou but I do resent not being able to enjoy amongst other things concerts that I have paid for because some self centered individual insistes on smoking and will not recognise that their "personal choice" affects others.
